Britain’s complex can NOT possibly win, if our government tries to interfere they call us “Imperialistic” and if we don’t they call our nation “Lazy and Ignorant”, there is no position the government can take that pleases anyone.
Personally I feel there has been too much time passed, the government of these former colonies need to start looking a what the people in each country needs and work towards that, Britain has been THE SINGLE MOST forward former colonial power in offering assistance to nations genuinely trying.
I can’t help but feel Robertson is going for the tired “British Guilt” instead of objectively looking at the realities in each nation, merely lazily stating that Britain is solely guilty of things passed and enforced decades [even centuries] after it happened is helping nobody now.
I’m sick and tired of that old tirade too. It doesn’t work any more. Those commonwealth nations are free and independent countries. The UK is damned if it does, damned if it doesn’t condemn them. If the UK can abolish its own discriminatory laws in 1967, South Africa, India, Canada, Australia and New Zealand did, then so can the rest of them without any input from the UK. Robertson isn’t aware that the UK gives financial aid to those commonwealth countries and that’s one area where I can agree that it should stop altogether.
This is one of the best article brought out by queerty this year and should be awarded the Most Gay Article Award of 2012; for actually defending and forwarding the gay agenda instead of some other one….
Why do gay white men get tired when the truth about their country’s activities and its consequences on other nations are brought forth… especially when they don’t seem to mind shedding crocodile, colonial tears over the condition of gay men in Uganda and Africa . Are Asian (and African) homosexuals and their lives and gayness to be ignored simply because they are Asians/Africans and notof much sexual worth to the average gay westerner?This is not about Britain winning or losing; This is about gay people and their lives…
How can you deny that the laws that were put in place by the English and their Empire with their colonial might not have have a lasting social and legal influence on the colonized population? It is hight time that gay white men take their anti afro-Asian racial hate garbage …Out of gay spaces…..
@alexoloughlin: Don’t get drawn in, that’s what it wants.
Good to see certain peoples true colours come out and which side so called oppressed people really stand….
