If there’s one thing we appreciate in a homophobe, it’s forthrightness. Best to know where people stand on the gays, rather than being surprised down the road.
Take, for example, embattled Welsh magistrate Byron Butler. He recently appeared on a BBC special, The Only Gay In The Village, on which gay pop star Ian Watkins asked Butler his opinion on the gays. So, Butler told him:
We haven’t got much time for them.
Well, I think probably it’s a suspicion of the mainstream that they perhaps will interfere with young people and so on and that’s historically been the case. That is the danger.
“Paedophiles, solidophiles [sic], not necessarily but they do, don’t they, that’s the reality.
And which reality would that be? Not one with which we’re familiar. We don’t even know what a “solidophile” could even be.
While we’re pondering Butler’s grasp on the here and now, a judicial advisory committee’s considering whether Butler should be forced to resign. Butler, the mensch, has “agreed” to sit on the sidelines while his peers decide his fate.
Butler hasn’t said much about the incident, although he did offer this: “You will print bad news, but you won’t print good news.” He then slammed the door in the reporter’s face.
Twll din pob ceidwadwr.
Yes, because straight men never engaged in pederasty with young girls …
That magistrate is very clearly an idiot, I hope he’s fired and never allowed to hold a post of such importance again.
“Solidophile”: someone who drops anchor in Poo Bay?
Hmm. The “sic” in square brackets there is in the story as it appears on the BBC website (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/7333209.stm), and no doubt in the ICWales news site you sw it on, so they were wondering, too, about this word “solidophile”. So was I when I blogged it at http://ptt-blog.blogspot.com/2008/04/magistrate-singer-and-solidophiles.html. The his it gets now when I Google the word are from people like you and me, who have queried it and so contributed to its viral-like multiplication in cyberspace.
solidophiles ??.. never heard of it but…with lateral thinking..i may have the answer. !
The ‘little minded man ‘ with obvious limited education could be using spelling the word paedophile as ‘pee’ dophile..taking it as reference to front entry. This would translate,,in his tiny little brain to a differnt name for ‘ rear entry ‘…he used ‘ solid ‘ ophile… Does that make any sense ?

BBC HYS COMMENT:
Can anyone tell me what a “solidophile” is – as reported by BBC Wales?
I’ve a long career in digging holes and tunneling and I’ve never heard of the term.
Does it have to do with “going over the top”?
Sadly, I’m still none the wiser..
It’s the sort of word you feel should exist – yet it’s obviously been overlooked.
Although the Judge is clearly an idiot – the reporter who then wrote [SIC] afterwards has caused me (and others) angst – simply because if I don’t know what a “solidophile” is, how am I able to understand if I might be a “solidophobe”?
Example: If you buy a bed with a firm mattress – are you a solidophile? If you buy a waterbed – are you a solidophobe?
Note to self: I really must get more.
