Words: Your Horse is Gay

 

Warning: May Offend Gays, Police Officers, Horses or Those Who Love or Hate Them

Possibly Gay Horse

Brit Sam Brown, a student at Oxford, was arrested a few years ago during a night out, when he ask a mounted police officer “Excuse me, do you realize your horse is gay?”

He was charged under Section Five of Britain’s Public Order Act for uttering in this case, a “homophobic insult.”

Apparently the unsolicited observation of the horse’s sexuality was deemed an insult as if it is automatically insulting to be gay.

 

 

Enter Mr. Bean

Mr. Bean

Rowan Atkinson, a.k.a., Mr. Bean, has been in the vanguard of encouraging a change to the public law that would result in the word “insulting” being removed.

Bean, incurably silly, is the perfect person to lead a crusade on the absurd.

But the real issue is not the notion of an “insult” but rather, how police officers misuse laws to punish petty or boorish behavior they seem not to like.

In Britain, at least, laws are being amended to protect the citizens from the police.

Eric I am shocked that someone as intelligent as you would go for the simple race card. That is just way too easy my friend. I thought you could do better at finding some real issues with Ted other than labeling him as a racist right from the get go. I really don't like what…

The left's heads are exploding early.....all the snow this winter has caused a lot of pent up anxiety. Hopefully you don't subscribe to MSNBC's Jamilah Lemieux, who thinks that those who listen to country music are evil racists.....just because Rafael said he likes a little country music....SMH
