How We Appear To Other Countries
Many conservatives and those with a narrow view of the world don’t really care how we look abroad, but seeing other evolved beings can be a reality check. British PM Gordon Brown, having just visited the US, has some unkind words for California’s Proposition 8. At a reception for LGBT leaders, Brown referred to Prop 8 as “unacceptable” and added,”This shows why we have always got to be vigilant, always got to fight homophobic behavior and any form of discrimination.” Britain legalized same sex partnerships in 2005, and the Downing Street event was the first reception there for LGBT campaigners.
It probably never occurs to the haters how they’re viewed worldwide. After all, they don’t think there’s a world outside of America. Make that outside straight America.Click here for reuse options!
