Most people who read this blog know that I am a straight down the middle boring traditionalist. Yes I have strong views about government but generally I like to live and let live. I understand and realise that what rocks your boat is different for all of us. In that respect I will accept any kind of behaviour as long as it doesn't offend.
I am becoming increasingly annoyed at the homosexual theme which is now pervading Emmerdale. This is a family soap for heaven's sake, broadcast at 7pm when my granddaughters are watching... well actually not watching anymore because mummy is angry.
Now I can understand how minority groups wish to advance their cause. I can understand how these minority groups want us to understand their plight, their feelings and their cause. But... will they not understand and acknowledge that the very thought of any sexual advance from a same sex person is actually totally abhorrent to most of us. We don't want to watch it! We actually wince at the thought of it!
I cannot even contemplate kissing (never mind anything else) another man (other than a Gary Neville embrace) and at my age no other man would even think about kissing me. I will accept that there is a minority group who have different sexual values to the rest of us. Who cares? But I do care when someone tries to parade this in front of my granddaughters as normal behaviour. Someone on the Emmerdale production team has an agenda but it is the wrong platform for most of us.
There it is... I await the flak... but someone had to object. To promote a campaign of same sex sexuality at 7pm in the evening is wrong but that is probably the point. They are waiting for a pleb like me to object. Well ... I walked into the trap because I am almost 70 but I still know what is right and what is wrong and I really do bloody object!!
