Was She Drunk?

Well, I did expect Julie Bindel to come out with something utterly stupid in response to the protests about her Stonewall Award, but she has managed to exceed my wildest imaginings. Not content with having another go at the transgendered people we already knew she hates, she has launched an attack on all forms of sexuality that she finds repulsive:

I for one do not wish to be lumped in with an ever-increasing list of folk defined by “odd” sexual habits or characteristics. Shall we just start with A and work our way through the alphabet? A, androgynous, b, bisexual, c, cat-fancying d, devil worshipping. Where will it ever end?

So there you are, people. Thankfully she didn’t get as far as P in the alphabet, but I’m sure we all know what she would have chosen there, don’t we.

Really, was she drunk when she wrote this? Maybe a little to much champers in celebration of the award? For once I’m not going to complain about The Guardian giving her a platform, because this petulant and selfish outburst has done more to damage her cause than anything I could have said.

  1. I read this, and thought, “What starts with ‘P’? Perverts? Patriots?”

    I wasn’t about to ask anybody. It wasn’t until 10 minutes later when I was in the kitchen making a salad when the light dawned.

  2. Is she trying to pose us a challenge, here? It ends with “zoophile,” as everyone knows. (Come on, Julie, how hard was that?)

    As for the other letters, clearly “G” is for “gay”, “S” is for “straight,” and “J” is for “Julie Bindel.” I’m not sure what the canonical answer ought to be for most of the others…
