The Blind Man and the Gay Dog
As you know I love dogs almost as much as I hate bigots. So I found this story particularly disturbing.
An Australian restaurant that refused a blind man entry because a waiter thought his seeing-eye dog was "gay" has been ordered to apologize and pay compensation.
The restaurant's owners said a misunderstanding had arisen between Jolly's female companion and a waiter who understood the woman "to be saying she wanted to bring a gay dog into the restaurant"
And our dog was even more upset...
Because although he's a little flamboyant, he's as straight as a bone eh?
So I had to tell him we love him anyway.
Seriously though...can you believe that story? And the world we're forced to live in.
Homophobia...is it prejudice or is it MADNESS?
And when will it go away...
