Julie Burchill : Transsexual Hate Speech

by duncanr

julie birchellWe have decided to withdraw from publication the Julie Burchill comment piece ‘Transsexuals should cut it out’.

Freshly F*****: A Rant About Bloggers

by UniSciKill

I don’t really care about the Freshly Pissed section of WordPress, except for the occasional wish not to see the damn page every time I log in. I know, I know – that’s the whole shitty point of the set-up.  Usually, I ignore the posts featured there and skip straight to my favorite blog, the madhatters, and comment or post based on my mood. Sometimes, out of curiosity I will make the gargantuan mistake of clicking on a Pucked Fress article because the title sounded vaguely interesting to me.  I should have known better.

by duncanr

South African radio presenter Mark Esterhuysen was supposed to be introducing the 1.0 am early morning news

Instead, he delivered a personal rant, managing to squeeze 13 ‘f’ words into his tirade before startled producers pulled the plug on him

Oh, need I tell you he’s been sacked ?

Pope Benedict XVI, at the start of his week long trip to Africa , has already given us some classic quotes…

“The Catholic Church is at the forefront at the battle against aids” (perhaps if they switched sides fewer people would die?)

“you can’t resolve it (the aids problem) with the distribution of condoms, on the contrary, it increases the problem” (How exactly?)

“The saving message of the Gospel needs to be proclaimed loud and clear so that the light of Christ can shine into the darkness of people’s lives,”  (as they all suffer and die from aids!)
