I do believe in a broad spectrum LGBTQ alliance. BUT...

Sometimes it gets hard.

Like this morning, when Stonewall's researcher was on the today programme talking about the scandal of the so-called 'discretion rule' under which the Home Office will disallow asylum to lesbians and gay men on the grounds that they could choose to pass as straight and avoid negative legal consequences in their homelands. Needless to say, he did not mention bi or trans asylum seekers.

As I said in another context, 'any incompetence sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from malice.'
