The S-word

Share This

You’ve got to wonder.

Both Nick Assinder and Guido appear to think the phrase “straight choice” is a reference to a candidate’s sexuality and not a common term to mean “simple”.

Given that the Labour candidate in the Dunfermline and West Fife is 8 months pregnant, I don’t think anyone is suggesting she hasn’t had sex with a man at least once in her life.

The fact that both of them seem to think this is even noteworthy would rather suggest that they aren’t entirely au fait with what the fuss was about in the first place. Give me strength.

  1. It would be a bit queer if a political party stopped using normal english just because a bbc journalist is ignorant!

  2. Excuse me for being naive but before I read all the fuss in the papers it never enterred my head that the term ‘straight’ was applied to those not gay.
