To Think You Went To Journalism School…

…in order to write stories like this:

An American actor featured in the Star Trek television series and films has thanked a County Durham drag performer for highlighting a town mayor’s social media posts about gay people and Muslims.

I….

I can’t even…

Actor and activist, George Takei used his Facebook account to publicly thank Tess Tickle for her campaign condemning a stream of posts by former Ferryhill Mayor, Cllr Richard Smith, which labelled homosexuality as a sin and described “one man and one woman” as “God’s order”.

Once again I see ‘hate speech’ that isn’t anything of the sort, merely the teachings of a holy book a man claims to live by. While pointedly ignoring that the holy book the other targets of his posts live by says nothing really too different.

Still, a drag queen got some publicity, so I guess it’s all good?

    I’m guessing Tess Tickle is not his/her real name?
