Yay, Britain!

We just love you guys!

The Supreme Court of Britain ruled today that homosexuals living in parts of the world which aren't so open-minded can find refuge in their country.

Sadly, there are still many places in the world where homosexuals face constant fear of persecution for their orientation. Now, if they like, they can call Britain their home and will be granted asylum.

Deputy President of the Supreme Court, Lord Hope of Craighead, summed it up perfectly, saying:

“To compel a homosexual person to pretend that his sexuality does not exist or to suppress the behaviour by which it manifests itself is to deny him his fundamental right to be who he is. Homosexuals are as much entitled to freedom of association with others who are of the same sexual orientation as people who are straight.”

Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

We're so proud of this! A beautiful and important step for equality!

    So you're moving? Good riddance flabby.



  4. 4

    amazing!!!

    This is a good thing I guess but it's definitely not as simple as ringing Britain and saying "I'm gay let me in!!". It's gonna be far more complicated than that, your gonna have to prove to authorities that you're facing a very real threat in your homeland for a start, simply being from certain countries won't be enough. I'm just suprised Fatboy Perez hasn't given the credit to Madonna for this…

    Move over Jihadi, there's some new kids in town.

    I guess for $20 million the proceeds of the sale of this blog even a guy might be inclined to blow you or pretend to like you romantically.

    uh… i don't think the brits will be that stoked about this… it's a noble thing, but they're already peeved with all the immigrants that have come into the country in the past 10 years. immigrants from all over eastern europe, africa, india… o_O



  9. 9

    you make it sound so simple. its not going to be easy…especially as the coalition government is cracking down on immigration! the people are going to be in serious need of escaping their own country to be granted asylum. but i do agree with one thing u said….Britain rules!!!



  10. 10

    SO PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE PERVERTS IN BRITAIN? NO WONDER THEY ARE A COUNTRY FULL OF SICKOS.



  11. 11

    GO BRITAIN i'm proud to call it home and now the persecuted everywhere can too!



  12. 12

    Sounds like a new horror movie. Invasion of the Homos

    England sure ain't Arizona!

  15. 15

    That's great! Do we have this in US?



  16. 16

    Yay, Britain!



  17. 17

    LMAO, they're going to have people flooding in and pretending to be gay to get in. Britain will now be a Gay Country.



  18. 18

    Re: MarioMonjack – this "country full of sickos" also has one of the greatest economies in the world as well as health care. Its also astonishing that this "country full of sickos" has established the greatest universities in the world including Harvard in the U.S. I'm Norwegian and Estonian; but I lived in England all my life, and yes it is as beautiful of a country as it seems.



  19. 19

    Does that mean: All homo Pakis in and all the other Pakis out? That's awesome!!!

    I think this is an amazing act for bringing in equality for homosexuals but i do feel it has it down side. by allowing refuge in the uk means that less may be done in the countries they are leaving. surely it would be better to keep fighting (in the most peaceful sense of the word) for equality within these countries



  21. 21

    Kewl



  22. 22

    Ironic when you think about it…Americans are going to start fleeing to England to escape the religious persecution they're experiencing here.
    I would laugh if it wasn't so sad.



  23. 23

    Here in the U.S. we are encouraging people with specialized job skills to emigrate to our country. We want engineers, scientists, doctors, computer science students.

    The U.K. will make provisions for homosexuals who face persecution at home; they will have an easier go of it trying to legally establish residency in the U.K.. While this may be a lofty humanitarian gesture, I have to wonder whether this is in Albion's best interests.



  24. 24

    My offer still stands, Porky Pedo, I will fly you by private to Iran.



  25. 25

    SUPER COOL



  26. 26

    Hasn't Canada been doing that for a while?



  27. 27

    Since you no longer write or care about this site, I'm guessing all your efforts are now focused on creating a NAMBLA branch in Great Britain. I hope the next little boy you molest bites your dick off.

    Re: archimmes – Na, we just ask for the poor and hungry..



  29. 29

    Sooo many asylum seekers will abuse this and claim to be homosexual for refuge. How can they turn away straight people who fear their life but accept a homosexual. Thats discrimination.



  30. 30

    so so so sad you americans are ! we in GREAT britan find yous so amusing you claim to be the land of the free but you are nothing but. A country that condems gays but kills its own inorder to get oil a country that is more obsessed with being a celebrity than knowing what real life is all about i feel sorry for yous as i can wake up everyday in the uk and be 100 percent free. The biggest mistake europe did was inventing America !



  31. 31

    The Judge actually said that 'gay men should be free to enjoy Kylie concerts and cocktails' haha



  32. 32

    im actually pretty annoyed at this, listen this isnt britain anymore there are tons of immigrants here i mean, thats not a problem, but people like my parents who have worked for their whole life paid all their taxes dont get fuck all now?! all the immigrants come in and get money for doing nothing? i think its wrong people take advantage of our country and im sick of it as are many other british people.



  33. 33

    Re: MarioMonjack
    You're part of the reason this kind of thing has to be put into action. They're Not perverts. They'll Just be free to love who they want. You're obviously one of those the narrow minded people still living in the stone age which cause this.



  34. 34

    And British teachers are still legally banned from discussing homosexuality in an form in their classrooms.



  35. 35

    well we dont love you.



  36. 36

    Re: K28Pea
    to you and everyone else criticising it:
    NO it's not discrimination: it's one of MANY ways immigrants can show "if i went back home they would kill me", such as if a straight/gay person was of the wrong religion etc.
    NO it won't be abused easily: you'd need absolute 100% clear proof that you are a gay person and you personally would be in VERY serious danger if you came home.
    NO it's not the end of the world - 99.9999% of all immigrants have the jobs english people don't want AND they pay taxes. It's only the REALLY rare exceptions you hear about in the newspapers.
    Try doing your own research and use your brains instead of believing rubbish.

    GET OVER IT.



  37. 37

    sit's crazy how the same people who burn their flag will now fock to their country pretending to be gay. With all the resentment building over mass immigration into the UK and now having to deal with a flood of gays, it should certainly be interesting to watch the irruptions as the UK goes to shit! Im intrigued. a western power implodes by becoming home to the human trash of the entire planet!



  38. 38

    Excellent.



  39. 39

    Re: racheey – Here..here…as we are in Canada.



  40. 40

    that's right, let every fucking bastard into the country. black white yellow who gives a shit just come on in! this is england! take our wages, jobs and homes and don't feel guilty, will you! :)



  41. 41

    Britian is going to smell like ass



  42. 42

    As if we haven't got enough bloody immigrants!



  43. 43

    and I sure they're all
    very proud



  44. 44

    and I sure they're all
    very proud
    course they're probably banking on thegays with money..



  45. 45

    it's really funny
    you people live on a rock
    when is enough enough?
    When that thing flips over?



  46. 46

    Oh great thats what we need…more people coming into britain, like we havent got enough already! I'm not homophobic at all but this is ridiculous, we're tryna get rid of immigrants and get our jobs back and there letting more people into the country! its not like we a fucking huge country and we let people in with open arms! this will only cause bad things…



  47. 47

    this is a great thing a lot of countries are very hostile towards gays so its no different from being any other sort of asylum seeker. we took in a load of asian ugandans when idi amin was in power so theres no reason why we cant do the same for gays now
