...anyone who says our society must force people to expose themselves to those of the opposite sexual orientation, is not decent.

So you mean if we force the gay to be exposed to the straight, we are treating the gay indecently?  Because you didn't specify which direction the hate was supposed to go there, Black Beans.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Watches – Thalassa (only French people would know it);


We have Thalassa here, but it's part of 'Global Village' which includes stuff from other sources.

http://www.sbs.com.au/shows/globalvillage

It's a wonderful programme, I watch it once or twice a week. There's faaaar too much French content though for me to be a truly regular watcher, and I don't like their current 'schools' series particularly.
