The new word of the month: Gaystapo

The Church of England Newspaper called gay campaingners Nazis recently. Well, one of its contributors, a right-wing, nasty piece of work called Alan Craig, did.

He coined the portmanteau word “Gaystapo”. The newspaper defended it.

Well, it’s his opinion, but to label as Nazis some of the people whom the Nazis sent to concentration camps and gassed is rather under the belt. The man must himself have Nazi sympathies even to suggest such a thing.

Anyway, in the Huffington Post, Patrick Strudwick has a go at him. It’s worth a read. And there are some links there, too.
