'Cocaine n fitba mak homosexuals ay us aw' - the great bard Rabbie Burns, according to Irvine Welsh, in If You Liked School You'll Love Work.
Friday night, there was a dinner for the full complement of deifheids. The cellmate went along, but I wasn't invited. Result!
Next day, she said she had observed how the male deifheids do a lot of their bonding over a shared hatred of homosexuals. That's interesting.
I was fascinated to realise that several PC males, who might have been expected to at least feign respect for sexual minorities, are homophobes when they get together.
Deifheids enjoying a whinge session is hardly surprising, because a deifheid by definition has to talk about himself, and that includes his complaints and resentments. .
And yet in a way it is surprising, because a deifheid by definition is too self absorbed to listen to another whinger.
It all balances up.
I'm just thankful that (1) I didn't have to waste an evening listening to it, and (2) I myself never whinge about anything.
