Someone who was born sensitive, and who, in the cut and thrust world of the playground, has accepted that they are somehow different and who have then accepted a label handed to them.
Before the second world war Britain had lots of sensitive people. It was ok to walk down the street talking about poetry or to sip tea and play cricket. Then that nasty artist adolf came along and told the world that it was evil to hate homosexuals. So we relaxed the definition of the word. With less sensitive people, society became a more violent place in which to live. Perhaps soon we will have succeeded in breeding out sensitivity. Then we will be a nation of soldiers, a nation of super men and women. Perverse innit?
when you meet someone you love, should you express that love physically?
Even if it means being gay?
