Misogyny and gay slurs cost Labour MP Jared O’Mara equalities role

An old-fashioned Leftist

The Labour MP who defeated Nick Clegg at the general election resigned from parliament’s women and equalities select committee yesterday after it emerged that he had made misogynistic and homophobic comments online.

Jared O’Mara, who become MP for Sheffield Hallam in June, made the posts on music websites in 2002 and 2004, when he stood for election to Sheffield city council.

In the posts Mr O’Mara described gay men as “fudge packers” and “poofters”, suggested that overweight people did not “deserve our respect” and invited the pop group Girls Aloud to have an orgy with him. He suggested that it would be “quite funny” if Jamie Cullum, the jazz pianist, was “sodomised with his own piano” until he died

Interesting how his comments were labeled as misogynistic and homophobic and yet the examples given in the article were clearly neither.

They were inappropriate and hateful but none of the examples given expressed a hatred of women nor a fear of homosexuals.

Anon 5:53 AM - In the new reality, any statements that are not 100% supportive of the Fabulous Lifestyle are homophobic, and any statements that imply a woman is in any way sexually attractive is misogynistic.
