    “these are troubling signs”: JA’s witch ‘homo’ hunt continues…

    Yeah. this came up on B+F last week. Thread started well – before the default reggae attitude kicked in…

    Thanks for the kind words btw… ‘Maddy Maddy Cry’… what a tune. That and ‘Man Tonic’ are prolly my favourites of the set..

    thanks for the link, droid. i’m actually surprised that that conversation stayed at the level it did. btw, the link to “homo hunt” is to another story (in the star) — that one more disturbing, i think (despite lack of refs to “tight pants”) — about three young boys accused of being gay, one of whom was beaten badly, another missing. i found the community commentary in that piece to be rather refreshing, though it was understandably anonymous.

    Yowch. Didnt see that – its a nasty one…. i thought you had to at least hit puberty before being officially targeted by the Homofinder General.

    i found myself marveling at this same brick beef behemoth when i got to visit chiacgo last sweltering summer… it is odd to see it turn up again!

    I posted about that valentine’s day near-lynching a couple days ago. are things ramping up or news just getting out? depressing either way.

    and seriously, check Nigeria’s newest proposed anti-gay legislation. unreal. (http://direland.com)

    ‘maddy maddy cry’ was a big hit at the time, I recall….quite a few odd tunes followed in its wake, as they do in JA
