"Edge" left out the juicy bits, literally and metaphorically.

The original reportage: "Craig Kirkwood, 31, used a photo of himself posing naked with a bunch of flowers to promote his shop With Love in Paisley, west Scotland, days before it opened."

Still no explanation in that article about what her motivation for the alleged posting of homophobic versions of that photo might have been.

In any event, who wouldn't want their florist to be a gay man, given prevailing stereotypes about artistic temperament and taste [sic] and so forth?

But she sounds like a real pistil, don't she?

I don't get it. He made the picture to advertise his shop. She helped him advertise by spreading the info around. Where's the crime?

Good, then you won't mind when someone obtains a photo of you, writes homophobic slurs all over it, and posts it around your town. Starting with the door of your house of worship of hate.

That will explain to the good townfolk why an uber christianist like you would defy the buybull and get a divorce.

She altered it by adding homophobic slurs and spreading them around town.

I don't know how but you sound dumber than ever.

If you can't figure out what the story is about then hire a hom skool tudor at the "collage" of yours where you're taking a course.

Excuse me, neither that filth nor Foxy ever deserve actual information.

Chance the _divorced_, uber mullah understood the point perfectly well. He was not asking for more information, he was sarcastically implying that there was nothing wrong with smearing the photos with homophobic insults and then distributing them.

There is the saying some have that any publicity is good publicity. She should have figured that some of those attributes she said of him were probably selling points to some people.

The crime was spreading hate and possibly even making threats. I haven't seen the photos, so I cannot say with certainty.

Who's to say or define what constitutes as hate? Just normal conversation or gossip should then be banned? How about comedy? How about the battering Christians take on the internet each day? How about the crucifixion of Christ? It's amazing how one can get away with offending Jesus, Christians, conservatives and the like. But God forbid one insults a Yiddish person or a gay man. Then it is considered hatred, offensive, or out of bounds. You are chock full of hypocrisy and bs.

Sure there is, a politically correct transgressive conservative. Of course the difference is slight, so slight in fact I probably should not have bothered to point it out.

No normal person wants a gay man for any reason.

What about a normal gay man? Wouldn't he normally want at least one other gay man?

Legislators decide what hate speech is, in legal terms.

You can't offend mythological figures like your Jesus.

Yiddish is a language, not a race or ethnicity.
