The Huffington Post in the UK has reported that David Davies, the Conservative MP for Monmouth, has responded to accusations of homophobia following an interview he gave to BBC Radio Wales yesterday. On the radio, he said that:
"I think most parents would prefer their children not to be gay, knowing most parents want grandchildren if nothing else."
This was the comment that engendered the accusations. Personally, my first thought was to send him a turkey baster, and a copy of this article from the New York Times. However, in his defence, Mr. Davies pointed out that during his amateur boxing career he once fought a gay boxer. Apparently he posted a vid of the fight as proof. That makes total sense: how to prove one is not a homophobe - show everyone a film of oneself punching a homosexual in the face. Nice one, Dave!
