Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Ian Thorpe is gay

Australia's greatest swimmer, Ian Thorpe has come out as gay.  He's long denied it, and now says he's ashamed he did.  It's a  very hard decision to tell the world you  belong to a despised minority.  I'm sorry he took so long, and I'm glad he has finally been brave enough to tell the world.  Every person who does helps to  break down some more prejudice; helps some kid somewhere feel better about himself; helps show up the ChrisTaliban as loons.

The cartoon is from Peter Broelman, one of Australia's most underrated cartoonists.
