You can do it in public, but not in private?

Britain continues to confuse me. Four men who had an orgy in a public park received formal apologies because fire fighters stared at them. On the other hand, a man getting it on with bicycle (yes, that’s not a typo) was arrested and placed on a sex offenders list. If you can draw a logic chain between the two, I’ll be impressed. All I can think is that gays are a protected class in England, while bicycles are not.

  1. This is what happens when you let Teletubbies run your country. ” Adain! Adain! Adain! “

  2. While it is true that Bicycle Lovers are an oppressed class, Skateboard Lovers are even more down trodden. Until we get some representation in Parliament, I recommend playing indoors.
    But in Taiwan they even have Heavenly Representation!

  3. I tie this together with the story that when J.K. Rowling did a reading for the general public, and she mentioned that she’d always viewed Dumbledore as gay, the entire crowd broke out into thunderous applause.

    For the LIFE of me, I cannot explain this reaction. not Ms. Rowling’s reaction, but the audience reaction. Can anyone explain this? I keep thinking about it, and I can’t explain it.

    As a gay man, I’m slightly touched by her view on Dumbledore, but I see no reason to even nod in approval, much less break out into thunderous applause. It makes absolutely no sense to me that a general audience would break out into applause. Can ANYONE here explain it?

    In that way, this bizarre British coddling of these men having public sex together, while a man doing whatever he is doing with his bicycle, fits into the picture. It’s inexplicable as well.
