"Barmy" Aristocrat Gets Crossing Wrong


If there’s one thing that really sticks in the craw of homophobes, it’s Pride crossings, which take the colours of David Quasar’s “Progress Pride Flag” and make them into pedestrian walkways. They are certainly more colourful than the traditional black and white zebra crossing. There was much mirth this week amongst West London LGBTQIA advocates as top gay newswire Pink News reported that unelected aristocrat grandee, Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne, a homophobic woman with a long history of opposition to all LGBTQIA human rights, claimed that a Pride crossing in Chiswick would “trigger migraines and epilepsy”. Doctor Katy Munro, who leads the clinics at the National Migraine Centre, noted that a black and white zebra crossing was more likely to trigger an episode than a rainbow one, whilst esteemed charity Epilepsy Action confirmed ““We are also not aware of any cases where pride flags/stripes have caused a problem for people with photosensitive epilepsy”. For her bizarre rant, twitter users were quick to brand Nicholson as the “barmy Baroness”, whilst one social media user remarked “The sooner we get rid of  stupid aristocratic British parasites like Nicholson, then we might have a chance of building a decent democracy”.
