went in there last sat night for a box of ciggies on my way to g. i had no issues goin in there as :
1. there has still being no clear confirmation of what happened that night and i dont believe yet that this incident 'just happened' over two guys snogging.
2. It was not SPAR or the person with the franchise who has been found guilty of any policy of homophobia. i dont think anyone that goes through an interview process is asked specifically if they are homophobic so they would have no evidence that this one particular secutity had 'homophobic ' tendancies - if that is even proved. if he did use the word faggot, then it is derogatory but i wont label it homophobic until i know the full facts. He may have used it to be insulting, which it was, but it doesnt prove he has a hatred or fear of homosexuals, which homophobia is in its true definintion. Yet i do think if he did use it, he should be fired as the message does need to go out that using words like this (nigger, Knacker, faggot) is a racial insult.
3. all boycotting would do is jeprodise the jobs of the other staff members and futher a frame of mind that 'SPAR' encourages or supports homophobia - which i have no evidence it does.
