Why are you spamming me?

I'm embarrassed for you. Why are you sending out messages of hatred and the most foul abuse of other people I have seen for a long time. You single out Dr Mehmet as a target and I haven't seen any comment by him at all.

I don't know what's gotten into you, but it seems to me that you owe a few people some apologies.

It seems the article you object to was published without adequate scrutiny - or it was changed by the author after publication - and then promptly removed when it was brought to attention.

I support the right of people to express their sexuality and gender preference in appropriate fashion. It's none of my business what other people do in bed, and if it means there is more love in the world, then I'm all for it.

I use the word "preference" not as if it were a conscious choice, but in the same sense that heterosexual women prefer men, homosexual women prefer women, and bisexual women prefer both - as opposed to some other expression, I suppose.

I use the phrase "gender preference" to indicate preference, not to say that there is any choice at all as to what turns people on; there isn't. We are stuck with the hand we get dealt, and we work with that, and if we can make it into a source of love and happiness, then good on us; we are all the better for it.

But I really cannot understand this outpouring of hatred and intolerance on your part. Surely you are acting against your own principles here? If we start labelling other human beings as scum and shit and evil, then we are taking the first step on the way to the gas chambers, and I cannot tolerate that.
