Have just seen the following link highlighted by someone on Facebook. The headline is confusing me, it says "Exclusive: Gordon Brown will answer gay questions". You see the article goes on to say
"Do you have a question for the next Prime Minister? Gordon Brown will take office on 27th June, and he has agreed to answer questions submitted by our readers."So why am I confused? Well basically I don't understand the use of the word "gay" in the title. OK, so Pink News is a newspaper with a specifc target audience of the gay community. However, does that mean when one of the readers asks "why have you screwed my pension?" the question is a "gay question"?
Of course, it might turn out that all the questions submitted end up being about gay issues, in which case they might be "gay questions" although I'd personally just call them questions all the same. If it said "Gordon Brown will answer gays' questions" then that would work. Maybe it was just a subbing problem?
There is another explanation for the headline of course. but I'm not sure Pink News is into such subtle tabloid innuedos.
