There’s been a bit of coverage in recent days about alleged “double lives”, “sleazy” sexual goings on, “swingers” and “underground worlds”.
All this intermingled with tragedy. It’s a potent mix … or is it ?
The media, certain parts of it anyway, get their freshly ironed and never soiled knickers in a considerable knot about things like this.
But, for one cotton picking moment, can some scribblers and columnists pause and consider this: reality is messy, mistake ridden, silly, profound, difficult, sexual, contradictory … and a hell of a lot more besides. It is seldom black and white, however much many would wish it to be.
A bit more honesty and a little less purience would be good. Some respect also.
