Really, this is not me. I was being ironic by putting it in my post last week.
British readers will have recognized the character as Dafydd, "the only gay in the village", from the BBC comedy Little Britain. It wasn't until an American friend alerted me last night to the potential for confusion that I decided I ought to clarify.
For those who are familiar with Little Britain, have a read of this excerpt from The Independent. As a one-time fan of the series, it is with regret that I have to admit that Mr Hari's full article was, in general, true.
