I think Ann could win. I genuinely don’t believe she’s against homosexuality - but has views on gay marriage and doesn’t buy into this whole ‘self confessional, me, me, me’ stuff that a lot of reality stars love.
Ann is happy to discuss issues but is old fashioned in how she expresses herself - in her mind she’s at work and not at home, and whilst in public conducts herself a certain way... and wishes other people wouldn’t overshare.
So much of her life has been in service to people, that who she is as a person has had to be completely removed from her work. She has lived her life in a predominantly male world (at least back then) and men don’t tend to whine or moan too much about their personal lives whilst at work (at least back then) and I think Ann simply believes that is more preferable.
Shane infuriated me last night. Shane is holding Ann to account for her voting record from decades ago, in a political world he has no knowledge of - he isn’t even British so has no grasp of what British society was back when Ann was in politics. You can’t judge a person on actions or beliefs they had decades ago.
Ann is best friends with Amanda who herself is in a same sex marriage. Ann shows absolutely no signs of homophobia towards her. Shane complains that Ann refusing to call him Courtney when he’s in drag is pathetic - at the very start he told everyone that it didn’t matter what name they used, yet all of a sudden is offensive in his community?
