ACD blogs about some new Arts Council rule in the UK, where those requesting grants must reveal sexual orientation on the form.

Organisations applying for grants are being asked to state how many board members are bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual, lesbian or whose inclinations are “not known”. (RTWT)

I think I’d just check “not known” for everyone. Or maybe just say, “Not your business.” And why aren’t they asking about asexual?

Honestly though, what’s much more important, and clearly should have been asked, is what kind of chocolate they all prefer. Me? I’m all milk chocolate. All the time. (I know some of you think dark is the only chocolate. I’m sorry, but dark chocolate is plainly evil. It’s that simple.)


  1. I actually prefer milk, but I can only eat the “no sugar” types, which taste a little funky (although between chocolate that tastes “a little funky” and no chocolate at all, well…). Anyhow, I mostly eat the dark stuff, anymore 🙁 (again, better than none).

    It’s surprising how many things one can get used to when one hasn’t any choice.

  2. Like adjusting to bad reeds, Tim? 😉

    We all have to deal with them now and then, so I guess you’re right!

  3. No, I’m a beginner, I expect the reed to do its job, dagnabbit, no matter what.

    Strangely, I’m frequently disappointed in that expectation (go figure).

    Actually, I get my reeds from Mike, so I’m usually ok there :).

    Having to eat dark chocolate, on the other hand…

    Still, could be worse – don’t know how anyone can even eat that white chocolate stuff :p Isn’t there another name for that? Frosting, maybe?
