What utter tripe! She admits, however, to being pornophobic....whether gay or heterosexual.
If a putative councillor feels it's acceptable to star in hard corn porn films....gay or straight, then he/she should have the courage to give voters the chance to decide whether they wish to be represented by them.

As a parent I cannot abide any kind of pornography, which pervades our everyday life in a way I find repellent and frightening.
