"Most people don’t know... when they do find out, will they just simply want to be left alone so they can enjoy their yummy 'LGBT sandwich,' or will they step up to the plate?"

Most people have no idea what’s going down in the house of rainbow. That now, for many of us, the rainbow flag represents an insidious force, something dark and harrowing. It represents coercion and conversion. The male-dominated ‘LGBTQ’ has become a corrupt dictatorship with a merciless backhand—Quite willing to dole out blows to those who don’t fall in line.

Most people don’t know about the raging homophobia coming from within the ‘LGBTQ’—Homophobia that categorically, and almost exclusively, targets lesbians. The question is, when they do find out, will they just simply want to be left alone so they can enjoy their yummy propaganda sandwich, or will they step up to the plate?

Most people don’t know. So, when someone like broadcaster/journalist, Sonia Poulton, manages to hop the barbed wire gates of the mainstream media, and tell people what’s really going on, lesbians are cheering—Because we can see another pinhole of hope, in what’s become a twisted tapestry.

On May 6th, This Morning posted a controversial video. In the episode titled “‘Gay Sandwich’ Row,” Poulton “broke the parapet” and tried to raise awareness in the mainstream about the rampant homophobia within the ‘LGBTQ,’ and how it explicitly targets lesbians.

On Tuesday, May 13th, Poulton posted an update stating, “Update on #cottonceiling it reached USA, Australian, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Chile, France, Spain and more. It was the second most watched video last week for This Morning (after royal birth) with 100k views and it raced to the top of Google search in one day. Onwards!

The video of the segment, on This Morning, “outpaced every other video that week including the celebrity ones,” and “it was second to the royal baby.”

Wednesday morning, I reached out to Poulton, and she explained that the video, on This Morning, “outpaced every other video that week including the celebrity ones,” and “it was second to the royal baby.”

She said, “I was on the show to talk about Marks & Spencer producing sandwiches in support of Pride, but the more the conversation progressed, the more I realized that we were talking about a Pride that no longer exists for lesbians. I couldn’t continue to talk about bread, when I have become aware of the struggles that lesbians are facing within the LGBT movement. So I spoke out. The response has been phenomenal. Many women, not just lesbians, grateful that I said this on TV.

Host Eamonn Holmes, opens up the segment, explaining, “This is M & S’ LGBT sandwich, it’s causing a bit of a row.

Co-host Rochelle Humes, chimes in, explaining, “They have pledged to donate 10 thousand pounds to LGBT causes.” She then introduces their guests, Melissa Thompson, a “former food consultant,” who “thinks it’s a great idea,” and Sonia Poulton, “who says the campaign is repugnant.”

Poulton responds, stating her initial thought was, “what crass, opportunistic, virtue-signaling nonsense, that will only benefit the shareholders of Marks and Spenser.” She goes on to say she thought it was great that they were donating money to LGBT homeless, but upon looking into it further, she saw how little would actually go to ‘LGBT,’ and that they’d be making “an immense capital on the LGBT cause.”

Melissa Thompson, says the sandwich is “tasty,” and stands by the awareness it’s raising.

So your argument would be that you feel it’s inclusive…

Humes then says to Thompson, “so your argument would be that you feel it’s inclusive…

“Inclusive” and ‘exclusionary’—Those words have come to symbolize all that’s gone so horribly wrong… The hijacking of the L. It’s how we ended up with only one… ONE… lesbian writer at one of the few “lesbian” mainstream publications we have remaining. It’s how we ended up with non-lesbians doling out dangerously homophobic advice to young lesbians. It’s how we ended up with a system of grooming.

Most people have no idea… How can they? The lesbians community has been methodically bulldozed and threatened into silence. Most people aren’t even aware that lesbians have been excluded, from our own publications, organizations and marches, in the name of “inclusion.” How can they be? Everything lesbians built has been destroyed from the inside.

So, when Humes says “your argument would be that you feel it’s inclusive,” it’s almost eerie to see how widely the buzzword has spread. Thompson responds, “absolutely.”

Thompson goes on to say, “If people support Gay rights, they need to be loud about it.”

Thompson goes on to say, “If people support Gay rights, they need to be loud about it.” So she should’ve been very impressed with what happens next… Because not only is Sonia Poulton about to “support Gay rights,” she’s about to be “loud about it”—Thompson finishes her thought with, “We’re not past the age of homophobia. Now more than ever people need to stand up,” to which Poulton replies, “Well I couldn’t agree more, with what you’ve just said, Melissa. We are not past the age of homophobia. And in fact the LGBT movement, at this moment in time, is homophobic itself.”

Eamonn Holmes asks, “What do you mean?” But I don’t think Poulton’s answer is what he expected.

Poulton responds, “I’ll explain more. First of all, I’d like everyone to google what ‘cotton ceiling’ means and then I would like to talk about the campaign of ‘Get the L Out.'” She looks to Melissa Thompson and says, “Are you familiar with that?” Thompson nods her head knowingly, and gives Poulton the floor.

I’m at home, watching and wondering, if (like so many women right now), Thompson’s response, the quiet that seems to fall upon her, comes from fear… Fear of losing her job if she says anything that’s deemed ‘wrongthink’… Fear of the threats and harassment that have Stockholmed so many into silence.

On “Get the L Out,” Poulton explains, “…that is where lesbians are actually demonstrating, because they are feeling very much bullied and victimized by LGBT lobby groups, such as Stonewall. Pride, for one example, had lesbians removed from the Swansea Parade simply for saying that they are only attracted to same sex.”

Eamonn Holmes stops her there to say, “Well you see, here’s where it all gets a bit complicated. I mean, I’m a simple person really. I was just enjoying my sandwich…

Eamonn Holmes stops her there to say, “Well you see, here’s where it all gets a bit complicated. I mean, I’m a simple person really. I was just enjoying my sandwich…” And I’m thinking how perfectly his response reflects the ‘not my problem,’ reaction we so often see when people do find out.

Is it good?” Rochelle Humes, replies, aiding in the diversion.

Holmes replies “Very very nice. Very very nice.”

Holmes offers Humes the sandwich. She laughs. “The bit you’ve already eaten!?

But what I’m saying is, surely it is really simple, Sonia, without you reading all of that into it…

Holmes, has a good laugh as well before returning his attention to Poulton. He finishes his thought—”But what I’m saying is, surely it is really simple, Sonia, without you reading all of that into it…” and suggests the sandwich is to “promote” that idea that we’re all a “big family, nothing to be afraid of.

Sonia Poulton responds, “But that’s not what’s going on. That is literally not what’s going on… I’m making a film, in which I’ve talked to many of the leading players in the LGBT movement, including Simon Fanshawe, who was an original trustee of Stonewall, and Simon has come out, as have a number of people, including Dame Kelly Holmes and Sharron Davies, saying that the LGBT at this moment in time is homophobic towards lesbians.

Melissa Thompson—who (during the segment) is both identified as, and identifies herself as, a “gay woman,” responds—”but i think that this is moving away from the point, that this is a sandwich.”

Sonia Poulton replies, “This is about Pride, and Pride is a problem.”

Thompson says, “I don’t think it is a problem. It’s about visibility.”

So is it about “a sandwich,” or “visibility“? And if “it’s about visibility” then why not talk about how lesbians have been feeling invisible, silenced, and excluded in the name of “inclusion” for years? And what happened to Thompson’s point being, “if people support Gay rights, they need to be loud about it.”

The hosts go on to read some comments from online, after which Thompson says companies can’t win. She’s concerned that people “criticize” big companies either way, and that it will “get to the point where the only people who are shouting out about things are people who are prejudice and are against gay rights.”

Poulton responds, “That’s the problem right there, Melissa, because that’s exactly what’s happening. You know as well as I do, that’s exactly what’s happening, as soon as people are raising their head above the parapet, and saying, ‘actually lesbians are only attracted to same sex.’ Right? Rather than same gender…” Poulton goes on to say, “men… are now calling themselves lesbians and expecting to sleep with lesbians. That’s rape culture! And that is being supported by Stonewall and Pride. Pride actually sent out a message saying if any lesbians show up demonstrating against this, they will be removed. And that happened on Saturday. That’s what we should be screaming about… The fact that lesbians are being trodden on. Where is the L?

Thompson, at this point, doesn’t deny what Poulton is saying, rather asks, “But Sonia, how do they communicate that in a sandwich?

Sonia Poulton, stuck her head above the parapet, and spoke as an ally to the lesbian community. She took a discussion, around a controversial sandwich, and used the time to raise awareness, to talk about an important issue—Homophobia within the ‘LGBTQ.’ We need more of that!

“I’m making a film, in which I’ve talked to many of the leading players in the LGBT movement, including Simon Fanshawe, who was an original trustee of Stonewall, and Simon has come out, as have a number of people, including Dame Kelly Holmes and Sharron Davies, saying that the LGBT at this moment in time is homophobic towards lesbians.

Most people have no idea what’s going down in the house of rainbow. And now that the ‘LGBTQ’ is anti lesbian, and especially now that it’s become pro child abuse—peddling gay conversion ‘therapy’ tied up in a ‘progressive’ rainbow, enshrining the “affirmative model” into law—people need to hear what lesbians have to say. On topics like childhood, adolescence, ‘non-conformity,’ and the difference between ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ (stereotypes allocated based on sex)… How baby dykes rail against compulsory ‘femininity’ (‘gender’), way before we even understand what it is we’re railing against.

People need to know about the rampant homophobia coming from within the ‘LGBTQ’—Because it’s causing permanent scars.

Sticking your head above the parapet, to speak up as a lesbian, or as an ally to lesbians, isn’t easy. On the contrary, it can be extremely intimidating, and it can come with real consequences. If we’re asking people to be loud where Gay rights are concerned, we can’t continue to exclude lesbians from that conversation.

At this point, there’s no coming back from this massacre. That’s why there’s a movement to Drop the L. We want out of this diabolical cult, this Stockholm house of grooming horrors.

Hopefully the panel of sandwich enthusiasts on This Morning can work on saying the word lesbian. LESSSSBIAN. And, fingers crossed, what Poulton has said will sink in. Judging from the popularity of the video, second only to the royal baby this week, it seems Poulton certainly accomplished what she set out to do—Hop the barbed wire gate of the mainstream, with an unauthorized message. Raising awareness is never as simple as slapping a rainbow on the package of a “tasty” sandwich.
