From my childhood I have no happy memories. I don’t mean to say that I never, in all those years, felt any happiness or joy. But suffering is all-consuming: it somehow gets rid of anything that doesn’t fit into the system.
“We must use every means possible to find and track down this individual.”
My question remains: why is it so important Simon? By making this into such a big deal, Mr Grindrod is creating the impression that he is rather touchy on the subject of his own sexuality. A more suspicious person than myself would begin to wonder whether Grindrod does not have something to hide. Does he perhaps suffer from internalized homophobia and is he perhaps gay?
By pursuing the matter “mercilessly”, he also runs the risk of appearing thin-skinned, prissy and vindictive. We now all know that the author of the Blog is an unstable publicity seeker, so few people would take the claims on the Blog seriously.
If Mr Grindrod had more political sense, he would just let sleeping dogs lie. By making such a fuss he is creating more suspicion than he might think.
