The pot calling ...

... the kettle black? There is absolutely nothing inaccurate in this report from Xinhua, indeed it is a model of absolutely facctual reporting. The article is entitled: Homosexuals struggle for recognition in US, and relates to the struggle there for partnership and/or marriage rights for homosexuals. Fair enough. However I do wonder if whoever wrote this article was in fact making an ironic comment about the status of homosexuals in the People's Republic of China itself and the person who authorised the title either let it slip by accidentally, or did not appreciate the irony involved.
