If Magyars want the globo -- and let's not kid ourselves, deep down, Magyars really, really want the globo -- then they have to sign up for the homo part, too.
Them's the breaks, Magyars! Don't pretend otherwise.
- French pronoun meaning she.
- Modern usage has provided it with a "chic" connotation.

Is it just me, or are these campaigns and lines of attack growing a bit stale?
Note added: I've concluded that the best approach to these sorts of "campaigns" is to refrain from "reacting" to them -- either negatively or positively.
Instead, I have found that is better to discern -- see the thing for what it is, and by what it is, I mean understand the motivations and manipulations behind it -- and then focus instead on the Good.
Non-reaction to these sorts of exclusively external campaigns provides the space needed for creativity.
