WHY DOES MEL B THINK BEING A LESBIAN IS A BAD THING?

We're a little puzzled about Mel B's reaction to photos of her getting close and cuddly with Christine Crokos:

"Oh yeah, I heard about that," Brown laughed. "Do you know how many stories I've had? If I was to even take one bit of them and slightly get boiled up and believe it, I would be a wreck. I'd be some lesbian, horrible, bitchy, aggressive psychopath, party animal, sex and drugs maniac. I don't really know. I could be, but I'm not!" she told Jawn Murray. What we find a little unsettling is her apparent consideration that lesbianism is a type of character flaw like being a psychopath or bitchy. Curious.

Two things, anonymous. First, i-d-i-o-t; secondly, you've failed to understand the post - the point is that Mel B brackets being gay with being a psychopath or bitchy. She says that she'd be a "wreck" and the first characteristic of that wreckage would be being gay. But I'm sure she was being thoughtless rather than actively hateful.

If she was to even take one bit of them and slightly get boiled up and believe it then she would be a wreck due to the fact that she would be all the this listed which are the things ppl have said about her over the yrs... thanks for the typo correction but you are the one who fails to understand what she was getting at... ppl like you twist ppls wrds to get a meaning u want.

No, once again, you've completely missed the point. Let's try this again: the problem is that the implication is that being described as lesbian is on a par with being described as aggressive or bitchy. It's interesting that - presumably subconsciously - she trotted out a list which made such a bracketing. It's subtle, but caused my eyebrow to raise. I'm sure you'll be aware of the similar reactions to a letter about Gene the gangster which was featured on Right To Reply some years back.
