The indignant rants about Edith Cowan University removing the honorary doctorate awarded to Barry House by several editorial letter correspondents to this paper (Times, July 30) won’t change anything.

Regardless of how many apparent good deeds Mr House did among the Busselton community over the years, he will mainly be remembered for his defence of his equally homophobic mate Margaret Court and for his own toxic, ancient views on the subject himself.

These sorts of homophobic views have no place in a decent society today, so Barry and all his supporters really need to take a hard look at themselves and be more kind to everyone in society, no matter what sexual orientation they are born with.

Susan Ford, Busselton.
