Views on homosexuality
Power is a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, having campaigned against it in her Times Online column. She defended her comments by pointing out that lots of male columnists, such as John Waters, Ian O'Doherty and Kevin Myers, have expressed similar views, and sure why shouldn't she. She is highly critical of LGBT adoption (" I wouldn't like a child to be brought up by two men dressed all day in women's clothes, to be frank"), gay pride ("foolish and anachronistic"), and the Irish gay community, which she describes as "misogynistic".
She is against the Irish language being a compulsory subject in schools.
