What a film.
A bit like Goughy earlier, sometimes feel LGBT groups, and indeed other diversity groups, sometimes wield a bit more power and influence than proportion suggests.... At the moment at work we're getting the LGBT stuff forced down our throats a bit (not literally, though I did have sausage for lunch), and when the business is spending money on that and making cuts elsewhere, if anything its causing more resentment than mending bridges. The argument being 'just because someone is openly announcing their sexuality, i'm not going to treat them any differently, they are still either a mate or not'.... However the fact that our generation can see it as such a non issue shows what leaps and bounds the mentality of our generation is ahead of those 20-30 years ago, and its groups like this who we can thank.
I'm sure we can all trot out the 'some of my best friends are gay line', thats because its true, find its now such a non issue beyond elder people.... and of course societies cretins, but usually they are beyond educating bar signing a claim form.
However, ****ing hate screaming queens.... Just because your running around like Paris Hilton with a nutsack does mean people will like you. Ms Hilton is surrounded by people because she's rich and goes like a barn door in a gale....

Not a member, not concerned either. People should just do what they do.
This thread needs some homophobes to spice it up a bit IMO. What's the fun if everyone agrees with eachother?
Can I troll? Maybe that would help?
Where's Ben? Has he been perma'ed or just a long term sin binning?

Anyway good thread. I'm hetero myself but I always found it slightly sad that it was one of the few big issues of the world that never got raised here.

Fair point about Campbell. The debate there ought, of course, to have been about the appalling lengths the media scum are prepared to go to for their "gotcha" moment.
