Why do Con-servatives always stress this in your face, shoving it down your throat, and locker room orgy analogies? Latency at its most desperate. America is allegedly a free country. If you are homophobic why do you read about it? Are you that drawn into everything gay? Methinks thou doth protest too much! And a Liberal agenda is daft. I surely can't make you gay, Norman and all of you homophobic men. And you can't make me straight, but it is important to save people in sports be judged by your abilities on the field and not in their homes. Here's a little suggestion:if you don't like articles about gays you can turn the page! See how easy that is!

Brad, I'm living through it in my home of Oxford, where I read Law in New College. Almost 5 years ago I became disabled with RPD, Rapid-Onset Dystonia-Parkinsonism. We are seeing a living hell for the most vulnerable, the Disabled. Murdoch and our Coalition created a hatred of Disabled people in the UK. They are demanding a flawed test to deliberately take a DLA (Disability Living Allowance) WCA (Work Capability Assessment). I am severely Disabled with medical affirmations from specialists here and from when I lived in the USA with my now-former fiancée (he broke it off when I became disabled). The "fraud rate" for the DLA claimants is exceptionally low, 0.5%, but the Government have demanded that the maximum that can be approved will be 13%. That means 87% will lose their benefits and be forced to jobs. They discovered that those with assistance from Legal Aid, so the funding was cut for any assistance in their Appeals system. We are seeing suicides and Hate Crimes against the Disabled soaring. If you can not work you will lose everything and receive £28 per week. This is what you can expect.

I'm not surprised at this. Are opposite sex marriages permitted?

This is a wonderful cause, and I encourage everyone to give what they can, as the streets are rough for LGBTQ youth, and they are our future. Thank you, Steve!

To the protectors of Mithra, and the 'Holy See' selective compilation of the Bible: Your taste for murder continues, as it began with change of Saul the Murderer, or as you call him St Paul. Let's just be clear you has silently promoted mass killings of so many in order to keep fear in your followers, thereby creating compliance with your Cult of Fear.

Guys, I lived in Bermuda, which like most Caribbean nations criminalises homosexuality to the fullest extent of their draconian Laws. You are scoring no points by doing this. In fact your behaviour in their harbour stirs yet more intolerance. Atlantis should have a major rethink about their itinerary in the future.

We are all human, and I understand your long-held positions. Some of you beliefs might clash with mine, but I can engage in civil discourse and still respect you. Now I welcome you to aid in your decisions, as you are not the only person that has felt the scary changes of the GOP. It has become crystal clear of the irony of overprotecting the wealthy while increasing the number of poor and the needs required for it. They claim less government, yet want to include a Constitutional Amendment to add Discrimination of a minority, and with its rhetoric are indicating a dismantling of Democracy in favour of Government interference of the rights to freedom of a woman's choice, and the Government ostracising minorities. Can Santorum please find a discussion outside of sex? I know this decision must have been difficult, but one of a clean conscience. I commend you on your honesty.

That is so cute! It's nice to know when you come home you have love waiting for you without fear. I think it is a great move forward.

Who is this woman? Did she wake up and forgot that she was at Bill O'Reilly's home and accidentally walked a few streets over to the NBC studios? Way to go, Barney! You called her out on her four-for-four negative questions about blaming the Democrats solely for the filibusters that were already planned by the GOP! Tell it as it is!

Hi, Steven, I can understand your first impression of my friend’s work, but as a man that worked for an American LGBTQ and HIV non-profit. Yes, there are many organisations in the States that hold sanctimonious dinner benefits where wealthy white gay call the shots, and it is usually placed as a pat on their own back. And during this global Depression and most of the wealthy white gay men throw their pocket money, with these moneys go not to the cause at hand but for the costs of some other wealthy white gay man’s compensation and the paltry remains for the support staff. The remainder is spent on fundraising that solely spread for house fundraisers at wealthy white gay men’s fabulous estates and their fundraising throughout the year, and the penultimate awards dinner, where these same benefactors just want the souvenir for bragging rights. Some of these organisations do a great job in educating youth about the harm in bullying, and the work they do can assist in education. But, there is also another approach to truly bring awareness of bullying to the children that will have a lasting impact. The Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation are working to boost the freshly out teens and young adults through sports heroes that future bullies look up to and have them stand up with him. Their heroes saying to them that it isn’t cool to bully, and that is an angle you do not see. My friend has no needs of your money for his lavish lifestyle. He lives quite well, thank you. He could’ve easily gone down to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup and would have been a great commentator. And it would be wonderful to see my friend that lifts my spirits. But he is working so much to turn the page on bullying that occurs now and affects some that are playing the great game of rugby after their academic life with those scars of their past, bringing something positive healing to them.
