  1. Well done to Nick Clegg. It’s good to see our lawmakers take a stand against bigots.

  2. thank you for thatinsightful comment villian, it’s typical of your sort of ignorance tha your bile-soaked diatribe is semi-literate.

    Feel fortunate that we (who can only be more intelligent and beter educated than you) pay more than our fair sahre in taxes, and that we’re there in the caring servies so that when you sprain your pinkie someone will make it all better for you, or try process your benefit claim.

    Oh,and FOADIAF

    ok its better* not beter and share not sahre lol yes your very intelligent and “better” educated than me i dont think, and as for taxes i pay a lot more than you fagget because i work in a highly paid job for a investment bank unlike most of you animals who are off sick with mental issues because you cant cope with being damaged humans, why are you still fighting for rights ? because you will never be accepted as the normal. freaks and if we dont agree with you ? we are less intelligent or not educated lol youll all die soon or hopefully wiped out

    Oh,and piss off you dirty little abomination turd basher your all never get the right you THINK you should so give it up

    If you indeed “work in a highly paid job for a investment bank” I’m pleased for you, though I do wonder why you’re on this site insulting us poor queers.

    Is it because you’ve been bypassed for promotion by women, or heaven forfend a queer, or is it just that you’re an incredibly nasty human being?

    Whatever, I can only assume you’re so nasty here because you haven’t the guts to say it public. Just as well otherwise you’d be out of your “highly paid” job so fast the door wouldn’t hit your arse on the way out. And you’d be totally unemployable be respectable companies thereafter.

    My organisation and colleagues know that I’m gay, does yours know that you’re a bigot?

    Bravo, Nick! apYrs, Villian is probably so damn ugly nobody would give him a second look, let alone a date. For gay baiters and haters such as this, makes you wonder why and how he singularly found this website to come here and vent his poison. If he were that secure in his supposedly straight orientation, this sort of thing wouldn’t bother him, but obviously it does and that is quite revealing. Maybe he’s a deeply closeted self loathing gay man, ex-gay perhaps (ha-ha)? Does make you wonder doesn’t it? At least we don’t go around raping women, bringing untold children into the world,sometimes several different fathers to one mother, bashing and killing people because they sleep with their own sex. What kind of a sick person would do that let alone condone violence towards us as this moron has clearly demonstrated. He gives decent straight people a very bad name. People like this know they’re losing the cultural war. These are desperate times for them, and as such call for desperate measures. This idiot does it with panache!

    Sorry apYrs – where the f**k did you get ‘semi’ literate from, that is full on clinically retarded.

    And villain, ‘highly paid’ job, is that code for swindling benefits or something then?

  8. Why is villain here? Could it be that he’s ‘a gay’ too?!

    Villain: Lots of homophobes eventually find their inner gay dear – you’ll find the path to fabulousness soon. Until you do, wind yer neck down a bit, there’s a love. Vulgarity is unbecoming of a queen. It just makes you look a bit thick and that’s not the image a highly paid Investment Banker should be projecting.

    (Oh and just FYI – it’s faggot, with an O, not fagget, with an e – a bit like Liza with a Z, if you like, but then you knew that didn’t you petal) xx

    There’s no doubt the illiterate bigot who rambles about his highly paid job is a self hating queer who has had one too many before writing his embarrassing diatribe.

    On the subject of the advert, I think Heinz planned to withdraw it before it was even aired- it was a ploy to get their products maximum publicity at our expense.

  10. An adorable couple — not offensive in the least! What’s the fuss?

  11. Shameless vote chaser!

  12. SMC
    villian’s initial posting has been deleted. It wa top-full of gibberish

  13. oh
    and SMC

    why the vitriol? I’ve defended you even when I disagreed with you. I can only assume that what everyone else has said about you is true.

  14. Sister Mary Clarence 28 Jun 2008, 12:12pm

    apYrs – firstly I’m aware that the original posting has been deleted and second I’m not aware that I expressed bitterness or hatred towards you in anyway, I just think you completely understated what a f**king twat vitriol is.

    As for you defending me ‘even when I disagreed with you’ – that might be how you see it mate, but from my recollection you’ve slagged me off more times than I can count, and in the few instances you have agreed with my point of view you have been very clear about “I can’t believe I’m actually doing this but ….”

    You clearly have very strong opinions about somethings as do I. Its understandable that we will not always agree. Your comments have on more than one occasion totally pissed me off though, but on the basis that I don’t think you’re one of the deranged knee-jerk f**kwits that we see on here all too often I tend to bite my tongue.

    However if I have pissed you off with any comments I’ve made in relation to this story, it was not intentional and I apologise.

    “Sorry apYrs – where the f**k did you get ‘semi’ literate from, that is full on clinically retarded.” – not exactly moderate language – mate!

    I’m not aware that I’ve slagged you off, nor that I’ve been “surprised” when I agree with you. If I have I’m sorry.

    However, you do remind me why I stopped contributing to this forum, I read PN because I want info about the gay community that isn’t available elsewhere, I read this board expecting a degree of edification. What we’re now getting are god-botherers and hate-merchants.

    I will retire with what dignity I can still muster and find other sources of informatin and debate. Life’s too short to get tied up in this sort of thing

  16. Any people offended that Heinz removed an advert featuring a gay couple should contact them for FREE on 0800 528 57 57.

    Stonewall has called on all consumers, gay and straight, to boycott Heinz products.
