    The Gay Games should be scrapped. It’s an appalling, anachronistic self-declaration of second-class citizen status by the LGBT world. Or maybe for gay people to acquire a few medals as they aren’t good enough to compete at world championship and Olympic level.

    Surely we should be working on making sure top gay athletes are not held-back from mainstream competition by political, social, legal and religious barriers? It seems pointless to channel all that energy, financing and whatever else into a set of events that are really just glorified club-standard and exclusive to gays. Another ghetto, whoopee…..

    Monkeychops:

    I thought I heard you say on the Jody Foster thread 3-4 days ago that PinkNews was a stinking rag that was rotting your brain, and that you intended to comment in a more reputable gay newspaper.

    Yet, here you are commenting on a topic on which you have absolutely no idea of what your talking about, because as you say, you’re brain has been rotten out, and rotten brains do not function normally. Rot in: rot out!

    You have never been one of us, you are not now one of us in any sense of the word, and you never will be.

    You are an ex-gay homophobic schizophrenic cyberspace shapeshifter, and you are only here to bulldoze and disrupt us, and to demean and insult everyone for your own attention-seeking megalomaniac addiction to the international spotlight provided to you free of charge by this ‘rag’ of a gay newspaper, to bitter hatred of the LGBT community, and to ruthless and irrational sadism.

    We’ve heard all you have to say time and again, and we are all pretty fed up with you. So why don’t you run along to your momma who, as you say, really loves you, and let her supervise your regular medications.

    We all know how sick you are; how you cannot resist provoking us to anger and then reproaching us as angry, uncivilized gays giving a bad example to the general public.

    The fact is you enjoy hurting gays anonymously in a public forum, just like you hurt me for no reason at all when we shared the ‘Jesus…discrimination thread’. You do remember that, don’t you, Marc Anthony?

    These comments are not meant to offend you in any way, as I’m sure you have the maturity and the education to digest an opinion which is different from your own, as you so often say when provoking us.

    Please spare me your answer, Marc Anthony, which I will certainly not be reading.

    As it happens, Brian Burton, whom you have anonymously humiliated and insulted ruthlessly time and time again, has it spot on when he says:

    “Blaze ahead and damn any oppersition. ‘Gay Games 2010 and thereafter depend on the ternacity and bravery of all the Gay Athletes!”

  5. This is excellent news – well done to the Gay Games organisers.
    They should be proud of the way they are inspiring so many people into sport. Keep up the good work!

    Monkeyfacechops,
    You guttersnipe, you scab on the nose of the edge of the degenerate society you inhabit. You mock the aflickted and we puke because you are allowed to breath the same air as these wonderful Athletes. You Run to your ruin as you should when you get back to your slime-pit GHETTO!

    Monkeyfacechops,
    You are Queen of Scum-Bags (er..not Q.O.Hearts!)
    In the old days, nobody pretended (as you do!) to be better than anybody else. In fact, to feel this way, was regaurded as to be excentric. Nowadays, with this modern mania for political correctness, everyone (except me!) has to pose as a paragon of the virtues, incorruptibility and many other damnable virtues. And what is the result? You all fall like ninepins at the merest nudge. Ha! give me Babylon every time! But, if I have learned anything of value in life, it is to thank Metaphyisics for something I have learned….no real existence. The Spirit alone is the most important.

    I shall be playing my saxophone at the opening ceremony apparently – which I am sure is a treat for all.
