That just tells most of us what we already know about tory attitude and thinking towards us. Try telling that to torypride the yes men laccys of the rightwing willing to chuck the rest of us under a bus for a bone.
Yeah, that’s what the survey says doesn’t it?
Says to me that they’re watching TV instead of having a real life. Besides, it’s what I’ve known a long time; if I don’t like what I see, don’t watch!
Troy right wing straight men are scared of us… wonder why?
I question your use of the word ‘straight’!
And gay people still vote tory. I stopped when Milk Snatcher brought in Clause 28
Labour must be milk snatcher too cos they stopped milk for secondary school kids at the end of the 1960s.
Sec 28 is in the dust bin. Deal with it.
Labour’s Amendment 60 (I think it’s 60, Jock will know which one it was…) sanctioned religious schools to not teach about homosexuality as normal and part of human existence.
Morning Luke. It was Amendment 70.
It gives faith schools the right to teach according to their religion.
So negatively as we all know and no doubt as usual they will deny they have anything to do with homophobic bullying and it’s consequences.
Never kissed a Tory (so the feeling is mutual)
The tories are full of poofs
well aint that a trip, the hetersexual biggoted lunatics, are as insane as ever, the gay community do not want to see your hetersexual ass naked and in their faces either, but if they dont like the tv show its in they simply turn the channel to something else they like better, or they fantasize and put someone esle in the place of the man or woman , they dont care to see like i do a times, these hetero need to get some sensse they dont have and use, grabbing at knats andswallowing cammels of their own get it , they need to get a life and partiipate in the real one that is hetero in front of them , its no way; that these hetesesuals can bee attending their own families and being consumed with the gay community the way they are , its all they think about and talk about, its pathetic an evil , they are stalkers, to the gay community, nosy, and jeoulous, now guess how many hetersexual men would have wanted to be in that picture with that other man , a lot i gu;arantee you.
I love reading your comments Carrie, but, what does ‘grabbing at knats and swallowing camels’ mean?
It’s a misquote of Jesus attacking the Pharisees, who were obsessed with minor taboos in the Torah (‘gnats’), while ignoring ‘camels’ (lack of love, etc).
Yes, ALL Tories are extremely homophobic and I even want my self executed. We’re all very evil and same sex kissing makes physically sick.
Blah Blah Blah. Happy now?
Not really. You’re still an idiot for being a Tory. An anachronistic irrelevance in the modern world.
How wonderful to have the vision of the self-anointed.
Working class Tory and proud of it mate. Also happen to be gay and proud of who I am.
Working class and proud tory too Luke. It’s a shame we should be classed as “Idiots” for believing in a certain political party. If only there was some way we could make people see the bigger picture, and not just whats on their gay card.
You two gentlemen have a point…However there are many other reasons why people don’t vote Conservative…Good reasons…
Lets not forget that the Tories now have more Gay and Lesbian MPs than any other party and with that comes change. (Hopefully)
so yes we kiss
yes we love
yes we fkuc
I feel sorry for conservative gay guys. They must be screwed up to vote for a political party that has always thought of them as second class citizens, and put so many laws in place that have made our life hell over the years, and have an openly homophobic chairwoman (as well as a cabinet that have a history of anti gay voting). Being gay and tory is almost as confusing as being gay and catholic. I just don’t get it. Must be some kind of sadomasochistic power play.
Yep, being gay and voting Tory really is a confusing thing. I must be sectioned under the mental health act!
I don’t think people are sectioned for being confused and screwed up.
No they attend Church usually!! ;)
Actually being gay and voting tory is no more or less screwed up than being gay and voting labour.
Let’s face it, Labour brought in legislation permitting religious schools to not teach about homosexuality, echoing the section 28 they claimed to abhor.
Labour only reduced the age of consent to 16 for homosexuals in 2001 after a string of cases challenging the illegality of the unequal AoC.
England only removed “section 28″ after being forced to by the ECHR. Labour did nothing willingly, and it took them 4-5 years to actually do anything positive for the LGBT agenda. Knowing how easy it is to repeal a law (Parliament Act 1911 anyone?), they could have done more before the end of ’97.
The Tories may not be traditionally LGBT friendly, but lets be realistic and realise that Labour are just as bad. Politically there is very little difference between the three main parties in the UK.
But this story is about tories. Who said I supported labour? But actually let’s be realistic. Labour did more for gay rights whilst in office than any other government ever has. So no, it wouldn’t be more screwed up voting labour and being gay, it would be less screwed up. And lets see if the tories are ‘forced’ by the ECHR to bring in more gay rights legislation. You should also take take a look at the record of gay rights legislation voting between the two parties. Was it the ECHR that ‘forced’ the tories into consistently voting against gay rights legislation. And in regard to the faith schools, which are stupid. Let’s see if the tories get rid of them, like labour got rid of section 28. I think you’ll find they will not.
no less screwed up to vote labour? wow. As Uh Oh says, Labour brought in more gay rights than the tories ever did. Also, and more tellingly , the tories are currently woking to reduce the amount of equality rights, which they see as irrelevent today. The main protector of the LGBT community legally are these equality laws, so by abolishing these the tories leave us all exposed wthin the work place, in the health system, etc.
Now, correct me if i’m wrong, but theres a difference between a party that constructs legislation to protect a community (even if it is reluctantly) and a party that actively demolishes such legislation.
Kat & Uh Oh, please re-read my post. Labour DID enact legislation around equality for the LGBT community – a pure and simple fact.
What Labour did NOT do was do it voluntarily. The Labour government were forced not once, but several times to introduce the legislation I referred to after being instructed by higher courts that their existing legislation was unlawful and incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights, as enshrined in English/Welsh law by the Human Rights Act 1998.
So making Labour out to be some saviour of the LGBT is erroneous. Being forced to deliver equality by the law is simply not the same as actively supporting equality.
I rather be Irish Gay and Cathloic (lapsed) than vote for a party that hates me!
They must be screwed up to vote for a political party…
I guess if you think democracy and Freedoms are screwed up.
Now I know why I am not a Tory.
Keep up the pressure and keep rubbing their noses in it
Typical bloody tory homophobia. They say they’ve changed, but they really haven’t. Not one of them has come out in support of marriage equality, among other things. Being gay and tory, a party that hasn’t done a thing for equality equals oxymoron, not to be trusted. Big frigging deal, so they have 23 out members but not even one of them has tthe guts or the integrity to declare support for full marriage equality or leading the charge. It hasn’t changed, believe me. If it weren’t for the Liberal Democrats forming the coalition, the marrriage equality consultation wouldn’t even be on the table. It, like Labour does NOTHING voluntarily until it’s forced to by EU directives or embarrassed into doing something. Pathetic!
No, we definitely haven’t changed. We secretly want ALL gays executed and made to suffer for ever.
On a more constructive level, a lot of Conservative support comes from the over 60s – maybe this provides an explanation to the reason to the survey’s results. Almost all young people I know (political and apolitical) do not view same sex kissing on t.v distastefully.
I have to agree with that Luke. I imagine this is based on older Tory supporters as I would think younger ones are more accepting.
Though I could be wrong.
I wonder if a sex break-down would show straight men of all voting tendencies being more favourable to lesbian kissing? Just a thought.
really what is the point of these surveys..honestly..they are pointless. A lot of ppl I know who vote labour certainly wouldnt approve of pre-watershed gay kisses.. and i am more of a coalition supporter (dont shoot me) and I dont mind them before the watershed..It going to vary widely between place and age surely…
I know lots of Labour supporters who can’t stand gay people never mind approving same sex kissing. I agree with you that these survey’s are completely pointless.
Excellent comment guest.
I do wonder why this party has been singled out. Clearly to taint but it’s hardly progress and I’m sure many rough Labour voters on council estates would probably feel the same.
Don’t mean to stereotype but had to, to make the point.
Yes but how many Tory voters were turned on by gay kisses? I know I am.
Ah, now thats a very good question. Now would they be honest about it? LOL
In other news the sky is blue
Wouldn’t know due the fact all I get to see it bloody clouds… in summer!!!
I’ve forgotten what they sky looks like.
i can see all the blue haired old ladies getting wound up cos someone is having sex and they havent since 1954.
The Liberal Democrat results are VERY BIZARRE! Why 60% OK with gay men kissing but only 40% OK with gay women kissing?
The generally results are a bit worrying because it shows that whilst the 40-59s are more open-minded than the 60+ and the 25-38 are more open-minded than the 40-59s, the 18-25 are less open minded than the 25-38.
This isn’t the only poll I have seen this in and it’s depressing. It takes away hope for the future.
Next up in the news, the pope is catholic
Reserch has shown that the brain of a heterosexual males has the same structure as that of a lesbians and that gays have the same brain structure and thought processes as that of heterosexual females. It has also been discovered (and please don’t ask me for source because I can’t remember them at the moment) that hetero males like watching lesbian porn and that a good percentage of hetero females enjoy gay porn.
So you pays your money and you takes your choice. This I would imagine is why there is some resistance to gay kisses on tv. Hetero females are not going to stand up and say that they like watching gay kisses etc becasue that would put them into a vulnerable position socially – it’s one of their little secrets ;-)
I would also put forward the thought that that is why gays have so many female friends.
so youre suggesting that if we showed Maggie thatcher et al a bit of gay porn theyd love it but are too afraid to say?!
Sorry Wildseas but it is NO secret that straight women enjoy watching guys getting it on. Believe me I know plenty.
I’m sill waiting for one of those 23 openly gay Tories to declare support for marriage equality. Why the silence? Why is Cameron silent? Why is his party silent for that matter? Why hasn’t it endorsed it?
Must admit, I am wondering what is happening.
We need a new Mary Whitehouse.
We need Section 28 back in force.
We need to clamp down on the ‘special laws’ for homosexuals.
No homosexual kissing on tv, no public affection for either hetrosexual or homosexuals. No gay Pride marches, as these are not equal, as straight people do not have any.
Homosexuals have too many rights, special laws.
I fully support all things against homosexuals as they think they are untouchable and should have special treatment, well tough not in my business you dont, law or no law.
And we need a better edcuation system it seem…. you managed to get through the nets and carry on a life under such anger, ignorance and hate.
And bravo for posting your hate on a gay site, how manly and brave of you.
I bet he’s a riot at parties though.
Or at least the fool you let get drunk to laugh at.
Or so far in the closet he is finding Christmass presents?
I imagine Mr Thomas is of an age where the mind forgets when he had an education.
hey if you want to organise a straight pride feel free. And its not special treatment its to attempt to overcome 2000 years of prejudice from muppets like you and achieve EQUALITY.
I’m still a bit baffled about these ‘special laws’ we supposedly have. Pride parades aren’t a ‘special law’ any more than the Notting hill carnival is. Its a celebration to promote diversity. I’m pretty sure stright people can organise carnivals too.
Which leaves equality laws and laws against discrimination in the workplace. Are these the ones Anthony calls ‘special’, cause I thought they applied to everyone, as he will find out soon enough if he flouts them as he seems hellbent on doing.
All Pink News forums have been rendered useless due to the bigot Keith and idiots like Anthony Thomas
This site no longer caters for LGBT if it allows this level of abuse.
Therefore from now on all I am going to say is FVCK OFF……. to every one of Keiths comments.
Keith…. You can FVCK OFF…….
Anthony, You can FVCK OFF and die.
“well tough not in my business you dont, law or no law.”
See you in Jail then. Idiot………….
You wont see me in jail, as I dont give reasons for refusal, I just refuse, so you cant use it against me if I havent said anything.
Don’t bet on it!
Typical religious fruitloops wants us to turn the clock back to support their own bigotted agenda.
Poor, sad closet case Anthony Thomas trolling a gay site. Get back into your cave, neanderthal.
“We need a new Mary Whitehouse.”
“No homosexual kissing on tv, no public affection for either hetrosexual or homosexuals.”
I’m surprised he can look down in the shower for fear of seeing his own genitals. Someone should inform him the Spanish Inquisition disbanded in 1834.
Well duh. It’s still a straight male dominated world. Go figure.
And long may it be
I’m surprised Anthony you want a male dominated world when you yourself come across as such a bitch…..
What a ridiculous article, clearly designed to smear left wing rubbish, it’s like the BBC but pink. When are gays going to ‘Come out’ of the 1980s and stop using section 28 as a smear against the tories. David Cameron could stand outside of number 10 noshing off Boris Johnson and you’d still be screaming section 28. Im pretty proud of the modernisation the tories have made since the 80′s. Im a tory voter, and gay, and proud for what i believe it. It’s digesting that some people think that because I’m gay i shouldn’t vote tory. This article in no way represents me or many other gay tories i know.
I can understand your point of view and I respect also, however I could never agree with it. Conservative contempt for certain spheres of humanity is abhorrent, their policy over the past thirty years has continued to divided our society, damage which will take many years – beyond our own lifetimes to heal. They may have modernised – but at what cost? They rebuke a society of discontent that is to a certain extent is of their own making. They promote a political polity that takes the means from those most in need, and in doing so taking peoples lives…
Really? All comments I agree with. However, it’s worth noting that the rich-poor divide has grown to the largest extent between 1997 and present day. The Thatcher/Major years may have started the abhorrent and contemptible society of today, but the Blair/Brown years certainly propagated it if not encouraged it.
I am a part way through my way of standing to be elected for a party.
I have been doing my research and asking questions about current matters, and laws.
I have written to Lynne Featherstone,
I asked her Why are people not allowed to serve who they wish? That is their right and their choice, and most of all its their property and business.
Homosexuals and lesbians have been given free reigh to sue who they want, they force their lifestyles into peoples faces, with pride and their DEMANDS.
There should be adjustments so that people can refuse to serve who they
want. Regardless of sexuality, race etc. It should be individuals choice.
Lynne Featherstone is abusing her position to promote this one sided matter which is discrimination to religious
people and also infringes on people who do have a choice to serve who
So, if I choose to put up a sign saying “No blacks, No irish, no Morgan Johnsons” in a shop window, you’d be OK with that? Who knows, it might catch on.
“they force their lifestyles into peoples faces, with pride and their DEMANDS.”
Paranoid much? God forbid we ask for equality and a minimum expectation that people do not refuse us in a shop simply because we are gay! The audacity of some gay people to expect equality, eh?
“There should be adjustments so that people can refuse to serve who they want.”
So you have no problem if my company just decided to stop serving you simple because I think you’re a fool? You’;re okay with that?
What party are you running for anyway, the UKIP or BNP?
You have to question why their parents failed them so much as to deny people like Morgan a decent education.
h dear, what a pity, never mind!!
Poor Morgan, seems he’s stuck on bigotry. Totally irrelevent comment to.
It ain’t pretty and shows exactly why religion needs to die a death to let humanity progress.
The LGBTQI community are not up for debate, only the stories here PinkNews publish are.
This country is meant to have freedom of speech and freedom of thought.
I was delighted to hear the word ‘insult’ may removed from the Public
Order Act. and I will strive to see that is it done so.
I have asked for The Home Office and her peers to look at this, why Lynne believes she should devote all her time and effort to this one matter, of homosexual rights when she is the alleged Equality Minister, ALL peoples views and Equality should be taken into account and she should not support the one sided of homosexuals.
Home office are yet to reply, and Lynne herself will not answer calls or emails, so the Home Office are looking into the evidence I have sent them, and they will report back to me.
She is not being Equal and she is totlaly clueless.
“ALL peoples views and Equality should be taken into account and she should not support the one sided of homosexuals. ”
Don’t forget the lizard people and the new world order, ask her about that too. They’re up to something with the homo agenda, I’m sure of it.
“Home office are yet to reply, and Lynne herself will not answer calls or emails”
Where you shouting at traffic at the timer? Maybe if you took the tin foil hat off she might take you seriously?
Yawn – yet another irrelevent comment from Morgan.
It’s never too late to get an education.
This is news…? I suspect plenty of older one don’t like it but then they’ve only about themselves not others.
