  1. So at first he’s homophobic, then he thinks everyone is stupid enough to believe his excuse. Idiot.

  2. You know, before seeing the actual quote of his use of ‘gay’, I thought maybe he was a man in his 60s saying ‘Oh, so-and-so will be ok with -whatever-, he’s such a gay fellow’ or something that could POTENTIALLY pass for ‘happy’ as the intended meaning. But who the hell does he think he’s kidding?

    From his surname, I would deduce he’s of Polish descent which means…catholic.

    1. What a stupid deducement! I’m of Polish descent and neither I or my family have anything to do with the catholic sect. Your attempt to attribute an ethnicity/religion to an individual you know nothing about in order to fit your narrative smacks of racism..

  4. I know a lot of people who call people and things gay (inappropriately at times), they are not automatically homophobic as being stipulated. ”/ His email remark was inappropriate for his position, although I am pretty sure he did it by accident not realising the message would be broadcasted beyond his circle and so he did need to apologise, but this doesn’t necessarily mean he’s homophobic.

    1. I would never use the word gay in a negative manner as I’m not homophobic. Simples.

  5. “Me thinks the lady doth protest too loudly …”

  6. I think Mr Staniszewski looks fairly gay too.

  7. Wow, how immature of him.

    He has to be very obsessed with homosexuality to have done that. That kind of obsession suggests one thing!

    I really hope someone tells him that now everyone will probably think he’s a closet homosexual! That will really eat away at him!

  8. gaydar…..

  9. Bryan is left-handed.

    Whilst I’m sure the intention here was schoolboy-ish, I look forward to a point where sexual orientation is no more noteworthy than any other inate attribute.
