  1. They are not homophobic because they homosexual friends? Lol …… I’m pretty sure their ” homosexual friends ” will be delighted at their abhorrent behaviour towards their gay neighbours!

    “they have friends that are homosexual”. See, people really do say dumb ass stuff like that!

  3. Noisey neighbours are a TOTAL pain – irrespective of their sexuality. So these people are CLEARLY homophobic, picking on that aspect of their character.

  4. At what time did this incident take place?

    Their language was homophobic but if the gay guy was partying late at night with no thought of the noise he was making then I have little sympathy for him.

    Antisocial behaviour is unacceptable.

      Of course anti-social behaviour is not acceptable, but that’s not the point. I’ve had noisy neighbours befit the past, but I didn’t need to refer to their sexual orientation, or perceived sexual orientation, to complain to them about it.

    How many times did we hear MPs against equal marriage cite the “I have gay friendsso I can’t be homophobic” mantra? Tory MPs Burrowes and Loughton were just two examples among countless others. Even if they have gay friends, it doesn’t excuse using the homophobic slurs even in a fit of anger or frustration. Totally unacceptable too.

    Year ago, I had noisy upstairs neighbours and was quite friendly with them, yet even when they made noise at an ungodly hour, I never brought their sexuality into the equation when I had a word with them about it, not that I was confrontational about the issue.

  6. Two seperate points.
    One: if you don’t fancy living in a state of perpetual war with your neighbours don’t pi$$ them off by regularly cranking up the noise into the small hours.
    Two: if you want to complain about said neighbours don’t start chucking around bigoted slurs like a drunk Nick Griffin at the BNP Xmas party to get their attention.

    It’s not rocket science.

  7. Noisy neighbours are a pain in the ass whatever their sexuality!

  8. Using homophobic language is by definition homophobic.
