  1. I am curious to see how Clare Balding intends to protest Russian homophobic laws when she goes to Sochi as a main BBC commentator.

    So far she has used the offensive and lame justification that her presence will be enough.

    Clearly that is nonsense.

    She refused to commentate at a golf club which refused women members.

    What will she be doing to actively fight Russian homophobia.

    Silence = Death

    1. In the summer, Clare Balding publicy took a stand against sexism when she announced she wouldn’t attend the Open golf tournament because it was being held at Muirfield Golf Club which doesn’t allow women members.

      So I find her completely opposite stance on the Sochi Winter Olympics to be hypocritical. She’s happy to take a public stand against sexism but not homophobia.

  2. Was Clare Balding asked whether she supports a boycott of the Sochi Olympics and its sponsors.

    I hope Tom Daley, a lovely guy and sporting professional, is very happy in life and explores himself and others finding happiness and continued professional success

    He lost his dad and is a fantastic role model for young gay people.

  4. Not really relevant to this particular news but anyway I hope that when the first lesbian or gay couple get a civil marriage in March next year they kiss passionately as all the tv cameras will be there like they were for France’s first gay wedding. The homophobes and biphobes on Stormfront Britain are going ballistic over what the Tory/Lib Dem government has done and this news that gays and bisexuals are now fully equal citizens of Great Britain for the first time in our country’s history REALLY NEEDS TO BE SHOVED DOWN THEIR THROATS!

    These homophobic and biphobic bigots need to be told they are on the wrong side of history and that our country rejects them totally.
