I do find it refreshing that the younger generation is far more open and accepting of all sexualities (including asexual) but at the same time amusing that many find it ok to use "gay" as a "light" insult - as in "that shirt looks a bit gay".

Thirty years ago one of the guys in our football team was gay, and in many ways shaped my views in that he was not one of these camp effeminate types. In those days it was normal for everyone to use communal showers after football, he got the same amount of good natured ribbing as everyone else - his standard answer was "you're too ugly for me".

So, non-binary sexuality has hit the papers recently.

Have not heard this term until I saw Piers Morgan making a dick/vagina/eunuch of himself on TV (although he did have a couple of decent points in fairness to him)

Shame , really , as I know 4 Hungarian folk on Skye and they're all brilliant people

So this past week, ive had someome at work make a complaint about someone and feeling attacked due to homophobia.

The person in question is from an eastern european country, and this is where it became difficult during it all they didnt at any point intend any harm/malice they just didnt simply understand how it could be accepted, because it has only just been accepted that two guys/girl's could be together... let alone that they could adopt/have their own child...

Im not defending everyone in this situation, but in the one I've listed it was clear that because they had never seen it before/experinced it they were surprised to see such a thing... and whilst this shouldn't be the way it is, unfortunately their are a lot of countires that arent as 'forward thinking' as ours...

The point I'm getting at is that don't tarnish everyone with the same brush (the same as i think Lewishham has said if ive got that wrong im sorry) but just because people have differemt backgrounds etc it dont mean their going to be stereotypical as a whole we need to give people more of a chance rather than judging someone by the cover

Apologises if ive upset anyone i dont intend to
