Some deem an individuals sexual orientation as a serious issue, I personally couldn't give a fuck and believe I'm in the majority with that assessment.

Poll to ascertain if people are bothered by sexual orientation in this day & age. If it transpires that people aren't bothered then the subject of being gay is surely a non issue.

I'm not sure anyone is going to vote yes on a public poll if they seriously have a problem with homosexuality.

I haven't got a problem with gays and it pisses me off when people moan about them having gay pride events. They say 'we don;t have hetereosexual pride' so why should they rub our faces in them being gay? Erm maybe because for centuries they've been fucking oppressed by the likes of you for being gay?

Really? I've never heard anyone say that.
I have :lol: Let them have one, not sure what oppression they're fighting against but hey ho...dont imagine the turn out to be particularly great. Theres even a straight pride flag.

I dont have a particular problem with it tbf. Just that in my experience people who want straight pride/flags etc. tend to start conversations with "I'm not homophobic, but..."

I voted no, but I seriously dislike events like Pride. It just gives out a totally false message, with loads of gay guys going around wearing pretty much nothing. It plays into the stereotype of gay people being hedonistic sex obsessed and does very little to actually normalise homosexuality.

Nope, I think homophobia is disgusting personally. My brother is gay and I have a lot of gay friends. What difference does it make if somebody is gay or straight, it's just stupid. Equality for all.

Wearing very little is what heterosexuals do in town centres every Saturday evening.

And not everyone on Pride marches dresses like that. My mum went on one a few weeks ago, and I don't think she dressed like that. I will have to check next time I talk to her.

Few mates of mine reckon pride has become shit. Dunno if they're being hipster but apparently "it's turned too commercial and is no longer about supporting the cause and strengthening the community"

Not in the slightest as It's never concerned me, although I do object to the hi-jacking a perfectly innocent word such as gay.

I voted yes because I was in a Weatherspoons a few months ago and this gay lad was trying it on with me....I was very uncomfortable.


Seriously though...gay people don't bother me at all. I seem to unintentionally follow gay pride around the country....they're the best nights out too.

I'd be a tad uncomfortable if my child was gay but only because older generations in my family are religious nuts and being gay doesn't quite follow suit to their imaginary world.
