    Good for you for hanging on. Life is hard enough without having to deal with societies prejudices. I wish you all the best.

    I certainly hope they had some crackpot from Iona hurling veiled insults at her now. For balance, like.

    Fair play to you Lyra…

    Your friends mother who said she’d “beat the gay out of him” if he said he was gay must be only a couple of years older than me. Baffles me sometimes… the complete loons out there.

      Just to be clear if a friends mother said ‘well, we should consider beating the gay out of him’ you would need to have another friends mother have say ‘well, we should consider beating the gay into him’ or you could find yourself in some very hot water legally.

          Ah, they do in fairness Clampers. It’s just that the other hysterical nonsense tends to overshadow it. Have you never heard the Radio Ulster version of “Thought for the Day”?

    Very impressive lass.
    Iona et al brand of trenchant idiocy will no doubt trot out some scientific stats to discredit her. save your breath bozos.
