      Saw not seen! While certain aspects of Hiberno-English are endearing, the “I seen it done” and “he done us proud” beloved of our bucolic brethren, is most certainly not.

        Bucolic brethren?!? Shurrup yer gammy face, boy. A lot of Dubs use ‘I seen’ & ‘I done’.

          Well I see somebody has got their high-waisted O’Neills GAA shorts in a twist. Calm down my agrarian amigo.

    I’m all for a Yes vote in May but this ….. this looks terrible. It’s a real shame that the media (not just the Irish media) must rush to Big Gay characters whenever the topic of homosexuality is to be addressed. It must be really depressing to the large majority of gay people who don’t go to drag shows every week and don’t talk about sex every 5 minutes.

      Sure (in the words of panti bliss) we all know a flaming queen…..You should know real gay people do nothing but dance to ABBA and have casual sex and dress like the opposite sex.

      Grow up Pablo with this antediluvian schtick – is this SO 10 years ago. The “plight” of the straight-acting or marginalised “masculine” gay whatever that means has been parsed ad nauseam and most people are over it. If you feel uneasy with certain gay people and unable to see beyond, that is more a reflection of your own issues and insecurities, than your perceived grievance with the media for hyping up a camp coterie much to your chagrin.

      Most of us have grown up and realise gay people come in all shapes and sizes, no one “type” being better than the other and each deserving of respect. You might like a brawny gay rugby player as the imagine of the new “normal” gay man but life is just a little bit more complicated and diverse than that. Just be yourself perhaps, lose the velvet rage and stop judging.
