Evening Steve. Hope you’re keeping well matey. Talking to a APC delivery driver today. He was telling me that they are desperate for drivers all over the country. Says that if they don’t get drivers they stand to lose some big contracts. You ok pal ?

I am not homophobic by any stretch of the imagination and in some ways 2 lads living together makes great sense. Go fishing without recrimination, get bladdered together, go on jolly boys outings etc etc. I cannot get my head round the sex though and I find gay kissing/sex scenes uncomfortable to watch, I wonder if straight women find lesbian scenes uncomfortable. What i don't like is when advertisers use (exploit) gay men just to tick the pc box. As I said, I am not homophobic; I just don't want it ramming down my throat😜

A lot seem to think Gays have got some sort of Lurgy or summat, they are just normal People who fall in love with the same sex, i cant imagine how some of em feel having to come out of the closet so to speak, i asked my Aunty Steven when he knew, he said for certain when he was about 13 - 14 but he thought it was a fad and would go away, a lot of Gays must feel very Lonely in their Sexuality for fear of ridicule especially letting their Family Know. What i do know is if any of my Kids were gay id not be bothered in the slightest as long as they were Happy.

You certainly find out who your true friends are...and that includes family. Sometimes those that you thought would be supportive are the most judgmental. Sadly, although things have come a long way there are still some absolutely vile people at large whose perspectives and views are rooted in the dark ages...We are just normal people....well generally......🤗

What if it were two women instead? Would you still be offended?
No, having said that I would be a little bit uncomfortable, I think this is a case where double standards are acceptable.

I am not easily offended and usually quite tolerant but I honestly do find the advert repugnant.

Am I supposed to say otherwise {pretend} because my views are politically incorrect just to keep some colloquial peace?

There is an enormous difference between speaking your mind and rudeness.

I hate this idea of living in a world where we are effectively silenced, they must not be allowed to win.
