    It is estimated that up to 5 per cent of the population could be lesbian or gay, which means that on any match day there could be about 400 in New York Stadium. So if this helps to make them feel included I don't have a problem with it.

    However, I think that similar support should be shown to other minority groups who follow the Millers. For example at one match we could have the corner flags decorated with bell-ends.

    Included in what? They are there to support their team/watch a game of football are they not?

    Exactly.

    Pointing out differences isn't pointing the way to equality.

    Tell that to the gay footballers who are frightened to express their true selves because they will be mocked by teammates and spectators

    So now only gay footballers get mocked?
    Yes I understand some might be scared to come out or maybe they want to stay private but it's getting a bit silly now.
    Why don't we try 4 different corner flags so we can please everybody then?

    Btw is it clubs choice or have they been told?

    No I don't agree with the bell ends flags but maybe they could give them hats to wear do I don't have to sit next to them.

    The world is going bloody mad - if a person choses to be LGBT then thats their prerogative - I'm sick of hearing about children ,yes 2,3,4 year olds being given treatment to prepare them for gender change FFS they cant even write their name at that age never mind prepare to have their tackle surgically removed and then sewn onto their mates sisters body.

    This rainbow flag idea is a great example of how entrenched this equality and diversity nonsense has become.

    I reckon 80 % of football fans think this is a moronic idea but there will be no accurate survey done to back this up, because no-one dare speak their mind because they will lose their job or be a target for the twitter mob.

    I have asked 10 people at work about it, they all laughed and thought it was a piss-take.

    It will work against the LGBT movement in the end because people are getting resentful about this stuff now.

    If I was gay there would be no way that I'd come out until I'd finished playing.

    I remember when Leo Fortune-West came back to Millmoor. I was shocked by the chanting that went on in the Tivoli.

    You're sick of hearing about 2,3,4 year olds being given pre op gender change treatment? Yet I keep up with news stories generally but I've not heard of any?! Why is that? Where are you getting your 'news' stories?

    Where are you hearing/reading about these repeated news sources?

    This may be the start in preparation for players coming out and looking for the publics respect.

    If they ran this idea throughout all football leagues on the same weekend then I think it sends a message but do the general public want this ramming down their throats week in week out?

    The sooner players who are gay came out, the better. Many a sportsperson man and woman have done so, so what’s the big hype with footballers?

    Wouldn’t make me feel any different towards them and I can’t see why it should other decent human beings. Suppose it’s just the moronic knuckle draggers who would chant something about it.

    Then again the song from the kop about ‘Keeper keeper where’s your wife?’ and
    ‘Your lass takes it up the a.rse’ might have to be re wrote to ‘And you take it up the a.rse’ if the keeper was gay.

    The sensationalist click baiting MSN and the hate stirring blame-rag Daily Mail?? Why would I do that? If I did I'd be under the twisted paper selling delusion that political correctness is ruining our lives...

    Sorry, that won't work. Bell-ends who follow the Millers are not a minority.
