    The next James Bond will almost certainly be a Bi s3xual also cus thats what the general public is clamouring for changing genders worked well for Dr Who but just dont look at the viewing figures.

    Does make me wonder sometimes whether thereís a bigger agenda to somehow make us all become one ***, gender? itís going too far.. but itís headlines like this on the bbc that make people click the link. We all think the same of it, the writer will think.. oh my article was read by so many, in that case iíll write more of these stories. The consequences of this example happens right across the board. Racism headlines encourage clicks.. then itís us here debate and argue, same with the petrol crisis.. the overall impact it causes is division.

    Anyway, iíve gone off tangent here. I donít know why DC and even those like Netflix need to be or be needing to promote these? I donít have anything against those that are gay or bi***ual but itís just pure tokenism that seems to be the populis direction they all take. Itís as if they are trying to promote and encourage people to come out? What do you all think?

    To be honest Regis, I don't know what to think. It's beyond me.

    I think itís more a case of being terrified as being identified as not having gay, bi s e x u a l or black in your offering be you a media outlet, a TV programme or a franchise like Superman.

    Nobody want to be seen as not engaging with LBGT issues.

    Iíd be interested to know how many openly gay people everyone on here has worked with during their working life and how many same s e x couples have lived on streets youíve lived on?

    In 43 years of work I have worked with one gay man and two women.

    I have lived in six different houses and have never been in the same street or estate as a same s e x couple.

    Although this is now an accepted part of life but it is vastly over represented in all parts of film and media.

    It's quite a clever marketing tactic from DC. Their target audience isn't adult men who follow football, it's young ****agers who are far more liberal these days. They couldn't give a monkeys about upsetting anyone else, as they won't be the ones buying the comic. The more that older generations give it attention, the more the young liberals buy it. There is probably a massively growing young LGBT market for comic heroes with shared values.

    Bond on the other hand is a disaster waiting to happen. Give us a more liberal Bond, away from the character that Fleming created and it's main audience won't follow it. You can see it coming a billion miles off.

    There's a true saying 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'. This applies to film and television. Look at 'The Italian Job'. The new version was set in America for God's sake. Bore no resemblance to the original. Why call it 'The Italian Job?' Bond in it's current format has been extremely successful so why change it?

    It’s all a form of anarchy; instead of violent street protests that have been the hallmark of anarchist activity, the focus is now more surreptitious by using the media, who are , by and large, conveniently left of centre. Break down the values that are held by the vast majority of people and try to shame anyone that disagrees. There’s so much fake news about nowadays that more and more people, especially the young, swallow it. The majority, I fear, do not realise that they are being hoodwinked.
