    To be honest I do not care what people do, what they like or what they get up to behind closed doors, its none of my Business but I do feel there is an agenda to Promote homo***uality as Normal... Normal being the very word the Wokes want banned! At 56, I have never been so confused with modern life! How can a racial tweet be headline news infront of a 2 year old dying of cancer??? What is going on???🤔

    Don't know if I'm super woke or something.... But homo***uality is normal. Its seen in all animals and.

    I don't thinks is newsworthy that someone I've never heard of (with a humourous name) is gay. Who cares?

    Glad there are same *** couples dancing on Strictly, I don't watch the programme and I don't watch soap operas but it is right that all groups of the community are shown and represented in these programmes imo.

    Maybe but why the special praise Sam? Im not alone with my thinking! People are breaking the rules to what was originally set out, especially history, phrases, words that are suddenly offensive. Its a shame im so old fashioned and im sure the programe has gained a new audience but at the cost of how many?

    I'm with Sam on this one.

    I wouldn't consider myself "woke" and actively dislike much of the bullying and aggression that's going on right now, rather than permitting, or engaging in, what should be a healthy debate, and an attempt at a mutual understanding of some sensitive issues. There's a world of difference being deliberately offensive, and innocently not using a word that would be considered pc. I think the intention behind our words is what is actually the most important. But that's for another thread.

    However, having said that, I can understand why people don't like the word normal. In so much as it's antonym is abnormal and the implication that's what we are, if we are not deemed to fit into whatever society deems as normal at any point in time. For somebody to be described as abnormal for their s e xuality isn't nice or fair. Anyway, I'm not sure what normal really is, and I'm pretty sure I'm not it.

    I don't happen to think it's any of anyone else's business what s e xuality anyone is, and ideally it shouldn't be newsworthy. That it is, just goes to show that homos e xuality still isn't fully accepted. People shouldn't have to "come out" but equally it's the coming out of high profile people over the years, which has enabled others to be more open about their s e xuality. Much in the same way I thought it positive that Tyrone spoke about his mental health issues. His mental health status is nobody's business but his own, but I'm sure he's helped people by being open about it.

    Like Sam, I think two men dancing together on Strictly is a good thing. If it means a t e e n boy who has feelings for other boy being able to be open and honest about this and feeling okay - then great. I don't think the ratings should matter. It's just about enabling people to feel accepted.
