Which two should it have been then? :?

Do you mean that you still think these two fit these so-called stereotypes? I think that everyone else is disagreeing with you. Are you trying to make the characters fit into the stereotypes?

Anyway, I've never heard of these stereotypes. I would say that a more typical stereotype is that gay men are effeminate. And neither Bengo or Pepe are that.

No-one's mad at you! If I was I would have used this :evil:

The people who made the documentary fed you a load of crap.

Keep an open mind, Meeps. Not every one fits a stereo type. and the best way to think is: It's takes a lot of differences to make the world go round!

I'm not mad at you at all. So DON'T feel bad or Meerkat Will be cross! :lol: :wink:

The only 'normal' is a washing machine cycle :wink:

As for married men - my best gay friend has had so many 'affairs' with married men he's lost count. Luckily (well actually I wouldn't care in the slightest) he doesn't fancy the housemate at all so that's a) laid to rest. It's just like being straight, one girls Brad Pitt is another's Quasimodo - you don't fancy everyone just because they're the right gender for your tastes. We're actually Dave's best friends so far as going on 'normal' holidays are concerned, because he feels 'safe' in that any other supposedly 'straight' blokes 'giving him the eye', and I can confirm they really do, assume he's with Pete and I'm their 'cover'. :P

I tell you I'd far rather go shopping or on a girlie night out with Dave than most women friends as there's more laughs and any bitching is all mutual! :wink:

A normal man who has sex with a gay one is bi-sexual or not 'out' even to himself. Old gay joke - 'What's the difference between a straight bloke and a bi-sexual? In my experience darling about 9 pints of beer.' (classify beer as lager if it helps any outraged heteros reading this :roll: ) and a pronouncement on married men who consider themselves straight but regularly sleep with blokes...

... if they become impotent as a result it's their own sense of shame at being 'weak' and inability to cope with the knowledge that they're, in their own eyes, freaks or morally decadent that makes them violent and usually that's directed at themselves and not at other people. In fact I'd go so far as to say that documentary is a textbook example of why people get so screwed up over their sexual identities and inclinations because they're made to feel they're dirty and irredeemably warped at the stigma assigned by such stupid and inhumane attitudes. :evil:

To explain (it is gnawing on me) I was confused as these fearmongering-things i heard in the documentary reminded me of the two :/ My fault I guess

Meeps, it is NOT your fault. That item you saw or read caused you uneccesary puzzlement. Forget it and move on or it will bug you for ages. :wink:

Okay, I have to annoy some of you again, other's might plain wonder why the heck I have too much time on my hands:

There's a bit about half way through the book (page 204 or so, corgi edition) that goes something like
'And thus, after a lot of bickering, UU's first match of football in decades began'

I know it's basically just 'training' but I can't help but wonder:

The Bequest just states they have to enter a team into the game, aka, play a match.
It never states it won't be ok to play faculty vs students.

Wouldn't it just have been enough to get someone from the guild of lawyers, watch their attempts and give the Okay that that counted for the next 20 years?

I mean if a game of not even 45 minutes following a set of rules (very likely) different from those active when the bequest was made, which is in its end not even played with something that by all good geometrical will COULD be called a ball, a match faculty vs students on the UU's campus should count too, shouldn't it?
