Just a little linguistic amusement

This One Love armband.

Yes, obviously, we all get the point.

And yet within one subset of one sector of the LGBTQetc communities there’s the obvious point that sexuality is pretty much defined by not limiting those physical expressions of love to the one. Monkeypox wouldn’t be the problem it is if this were different.

Just amuses.

  1. Couldn’t care less about soccer
    Couldn’t care less about ragheads
    Couldn’t care less about poofs

    They can bugger each other senseless on every soccer pitch in Shitholistan and I still wouldn’t give a monkeypox.

  2. Physical gestures such as taking the knee – ok.
    So you want to show some kind of kinship to the suffering LNER+ community, but wearing something is barred.
    Then come up with a physical gesture then.

    These footballers are not exactly clever.

  3. Bongo

    I know ! I know !

    The players should then get on all fours and stick their bottoms in the air !

    Ha take that, fundamentalists !

  4. I went for a swim and a walk along the beach this morning…

    Got to the end of the beach to find to my horror two of them shagging behind a rock…

    A MonkeyPox on all of the disgusting creatures!

  5. The players should then get on all fours and stick their bottoms in the air !

    Don’t the locals all do that every Friday?

  6. Brilliant by Ottokring
    I was thinking of the two knees with pressing the tongue into the cheek, but the local prayer position with wiggle is better.

    “Got to the end of the beach to find to my horror two of them shagging behind a rock…”

    Were they netting them or shooting them, and aren’t they a protected species in Cyprus?

  8. Do us a favour. Politics has infested every fucking area of our lives and not for the better. Some (most?) of us just want to watch our sport / the beautiful game. Unlike the Lewis Hamilton (I want you to know how i’ve struggled against racism all my life but still live in Monaco with as much money as Cresus) / Sebastian Vettel (just listen to ME while I lecture YOU on fossil fuel use!!!!!) F1 borefest where the most exciting bit is when someone gets overtaken in pit lane, MotoGP and Superbikes haven’t entered into this madness, so why can’t football do without it?

    If you want to play football, go into football. If you want to play politics, go into politics. 

  9. the beautiful game.
    It’s a curious expression, isn’t it? It’s hard to see a team of footballers as particularly decorative. There was one depicted on the front page of the Torygraph this morning had a face on him rarely seen outside the monkey house at the zoo.

  10. Back in 1938 the British foreign office ordered the England football team to give the Hitler salute before a game in Nazi Germany

    Politics has been mixed into football for a long time

  11. Now you’d get thrown out the ground & be banned for life.
    Politics has been mixed into football for a long time
    Not noticeably changed though.

  12. BiS, you may well be right about the looks of some of the participants but let’s be fair, it’s not a beauty contest. And i’d rather have had David Beckham on the right side of midfield than Stephen Hawking…….
