    He has since been the first voted out of the Celebrity Big Brother house this series. For those that don't know, this is an unthinkable shame to any celeb.

    I love the way he expresses himself, " that ain't the way nobody's made", if you're going to speak Evander, at least learn how to express yourself properly. As far as his views go, he's just another one coming out of the woodwork, and will eventually disappear into it again. He's a washed up has been and no one of any importance. Gays have come along way, and making negative comments such as he did, only ends up hurting the person who made the comments, not the gay community. Look at what happened to darling Anita Bryant! You would think these gay bashers would have learned that by now.

    Now, now, he's just quoting from the Republican handbook, and Fox News talking points. We should be more understanding of someone led astray by the homophobes. And hope he can find his way back to the rational, non-ideological thinking that the US Right abhors.

    Is Evander Holyfield a registered Republican? Is EVERYONE who disagrees with you a registered Republican? Once again, the Kray-Kray Kolonel injects politics into an APOLITICAL topic just to stir up trouble.


    This is interesting. I don't agree with a lot of your views SB, but I must admit you are right here. Not to call Art Deco kraykray, but to AD, you are actually making a negative statement about republicans where the topic wasn't anything related republicans or political views. This was just about the homophobic statements of some dumb person.

    If you'd all just calm down a little and stop bringing the Republican-Democrat debate into every thread, you may actually become friends some day icon_lol.gif

    No, the shame is being invited to take part.

    True. Like being in the "celebrity" cast of our US TV reality show called World's Dumbest that I'm quite sure you Brits are smart enough not to import over there.

    Washed-up former celebrities (or wannabes) do a running commentary about comical candid videos of ordinary people suffering mishaps. It includes such luminaries as the likes of disgraced ice skater Tanya Harding, and assorted obscure brothers whose only claim to fame is having a recognizable family last name, like Stallone or Baldwin, but with none of the talent associated with it.

    But I suppose when you're down and out you take what's offered you. I've never seen this Big Brother show, but am I right that it's on the same level as World's Dumbest, for those who have seen both?

    Maybe Art Deco was just confused and thought this was the political forum.

    Once again my stalker, whom I have blocked, deliberately misquotes me. I did not say Holyfield was a Republican himself, but he was quoting Republican positions.

    Things we hear actual Republicans, even office holders & candidates, say every day. The most recent example, which had a thread here, being that gays cause tornadoes. And there are similar examples all the time.

    So that I don't think it is gays who should be on the defensive when those slanders are made, but rather the Republicans who are routinely saying them. And to ask the question of how much their anti-gay hostility influences others, including people like Holyfield.

    Did Holyfield get his inspiration from the US Right Wing, and its media outlets, to say what he did? That I can't say. But it tracks with the hatred coming from the Right, and it would be unreasonable to believe that their pronouncements against gays were issued in a vacuum, and influenced no one at all.

    I'd never be confused that you're a real individual and not a sock account, having conversations in this thread with yourself.

    Thing is, you did make a non-political thread into a political argument.
