The Funty,

Interesting.

This is what the 'experts' suggest parents do with terrible twos, ignore them, exclude them socially, don't let them wind you up.

Is this approach applicable in all cases: e.g. psycho killers, North Korea?

Surely it's arguable that the idea of a the greeks and their perfect male form is actually a fantasy of Winckelmann and his influence on neo-classicist art in the 18th Century.

Garscadden: I am not an expert in ancient Greek Art, but I am relatively knowledgeable of Greek philosophy. Art reflects philosophy, so I take the Greek philosophical works, not the art, to be representative of ancient Greek thought.

Oh, that s made me feel hot! I need to cool down.

Do you not think there s been a tremendous change within society generally, with regard to social contact? It used to be unusual for older children and adults to hug each other whereas now it s normal practice for people to hug each other when meeting or leaving. My parents loved me to bits but never expressed it in physical affection and i made a conscious effort to ensure that within my family we express our love through hugs and cuddles. Providing it is sincere there s nothing nicer than a hug.

With regard to sport, i do think there is something quite heart warming about male camaraderie.

When I kiss and hug my children in UK I feel I am being judged suspiciously. When I kiss and hug my wife and kids in Africa I feel I am being judged as a real husband and father. WTF happened to my country?

Nothing...only changes are in your head.

Why do you feel like that?

Troubled dearie?

Brighton would probably need to get into the Premier League for much to be done about it (unfortunately).

Brighton's full of them so it's fair game. What do want the opposing fans to sing? Quadrophenia? It's a laugh.

What, 100% full?
The stats say it's about 13% of the pop, unless you're there on the Saturday of Pride Week for the parade which IS 100% gay. Brighton has the highest percentage of 'cohabiting same sex couples' at 1.29%. There's a higher percentage in Kampton, but you'd be safe from molestation in the rest of the town.

This interests me, sort of. So people go to a football match to sing?

There's a certain way football fans sing, that dirge, chant style. When I was singing in a choir, the leader congratulated some of the members on the volume of sound they were making but we were also told to aim for quality as well as quantity.

So football fans can't even sing correctly.

I wouldn't be that surprised if the gay population of Brighton actually goes down over Pride celebrations. I know a lot of Brighton residents leave town for the bigger parties, and also that a lot of people who come down for Pride aren't necessarily gay (hmm, that makes me sound like I'm saying they should be, I'm not at all).

But aren't we way off topic now?

(PS - I've never been molested in any part of Brighton, from Kemptown to Hove)

What I'm saying is, they can sing 'Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound', but the sound has to be sweet. Try Joan Baez for inspiration.

A long time ago, some French friends of my family confused us by saying they were fans of John Best, meaning the singer Joan Baez in fact but we thought for a moment they meant George Best.

On Youtube, you can find Joan Baez with Nana Mouskouri singing Plaisir d'Amour. Surely the sweetest sound in pop music?

A facetious comment for The Tiger.

A friend of mine who's gay absolute hates all that sort of thing. It certainly bothers him a lot more than it bothers me.
And I've been molested in Kemptown, but it was by a Scouse beggar.

All together now "A beach is a place where a man can feel he's the only soul in the world that's for real..." Nah, doesn't quite fit the "Que sera sera" cadences does it?
