What’s been going on this week? The Olympics. The Olympics and well the olympics.
For anyone who doesn’t like the Olympics (weirdos) the headlines this week haven’t stopped banging on about how Great Britain is just getting greater with all the gold medals. We now sit in comfortably in third place behind the USA and China. And there has been some amazing-jump-up-in-the-air-and-scream-at-the-telly gold medals. Everyone seems to have gone Olympic mad and everyone seems to be watching it. From the lucky tickets holders, to the posh people with their pimms to the people watching it in their basements eating crisps out of their hair.
Obviously I have to mention the Athletics yesterday where the sexy Jessica Ennis ran her perfect body across the finish line of the 800 metres to win gold. I didn’t know what I was more impressed with, her fabulous victory, or her abs. And then found myself thinking, well if she has the fingers to hold onto a javelin like that then they must be good for other things too. Sigh.
In other Olympic news, the International Olympic Committee has been accused of taking no action against the discrimination that comes with the sports for the LGBT athletes. In so many countries athletes have to hide their sexual orientation as this could affect their sports careers. Imagine if we couldn’t watch the fit body of Natalie Cook prancing around on the sand in a bikini? Madness.
There has been a meeting to solve the problems apparently. Like this will magically fix all the chaos that comes with being a gay sports person. A gold is a gold after all. And what they do or who they do when they go home after winning that gold shouldn’t be anyone’s business.
In watching-paint-dry excitement with gay marriage this week a Catholic Priest who looks slightly like Norris from Coronation street Hugh Gilbert has compared gay marriage to incest. He does support ‘the gays’ apparently, but he says equality should extend to everything. Because of course, fucking your brother is exactly the same as marrying the girl you’ve loved for twenty years. Ridiculous. It’s like saying we should all start putting hair gel or lube on our toast because it’s the same as marmite.
Through out the week, pop star Mika has also come out which was a surprise to no one. Even my cat knew, and she doesn’t really like pop music (she’s more into rock). What was a surprise however was that Vietnam’s first gay pride event when ahead without any bother. Cyclists went through the town and no one stopped them or shook their fists at them which is always a bonus. Belfast, Leeds, and Liverpool also celebrated prides this week and apart from a terrifying thunder storm, went down without a hitch.
