Phillip Schofield: ITV presenter comes out as gay .. say all news outlets.

Please treat other members in a constructive and friendly manner: Our Community Guidelines.
  • Posters need to remember that until the late 60s homosexuality was a criminal offence, and it was vital to keep ones sexuality a secret. Many prosecutions ended in public shame, and suicide

    The effects of that are still around today and the publicity around a high profile celeb can only be helpful to dispel the stigma. Plenty have "come out" and told of their relief

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • My two gay male friends, of whom I met for a drink tonight, think the same as I do. They say the Schofield is of no significance and should have kept his mouth shut and respected his wife and children. No one gives a shit about his sexual preference and total disrespect for his wife.

    I don't believe you

    Given your attitude I would be amazed that any gay folk would want to be anywhere near you

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • I have switched bryanluc off but I do see his comments in follow-up posts which become part of the narrative.

    But the one common factor both he and Jennydots and all les.libs ply is their assuming because you challenge or analyse a subject you therefore MUST hate the person, group, or topic so related. This is why you can not have a proper debate.

    Example: I support border control... so as far as les.libs are concerned I must hate foreigners, especially brown skinned foreigners, when all I have stated is my preference for controlling who comes into our country.

    Extend this mindset to Schofields pathetic life.... les.libs presume you hate gays or are anti same sex whatever?? nothing of the sort has ever been said or intimated. They assume I hate gays, despite there not being one word from me in this tone. All I have said is to do with the MSM putting Schofields "coming out" as an important subject of any relevance to the general populace, which it is not. Especially when real serious matters affecting peoples lives are not in the news where they should be.

    The fact we have had another Muslim machete attempt to annihilate people out shopping in a London street is soon pushed to second or 10 the place behind Schofield "coming out" is both bizarre and shameful worse still because the leftie agenda want it so.

    I must congratulate you on your sharp capacity to discern upon the Le.libs . I do however separate normal good, serious Labour/left wingers who attach to improving the lives for working people. Wages - NHS - Pensions - rights etc etc ... Leftie liberal ideologues do not think in this way. They dont care they just hate people who do not align with them... and I mean real HATE.

    I speak as an EDL die-hard ..... Effortlessly Debate Liberals. !!

    I have yet to see or hear one back up any challenge using logic and intelligence... the proof is out there.. they insult via name calling and labeling.

    I dont know why they are of this mindset... regurgitating what they are told via false respect of fake teachers and TV shows and the Guardian etc.

    They also never, ever say anything about themselves as this leaves them weak and open to challenge, even respectful normal challenge is not within them.

    If my post is in this colour  it is moderation. Take note.

  • Forums are about exchanges of views and I hope in time, you may have more optimism in this place.

    We all like to express our point of view, and that's fair enough. However, The views expressed by some - quite forcefully - demand that they be heard and no other opinion tolerated.


    Any opinion contrary to that of the extreme right of politics is dismissed out of hand with no supporting evidence or reasonable argument.


    Any discussion that isn't approved of by such individuals is spammed until it becomes no longer viable. I tried to start a discussion regarding dance and it was mercilessly spammed until it wasn't worth my trying any more. I would like to be able to start discussions on theatre, literature and cinema but I don't think it's worth bothering because I have no confidence that the same thing won't happen, and the wholly inadequate level of moderation (indeed, a moderator contributed to the spamming of the dance discussion) means these people know they will get away with it.


    I think they actually enjoy the sheer wanton ignorance of what they do.


    I can look after myself in the rough and tumble of forum discussion but what is disappointing and frustrating is that so many here are - I believe - deliberately obtuse. I don't mind my arguments being debunked if it's done in by intellectual process, but having taken the trouble to construct an argument, with supporting evidence and links to authoritative articles from reliable sources, to be told the equivalent of "Nah, not going to happen. You're wrong because your argument doesn't correspond with my agenda." Doesn't exactly help the debating process.


    The only reason I stay with this forum is to use it as a barometer of extremist right-wing attitude in the current political climate. I take what I read here to other places I frequent and use it as examples of the current malaise in British politics.


    It's sad really. This could be a good site. But right now, it isn't.

  • Its definitely NOT off topic not by any means or logic. The patently obvious reference by intimation (as it is literally in the Schofield thread, I started) is the time and significance our MSM gives the Schofield decision to do the dirty on his wife and children... he admits to being in relation ships with men...you are squeezing the life out of proper debate and individual opinions being expressed as they deem fit.

    It is ridiculous to delete my last post... you are policing my opinion... with no basis in causation to the accepted rationale on free speech.

  • Pathetic snowflake. For gods sake grow up. You dish out personal insults, even after only a day on the forum, to people you have not a clue about. People dont care about your feelings... just debate the topic.

    It dont wash with me gal. You leftie liberal egocentric ideologues re NOT in the room.

    I remind all members that the topic is Philip Schofield coming out gay. Not shoe colour or any other off topic crap.

  • As we all know, about 80-90% of all those in media are gay, ranging from midget actors who belong to religious cults, to news/political tv presenters.


    Perhaps it's not obvious to them, although I don't buy that for a second, but it is to everyone else.

    Whats this??? is this about Schofield? Oh yes of course... because my imagination and ability to discern and the fact it is in the Thread logically tells me.. but not directly.. that this is about Schofield. Not TV presenter crap??

  • Can someone tell me how an issue is "forced" upon people?

    Jennydots.. you are probably a very nice person in fact I bet you really are. But can you not see that YOU personalise your comments and insult people. I dont get offended but I will debate the attitude within a post when it drifts from the topic towards the writer/typer?

    If you re going to dish out labels .. EDL, right winger, along with B.luc then you must not get upset when I respond like-minded. But I do not complain. I dont mind, my aim becomes one of showing your hypocrisy.

    You get upset - but YOU dish it out and even to people on your second day using this site.

    I dont mind its not my site. But stop moaning.... if you debate the SUBJECT/Topic without focusing on the person who stated it then you will be fine. I dont you - you dont know me. So it is crass stupidity to aim your vitriol at me in person.

    I dont mind - its a free world and I am a free speech absolutist.

    But heres the rub... you will take the piss out of this response .. instead of moving on and just be open minded.

    Please yourself.

  • Another meaningless waste of space ramble and rant

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • Another meaningless waste of space ramble and rant

    Yes. And my patience is wearing thin with it, as is members who continually throw out EDL labels against others.

    If my post is in this colour, it is a moderator decision. Please abide by it.

  • Well you will never find any thread or post from me anywhere on your forum attacking another individual EXCEPT IN RESPONSE to them first aiming insult at me.

    I do not have your luxury of deleting or banning people.

    How would you respond to being called and EDL - Racist - LIAR - Walter Mitty ?? When you have only expressed honest opinion on a subject? I am not a snowflake but I will not accept such shite from Jennydots and Bryanluc.... I have never, ever, NOT ever started with the insults.

    They know YOU have the power to delete their membership ..

    If I am called /labelled racist - liar .... do you think I have the right of reply - just to see how those dishing it out react??

    Many years ago in Britain Schofield would of been locked up for Buggering. lol Is Buggering now classed as been a Hero in Britain? He's a traitor to his family.

  • Many years ago in Britain Schofield would of been locked up for Buggering. lol Is Buggering now classed as been a Hero in Britain? He's a traitor to his family.

    Yep. I have had both Jennydots and Bryanluc say... "well you know what they say about people who keep on about it"? // This childish retort in itself implying I am a Homosexual (in the closet) and also implying it is a bad thing to be one. LOL. They will not allow accept it when you say.. "my best friends are homosexual male married to each other, my wife read her own poetry at their wedding by request"... they respond .. "that old , my friends are gay, chestnut"!! You cant debate with these people. This proves it.

    Remember the guy ordering the cake in N Ireland, he wanted two men, gays, on the cake. The Cake maker was a devout christian who held to his belief in opposing same sex marriage and homosexual relationships, not through hate but because it was hi truly held belief emanating from thousands of years in Christianity.

    So you see the intent on the part of some gays as a community. They dont give a flying shite for the guys christian belief.. they use words such as - "hate" - "homophobe" so in effect they gays are trying to shut down free speech via identity politics agenda. Thankfully the courts saw sense and the cake shop owner won the case.

    So where is the hate and control?? Clearly from the gay people in question. This is why I challenge Le.Libs it is not just a matter of which colour shoes you wear Brown or Black it is a matter of a minority controlling the majority and they enforce with vitriol.

    I can also say that my gay friends in no way supported the attitude of the Gays ordering their cake and taking the shop owner to court.

    The impossibility arises with such people, its been proved time and time again these particular type of people are have a one way fixed mind, argumentative illogical fool hearted degenerative disordered plebs, beyond anything apart from lying to others and themselves. I wish them well! the road to failure.

  • I admire him for being so brave and coming out in a world that is still full of prejudiced
    I hope he will encourage others in the same situation to do the same

    I hope he lives the rest of his life in complete misery. He has let his wife and family down, and caused them the utmost embarrassment. If he had come out and declared he only fancies young women, he would have been declared dirty scumbag, but because he has chosen a fashionable perversion it's OK, and we should all give him a pat on back. The UK media has gone bonkers 1

    White lives matter

  • I think he came out before he was forced to...


    There are now allegations from a friend of mine (who works for ITV Daytime) who says that Schofield has been in a relationship with a guy since he was 18 (now 22 I think he said) who used to work on This Morning, but was fairly recently transferred to Loose Women.


    I expect the papers will pick this up after a respectable amount of time since Schofield came out so as not to upset the LGB community.

    I think it's disgraceful that gay men lead women on and use them (and their own children) to mask their true sexuality. What's more disgraceful, however, is that society makes some (weaker?) men feel obliged to do this to fit in and be 'normal'.

    Don't forget the media is 90% gay men.

    And there you have the reason that gay men hide their true sexuality because they know the stick they will get
    it'snot so long ago that homosexuality was a criminal offence. I thought our society had become more civilised and we had moved on. Clearly not

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • And there you have the reason that gay men hide their true sexuality because they know the stick they will get

    Why do these people want to brag about their sexuality in the first place? If they don't want stick, they should shut up and stop flaunting themselves. We really don't want to know.

    Protect the vulnerable and get back to work

  • It's also disgraceful that a straight man may lead his wife on while having an affair with another woman or is that acceptable abuse. It's disgraceful that some judges or MP's will go and visit their dominatrix prostitute friend, have few lines of coke and wear a gimp mask after work before going home to their wife. :whistling:


    I don't believe there is anything wrong with being gay if one is that way inclined, I don't believe they should be allowed to have children as a child needs a mummy and daddy in a heterosexual relationship to give the child a fair playing field, but I would make an exception in the case of fostering and adoption of children in care with nowhere else to go as long as the couple met the criteria that the child is in safe hands. At the end of the day our biology states it takes a man and woman to make a baby; anything else is messing with nature and we mess with nature enough already and screw the planet and people up. A child needs a mum and a dad, not two dads or two mums otherwise there is a good chance they may grow up with mental health problems if they don't have a strong influence of the opposite sex in their life.


    I like Blue and I like Pink. There's room on this planet for both homosexuals and heterosexuals and neither should be shoving their beliefs into others faces and trying to convert them. People like Schofield actually give the gay community a bad name by coming out publicly as a publicity stunt to try and not only promote his career but promote being gay. They do the gay community no favours and the media then shit stir which then causes some of the homophobic attitudes. It's worse than that because they then go on to market it like a commodity. Without it homophobia would not be an issue. So it's kind of a self inflicted issue. Something created from nothing so they can then cry wolf. There are some fantastic beneficial things that come from the gay community. Art, architecture and interior design, music drugs, fashion, flamboyancy, comedy, how to have fun and party but promoting being gay to the extremes it's done is not one of them so maybe flamboyancy is not that beneficial and more the problem. Then again maybe that's what being gay is all about for some.


    Just another one of life complexities. There's far more important issues at hand that need dealing with, many in the gay community might not agree because they are so self obsessed like the celebrities which kind of goes hand in hand with the flamboyancy look at me I'm the star of the show. Maybe this is why so many celebrities come out as being gay. I have also met gays that are not quite as self obsessed and /or flamboyant. Usually the older more mature ones comfortable in their own body. I think I have hit the nail on the the head there. It's not homosexuality that people have an issue with. It's the flamboyancy, 'look at me I'm gay, I wont to show off everything gay about me, would you like to be gay, you know it's alright to be gay, come on join the club and lets have some fun'. 'Would you like a shag' ' here have some special k that will relax you' LOL


    If someone wants to be gay then fair enough, just don't go shoving it in everyone else face and expect them to accept it as being normal because it's abnormal and works against what nature provided for us. It's a coding error with a hack, a work around if you like. This does not mean that homosexuals are not nice people and are not an acceptable part of society. Some of of them lovely people and some of them are repulsive just like anyone else in society. I think Biggin's is a fantastic character but Craig on Strictly is repulsive. Schofield is just a knob, always has been since his children's TV presenter days. I never liked Jimmy Somerville but I like Boy George. I have never liked Elton John but I liked George Michael. I can't think of any Lesbian examples as that's more a recent phenomena.
