There were a few kicking around in the units I served in, but to be honest as long as they were good at their jobs no-one cared.Obviously, but when it became legal, did your colleagues, say 'Yep, I'm gay, but you probably guessed that' or was it something more subtle?
They practically advertised it for the WRAF as seen on this recruiting poster from the 60'sI was led to believe that in the women's services it was considered to be inevitable, so it was tolerated even though technically illegal. Well, not even technically, it was illegal. And that so many were gay, it would be almost impossible to boot them all. Wasn't one of the commandants of the WRAC also gay?
Of course he was. GB News isn't the BBC or Channel 4 where any desenting voices are shouted down and abused.It's well worth catching up on the GB News discussion. It was nice to see that even though it got a bit heated, Bell (who was the main protaganist although to be fair he was outnumbered) was treated respectfully by the others
I see Yasmin A-B has joined the Grrrring remotely. No doubt this is because she is a woman of her word and principal and no longer resides in this country post Brexit and Boris.
Instead of a professional dancer perhaps she could be partnered with Warwick Davis.Who do the BBC think is suited to their Strictly dancing show?
Now don't get me wrong. I like Ellie Simmonds* and admire her talent and tenacity in becoming an Olympic swimming champion, despite having been short-changed at the height counter.
But dancing!? That's all about controlling your legs and graceful moving about the floor, and I can't help feeling that Ellie the Aquatic Hobbit is going to be at a huge disadvantage from the very start. Tripping over her dress is going to be just the start of her problems. I mean, how the hell is a conventionally-sized partner going to ballroom dance with her? It will be like watching a father dance with his three-year old daughter at a wedding.
Call me a grump cynic, but I think that the BBC may be taking this 'diversity' and 'equality' schtick a little too far. Steven Hawking is lucky that he died before they got him to compete in the next series of
*I even have a guilty 'thing' for her. I'm going to hell.
