A lot of homophobic people on hotukdeals.


May not be due to people being homophobic but more to do with the individual posting of so many "pride" events as quite a few people on here will take the view it "clogs" up the site and could have all been put in one post and will vote every individual post cold as a result

Is there any chance they were simply struggling to see a deal here?

Is it attend one attend the rest free?

I'm with you on that. No need to past so many when one well written post work links would've done the job.
Hey, leave our rainbows alone!!
I think we have got to the stage in society that homosexuality is accepted as mainstream. It then begs the question, why have 'pride' events for a single aspect of normality? Cold
The other day I came on here for the first time in a while, I just don't like/not yet used to the new layout. I was scrolling for ages to get past all the single free amazon kindle books/series when previously I've seen single posts with a list of books. Many of these individual posts were posted by the same person.

I didn't vote all of those cold even though I was annoyed.

Oh and it's not a deal - that's why it's in the FREEBIE section, mate.

I really do not want to kick the hornets nest here and I appreciate that your view of homosexuality as an aspect of normality is a reasonably progressive one, but I have to query your comment

It is my view that although the need for community and solidarity, especially in less tolerant times, may lead to some in the LGBTQ+ community to view Pride as an intrinsic part of one's cultural identity and would thus favour continuity, I would imagine that a large consensus of those who organise and participate aspire to a world where such events do not need to take place.

Although it may be your lived experience that you and your peer group do not contribute to culture of homo/transphobia, many feel the need for solidarity, safe spaces (from verbal and physical abuse) and protest through defiant visibility. Unless one has the experience of growing up gay or trans and has experienced no targeted abuse or discrimination for who they are, is it their place to declare whether Pride is required or not?
As a member of the LGBT community I really do not think I am a homophobe and I voted cold.... as said before no need to post a seperate post for every event as there would be loads.... and also I dont think its really a Deal/Freebie as such...

Next we will have listings for summer fetes, car boot sales, etc etc...

Do summer fetes and car boots have much you can attend and enjoy without paying anything?

Are you for real.... do you think everything at a Pride Celebration is FREE ? do you think the food is free, the drink is free, t-shirts, flags etc... and some of the bigger pride festivals are NOT FREE - Manchester (which has been listed here) is £18 for admittance...

Why don't you quote me where I said or even implied I thought everything was free and then see if you can answer your own question?

The fact that Manchester Pride, compared to Wigan Pride, isn't free actually only adds to my point, non?

I think you've completely misunderstood what I've said, why I said it and who I said it to.

And then to top it off, you've replied in shouty caps.
