Yeah, same at our school :lol:


I heard that at my school but people were just like, "Meh, whatever."

You might be a bit younger than me but being gay at my school (so back in the early 2000s) was basically the number one crime against humanity.

I left school in 1998.

Sounds like your place was some way ahead of its time! Or maybe mine was just drastically backwards, which is very possible.

I never heard the Gay and Proud rubbish, but I can confirm that being gay was a major crime at my school.

It was odd really as there was also a craze of acting gay (calling other boys "love" for instance).

I remember being at college and somebody asking me for something and I replied with "no problem darling" and him exploding into a rage, "ARE YOU GAY OR SOMETHING!". :lol:

See I went to college straight from school and I would swear 50% of the boys were suddenly gay! It was like they'd been desperate to burst out of the closet, having been stuck in shitty schools until that point.

College was definitely more accepting than school was. That one boy was not impressed with me calling him darling though. :lol:

Yeah "Gay!" was the default insult amount boys in my secondary school, even then I thought WTF?

The other fall back was to call someone "ginger" because having red hair is the biggest crime known to man! :lol:

I remember folk considering 'So, you're gay' to be a perfectly acceptable way to end an argument.

-My dad has a better car than your dad
-My dad has better job than your dad
-My dad has a bigger house than your dad
-My dad could fight your dad
-...awkward silence So, you're gay

It's proper cringey thinking of some school banter now.

I remember having to constantly run to the aid of my one friend who got beat up all the time for being gay, dude wasn't gay people just assumed he was and thought that was enough reason to black his eyes or boot him in the ribs, school was rubbish everything was a reason for people to treat people like dirt college and uni were much better.

:lol:

My grandad used to call everyone 'love' regardless of gender, which sounded incredibly odd coming from a 6' 2" deep voiced burly Yorkshire bloke with massive hands.

It's apparently a Sheffield thing, at least its not as bad as the Derbyshire penchant for calling everyone 'duck' :dread:

There was a out gay guy at my school who once said that he had slept with a bunch of the six formers but wasn't going to name names because they weren't out. It was an all boys school so there was bound to be a bunch of gay people there.

I always thought stuff like this only happened on tv, I never witnessed or heard about anything like this when I was at school. Sounds awful.

At my school, I was always being told that i was gay (and as you said, that was considered to be a major crime as it was the mid 1990's), this is despite the fact that i was one of the few chaps in class who'd actually had a girlfriend. :|

It's an all over South Yorkshire thing. It can be incredibly annoying coming from someone a lot younger than you. Just sounds very patronising. But from the older ones it's just their way....
