    So basically, God is pissed off with any sexual activity whatsoever that isn't hetero, and within marriage. He must be pretty upset by now. Strange we haven't heard from him. Unless the new plague is Him, but if so He should let us know.

    That's a great get out of jail card if you're caught having a gay affair. You can literally say it never happened. They probably got their playbook from the Catholic Church and all those pesky abuse cases that never happened but keep cropping up.

    Does that also mean It Wasn't Me by Shaggy is endorsed by the church?

    It's OK, he was just clumsily trying to say that Sikhs didn't participate in WW1. God bless 'im.

    Plot twist: Laurence goes on "Who do you think you are?" and discovers his grandfather fought alongside a Sikh and had an affair. The first recorded same-sex couple of WWI.

    Laurence breaks down in tears and finally finds closure.

    Lewis ratings skyrocket.

    Just remembered the time the BNP or some other fuckwits put out a flyer that featured a good ol' British Spitfire from an entirely Polish squadron.

    Fucking hell, from 2009.

    And the same old racist and xenophobic shit still gets thrown around. Maybe we are fucked.

    ďIt doesnít matter if itís a Polish squadron plane at all. Itís a symbol of Britainís struggle at the moment. ďUsing that plane doesnít go against our policies. ďItís not a question of disliking the Polish people Ė itís just a question of economics.Ē

    Gosh, how quaint it all sounds now with the shit we get served as 'legitimate concerns and debate' these days.

    Stop picking on him, Jambo. We need brave pioneers like him rewriting and whitewashing history to make it more palatable to an openly-racist post-Brexit audience.

    I know, I know as he so bravely says he's not a historian and is proud of supporting a world where anyone can have an opinion in the marketplace of ideas.

    To be completely fair to the guy, recognising a mistake and apologising for it is not the norm for these types.

    Heís obviously still the absolute worst, but itís a bit of a surprise move.

    Office chat should be more inclusive then.

    They'll be banning speaking English before you know it. Although I did have a former colleague back in my civil service life who complained to management that two colleagues were speaking Urdu to each other during their lunch break. She felt as if and I quote "they could be talking about anything!"

    To be very slightly fair... I like football as much as the next heterosexual patriot but there are a couple of Top Lads at work who play football manager like itís their job and talk about it at work like they do actually manage their teams IRL, so I do have a vague appreciation for how fucking annoying women would find standard football chat.

    Because if I have to listen to another conversation about an experimental formation they are trying out tonight, Iím going to lose my mind.

    As somebody who has almost zero interest in football I'd be happy with less sport chat.

    But the idea that it alienates women is a bit of fashioned and reductive. Several of the women near me talk about the football a fair bit. My manager loved rugby. Even outside of the workplace, my niece is very much into football and goes to games ever month or so.

    The idea that sport chat leads to conquest chat is fucking dumb. If the lads are that way inclined they talk about that crap anyway.

    And what about women taking about their manicures and acrylic nails? Isn't that divisive too? I mean I can't join in with that, I have to just sit there and pretend I don't secretly want to paint my nails.

    Everyone talks about dull shit at work though, whether it's sports, computers (I'm fucking surrounded by nerds) or what little Peter did at school last week. Trying to force people to talk about approved subjects feels very fucking weird and a bit totalitarian.

    Yeah, you could probably just trim that down to Ďstop talkingí.

    Unless they are offering to get me a coffee, I donít want to hear it.

    And yeah it's pretty patronising to woman to suggest that the big mean men are overpowering the office with their football chat.

    Equally, several of the guys here keep fucking talking about Love Island too, so the idea that's purely a woman thing is reductive too.

    If I try and bring up Dark Crystal or The Expanse I just get blank looks. Trying to explain Devilman resulted in very glazed eyes.

    I've actually taken to using generic IT Crowd footballisms just to engage with people.

    Our biggest football bore is a woman and a Scouser.

    I work from home a lot.
