Hes more notable as a homosexual than a movie actor. Its not speculation at all its all cited. Hes a notable homosexual who has done some acting. Off2riorob (talk) 23:46, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Oooch.

Its just an off wiki homosexual promotional tagging group, in a bit they will all go and I will tidy up after them. as I usually do - we should be less obliging and enabling of such desirous activism. Off2riorob (talk) 23:56, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Ouch.

I have to say, his comments seem a tad homophobic or a tad...something. I don't know.

Alternatively the LBGT pushers should cease with the labelling, unless the person so labelled is noted for either LBGT activism or hypocrisy on the subject.

I don't view that as an alternative. That should happen and Off2riorob should stay away from any BLP issues relating to biographies of LGBT people.

As someone else commented in the BLPN discussion, sexuality is clearly a notable topic in the world, with multiple places where homosexuality is considered illegal and punishable by death or other places where the public utilizes "rehabilitation rape". The world considers sexuality to be important and notable, or we wouldn't have so many news sources discussing the minutiae of a person's sexuality.

Until the time that sexuality is no longer considered an important distinction, Wikipedia should continue to mirror the world and describe sexuality as a notable phenomenon, which includes listing and categorizing the people with a sexuality alternate to the norm.

Ah, so Luke Evans alternates his sexuality? Now everything makes sense.

That's a nice "neutral" world you have there.

Neutrality is subjective.

It is only in the heads of labelling, tagging, gossiping, prurient little fuckwits, that are incapable of adding any significant biographical content, and out of ignorance, stupidity and areholery resort to slurping up whatever putrid slim they come across.



Clue: no one else, other than those listed above, gives a fuck about anyone's sexuality, their religion, or their ethnicity unless that fact holds a spotlight on why they are notability.

Has your arseholery left you so bereft of intelligence that you are unable to apprehend that tagging some one as gay, jew, asian, or whatever the fuck else, and killing people under the same criteria, stems from the same mental illness.

I'm not even going to respond to that until you have a proper response (ie, no shouting or cursing).

I'll leave others to tell youi taht when you're not being prissy, you are mainly either acting like a whiny shit, or are just childishly annoying.

Yeah, that's how Wikipedia sees it. Truth is also subjective, which means that "what's true" is whatever a few Wikipedia editors and administrators agree is true. No wonder the place is falling apart. If I want to find out how many square miles in Wisconsin, no problem to use Wikipedia. But when it comes to anything that might have more than one viewpoint, forget it. I see that they removed Evans from the "gay" category and then froze the article. And they're pissed off that gay people have been coming there to weigh in. See, this is the kinda crap that happens when you decide that there's no distinction between fact and opinion. Politics and tribal identity substitute for facts, and you get a "reference guide" that's just a collection of whatever ax this or that small group chose to grind that day.

Wikipedia is plain unreliable, and its administrators are the sort of tinpot shitheads who handed you that hall pass in high school. No wonder so few people bother with it anymore.
