    Why is it live n let live though?

    I couldn’t care about the gay thing but it’s the fact he’s ‘brave’ for shagging other people for the last god knows how many years when he was married with children.

    But in this day and age celebrating being some sort of minority trumps any wrong doing in people’s eyes.

    If it’s true about Mcgreevy (which I’d say is looking favourite considering all his social media has gone, this morning have removed his show reel from Twitter etc) then it’s nothing to be proud of!

    If it was a young woman he’d been following on twitter since she was 15, taken under his wing and been shagging behind his wife’s back... how many people would be saying “so proud of you for confirming your heterosexuality”


    I’m just sick of the whole proud BS. I think there will be some celebs with egg on their face when the full stories surface over the coming weeks. They even rolled out the sickening crap on dancing on ice!

    Oh, and I want rainbows back FFS! Why is it I can’t see a rainbow now without it having some ‘meaning’. My GF is a nurse and now has to wear a rainbow badge to show support, arrgghh

    Want equality? Stop trying to stand out as something special.

    I don't think NHS staff have to wear a rainbow badge, rather that they can choose to or not.

    If you see one of our staff wearing a rainbow badge, they have made an informed choice to do so. This means you can be sure they are a friendly ear, willing to listen without judgment and will know how to signpost to the support available. So please don't be afraid to talk to them.

    I really hope this whole thing about a 15 year old boy isn’t true. What is it with celebrities and social media, ‘following’ children on Twitter ffs. First the Scottish MP thing, which sounds very fishy - then (allegedly) this. I wouldn’t dream of ‘following’ a 15 year old girl on Twitter, let alone asking her out for a coffee or instigating any kind of relationship and I’m not a celebrity - it’s just not something that would even cross my mind, like I wouldn’t be a pen friend back in the day with a child or sit next to a random young girl in a coffee shop and instigate a conversation. I’m 50 something, she’s 15 it just isn’t quite right. 2 middle aged men who have previously been in straight marriages ‘come out’ as gay and then there’s evidence (in 1 case at present) of involving a minor. Very dodgy - like an attempt is being made to somehow dodge the underage issue because of their sexuality. A paedophile is a paedophile, gay, straight or any way you want to describe your sexuality in 2020. Like I say I hope it isn’t true.

    Of course it’s not limited to celebrities, but being a celebrity probably helps.

    Having children was his choice - marrying a women and spending many years as her husband was his choice.

    Personally, it really doesn’t bother me, and I feel everyone should be free to express themselves as they choose, provided they don’t hurt others, but lesser celebs would be facing a little bit more of a backlash.
    Totally agree with that. Selling his story to a tabloid sums the bloke up. My family know one of the daughters from university, poor girl is really going through it. A very selfish man.

    So this "runner" was 15 when Schofield started to converse with him on social media? Is that right?

    Having watched him come out on TV, did he actually put on a gayer voice for it?

    There’s a huge storm being covered up at the moment surrounding his alleged young boyfriend. Wonder if we’ll ever know what happened surrounding this fella, I mean Phill has known him since the lad was 10 so it’s strange they fell out.

    I think that’s all safe haha

    Would everyone be treating him the same way if he came out as having been banging a woman behind his wife’s back ? We all know the answer is no, then he’d have been vilified by the press not exactly equality is it, does this make it hetrophobic ?

    Except he hasn’t come out as ‘banging’ anyone, just deciding to tell everyone he’s gay after years of marriage?!? I don’t really understand why he feels he has to share with the nation tbh

    That's the point being hinted at by some: there's a scandal in the offing and he's pre-empting it.

    Because our tabloid media is intrusive, and with almost certainty would have been about to publish an ‘exclusive’ had he not outed himself.

    I can't stand him for this.

    He gets called a hero for living a huge lie for decades... probably going with other people and most likely lying and cheating behind his wife's back.
    I hide from MY wife the fact that I am going on drinking session for a day and I am public enemy number one.

    Where's the fairness?

    Although I started this thread, and with hindsight, I agree. If he'd been having a 27 year affair with a woman he'd be out on his ear.

    Which is what happened to Gareth Thomas - he went on TV to decry the fact that the media had taken away his privilege to tell his parents in private on his own terms.

    Not wishing to defend the press, but we should not lose sight that he waited 35 years before he came out.

    So yes, the press did "take away his privilege", but then he failed to exercise his.

    Ryan Giggs got SPOTY after he was caught having an affair with with Wife's sister. Classy!

    But i agree. PS has effectively been cheating on wife for years. Not something people should respect or celebrate. Its terrible.

    Hopefully she will take him to the cleaners and find a partner who will give her happiness.

    It was his brothers wife for a number of years I think, plus a number of other football groupies. Always remained loyal to United though.

    After lots of reading (old itv workers & friends of the ‘lad’) on Twitter it’s supposedly common knowledge he’s had a flat in Southwark where he’s been at it for many years. Look at Joan Collins “why did he feel the need now, everyone knew he was gay” The BS is he’s just decided he’s gay! It’s a bit of a mickey take and there’s definitely a cover up as people are tweeting like mad about it yet it’s nowhere trending on Twitter, This morning remove show reels of the lad from twitter, delete tweets, Twitter are blocking people who dare talk about it too much.

    One of the first people to report on YT (who had well over a million views last time I looked) was struck off Twitter for gaining traction.

    So much for freedom of speech!

    The problem for me is the safeguard one IF it’s true he was at it with this lad, he’s known him many years and when you look at the special treatment this runner got (doing interviews on this morning, making little appearances in the background, seen out in restaurants) then it’s be a bit dodgy wouldn’t it?

    Someone even tweeted last July that he’d found out about the affair and flat (friend of the lad who finds out when their affair ends). That’s months before it all came out. This was around the time the lad was ousted from this morning and went to loose women. This was a runner that turned into schofield’s PA and reported by colleagues as being strange as they were very close.

    He was 35 when he came out, but far enough. Let's say he had 17 years to tell his folks if it makes you feel better.

    But on the point of determining sexual preference at birth, I suppose it's dependant upon whether you subscribe to the idea that gay people are born, or whether you subscribe to the idea that they develop gay tendencies as a result of their upbringing, formative years, personal experiences, etc and are effectively made.

    If the former, then I would imagine GT at least suspected he might be gay when around 11-13. If the latter then it might explain why it took PS at least the last 27 years (the time he was married) to figure out that he was gay.
