FFS, Is this a joke?

There is about as much need for this as there is for a special IOM cheese supporting Penguin rights in the Southern hemisphere.

WHY?

I REALLY MEAN WHY?

 

 

 

What's the problem? It's just the same cheese in a special wrapper

Because the fact that they are doing it still pisses some people off? Just like the real need for sex education in school is largely caused by parents who don’t think there’s a need for sex education in school.

Mature Cheddar is a bit masculine though. Obviously not as Alpha Male as Stilton or Roquforte.

Maybe a Brie or Camembert would have been a better choice?

I think you’re entering very dangerous territory by trying to start a debate on which type of cheese is gay enough and which isn’t 😂

I'll tell you why.

Because the young lad or lass reading this kind of absolute shite might be the next one to end up committing suicide. And the family will be left torn apart. The creamery are donating 10p from every pack to the Isle of Pride charity who support people in these kind of situations, plus help with education and other community activities. There are still people being turned down for jobs because of the way they speak or dress or who they identify as.

Saw a great piece from the Halifax yesterday, customers were getting all hot under the collar about a member of staff having pronouns on her badge. Halifax response: close your account and go elsewhere. Great comeback. 

Thankfully the Alf Garnett-esque members of society are dwindling apart from the noisy few.

It's not a great come back though as many probably would go elsewhere. Trying to exercise some sort of mind control over customers has got nothing to do with commercial businesses. The Halifax is there to bank your money and give you a mortgage. They aren't there to educate you about any issues in life or to tell you what you 'should' think about any given situation. And honestly some condescending idiot junior bank worker took that approach with me I'd happily close my account because I want to bank with a bank not a branch of the woke social services.

No, but the junior bank worker, and all the bank staff up to Branch Manager, CEO and chair, are entitled to be shown respect and referred to by their correct chosen pronoun, whether it be he/him, she/her, or they/them.

That being said I took umbrage when the Law Society tried to make us refer to each other as “Advocare….”.

I think you'll struggle then as I'd imagine most if not all High Street banks will take exactly the same approach. And to be honest, they won't give two hoots because the number of people who actually leave will not bother them in the slightest. Take your views back to the 1970's and stuff them in your mattress with your cash.

A debate about gay cheese is right at my level.

I suppose if the Cheddar's wrapper was extra fancy it would be like Drag Cheese...
