If Tony L was man enough he'd just laugh it off/ ignore it...
This misses the point.

It is a powerful thing for TonyL to be able to accuse Doc of homophobia. When most people hear that, they will not be interested in what has gone before.

Sorry to spoil the party but this is all getting a bit much and there is one fundamental fact missing in all this chatter :-?

I have known Tony for what must be the best part of 15 years, we meet up for Hi Fi stuff fairly regularly, trust me, the man is NOT gay, ( not that that would have any bearing whatsoever on anything if he was)

There are gay people in all walks of life Hi Fi included but TonyL is not one of them :grin:

Homophobia is, unless the dictionary I am using is completely wrong, The "fear of men" as much as it is a "fear of the same". We need a new word to describe a dislike of homosexuals so that we can reclaim both the words "phobia" and "homo" but who cares how we abuse the English (Latin and Greek actually) language as long as we have a word to (mis)describe a deplorable attitude.

Have a look here http://www.dictionary.com/browse/homo and you will go back considerably further than the 1960s.

It bothers me little whether he is gay or not, I tend to agree with you (from what I know of the man) he isn't gay but it's how he's handled the wind up and his dislike of NVA that is his downfall. It's the equipments performance that speak volumes on the Doc's abilities as an audio electronics Engineer. Tony L also clearly demonstrates double standards Andy, is quite bitchy and unable to take criticism.
