    Apparently, like mine, his social concern relates to the fact that: 'there is not enough research on the impact having gay parents has on children'

    The establishment is pushing the religion of 'progressive' liberalism & political correctness vs. doing this to those who follow the established church

    That's kind of cool but I'm quite surprised that Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland are below us

    Haven't there been quite a few studies done already and the results show there was no difference between those raised by homosexual couples and those raised by heterosexual couples?
    Yup but, whilst somewhat encouraging, unfortunately they're methodologically unsound e.g. self-selecting, narrow, woefully unrepresentative. Personally, I'd much rather a child be adopted e.g. by a loving homosexual female couple who are in a stable, settled relationship, than be raised in care, but regarding other familial environments I am a lot less confident

    I don't think it that gay, really, and am quite proud that we've largely become so tolerant of homosexuals :yy:

    That doesn't literally mean 'gayest', it means least discriminatory towards LGBTs
    Gayest ~ homosexual and/or pro-homosexual and/or happy

    Yes, and I think that is something to be very proud of
    Me too, but once again, are you a pro-homosexual Muslim? :beard:

    Apparently Australia are the 'world's gayest country'
    Well, I guess that figures! :mmm:

    can't find who wins in Europe, though...
    My money's on Sweden :camp:

    "Rainbow Europe Map reflecting the 49 European countries’ legislation and policies that have a direct impact on the enjoyment of human rights by LGBTI people"

    Source: http://www.ilga-europe.org/home/publ...rainbow_europe

    What do people think of this, is the UK really as progressive as this might lead one to believe or is it merely indicative of a liberal/urban political/media elite pushing a pro-gay legislative agenda (whilst a significant proportion of the rest of society remain rather more Putin-esque in their values/outlook)?

    Have people experiences of any of the other countries featured that differ from the indicator given?

    France, Spain, Greece = consistent with what I know of them, and we all know the Irish/Italians are a wee bit 'Vatican' at times, but their ratings still surprised me!
    If the UK'S population is the gayest in Europe- I have not checked any facts behind this, then surely the best idea would to be to get rid of certain areas. Areas such as Brighton or Blackpool where the homosexual demographic is over-represented vastly! In Brighton there are 2554 homosexuals couples living together, this was reported in 2004 and there was a total of 78522 in the UK (about 3.25% of gays live in Brighton). Blackpool is also another gay capital, the thing we need to do is have independance from Brighton and Blackpool and gays will be a lot more sparse

    The 2016 Rainbow Europe map is out

    https://rainbow-europe.org/#8647/0/0

    UK now 3rd with 81%, Malta is officially the most LGBT-friendly country in Europe at 88%. Turkey has declined and Russia is still at 7%, long way to go in some countries, but there's certainly been some progress in many countries like with Ireland voting for same-sex marriage and UK is still one of the most LGBT-friendly countries in Europe which is great :nyan:

    Who'd have thought that a country founded by hardened criminals would become the gayest in the world?
    Perhaps the prison system has a different vibe in North America.. over here, well, that outcome is hardly surprising :teehee:
