    Personally, I consider the term sexuality a misnomer. I feel it is very much more about emotional feelings rather than sex. There are people who have sex with people of their own gender but still consider themselves heterosexual.
    I see. It's an interesting point. I would probably look more at attraction.

    The funny thing is I can't remember why I like Reading. I've never been to the uni itself, but for some reason I look upon it favourably.
    Well, fair enough. You're welcome to visit

    Guys, got a question - How do you pronounce Qatar?

    I have been watching BBC news and all the journalists pronounce it cata (as in the first two syllables of catapult). How do you pronounce it?

    How are we all this evening?
    Very well, what about you good sir?

    Why don't you think it should exist Tea? What's wrong with equality? :rolleyes: I thought you were an egalitarian.
    I love a bit of equality but Labour and the equalities office can hardly be proud of anything to do with equality. Genuine equality is the result of cultural change as well as legal, and I don't believe Labour achieved either. It would appear they favoured some over others and culturally speaking we still aren't equal. So an utter failure in my view.

    It also fits in nicely with my theory of Direct Harpersonisation - in other words, take a good idea and ruin it by including Harriet Harperson. As part of "improving equality" in Britain we have quotas, recruitment drives only available to certain ethnicities and the nonsensical situation of having to report the ethnic make up of a department or business or whatever - it's a load of crap.

    That's what I was getting at. There are men out there who have sex with men because of physical reasons, but they're not gay or bi because they don't feel any attraction, any emotional links to this person of the same sex.
    Sorry, I was unclear. I was talking about physical attraction, not emotional affection. I see myself as bisexual because I go PHWOOAAR when I see a hot woman or man.

    Exactly - It has a ****ing r in it. I don't get why journalists are ignoring the r. Ka~Tar

    No.

    It's a Qaf at the start, therefore has the 'h' at the back of the throat with the 'k' sound.

    It's not pronounces ca-ta

    To use a similar word from the region: Qat - pronounced cat. Just add ar on it

    It's not pronounced cat. It's pronounced khat. My best friend does Arabic at uni, so I get infiltrated with his anal pronunciation. :p:

    I know that, I'm not arguing about the r.

    I was talking about Qat - and you keep missing out the 'h' sound.

    According to Wikipedia, it's pronounced "ka:tar".

    Anglicise it - the BBC managed to pronounce the beginning bit cat, but they ignore the r. The r is quite clearly present!
