Phillip Schofield 'comes out as gay' Watch
And this is coming from a relative (he is my second cousin, but I have never met him).
When I saw him weeping on TV I just wanted to give him a big hug...
And of course it must be torture for his wife and kids as well. It's tough as it is, but for all this to play out in the media spotlight...
I find it funny that any of you feel you have the right to speculate and/or redefine someone's own sexuality? It's precisely none of your business and your speculative opinion on what his sexuality is 'actually' is not relevant.
saw the topic title and thought it was a troll topic at first.
tbh i don't think phillip is gay. one does not get to 57, father two children, have a long and happy marriage and then simply stop being attracted to women and become attracted to men.
more likely he was actually bi, but got influenced by lgbt media ...and has decided he likes men more than women so has decided to declare himself gay
People have been calling in to LBC with their stories and a couple make the point that you cannot claim adultery when the partner has been with someone of the same sex, the victim ends up paying four times as much to get divorced
If people were not homophobic then people would not feel compelled to try to meet society's 'norms'.
People think these types of marriages are a thing of the past but unfortunately they are still around today especially in religious communities where it is very taboo. A simple search of 'convenience marriages' will reveal the lengths some people have to go to in order to live safely and as authentically as possible.
Being against gay people does not remove their existence it simply forces them into situations such as this which homophobes later complain shouldn't have happened.
It is easy to sit here as a gay person and say well it's not fair on his wife etc, which unfortunately it is probably difficult for her. However I have the luxury of living in this time where homophobia is gradually declining.
It must have been incredibly difficult to live as a gay man during the height of the AIDs epidemic so although perhaps not the most ideal situation you can understand why he did what he did.
I don't really see how this changes too much, it is possible to love someone without being sexually attracted to them and he will obviously still love his children.
As for what label he decides to use that is entirely his own business and people would do well to respect that.
sexual fluidity is a thing. and just because someone is sexually fluid, it doesn't mean they made a conscious choice to change their sexuality, it can depend on a variety of externals factors outside of their control.
regardless if he says he is gay, he is gay. he knows him better than we know him.
also its possible he is biromantic homosexual- romantically attracted to both genders but only sexually attracted to only men so maybe he was in love with his wife. of course it's really none of our business, I am trying to show a lot of different types of sexuality exists other than the popular labels: straight, gay, lesbian and bisexual
Some people are making it out to be obvious. Anyway it’s a bit of a non story
As said, I see no point in sneering that I knew, as I didn't. just not surprised. Like if Trump announced he was gay, that would surprise me.
