Prolophobia

We took the Bomber and cousins to the Cardiff Blues visit to Swansea to play the Ospreys on New Year's Day.

When the outed Gareth Thomas came on as a replacement in the second half, there was no reaction at all in terms of - um - "gayness" I suppose; no particular booing or cheering or back chat that was at all different to what would greet any other player substitution.

I have decided to neologise "prolophobia" for the chattering classes' condescending attribution of "homophobia" and any number of "anti-social" tendencies to the man and woman in the street; deficiencies which - as we all know - are rampant among ordinary working stiffs but nonexistent in the global dinner party.

So there.
