It is true, I think that gay male couples have a harder time being accepted than gay female couples - I've seen examples of this. Why, I don't know.

Most parents only ask for money towards food and bills I find (since it's not like they were going to get a lodger in to pay extra rent with you not there). 150-200 a month should cover that,...

Not having to engage in 'bubbly' small-talk is a godsend.

Being able to tell that a cousin is very attractive and being attracted to them are two very different things.

I always find the warm weather patterns quite interesting in the UK - September is often just as warm as the first 2 or 3 weeks of June, if not warmer, and October is often warmer than May.

As much as I know this hurts a lot of people on here, I reckon the Tory majority will pretty much be fine through this government.

Well no, not if I don't think that - based on the fact many roles are given on connections, not talent. You may not agree, but there's nothing wrong in hypothesising such a thing.

I think it's quite good. Not great obviously, various parts are simply misjudged and it never really gels together properly.

But I think it's by no means the disaster others do.

Changing it would create confusion, not reduce it.

Bit of an overraction.

She's so terrible in the role and looks very strange with all her work done, she sticks out like a sore thumb compared to all the other actors.
