anything that someone else doesn't agree with, we have become a nation of tiptoe round every subject that may or may not offend some or other members of society, utterly pathetic.

    and yet another thread on the subject...

    You have a right to be offensive (or irritating, or boring, or wrong, or whatever...)

    People have a right to be offended (or irritated, or bored, or pedantic, or whatever...).

    Even if you aren't any of the above, the forum moderators have a right to remove (or edit, or lock, or whatever) any post or thread as they see fit.

    It's really not complicated.

    Any chance we can avoid a third thread on the subject?
    That sounds like a classic case of premature extrapolation.

    If I even had an inkling of what you've both discussing, I might have an opinion. Until then, I'll apologise if I have caused offence to anyone. :)

    I like country file, but not when they have to be political correct and bring 'coming out of the closet' farmer part of the series, do we really need it?

    There is no right not to be offended.

    However, you can choose who you want to hear (or read).

    I'm watching 'country file' not a programme I am expecting to debate 'gay' issues, just animals and farming, do we really need to bring human sexuality in every opportunity in tv, surely Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Eastenders are doing all that for us, its rammed down our throats on a daily basis zzzzzzzzzz

    You might not be particularly interested but a story about a gay farmer isn't offensive. Or if it is, you're very easily offended and probably need to get out more.
    Is it also too PC to talk about the impact of different factors on mental health in rural communities which was the main point of the story?
    The clue is in the programme title.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
