No, I don't suffer any prejudice really. I make my view on sexuality widely known. My family are totally cool and have always been. I've only had criticism from one numbskull porn 'actor': I don't let it or him bother me. Beyond that, I don't really know of the last time I received any attacks relating to my position on sexuality. People disagree with my view, but I rarely hear from numbskulls of that ilk.
I know Danny D, I know of him doing gay porn, beyond that I know nothing else. At the recent SHAFTAs, Ben Dover made a comment that I believe was directed either at Danny D or possibly myself about people doing gay porn. I was openly critical of Ben and the homophobic remark at the time and I will say it again: Ben Dover is a homophobic cunt.
While I may have a view on human sexuality that many disagree (both many 'homosexuals' and 'heterosexuals'), I always fight against homophobia where and when I can. Disagreeing with the labels we give ourselves does not mean that I cannot fight for the right for anyone to practice a life that they choose and not be judged badly for it.
