    Homophobic chanting-I anything acceptable?


    0 Not allowed!
    In light of the discussion regarding our trip to Leicester and the rather unpleasant homophobic abuse received from their 'fans' (I was indeed at the game), I wondered what NSC thought about the different chants that are heard, and whether some, if any, are acceptable. Do you believe any mention of homosexuality at football should be banned? Just the more graphic and demeaning songs? Or are you someone who believes for the most part that it is banter and part of the exchange you'll hear when fans are having a go at each other.
    Here's a list from a report on the subject, all real incidents that took place. There is no particular order-Which do you think are fine within the context of a jokey environment, and which should never be heard?

    'Town full of f*gg*ts.'
    'We can see you holding hands'
    'You're too ugly to be gay!'
    Player rubs his hands up and down several times over his backside whilst standing in front of, but with his back to, Brighton fans.
    'You’re just a town full of b*****s'
    'We always sh*g girls'
    'Palace 5, Brighton 0, Brighton take it up the b*m'
    A father and son pair of Brighton fans were walking away from the ground and the father was asked 'Do you pass him round?'
    'Does your boyfriend know you're here?'
    'Go home you qayers'
    'Up your a*** m’lord, up your a***'
    'Soft Southern poofters'
    Up your a***, up your a***, if you’re not a f****** w***** you’re a gayer'
    Gestures from Blackburn player, alleged to be Colin Kazim-Richards
    'What’s it like to suck a c***'
    'We drink cider, you suck c***'
    'The referee’s a gay boy'
    'Gay and you know you are
    'Do you take it up the a***?'
    'You only sing when you’re b***ing'
    'Have you ever sh*gg*d a girl?'
    And shouts of ‘f*gg*ts’, ‘gay’ and ‘n*nce’ with limp-wristed gestures
    'Your women are ugly, that's why you're all gay'

      I don't think any can be acceptable because none will be sung in isolation.

      None of them are "acceptable". Just as the unbelievable comments I heard from our own Albion fans last night around the signing of Jose Izquerdo along the lines of "Give him a spear and we'll be unbeatable" and "The groundsman are planting trees for his first appearance" were. And this was in ear shot of my 9 year old son.

      Everything on your list is unacceptable.

      If you can write the word in a post, without it automatically turning into an asterix, then it's probably legally ok.

      Can we have a thread on which chants / songs it is acceptable to sing at matches?

      I suppose the parallel would be if you asked the question about race, where i don't think anyone is likely to argue that anything is acceptable.

      Why is it acceptable to insult anyone on the grounds of their rightful and natural sexuality?

      There is another thread detailing a specific incident of abuse at an a at game with subsequent discussion. Having looked further into the issue I thought it would be both interesting and useful to ask how a community of football fans felt about certain chants with varying levels of intensity and severity. I did not cast my opinion about any of the chants listed. And furthermore, I suspect if one posted this on a different forum without the history or link of homophobic chanting, perhaps Sheffield Wednesday, Liverpool, Accrington Stanley-you'd get different answers.
