    I just don’t find terrible jokes funny. What’s her sexuality and appearance got to do with boxing?

    You know there's plenty of backward thinking ppl here that just spout stupid sh! T.. But they don't see it because they aren't very bright. It does seem its acceptable and even mods join in with it. But There we go, I just skim past all the silly backward thinking bs.

    I usually go with the skimming approach too. Do find the whole “it’s PC gone mad that I can’t make derogatory comments about a boxer being a lesbian or looking like a bloke”. It’s hardly PC gone mad, it’s just not being a moron but rather a decent human being.

    If a joke is funny that’s one thing, but when it’s weak crap from a ‘Staff Member’ it suggests that that individual has some deeper issues.

    It's well documented that people with homophobic attitudes harbor an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex.

    Adams was an amazing pioneer, who as pointed out was disadvantaged with age after turning pro.

    But two Olympic golds is something very, very few people achieve.
