Well now. No sooner do I issue a post trying to defend (explain? excuse?…) our policy of keeping our gay-ness to ourselves and trying to blend in (Dull and Duller – Blending In) than the one organisation you might think wanted to keep its head down in such matters goes all ‘Gay Pride’ on me!
Thanks to a friend in UK for pointing this out. That’s the ‘doughnut’ (correct English spelling there!!) – the UK spook’s HQ in Cheltenham, with close ties to US’s NSA and other ‘darker’ organisations… the sort of organisation where a few years back, evidence of homosexuality was seen as a possibility of blackmail and ‘turning’ their spies to work for the ‘enemy’ (principally Russia – nothing changes…) – the most famous example of course being Alan Turing, who was stripped of his security clearance and later killed himself.
Well, at the weekend, for ‘International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia’, they only went and lit up the place in ‘pride; rainbow colours!
That’s Turing in the inset. Apparently they now encourage LGBT applications and have a support group for such staff members, run by the straight employees. Which I can only commend, of course, but it is an amazing volte face (Dave loves quoting other languages, so that’s for him).
So, for once, I don’t ‘rest my case’ – I just give up! Positive discrimination for LGBT is obviously the flavour of the month.
Let’s return to our usual fitness and acrobatic theme. Maybe I can at least get that right…
This position is just about as difficult as it gets:
…a lot of work on the shoulders and chest is needed…
‘Magic mushrooms’ might help…
…well, not really!…
A good dose of these might be better:
…that’s weights, not veins… a well-equipped boy’s bedroom next:
…and put in the work!
…sweat! The measure of success:
And after the workout: relax with a good book!
