Jonathan Ross a homophobe? Oh PURLEASE!

Jonathan Ross Homophobic? Come on? When so much has moved so fast in the UK in terms of LGBT Human Rights aren't we just getting a bit shrill when we cannot laugh at ourselves at all? Ever. Isn't that a sign of weakness?
I had dinner with the very lovely Mr Ross once, in a crowd that, other than him and his brilliant wife Jane, was exclusively made up of gay men.

As a mother of a gay son, who came out when he was 15 and is now 25, I am a strong believer in "don't judge others, unless you want to be judged yourself". This is the first time I have been on this site and I have alot to say. I spend alot of time in Manchester, where my son and his partner live, I love it, I love the vibrance and I love the fact that when I go to what I call "gayville" rather than Canal Street, I
