The Tour

Postby tyreon » 20 Apr 2014, 4:15pm

Am not really a 'road man'...and certainly not a competitor. But over the years have developed an interest in watching the Tdf with the competitor, alpine attacks, drug dramas etc. I like to see the stage winner celebrate his win, and the various stage winners receive their kisses from the lovely ladies at the end of the day. Howsoever, in our non-discriminative and gender equal age, one wherein sexual orientation should not be seen as partisan...is there a place at the finish of the first stage(of the TdF)for the presenting stage winner to be greeted by,say,3/4 good looking young men in tight outfits kissing the stage winners? This would put GB in first place in gender equality and gay-rights issues, centre stage throughout the world.

I am always striving to be politically correct. What do others think?

Just askin'????

Hi,
I you say that gay is a minority group :?:

Then is it correct to show this centre stage :?:

It then becomes the norm..............

Ask the stage winner his preference 8)

Otherwise, the coverage is already full of young men in skin-tight lycra. Should we leave out the only women currently included? :wink:

Hi,
In the last Tour I noticed some winners of stage kissed twice and some Thrice which is the norm :?:
I would'nt bat a eyelid if there were either sex on the stage.
Come to think of it dont the V.I.P.'s (Male mostly) do the cheek kissing too. B Hinault etc.
Seems to depend on country.
