Yet another reason to hate Ryan Tubridy.

Senator David Norris called in to leave message about the gay history of Temple Bar- Ryan read the message – ‘the world would still be waiting for Temple Bar only for the energy of the gay community who started the whole thing off.’ Ryan replies ‘and they’ll take credit for that too (laughs) and why not.’ He finishes the programme.

Can't you just hear that horrible patronising little "and why not"? OH MY GOD I HATE HIM. Why does he have a media career? Seriously, who likes listening to him in all his pompous, pretentious, pseudo-intellectual, patronising glory? He comes across like a slightly stupid person who thinks he's terribly clever, who doesn't actually consume any culture (can you imagine him reading anything? He probably thinks The Pope's Children is hard-hitting sociology) but thinks he's terribly sophisticated. And if I can be forgiven the hyperbole, he sums up everything bad about Irish culture, and RTE in particular. God, I hate him.

Masochism, I suppose!

His homophobia is more apparent by the week, isn't it? I never voluntarily listen to him (for some fantastic and freakish reason - perhaps because we're on top of a hill - all the radios in my house can pick up Radio 4 on FM, so I never have to listen to RTE at all, huzzah) but I sometimes hear him in the car, and almost every time I do he's making a "hilarious" reference to something like Brokeback Mountain and the horror and terribleness of having to watch two hot men getting off with each other. Ugh, he's just sickening.

Re: twerp
this uppity dyke is happy to see that other uppity dykes and non dykes are also experiencing the Tubridy brand of homophobia! Tubridy watch will continue on Maman Poulet!:)

You're a brave woman! I don't think think I could bring myself to listen to him even for the purpose of warning the rest of us about his dreadful deeds. Keep up the good work!
