Gordon Smart, age 12 1/2

Here's a URL for you...

That last bit, 'Ronaldo defends himself after being criticised for wearing pink hat and flower', who has criticised Ronaldo?

It doesn't say in the article, so I am presuming it is the chap who wrote it, one G. Smart.

And what, exactly is wrong with pink shirts and, tight trunks Ronaldo's also been known to wear, and flowers?

The article doesn't actually level any accusations, so what was Ronaldo defending himself against? being an idiot? Being a show-off? Being camp or being gay?

All the defensive quotes from the footballer and the references to limp wrists and Elton John smack of playground taunts of gayness and pointing and laughing when your mum turned your socks pink in the wash.

The headline of the piece gives it away, though, quoting Ronaldo...
The pink hat with the flower. I don’t see what is wrong with that if you are comfortable with your sexuality

That pretty much says it all. Another article to be proud of Gordon. Re-inforcing the butch macho image men have to live up to while mocking gays at the same time. Nice.

With a playground mentality of the colour pink and flowers and letching over any young female that shows a bit of flesh, is there something you would like to get off your chest, Gordon? Is there a bit of overcompensation going on?

This is no surprise, coming from a newspaper that can decide a cricket ball is gay:

Homophobia is back in business at the Scum it seems.

Well, they have to temporarily ease up on the racism for obvious reasons.

And no surprise either after their made-up story about Boy George and Mr Jade Goody in the prison showers:

You think that's bad?

You should see how they portray Ronaldo on TMZ.
