Straight couple claim discrimination at Olympics

How dare these spoilt shits compare their situation to the gay world:

It would be ok if we were gay: Mark

Olympic shooter Russell Mark has suggested 'tons' of gay couples will be rooming together at the Olympic Village, while he and his wife sleep in separate apartments.

According to reports this morning, Russell Mark has been officially informed that he will not be able to room with his partner, Lauryn. "The stupid part of this, which I have argued to them, is that there are tons of gay couples on the Olympic team who will be rooming together, so we are being discriminated against because we are heterosexual," Mark told News Limited.
Earlier this month the double trap champion raised the ire of Olympic chiefs when he said he would not abide to their decision to ban athletes using sedatives such as Temazapan, that he has used during competition for years.
They are a married couple from Australia. They have also been told that if they want to room together then they'll have to rent their own place outside the Olympic village. 

I imagine this story is still evolving and it's early days yet of what sort of reaction people will give it from various quarters. I however find it particularly galling that over something so little they are using the gay minority to make a stupid selfish, self absorbed, spoilt brat of a point. Given that Australia worships it's sporting heroes, particularly those that succeed in the Olympics, you'd think that these fuckin idiots would be setting a better character example to the community.

Lets just have a look shall we at the amazing accommodation they'll be staying in for the 2 weeks of the London Olympics:

During the Olympics that accommodation will house 16,000 athletes and team officials, who Allen is confident will be suitably impressed with the facilities.

“The feedback has been amazing so far both from officials and athletes,” he told Press Association Sport. “The buzz you can feel already.

“They really love the accommodation, they love the areas, they love the Globe [recreation centre] and the dining facility, which is laid out quite differently to other facilities.

“I think it is the best Olympic village there has been because we have put athletes at the centre of it and we’ve listened to the things they want.

“Hopefully the proof will be in the pudding when they’re all here, 16,000 at peak, and we have an amazing time.”

The 2002 Commonwealth Games chairman highlighted the Athletes’ Committee, led by Jonathan Edwards and Tanni Grey-Thompson, as key to ensuring athletes’ needs were planned into the Village.

“They help with the simple things,” Allen added.

“From big issues, like wanting more space to themselves - whether that is balconies, sitting areas or outdoor areas - down to, if you’re a taller athlete, they want the beds to be longer.

“It seems pretty obvious but actually that is really important so that detail.

“Then there is the attention to detail on the type of food they want, when they want it, the ability to grab and go rather than a big meal.

“We’ve listened to that detail and that attention to detail I think is what people are responding to.”

Oh the poor dears. 

I mean what the fuck do they want? A separate apartment all of their own? They're there to compete in the games, not fuck each other senseless. How old are these people, fuckin 16? They're behaving like spoilt teenagers. What a couple of whingers. I wonder how much of my taxpayers money has been invested in their effort to get to the games?

Here is another perspective.

If they were really being discriminated against, they might have a bit of trouble finding a room in London because of their hetro-ness. You know, like these people who couldn't get one becuase they were gay. From Cornwall:
In his ruling, Judge Andrew Rutherford said the hotel had directly discriminated against the couple on the grounds of their sexual orientation and awarded them compensation of £1,800 each.

The judge said the right of the defendants to manifest their religion is not absolute and "can be limited to protect the rights and freedoms of the claimants".

He described the sexual orientation regulations as a "necessary and proportionate intervention by the state to protect the rights of others".

John Wadham, the legal director of the EHRC, said: "The right of an individual to practise their religion and live out their beliefs is one of the most fundamental rights a person can have, but so is the right not to be turned away by a hotel just because you are gay.

Don't fuckin talk to us about discrimination. Try being an HIV+ gay, then they might have some idea. And being from Australia, they wouldn't even be allowed to get fuckin married in the first place. 

Fuck off and shut up you two idiots. Get over yourselves. You are both an embarrassment to our country.
