Would not want him behind me in a tight corner, he wants to try that on the taliban

• I should stress most comments are positive (and the last one above was me)... 

Update: The Sun ran this story on Tuesday, as I type there are close to 100 comments, nothing really homophobic, a few men say they just don't like any public displays of affection, regardless if they're by straight or gay couples. Most common comment - and general consensus - "Good for them!" 
Good for them.
