Thought For The Day (1959): James Bond

Bond came to the conclusion that Tilly Masterton was one of those girls whose hormones had got mixed up. He knew the type well and thought they and their male counterparts were a direct consequence of giving votes to women and 'sex equality’.

From Goldfinger by Ian Fleming, quoted in The Telegraph.

It has been announced that James Bond is getting an 'outspoken gay friend' (Sassy GBF?) in the new post Fleming novel, Trigger Mortis.

Woo!

PS 'Chuck Wendig, author of the new Star Wars novel Aftermath, has told fans who have objected to his inclusion of a gay character that “You’re not the good guys ... You’re the shitty, oppressive, totalitarian Empire.” And added: “If you can imagine a world where Luke Skywalker would be irritated that there were gay people around him, you completely missed the point of Star Wars”.
