    [quote:239e010a53]A male toilet block at Queen's University in Belfast has been closed for more than two years over fears it was being used for 'cottaging'.
    Cottaging is a slang term for gay sex in a public toilet or using such a facility to arrange sex elsewhere.
    The university even considered installing CCTV in the toilet block in the basement of its main library.[/quote:239e010a53]

    I wonder how many heterosexual couples have 'rendezvoused' in the library over the years? Why is this not thought to be a problem?

    [quote:1bcba7319f]These include, among other things, an over-supply of toilets within the library building; their poor state of repair; and the university's plans to provide improved toilet facilities within the new Anthony O'Reilly Library (currently under construction).[/quote:1bcba7319f]

    Eh, there is anything but an over-supply of toilets in the main library... and they are ALL in a terrible state. I know they are building a new library, but people still need to go in the meantime!

    I love the illustrative photo of a toilet sign, just in case you didn't know what one looked like:

    well if they're going to start letting gays go to university, what do you expect.

    Everyone else will just have to pish and schit on the floor in the meantime.

    Ah the old student's union bogs where each of the cubicles had a useful fist sized hole, just at head height on the bog, where as if by magic it was not unknown for a full set of tackle to appear with puppy dog eyes.

    Shouldn't you replace "Ah the old student's union bogs" with "Tinpot Operation's current practise space"?

    Do you mean the sexual assaults on campus? In the three years I have been studying at Queens there have been at least two rapes/sexual assaults on campus. A girl was raped near the main library (I think) last year.

    Liam the sight of a man's tackle in the bog's in the blackstaff would almost be welcome compared to some of the horrors I have seen.

    Has anyone noticed in the third floor bogs at blackstaff the massive drawing of the backwards cock?

    That was clearly the work of Mr. Gorry.

    look at the evidence.

    well all the toilets in the library now appear to be closed...hmm

    The corner study cubicles on the top floor of the main library are clearly your best bet.

    is it not common knowledge that copulation between all sexualities goes on in any public toilet.

    :lol:

    The news is on its ass.

    I remember there used to be a place called Chicago Pizzas in Belfast, they had a toilet that said "Elton John" on the door.

    This is exactly what it was built for, it's one big cottage.

    There are even sections on floors 6 and 7 respectively for categories "Homo-erotic Architecture" and "Cottage Industries", these have books with pictures of all the fabulous buildings around the world like the gherkin in London and the Parthenon.

    How do you draw a backwards cock, surely this is a skill possessed only by the giant panda?
  27. avatar George W Best
    It was done in 3D but the idiot what done it put red bits on top of the green bits instead of the other way around so when you put your glasses on the rim of the helmet looked further away than the jap's eye. most disconcerting :(

    Has anyone suggested that they rename the university Queers University now? I bet those wags from Jordanstown have.
    I hate people who go to Jordanstown; the small percentage that actually do go to class are the reason why traffic on the ormeau rd is so bad in the mornings. They should be forced to do their courses by mail if you ask me.

    According to my "detailed" historical analysis of Queen's library tower. I have concluded that its main reason for being build was so hungover mid-Ulster "students" can look out of the 10th floor windows and admire the "big smoke". Today the lifts are closed, no doubt due to some inappropriate homo-erotic act.

    won't the gays just go somewhere else for fun?
    this is just displacing the problem behaviour, more drastic action is required if queens is to maintain its reputation as a god-fearing university...

    I think what this City needs is a sectoral lead body to determine new erotic spaces in which the gays can meet. We need to seek cross-community initiatives the bring together a wide range of views and experiences that will enable us to seek a solution to this problem.

    Surely they must be close to discovering a cure for gayness at this stage?

    I think I'd like to interface with someone in this regard, see if we can't get down to business and maybe thrust something firmly forward in the public domain.
