Why is it that every time I search for running gear on eBay - be it split shorts or Ron Hill vests, does it always say GAY in the title as if running gear is some kind of fetish get-up for queer men?

I just don't get it.

Queer?  Who are you, Arthur Atkinson?

And... WTF are you going on about?

I take it if you are asking for split shorts then you aren't putting in running and the split is at the back of the shorts not the sides

Phillis - Type either 'split shorts' or 'Ron Hill vest' into eBay and it'll come back with a list of items, some of which have titles like 'RUNNING SPLIT SHORTS/GAY' or 'Ron Hill Vest (GAY)'

I'll save you the search - click me and me

It's bizarre.

I think it is just an unfortunate product code.

It could be running gear for queer ladies.
Never knew you into that sort of thing, D2D.

How are those items gay?

I didn't realise Ron Hill now put his good name to vests specifically made for gay people...

Ian - I have a new job. You know this. I'm not going to apologise for the fact that I'm still being paid by my old company to sit here and do bugger all.

Right, I'm off running.

Not sure where this is going.

D2D, have you got anything against gay people wearing Ron Hill?
Or in your words, some kind of fetish get-up for queer men?

My husband is gayer than a gay thing.  Should he take up running??

The Reading (gay) Pride festival was held over the weekend. I ran past the venue in my Ron Hills and didn't get wolf whistled so I think they're safe.

As an aside, the festival is held on Kings Meadow ... which is known locally as Queens Meadow for that weekend.

i once saw an adidas track top i liked on ebay and it said in the listing to email for more pics, so i did, the guy emailed me back numerous shots of him wearing the jacket.....oh yeah and nothing else

decided against buying it, especially after i saw what he had been putting in the pockets
