Daily Mail front page proves how casual homophobia in the media is alive and well in 2016

Straight people kissing at the Olympics is more ‘acceptable’ than two men hugging

Daily Mail front page proves how casual homophobia in the media is alive and well in 2016
Daily Mail tells world what they find ‘acceptable’

When the Daily Mail published an article criticizing two British divers for their ‘intimate hug’ last week, many said it was clearly homophobic. Others disagreed.

But those people are eating their words as the paper has proven how it responds when two men share intimacy to when a man and a woman does it.

On the Mail’s front page today, it shows British cyclists Laura Trott and Jason Kenny kissing after winning golds in their respective events.

The headline was ‘GOLDEN KISS’.

This is a far cry from when two British divers, Jack Laugher and Chris Mears, won a historic gold in the synchronized 3m springboard.

The headline was then: ‘Steady on chaps! Britain’s victorious synchronized divers hug for joy after winning gold – while China’s bronze medalists settle for a manly pat on the back’.

On social media, many pointed out how this shows how casual homophobia is alive and well in 2016.
