Sad news, doesn't sound 'serious', but it seems he still can't adjust to 'normal' life ...

Paul Gascoigne charged with sex assault on Durham train

Football legend Paul Gascoigne has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman on a train from York to Durham. The former England midfielder was arrested at Durham station on 20 August. British Transport Police said the 51-year-old has now been charged with one count of sexual assault by touching and will appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates' Court on 11 December.

Mr Gascoigne shot to international fame during the 1990 World Cup. After leaving his hometown club Newcastle United in 1988, he enjoyed success at Tottenham Hotspur, Lazio and Rangers.

He has had a well-documented struggle with alcoholism in the past.

A spokeswoman for British Transport Police said Mr Gascoigne, of Leicester, was "charged via postal requisition with one count of sexual assault by touching, contrary to Section 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003. The charge relates to an incident on board a train on 20 August this year," she added.

If you are a boy? Yes.

so , just to be clear,you believe that a sexual assault on a boy or man (by a man) is worse than a sexual assault on a girl or woman (by a man) ?

I genuinely had not thought that anybody would think that

No assault is acceptable. But sexual congress between a man and a woman is at least natural, same sex sexual congress is a perversion that nowadays is deemed OK. How such perversion has managed to seize the moral high ground is a mystery to me but somehow it has come about. I can see that we will never agree ; put my thoughts down to being an old fart that is still living in a world long gone by.

IMO, same sex relationships are as natural as opposite sex relationships, if two people love each other hey ho

perversion is abused in all types of relationships
