    Well despite the dictionary definition I don't think "homophobia" is generally used to describe the fear of gays. It's more of a catch all term for the dislike of them. But if you'd prefer to be called a "bigot" I'm happy to oblige.

    Let me ask straights and gays a question.....who gives a good God Damn what you do in the bedroom? Insofar as benfits and financial matters are concerned, i understand and support the desire for equality in relationships. But as far as every night muff diving or **** snorkling go.....what makes you think what you eat makes you special?

    Just ponder that for a moment.......

    As someone who works with a large number of gay men, I can vouch for the major contributions they give to society. Its because of their keen eye for throw pillows and color schemes that has made my condo look absolutely fabulous. Huzzah to them

    This ayenbajoyh (sp?) guy is really starting to get on my nerves. I'm cool with the gay rights thing, but to insinuate that the reason you were cut was because you were outspoken, crosses the line. Maybe it's because you are a 36 year old, 3rd string linebacker.

    Ayanbadejo attempted to squelch this story by saying on Twitter that he was misquoted in the Newsday article:

    Dick Cass and the @ravens had my back all year. Why would I say I was cut cuz my views? Makes no sense.

    I hate it when people use the "i was misquoted" line, but at least he's admitting he wasnt cut because of his views...albeit after he dug himself in a hole.

    This reminds me of the similar issue the Boy Scouts are facing. Most people involved in Scouts don't care about any adult leader's sexuality until they bring it up - because it's not appropriate to bring it up. If a heterosexual constantly spoke about his sexuality he'd be asked not to come back.
    Twitches already touched upon it, but Herny Rollins also recently made some similar very good points:

    10:03-13:07


    Straight people don't have to 'come out'. Straight athletes don't have to hide their relationship from the media. They don't have to worry about being photographed holding hands with their boyfriend like what Magic Johnson's son just had to recently go through. Anyone who thinks these people should continue living their life in secrecy & shame because some small-minded old guys & religious zealots have a problem with it just don't get it, & history will show that these people just didn't get it.

    Gay people don't HAVE to hide either! Most people don't give a crap. Who cares what small-minded guys and religious zealots think? Do you?

    The ideal situation is that when/if these guys come out the media doesn't carry the story because your sexuality shouldn't news. Telling us that one guy is gay is just a ridiculous as telling us another guy is straight.

    Hiding something is not a good way to get it accepted by society.

    Then obviously you wouldn't begrudge any player who decided to come out. After all any media they receive from it would be the media's fault & not the player's, right? See, I hardly think not wanting to live your life in secrecy is equal to an insidious, premeditated plot for media attention.

    Also I have to think you're being supremely disingenuous with your boyscout example. You honestly expect me to believe that the only problem you'd have with gay boy-scout masters is that they'd talk about it? Let's be real. You'd have no problem with a boy-scout master bringing his wife along for the camping trip, but I highly doubt you'd be okay with a boy-scout master bringing along his husband for the camping trip.

    As long as they don't talk about it, right? See, in reality it's not just about them discussing their sexuality, it's about them hiding it completely.

    It will be interesting to see how many claim they were let go for be gay or how they were not drafted as high as they should of been. this could turn into a true night mare for a team who tries to release a gay player. i can see it now all the protests and rainbow flags.
