Gays in the NFL. How Do You Really Feel?
 
Today San Francisco 49ers Chris Culver said, "gays aren't welcome" in the locker room. Obviously in today's culture of PC, homosexuality and equality is still a very sensitive issue. But homosexuals in sports remains one of the last cultural barriers and is very much taboo.

Now I think discrimination of any sort is reprehensible, gays included. But I found myself being somewhat sympathetic to Culver's comments, while disagreeing with his view on gays. There's something so barbaric about the sport that I almost expect our other sensibilities to end where the sport begins. I don't expect football players on the gridiron to behave like we do in society. When I'm watching football, I've temporarily suspended most of what I believe to be decent and humane.

I guess to put it more plainly. If a team or a player don't have a problem with homosexuals, fine. Neither do I. If they do and don't want gay players on the team, I'm inclined to say I don't see a problem with that either.

Am I wrong? Where do you stand?

Well in todays world your totally wrong. They have as much right to play football as they do to being a moderator of a football forum.

I didn't ask about today's world. I made it clear, I don't stand by discrimination. But I'm having a tough time reconciling that with the culture of the NFL.

I asked how do you feel? And should we flip out because Culver said what he said.

When you bring this subject up down here in the Lone Star state everyone immediately starts to defend Troy Aikman for some strange reason. :nono::boxing::stop:

Seems like your sterotyping gays as weak and not as a tougher football player type of person. Personally I don't care if any of the players on the Skins was gay but I could understand a player having issue with gays in the locker room. They all ready let women in not sure if it would even be a big deal among players.

I support it whole heartedly, but I guess I'm kind of biased.

People seem to think of gays as these soft, wimpy men. And granted, some gays are softer than others, but I've watched a gay guy beat down someone who called him a fag all on his own. None of that sissy fighting stereotype, he beat that's guy's ass fair and square.

Culver has a right to his opinion and feelings and voicing them. But I doubt that's going to stop gays for too much longer.

I'm willing to bet Chris Culliver is a self hating homosexual.

It shouldn't be a huge deal, gays in the locker room. As someone attracted to men and women, its not like I can't control myself around straight women.

Seriously. We don't want them.

I'm assuming it's the same way for gay guys, just because there's some straight dude around you, it's not like you're going to try to play grab ass.

Really. Not even close.

p.s. I'm not bitching at your post. lol I'm really agreeing. :P

I think that jackass needs to be fined and suspended. Hell, I would think long and hard about even cutting him before the Super Bowl. No way, no how would I tolerate any type of hate in regards to a persons race or sexuality. I hate to tell this dumbass something, but he lives in San Fransisco. Last time I checked, it was a huge community for the LBGT.


In fact, I would either suspend him for the Super Bowl of flat out cut him. It's going to be a shame to see the organization merely slap his hand.(if they do anything)

I could care less if someone is gay or straight. I don't need to hear about it either way.
