Re: Gays in the NFL. How Do You Really Feel?

Holy Crap. This thread started off as a kid lighting off a firecracker, and turned into a national forest being burnt down. Damn.

Well first, I honestly don't care about the whole gay rights talk. Not saying I don't like gays, saying that I don't care one way or another if gays can get married or whatever. It doesn't affect me nor my immediate family.

Second, I'm glad this topic came up, I was thinking about making a similar thread when the Te'o story came up. Lets just play the what if game here. So assuming Te'o is gay(and he becomes the first known NFL gay player), how could you see him in an NFL locker room with 52+ other guys getting showered and dressed etc. I would find it pretty hard to believe that a guy like Terrell Suggs or Ed Reed or Pollard for this case would be ok with a guy in the locker room. Those are some guys that I think would be yelling at him for looking their way and telling coaches and GMs "Why is this gay guy on our team?" So right there, he could be a different kind of locker room distraction. Add to that the amount of crap that the gay player would receive when he makes a tackle below the waste and above the knees with players from the other team making fun of that player. Then look at it in the fans perspective of fans of that team getting crap from fans from other teams saying negative derogatory comments about your gay player. Sure there are some players in the league who are fine with gays and gay marriage (and some that are secretly gay), but just know that the negative voices are heard loudest.

Third, I understand completely what Culliver was trying to say, but he worded it wrong, now getting himself into trouble, by putting his team in a negative spot light (especially with his own citys community) right before the super bowl.

Fourth, Smoot, I've always wanted to know if you knew some gay rumored NFL players (even past--like someone said Strahan the other day; I've heard about Ovie Mughelli and I personally thought that Shaun Alexander, Jeff Garcia and John Runyan were gay) You just mentioned that we have had the most gay people on our team. Who would that be?

This is literally the samw argument used by whites against blacks during the civil rights movement and even now.
No, it is you who are brainwashed. strait is not advertised, it's normal way of life. But like I said, times are changing, and dont involve race in this because its completely a seperate issue. Im a man and I love black women and Im white, nothing wrong with that. Now If I loved Black men, there would be a big difference...

Re: Gays in the NFL. How Do You Really Feel?

Here is my 2 cents....

I a fairly liberal guy and I have proven that in the near decade I have been on here. I also worked in the hospitality industry for decade as well. Seen, worked with, friends with and even my mentor at work was gay. No problems I don't care. 99% of them really nice guy's.

Here is my problem with them and it is in the locker room which warrants the problem that may be in the NFL as well. I understand D-raves point of view but I speaking of homosexual males and males are very visual. I have heard and been in conversations with gay males and they talk about guy's cocks they see at the gym. It was a daily conversation for them just like it is a daily conversation with my buddies to talk about boobs.

I got zero problem with any gays or what they do I just feel uncomfortable with them in the same room with me naked (locker room). Just like I am sure a female would be uncomfortable with males in their locker room leering at them. And no I am not short sighted enough to think every gay guy wants my cock.

With that said I don't think they should not have a parade, get married, be happy, etc...I just simple find it uncomfortable having them in a locker room setting.

I'll never understand the hang up some people have over what other consenting adults do in the bedroom. Such a waste of time.

"it's normal way of life"?? It is the most common and, thus, prevalent in advertising, pop culture, literature and other media. Just because something is uncommon, does not mean it isn't "normal". You and a substantial number of individuals consider it abnormal for any number of a myriad of reasons. Personally, I find nothing abnormal about homosexual relationships.

Further, from basic human physiology, there is nothing abnormal about it. Some folks are vegitarians, some aren't. Each satisfies a particular physiological appetite (hunger) differently. Neither is "abnormal". Most guys satisfy their physiological appetite for sex with women, some with men and some with either.

I also have never been uncomfortable around gay men in the locker room. The concept that guys are checking you out to me has always been a big "so what". I did theater in both college and later in community theater settings. Back in the day (and I assume it is true still), the gay/straight ratio was practically the reverse of the rest of society. It was pretty much the assumption, "oh, your a guy in theater you must be gay." Just like in the straight population - the vast majority of the guys were cool if you made it clear you didn't play on their team. Of course, some were real jerks. It never bothered me as long as they didn't cross the line. Ultimately, however, a douche is a douche is a douche whether they are hitting on men or women.

I get, but shake my head at, people uncomfortable around gays in a locker room.

Yeah at the end of the day it really is that simple.

What's so complicated about it?

Live and let live. Worry more about yourself and less about what everyone else is doing.

Well, to play devil's advocate, the issue isn't what they are doing in the bedroom, but, rather, what they might be doing and <gasp> thinking in the locker room.

Hey 44, they want you man ... they really, really want you. Desparetely.

Seriously, if a gay wants to check you out, he doesn't need a locker room to do it.
