Neil Francis Knows All About You Gay People And How You’re All Hairdressers
True there are many hair dressers that are in fact homosexual
But who cares!!!???
How about the NFL make it clear that coaches and players using homophobic slurs will be treated the same way as if they used racial slurs? Simple solution.
Can’t the NFL afford shower curtains, maybe even some stalls?
If you played high school football, you showered with a Gay, if you went in the military, you showered with a Gay, if you went to the “y” or any health club, you showered with a Gay, if you lived in a college dorm, fraternity house, you showered with a Gay! Are you afraid they will be attracted to you or are afraid of rejection when they are turned off by you?
If this kid is passed by on the draft because he’s gay I think it would be a simple task to remove the tax exemption from the NFL and make them pony up, just like MLB, NBA and every other major professional sports league.
If jockbunnies don’t know about, and practice boundaries at their age, it’s too late. Bench or fire the 25% who have “qualms” about being around out GLBT players. The straight rookies are not ready for serious life situations!
What is it going to take for people to move past this shower thing. There’s a very good chance all of these men have showered with a gay person before, they just didn’t know it.
Like straight guys don’t check out each other’s dicks in the shower. Please! What are they afraid of, that their dicks will shrivel up and fall off if a fag looks at them?
@Respect4all: Exactly. In high school after gym class when we would take showers would frequently make reference about each other’s dicks and would call someone’s name to get the guy to look and then moon them. Newsflash heteros…just because you are another guy doesn’t mean we want you sexually.
@davidbergs: All the more reason we need a current closeted gay football player to come out and say “You’ve been showering with me for years and nothing ever happened to you so get over yourself.
51 anonymous people said what……
@balehead: Exactly. Let’s see how many of these NFL BIG BRAVE OBJECTORS actually exhibit their “fear of the gay” when they can’t hide behind anonymity.
The ones who seem to have a problem showering with gay people are the same ones who are ignorant of the fact that they have likely been showering with gays for some time – the players just are not out.
To the NFL, go suck eggs.
Army Ranger Pat Tillman who gave up an NFL career to fight fort freedom, liberty and justice for all was NOT a spoiled unpatriotic churls as the majority of professed NFLers.
He earned the Silver Star that most of the crude chicken hawks in NFL lacked the courage to action.
@connor larkin: Thank you, Conner. MUCH truth in your comment!
Well now that will be their problem now won’t it. Who cares if they won’t shower with him. Trust me. They’ll get over it. They are just grandstanding. We need to stop caring about who will do what.
So – 30% are homophobic and possibly already gay?? That’s what that headline screamed to me.
The locker room is not sexual for athletes in any way, even gay ones. My partner plays basketball and the Y with straight people every week and has always been active and in sports. He laughs at people that question that. Not only do ALL men look, but the last thing on the mind of a tired, exhausted player of any sport is sex while he is showering.
