      Sorry this guy felt he had to quit playing soccer when he came out.
      One thing – he said his team-mates were some of his best friends, so what are they saying now that he’s out? Has he heard from them? Have they said: “We’re glad you quit ’cause we don’t want no f@gs on our team.”?

      We live in a culture where people equate being gay with being a girl. Until those old effeminate gay stereotypes are challenged and changed most gay athletes are going to choose to stay closeted. It’s one thing to be a gay florist, quite another being a gay professional athlete.

      @Kieran:
      Very true. People need to realize that gay men and women, just like straight men and women, come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Gender expression is not the same as sexual orientation.
