Is Gay Preference Right?


As you all know, gay diver Matthew Mitcham won a gold medal in Beijing this weekend.

While it’s customary to cheer for your home (nation) team, many of you may have found yourselves cheering for Mitcham simply because he’s of the homo persuasion.

This leads us to two questions: One, did you cheer for Mitcham simply because he’s gay? Two, is it fair to prefer someone simply because they’re gay?
