Sports Magazine Finds Enough Gay Athletes To Fill Entire Cover Story

In the United States, the most talked about issue of Sports Illustrated is almost certainly its annual swimsuit issue. In China, I’m going to venture a guess it was last month’s “Go Gays” cover. An 18-page photo spread featuring gay athletes and sports leagues from around the world? Surely they had room to squeeze in a sidebar about pole fitness!

    Sports Illustrated is a sexist, homophobic magazine as far as I’m concerned. The swimsuit issue is a sop to sleazy straight guys. Sports Illustrated is probably run by liberals as liberals are typically sexist and homophobic.

    @jason: Homophobia and especially sexism are more the conservative’s domain.
