Among those who sent messages of support was Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin, who announced he was gay in 2010.


It would be Ricky Martin who hit him up. Prolly trying to hook up.

I thought people coming out as gay stopped being newsworthy...

Are you gay there friend?

But a boxer?

We're not talking an actor, were talking about a boxer.

I'm not gay, but someone clearly doesn't like gays :lol . Who gives a shit? I'm sure most people have never heard of this guy and finding out he is gay will not affect their lives in the slightest.

Well, I don't have a problem with gay people. As Long as they don't hit on me, I'm good.

I just thought in a sport like boxing, coming out will affect his career.

Why? If he is good enough I'd be shocked if he didn't keep getting fights. I can't imagine there would be people who wouldn't want to watch a boxer just because he is gay.

I'm certain that this won't sit well with future opponents who lose fights to him.

Im not saying its going to happen.. but there are, a lot. There are a lot of Asian and Hispanic older folks that Ive heard tend to feel that way. Although most are older.

It is fairly common now, maybe not as much with athletes but celebrities and what not, but there are still a good amount of gay athletes.

Like? Athletes it seems tend to come out after they've retired so they don't have to go through the controversy while they're still on the playing field.

23 gay athletes in the olympics

I don't know, I guess it's not too common, but it seems to me it shouldn't be a big deal.

:rolleyes:

yea, b/c all gay dudes are sex fiends who want to bang your sweet ass.

sorry but you do have an issue with gay people.

if you were any kind of secure and a gay person hit on you all you would have to say is "sorry, man, I'm straight" and its over.

Instead you indicate you would get all pissed off if a person thought you were worth banging which means you are either gay and hate yourself or are nothing but a secret bigot.
