Default Re: Jason Collins comes out, reveals he is gay

Frankly given the amount of protesting and over the top machismo being expressed in this thread, it makes me wonder why are some of you so uncomfortable?


The importance of this is the fact that we are now talking about it. This is a real issue for us in this country and there is still a lot of stereotypes and confusion concerning this.



And to be honest I think some men in general have issues with this and their own sexuality.

So again, why the doubke standard? If the argument is that homosexuality is normal and thus shouldnt be looked at as degrading, then why stop there? A womens menstrual cycle is just as natural. Why promote one over the other? Are you prejudiced against women?

I think we may have learned more about ISH today than Jason Collins.

And secondly, A man is a man. I know how we think. Put me in a womans locker room and I will be peeking at everything, either to be like

bottom line is, im gunna look. Im either gunna be impressed or turned off... but im gunna look. So no, give them their own locker room. call it the f@gg room.

?? just what the hell are you talking about??
Our bodies are different, it has it's own needs and requires it's own space, that's why men and women are separated! What's so hard to understand about this?

Sexual orientation is not promoted over anything.. it was a nonfactor, because anatomy was the reason for male/female bathroom division.

And to be honest I think some men in general have issues with this and their own sexuality.

People are just afraid of change. They are afraid of the unknown. They've grown up all of their lives thinking homosexuality is wrong because some god tells them so or their parents nail it into their skulls.

Some detractors say this is not like the Civil Rights movement but in concept it is. A certain group of people are being discriminated against for who they are and that is not ok. Just because it used to be ok does not mean it should be ok going forward. It used to be ok to own slaves. It used to be ok to discriminate against women and colored folk. Well guess what folks, it's not ok to discriminate against homosexuals. They've done nothing wrong. They didn't kill, rape, or threaten anyone. Stop living in the 20th century.

there are some childish homophobic comments in here

and there are some ignorant comments made by people in an effort to not look homophobic


those who think showering isn't no big deal or a complete non-issue are just fooling themselves..."just because he is gay doesn't mean he wants to fck me"...yeah try saying that in a female locker room. Straight men think about sex 24/7 and will fck anything that moves so you can't get upset for straight men assuming that he is just like us and also thinks about sex non-stop...

no one is going to be laughing it up playing grab ass in the shower with him...it is going to awkward and quiet, and I am sure he will be out-casted to some degree in the same fashion that the first black players were.

That's very true, and I'm sure gay players are well aware of that.

Lol, but we wear clothes right? Both men and women. We need to clean ourselves. Again both men and women. Both men and women urinate and have bowel movements.

Youre the one saying its not about sex. Its no big deal. Then ok.

Gay men go after other gay men. If they sense a man is straight they will not try to f*ck them.

You should try conversing with a few gay men. You'd be surprised to know that they actually don't think like straight men very much at all.

You're just shifting the argument into something ridiculous at this point.
