youre incredibly naive if you think this is not a big deal. there has always been a connection between professional sports and homophobic sentiments. This isn't a TV show, you must put it in context. Hollywood might openly accept gay people, professional sports and their fans for the large part do not.

No comparison. You're just trying to make my point invalid.

Just because a person is "white" or "black" doesn't effect if they are sexually attracted to the same sex or opposite sex.

Answer me this question. Why can't a man go into a women's bathroom/locker room?

Jason Collins comes out, reveals he was paid by the opposing teams to be a useless, counterproductive stiff all along.

Joke aside (he really does suck as a player), props to him. It takes major courage to do what he just did.

A man, who likes women, cannot go into a women's bathroom/locker room. That same man doesn't "like" any of the women in that particular bathroom/locker.

Now, A homosexual man, who likes men, is allowed in a men's locker room/bathrom. That man may not like any of those men in that locker room/bathroom.

What is the difference? You guys want to be so "accepting" that's fine. However, you also have to be accepting to everything else. Men in women's locker rooms/bathrooms. Women in men's locker rooms/bathrooms.

You can't have it one way and not the other.

People shouldn't be divided by sexuality. Like some guy above my showed, it's not long since people of different colours couldn't pee next too each other.

PHP Code:
"You guys that want to defend homosexuality are hypocrites at best" - you wrote this.

The fact that we need to defend homosexuality is ridiculous. They're nothing different than anyone else. I seriously don't know what to say to you. You're never gonna accept any arguements of mine since I'm one of those who wan't to "defend homosexuality".

Just simply grow up. People shouldn't be divided if they're gay or not, if they're black or white or if they're a jew or muslim. That sadly is how things are, and ignorant guys like you are the root of the problem.

I didn't set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, I'm happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn't the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, "I'm different." If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I'm raising my hand.
My journey of self-discovery and self-acknowledgement began in my hometown of Los Angeles and has taken me through two state high school championships, the NCAA Final Four and the Elite Eight, and nine playoffs in 12 NBA seasons.

Major respect for having the guts to do that man, hopefully everyone is accepting of it
that took alot of balls

Exactly. Now, why was that ever brought about? Because, men are sexually attracted to women.

Are not homosexually males attracted to men?

As I said, I am not against anyone being homosexual or whatever. My only issue is that they should not be allowed in men's locker rooms/bathrooms. They are sexually attracted to men.

If men can go change in women's locker rooms/bathrooms, then fine. Until then, homosexuals should not be allowed to undress or see other men undressing/bathing, etc.

So, how is it that a "homosexual" can do the same? Should we now how 4 bathrooms/locker rooms? One for heterosexual males, one for heterosexual females, and one for the homosexual counterparts?

See.. once you open pandora's box, you can't close it.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Foster5k again.

If they will refer from signing homosexual athletes then that's something that's gotta be challenged. How homosexual are seen in the athletic world is disgusting really.

Much respect for the guy. I'm sure the coming out thing took a lot of guts and sleepless nights thinking about doing it.

Personally, doesn't change what I think about him one bit. He's still a scrub.

The mind of a hetero man and the mind of a gay man are two different things. You should sit down and have a conversation with a gay man. Or maybe a few. It's not simply cut and paste when it comes to a hetero mind and a homosexual mind.

Audre Lorde article

Some of you guys seriously need to read something. This is a post by a 1) Black, 2) Woman, 3) Lesbian. 3 things which are looked down on by the ruling white, heterosexual man.
The world has to change, and the change aint coming from the government, it's coming from us.
