I think the underlying theme here is the clip was weird and downright stupid and what the teams were afraid would happen. It was a production and it was silly. That's not really debatable. Problem is if u exercise ur right of free speech u will be bashed by the activists saying the only reason u have that opinion is ur a homophobe. Perhaos we didn't care for it because it was STUPID. It would have been stupid if wilt Chamberlain and would have done it and I'm pretty sure he was heterosexual.

No, because a heterosexual player being drafted is not historical.

Why is a homosexual being drafted historical? I thought we should treat everyone the same? Isn't that the whole mantra? Let's treat him like he was just like everyone else and his personal life should be separate from his football. That's what I felt. But obviuolsy that whole line is used when convenient and is a double standard. I supported this dude the whole time saying who cares who he bangs. But today was silly and these responses bashing people calling it what was homophobic is irritating me.

I just don't get why this "discussion" gets so overcomplicated.

"Dad, why are those two boys kissing?"

"Oh, some boys like other boys"

"Oh cool, can I have a juice box?"

Not only do you not have any kids but your probably still a virgin too.

This is true, I am 19 hahaah but my Mom is gay and when she told me I was 10.. Didn't give a **** as long as she was happy.

That's different. You love your mom no matter what. I'm a parent and I want my son to be understanding of homosexuality as it is part of life but its something he's never seen or experienced and frankly at his age, he doesn't need to comprehend it now. If he did ask about it, I would tell him the truth and ask him what he thinks of it. Sometimes kids get interested in stuff and you have to answer questions about it for months, etc, they start giving you different scenarios, they see two guy friends of yours hanging out and start asking you if they are gay. etc. It's not that I have a problem with it, it's just easier to explain when they have developed a bit further. Like teens.

Read my posts in this thread, they really aren't too offensive or immature.

By the way, it's you're*. Clearly you don't have any kids, otherwise they could've taught you that after their first day of school.

The thinly veiled homophobic posts here are disgusting! Get a clue guys, the reason for the congrats... whether he makes the team or not... are about difference and acceptance. If not for Jackie Robinson, would there be African Americans in major league sports?
