  1. So sick of hearing about gay rights that are so wrong,not because of moral denial or acceptance,not because of religion,or because some don’t want to imagine their football hero bumping ugly’s and being rump rangers.Not even because other players are worried about meaningful intimate contact.As sure as someone could start a heterosexual rights group,it’s still not equality.Discrimination and rights activists unfortunately with good intent,end up going to far, thereby resulting in supporting segregation unintentionally.

    The status quo for some,can already be a difficult feat to live up to,and may seem unreasonable to some to be expected:”NORMAL”:Functioning or occurring in a natural way,free from physical or emotional disorder,average,standard,relating to or characterized by average intelligence or development,the expected or usual state,form,amount or degree.Football is a team sport not about the individual,like hair hanging out of the helmets to get attention,teamwork and talent on the field,should be the only things that stands out for the players.

    Broadway is a great place for performers that may be looking for attention,even without a team.What HAS been acceptable role model behavior,seeming like the best so far,has been “don’t ask,don’t tell”keeping their private lives to themselves.Why can’t this be enough? Is flaunting gayness a way to get attention and be special?What does any of this have to do with Football?
