Another non-story. I mean, i'm glad you're proud of your sexuality, but don't think for one minute you're more special than any of the other thousands of athletes. You don't see straight athletes running around saying "I like vagina!" because, well, no one gives a shit what they like! Do well for your team and you'll have the love of your fans. It's as simple as that.

Same as athletes being "politically active". You have every right to be active politically, but all people care about is how you do as an athlete. If you go around thumping your chest politically it's sort of unnecessary.

More people will come out over the next couple of months, and i'll be busy trying to find fucks to give, because honestly, you're no different in my eyes. Just like blacks are no different than whites, and i'm SURE AS HELL not about to treat homosexuals any different than straights! I may believe in god, but I don't recall god ever giving me the right to judge anyone other than myself!

Anyway. Good for you, Jason.

I'm not trying to instigate a religious debate either bro, but the same can be said about one's religious convictions. My ONLY point is that society picks and chooses whom we are supposed to be tolerant of and whom we may be outspoken against. I'm just saying that I don't subscribe to that and never will. Wallace didn't hurt anyone with his comments and shouldn't have been reprimanded by the Dolphins. Let's face it, they were only concerned about image and negative publicity; they don't give a crap about fairness and human equality.

He does hurt people. The reason gays stay in the closet is fear. That fear is real because the ignorant taliban of any creed is dangerous.

I don't think Gay people choose their gay lifestyle but its not genetic either. If it was then the "gay gene" would have died out long ago as it is not a gene that promotes reproduction.

If you can't get a handle on it - think of it as a fetish. Ox is an ass man, Hawaii like breasts, bayz likes long legs, eb is into eyes, Rex Ryan likes feet and teegre likes short black safeties from Florida. Why? Who knows - and no one will ever figure it out either.

Hey, I gotta question for everyone. Is a guy still gay if he does gay for pay?

How the hell did you know I was an ass man? Have you been tapping into my rotary phone?

The argument that it would die out is a misunderstanding of genetics. It would be true to say that homosexuality isn't the manifestation of the gene that creates an advantage but many genes or combinations of genes have complex and varied manifestations.
