So what's good for the Goose is not good for the Gander

Hmm - so the gay community demands inclusion and expanded rights for themselves - but seeks to limit straights/others and to restrict their rights.
A federal judge ruled Thursday that a gay softball league can limit the number of heterosexuals on its teams, the Courthouse News Service reports.
The ruling was announced after three bisexual men claimed they were kicked out of the Gay Softball World Series for not being gay enough and filed a lawsuit in Washington state against the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Association.
The three men, playing for a San Francisco softball team, were challenged on their sexuality by a rival team, citing a rule that limits no more than two heterosexuals on a team.
The men claim they were "summoned to a hearing room to answer questions about their sexual interests or attractions," according to the Courthouse News Service.
The men said they were told that "this is the Gay World Series, not the Bisexual World Series."
U.S. District Court Judge John Coughenour struck down the lawsuit.
"Plaintiffs have failed to argue that there is a compelling state interest in allowing heterosexuals to play gay softball," Coughenour wrote, according to the Courthouse News Service.
"It is not the role of the courts to scrutinize the content of an organization's chosen expression."
The judge did rule the association failed to prove it should not be subjected to public-accommodation laws.
A trial date has been set for Aug. 1.

They were stupid to join a gay team if they were not gay. They could have done their duty and sucked everyone on the team off. Since I am not pro-gay, I would have never been stupid enough to put myself if that position to begin with.
And if gays can limit the straights, then there should be straight-only teams.
