There have always been gays in the locker rooms. There are gays everywhere. Bryan Fisher is quite the sensitive little phobe, isn't he?

If I was in the NBA I'd be panicking too. I'd be getting an AIDS test first off. And I'd feel mighty weird knowing that Collins had been checking out my junk in the shower all these years.

Then you're a coward with far too high an opinion of your little nubbins.

What is it they say...if you want to know the true measure of a man's manhood, just ask a gay man, he probably knows better than any straight guy out there?

Guess you're just afraid you wouldn't stand up to the competition.

Your comments only make sense in the case of a person who has engaged in unprotected sex and thinks all the time about how men view his body, all the while denying all of it.

I have to admit the homophobes may have one point that is valid: He is at the end of his career due to age and due to journeyman status and due to his free agent status, and this coming out may provide him with something useful to do in terms of a vocation after his retirement. Perhaps even a lucrative Nike endorsement deal, for example.

He went to Stanford University and appears to be well spoken, so he has probably considered his actions carefully.

In addition to obviously being pro glbt rights and gutsy, of course.

“They’d say,‘No way. I don’t want that. I do not want some guy, a teammate, eyeballing me in the shower and my wife does not want that.’”

This is one of my MOST favorite anti-gay whines!! It's so 4th grade! "Wahh!!! I don't want anyone LOOKING AT ME!! EAUWW!! GROSS!!!"

Have you ever noticed that, most of the time, the guys that get all squeamish and panicky about gay guys looking at them have N-O-T-H-I-N-G to worry about in that regard???

And the hottest straight guys are always the ones that couldn't care less who looks at them or how and just take it all as complimentary??

I used to work with a super hot, really nice straight guy that I actually got butterflies in my stomach when I was around. He finally worked out what was going on and he was so sweet about it. when I finally admitted my crush, he gave me an awesome bear hug and said, "I promise, if anything ever happens between my wife and I, you're first on the list, okay??" Great guy.

Trust me, he wouldn't have been.

And I'm sure if anyone were to ask him, he'd have said, "Newman who? You mean that was a guy??? I thought they were letting women in the men's shower!"

Your little teapot is not the main attraction; sugar

Your mind is what we'd be attracted to (if you have one)
