Well, I've slowly changed my views over the years too and become a bit more liberal, so if a player wants to come out as openly black, that's ok with me. (I still haven't come to terms yet with NFL players who are openly Baptist).

I'll never understand homophobie and I particularly don't understand why so many str8 guys think they are so attractive to gay guys. I'd say about 99% of them are NOT !

You got that wrong Foxy. Straight guys don't want to be considered attractive by gay guys. That's what "straight" means.

I have news for you.. When I was 18 I lived for a few years in Puerto Rico.. Right next to the town I lived in there was the biggest air-force base in the world (Ramey Air Force Base). I was rather pretty and, naturally, I had my fill.. I once counted 150 in a six month period and could have had more if I had wanted to.. All nice, clean American boys from all over the US who had their girl friends back home but were lonely.. When so-called straight men are by themselves and know nobody's looking they're a different kettle of fish, believe me.. One of them (Michigan) even wanted me to have a sex change and he would have married me.. He now has a wife and three children but we keep in touch.. That forever opened my eyes as to the true nature of the male animal.. Only the repressed miss out in life.

Indeed. And ... it's no wonder they call it their "junk".

Apparently, you didn't understand the comment you responded to. We know that homophobes like you are AFRAID of another man (and I use that term loosely) being attracted to you. The poster was commenting on how unlikely that would be.

It turns out, straight men are afraid that gay men will find them attractive, but they are even more afraid of discovering that they aren't attractive at all.
