I am so happy to see such an influential group make such a strong bold move. I just hope this story gets lots of press.

The backlash is definitely getting noticed.

The dark flipside is that they emplace the protection policies officially and with fanfare, then just nor sign or renew contracts of gay players. Plausible deniability: "See we're supportive of all our gay players. Just look at these policies. We just don't have any gay players right now."

Is there ANY gay Topix conversation you are NOT ogling and commenting on? I don't understand, you gobble down as many gay subjects as you can find, then boo hoo how disgusted you are at the stories. Why do you DO that to yourself? If you are so repelled, why do you keep coming back and back and back?

you get to the new ones faster than a speeding bullet. What do you GET out of it? Why are you here?

I'm embarrassed to admit that had not occurred to me. Yes I can see now how well this would be able to occur.

It's the same as the so called "poverty level". Makes it very easy to say 'look at all these programs and what a wonderful job we're doing'. Then they turn around and cut funding because it's such a drain on the 'middle class'(they NEVER say because it's such a drain on the working class because that draws attention how little they are helping the working class.). I'm keeping "plausible deniability" in mid more now.

Big red heart and life preserver. BTW I can't see the vote icons now, just numbers. And no label pop up either anymore.. Another 'upgrade' glitch?
