In response to PatsLifer's comment:
Why feel the need to come out and declare it? I don't understand why folks do this. Russ, can you please explain it to me? What is gained by doing so?
Are you a child, a teenager or an adult? HOw what works?
You're a moron if you need someone to explain to you that society unfortunately puts a gay person or any minority into a specific box, as leverage against that person to discriminate. Just pick the minority group (black, woman, gay, etc) and you'll see a tailored framework of discrimination against that group through history.
Are you Vladimir Putin? bawhah
THis is not difficult to understand for an adult at this point. It's silly that the person then needs to feel like they need live a way that is not how they really want to love or be. It's ridiculous to tell someone how they should feel as a human being.
And, whoever above called it a "preference" is ignorant/a moron. Gay people don't sit back and decide if they prefer to be gay or not. How stupid. Why would you choose to make your life more difficult in a society? People are born gay, they don't just become gay one day. lmao
I knew my sister was gay or might be gay long before she came to terms with it and made it clear she was. She's the same person.
Anyway, I applaud this kid. He has a lot of stones to do that and it will probably help a lot of other college athletes who are also in the same kind of predicament. Missouri is not the best environment to accept a gay athlete, but good for him and his teammates/coaches who see him as a person/teammate and don't discriminate.
That guy has leader written all over him. I don't know much about him as a player, but if he can play, he can play, black, white, gay or straight.
Meanwhile, poor Tebow hides behind the bible.
Look at Russ, the frustrated minority who knows a thing of two about Missouri not being the best environment to accepting a gay guy.
A few tell tell's from his post.
You are not a white American, you cause more problems with racism then you do solutions.
You do not believe in religion
You are not sure how you feel about your sister being gay.
