    Brandon McCarthy stands up against a silly and, some would say, antigay practice.

    "They put two guys on the 'Kiss Cam' tonight. What hilarity!! (by hilarity I mean offensive homophobia). Enough with this stupid trend." - Brandon McCarthy tweet

    Good for him. I agree, this whole "queers are funny" shit has gotten really old. It also speaks to the intelligence level of fanatical sports fans.

    I saw that too, I thought it was awesome of him to make a stand on it. Especially since there is still that whole jocks vs queers stigma in schools, for a pro-athlete to take a stand against homophobia is cool.

    ^^^I agree with both of you above.^^^
    It's great to see a straight ally say something supportive, especially when he wasn't even asked to do it. All the effort we put into condemning those celebrities, athletics, politicians, and public figures that say something anti-gay or homophobic, we should take the time to commend those that say and do the right thing.
