I play in argentina in the buenos aires rugby union and things are very quiet about gays. Im sure there must be a certain ammount of gay men playing but no one is out (I include myself). And for those who people know about (but havent said anything publicly), its all very hidden and no one talks about it.
I think there s a huge ammount of ignorance than homophobia here. I have teammates that still have the image of gay men being only feminin and hairstylists or even men that are scared of the sport because of its aggresiveness. However, things are starting to change now, specially because argentina has become more open about gay issues in the last couple of years.
Also Rugby in argentina rugby is a very elitist sport, most people that play are middle high and high social class so, it still remains in a small circle of people, therefore making it easier for everyone to know eachother. So I think it makes it harder for people to come out.
In my personal experience, I havent had any problems or heard anything very deeply homophobic but there is time to time a comment like "dont be a sissy" but its not harmfull. Anyway, I dont think Im the best example since no one knows about me. But, to be honest, I am a bit affraid of how people would react if I said anything publicly but at the end of the day, its a sport and we are there to play. I know that some teammates wouldnt have a problem because they know me, but dont know about the others.
