    He is a great guy, he has some really deep, intelligent discussions with people on Twitter (well, as much as you can at 140 characters at a time!). He's tweeted back at me a few times, making my heart beat faster! Lol.

    Aside from the slurs sometimes dropped on the microphone or camera I never hear much about homophobia in major sports. I assume most of it is behind the scenes. Torment from team mates or coaches and team owners passing over someone because he is openly gay. The sort of stuff that rarely goes public.

    That kind of homophobia is tough to fight. It requires we the general public to also play an active role and being attentive for cases of abuse and reacting with our wallets. If the coach of (insert team) is found to have dropped a slur or passed on a player pick over gay sex then fans of that team need to stand up, be heard, then refuse to give that team any money.

    I cannot imagine a more effective manner in which to end homophobia in sports than for a straight man to pose nude.

    The day professional sports ends homophobia is the day professional sports gets outed for what it really is...an excuse to grope and grapple with really hot guys and get paid for it, without it being classified as gay porn.

    Your profile says you're "beefy" so you probably wouldn't understand. This is something exclusive to hot ripped DL guys. icon_cool.gif
