You have "gay friends" who wouldn't care if you told them that you wouldn't want them on your football team because they would be a "distraction?" Cool story, bro.

yep. A few years back we were all at a football game together (me, some family members, him and his partner) and we got to talking about the marriage issue. He said to me "why would we want to be married?" and I said, hell, I don't know, good point. So yes, I'd have no problem telling him and his partner that I would not feel confortable with a homosexual on the football team because it can be a stumbling block for some of the players, and an all around distraction for the entire team.

Why would it be a distraction? And for the record I am a conservative Christian. I've had a gay boss and worked with two gay men and one gay woman.

Yeah, except they are your "friends." If you told a gay guy that was NOT your friend that you didnt want him around, i doubt he'd take very kindly to it. And if he did, he's more tolerant than you. Don't blame liberals for being accepting, and using it as some excuse for you to be a bigot

Yeah well, how do you think cobra's got aids? It sure wasn't from sneezing on each other.

Well... unless you're showering, wrestling around and laying in piles with your boss and coworkers, it's not really an apples to apples comparison.

So Tombstone just sent me a rep saying I wasn't a Christian. Awesome.

Just answer the question, Tombstone.

Seriously? Your question wasn't rhetorical?

In a profession where they risk their future well-being so noone questions their toughness, you think they'd embrace a gay person in the locker room?

Seriously?

He'd be a distraction because he's gay, that is, he likes guys. I think that even if this didn't bother the other players it would be a media distraction as well. This is all hypothetical and let's now pretend you are an owner or GM, if you want to draft the guy go right ahead.

Really? You think they would immediately consider them "not tough" because they like dudes? Is that what the worry is?

I figured it was the "look at all the naked guys in the locker room" thing.

The troubling thing about Tombstone is I guarantee he thinks he's 100 percent right in this belief without a shred of evidence.

My favorite is "No way! I don't want some dude hitting on me!" Like they assume that just because a guy is gay and you are a man he's definitely attracted to you and is going to try and hump you every day. Just like how all the women who like men are always doing.

The one point I agree with is the media buzz. If someone came out, it would immediately make that player a media craze and they would obviously have a huge gay following and that's not the kind of distraction anyone wants. You would need like 12 players to come out at the same time to mitigate it.

I think he's saying that environment of over-masculinity tends to be pretty unwelcoming to that lifestyle.

A buddy of mine in the Marines turned out to be gay (closeted while we were in) and he said he was suicidal over it. None of us knew, it was just the pressure and that type of joking around, etc.

Coincidentally, a big hairy man-ass actually just popped up in my "timeline" because liked it on instagram.

Wait wait. I saw this movie once. Was there a shirtless plumber who showed up with nothing but a huge pipewrench, volunteering to clean out everyone's pipes?

I love the blame the victim excuse. Because a gay person is who he is, his very presence makes other people uncomfortable and thus the gay person has to do the accommodation on career chose because of bigots.

Sometimes I wish we had a Logan's Run type of event and we could nominate old people with their backwards and last century way of thinking and beliefs and vaporize them to be "renewed"

Has that gone on? I see several people predicting that's how it will play out but nothing negative. I'll go back and read how this all began

Actually he's definitely the one with supporting evidence and it directly refutes your 'I think he NFL is ready for this' argument:

Name an openly gay NFL player.
