  •  Read a great definition of homophobia (3+ / 0-)

    on Twitter once:

    The fear that a gay man will treat you the way you treat women, and that a lesbian will treat your woman better than you do.
    We heard all these same arguments when DADT was being repealed, and guess what? Our military is doing just fine.

    Folks like Wads Davis, Dave Kopay and others didn't just decide, "Hey, I'm gay now" the day after they retired from football. There've always been gay players, and there are likely other gay players -- just that Michael Sam doesn't want to have to adopt protective covering over that part of his life. He wants to be able to have a picture of his husband or boyfriend in his locker. He wants to be able to bring a partner to team events. Maybe he'll even want a teammate to be the best man at his wedding someday. You can't do that when you're locked in a closet.

    There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut

      It was awful for the Gay people and for those accused of being gay as well.

      It's just another system of bullying, for bad people to project their bad qualities on scapegoats.
