High School Basketball Coach Tells Players Hes Gay, Gets Hugs
New York Magazine ^ | June 24,2013

Posted on 06/25/2013 3:24:55 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Your heartwarming story of the day: Anthony Nicodemo, the head coach for the Saunders High School basketball team in Yonkers, started to think about coming out of the closet after Jason Collins announced that he was gay in April. Last month, the 35-year-old went to an LGBT sports conference where he heard Collins speak firsthand. It was then that, despite his apprehensions about the reaction of his players and the risk of losing his position, Nicodemo resolved to finally come out. At a team meeting yesterday, he told a group of past and present players that he was gay. The players "literally embraced him," reports Outsports.

They also embraced him, less literally, on Twitter:

American media is now officially all-gay, all the time.

Nothing else exists except homosexuality. Nothing else matters.

The only thing we should ever think about is sex organs and what people do with them.

Anybody who dares think about anything else is a homophobe.

the risk of losing his position

Are we really supposed to believe that a New York public high school would demote or fire a unionized teacher for habits that are specifically protected in state law?

Give me a break.

Indeed.

Besides, what could possibly go wrong with a young male adult hanging around a bunch of young males in the shower.

Why does such a fact matter?

I can only assume that he’s a crappy or mediocre coach and therefore needs to mask that with the “coming out” nonsense and therefore now he’s cemented his position forever. They can’t fire him.

Otherwise why make it an issue at all. His sexual behavior is something that should have no effect on the basketball program unless he’s gay with underage players.

Either way, it doesn’t make much sense to make something so private into something so public.....except that’s what militant homosexuals do.

Since when is confessing that you have an obsession with poking your private part into somebody else's sewage discharge pipe a cause for celebration?

If I thought swimming in sewage treatment ponds was fun, I think I'd keep it to myself.

I'll bet he got some hugs.Even before he openly revealed his perversion.And some of those hugs might have even been from individuals old enough to legally consent to sexual contact.

Yup. Fudgepackers always come out in events that consists of kids. Schools, gyms, churches. Those are the only chances of them raping and molesting kids.

The three coaches at my junior high school (’66-’69) were so inordinately interested in looking at us that we frequently talked about it. One of them occasionally “inspected” us as we exited the showers. It was a little creepy at the time and now I’d consider it very, very inappropriate.

To the best of my recollection they never said or did anything that suggested availability for sex, but then if you weren’t the target you probably wouldn’t know about it.

I’m going to guess that his going to a LGBT or whatever it is to indicate they’ll do anything that moves pretty much answered any unanswered questions anyone might have had on the subject. Because I guarantee that he noted down the attendance at the conference for his continuing education requirements with the district.

So, gym teacher gay - big surprise.

The parents of these kids can either pull their kids from his presence/school or accept the consequences when one of them gets assaulted.

Shunning needs to make a major comeback in neighborhoods.

I’m there with you. As a retired coach, we’re all hired to be fired if we don’t win. This guy now will pull out the sexual orientation card if they try to fire him.

I always find this odd as well. I think everyone has their odd little kinks and perversions. But a lot of gays seem to have an irresistible urge to announce themselves.

I don’t mean gay people who passively mention a same sex relation passively in natural conversation. There’s a few like that where I work. They didn’t announce themselves (of course, every knew anyway by the way they acted).

But the ones who make a big deal out of coming out... It’s like they just *need* to make an event out of it. It’s important that a big deal be made out of what they do with their privates.

It’s an extension of the Facebook culture I guess. People are obsessed with the idea that everyone should be engrossed with the minutia of their daily lives. News flash, peeps: you’re not that interesting!

It is not heartwarming for a man to receive another man’s penis inside his anus. That is disgusting and nothing to be proud of.

Well they are from NY. They have already been taught to drop the soap by Bloomberg.

After all, we know that every male living in NY is a metrosexual queer. Yes, that is to piss off NY'ers. Fix your problem, because I will not. And the Yankees suck.
