Skip to comments.Charles Barkley: In sports, ability to play should outweigh sexual orientation
Posted on 05/17/2011 10:33:21 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Charles Barkley is sick and tired of hearing how the sanctuary of the locker room is not ready for a male athlete in a major team sport to come out to his teammates, how awkward everyone would feel after they heard a teammates say, Im gay.
After all, Barkley has no doubt he played with several gay teammates.

Ew. Even your description disgusts me. Of course things disgust me. Look, in my son’s locker room there is probably someone gay, probably not known because he is 14 and I don’t know of anyone gay on his team, but there could be. Back when you were in school there were gay guys in your locker room. No one knows, and no one is going to screen people out. There are still people “on the down low” like our President, “happily married with kids” but sneaking time with men on the sly. It is impossible to have gay-free locker rooms, and there is a tiny chance any guy will try to touch you in there so just dress and get out.
The gay trolling in restrooms is for other gays. Those “glory holes” where some very sick people are risking HIV to have unprotected anonymous sex are voluntary. They are not out to rape unsuspecting businessmen who wander through. They are looking for other horny gay men. Just ask Senator Larry Craig. He had to keep tapping to try and find someone.
I have actually been in one of these “bath house style” toilets. By sheer accident. In college at UCLA, one night our professor invited us to a small room in Royce Hall to screen a movie we had to see for our class. There was no break, and I really needed to go p. So I remembered where the women’s bathroom was downstairs and raced there so as not to miss much of the film. To my surprise the bathroom had been turned into a men’s room, and late at night in this empty building it was filled with gay men doing their “thing.”. They were surprised to see me in there, shall we say? I ran into an empty stall and used it and got out of there. I had my own agenda and didn’t bother them. But that was weird.
Gay guys “cruising” are not into women, or straight men. You’d have to be at least bi-curious, lol, to get their attention.
I am not sure what your point is by saying Look, and then making the claim of how there are always going to be homosexuals. Are you trying to say that we should accept and deal with it by avoiding them but not try to legislate against homosexual behavior in public?
There has always been every type of perverse or deviant behavior but we legislate against it. Do you think that this should be different?
Charles moral authority matches his golf swing. Both miss terribly and are extremely flawed.
The bathrooms are for all of the public and are not gay only bathrooms so your claim is BS. Children use public restrooms and these people could care less and I am sure take advantage of a child if they get the chance as well. For you to try and make it seem as if it is only a voluntary thing and thus alright and that anyone else could just do their own thing and not be bothered is ludicrous and sickening. Your story is sickening as well being that you accept this behavior and didnt call the police.
The way you seem to continually try to speak on behalf of all homosexuals as if you can is bizarre. Homosexuality is a corruption. It is connected with all other perverse corruptions as is seen among homosexual communities. Homosexuals attack children at a very high rate. They seek to corrupt society and attack traditional values continually. Given tolerance at all it will spread through society like the disease that it is.
If a homosexual teammate becomes a problem, it has to be dealt with. If a professional athlete wants to come out but feels intimidated by doing so....well, too bad. Stay in the closet. Everyone has a choice.
Well said. You will never get a homophile to think otherwise. To them, NAMBLA doesn’t exist. The perverts have their following and some who follow are there only to condemn others who call a disgusting deviant anything but. The deviants who habit filthy public restrooms in gang fashion often consume grams of fecal material, from multiple rimming and felching partners, teeming with billions of microorganisms, but hey, its just another kind of normal to tolerant homophiles.
I would ask the informed and tolerant UCLA person; can you tell us what group is the #1 vector for infectious diseases in the country?? Impress us with your knowledge of public health threats?? Please.
Oh no, I did not say that horny freaks cruising in public restrooms was ok!! It is not and these pervs should be arrested!
I just meant that they are cruising for willing participants.
My sickening story was me as a college student running to use a bathroom in a hurry and getting back to see a film I was to be tested on. Those were my priorities, not getting those gays arrested.
Again you act as if you speak for them all.
I have known of many cases of homosexual perverts harassing underage boys, harassing men even. Talk to any police officer in New Jersey and he will tell you of countless cases. They could less who they go after.
The guys cruising are looking for like-mindeds.
Of course there are pervs and child molesters who are acting singly and trying to get kids and innocents.
Not the same people.
In this thread your priority seems to be to defend homosexuals with constant claims that they would never harass anyone in public when the evidence is that they constantly do harass others.
That homosexual pedophilia has nothing to do with homosexuality is another myth spouted by people who want to defend homosexuality. They are not two different things. One perversion leads to another perversion and in any homosexual community or area you will many of the worst perversions being committed on a regular basis. Just look at any gay pride parade.
Stop promoting the normalcy of homosexuality using left-wing myths.
