Is it sexist to put the G in front of the L? Who decided this? Are there homo focus groups?

Is "GLSEN" allowed in Scrabble? Is there homo Scrabble?

Is this pathetic or what? Who’d ever believe that the sodomites would brag about their being sodomites.

I’d rather not know and watch their athletic abilities rather than think about their perversions.

Now we’ll be looking at these faggots like everybody looks at Monica’s mouth whenever they talk to her.

Well I think Tori Hunter is clear since he disclosed that he would be uncomfortable with turd burglars in the locker room.

Switching around TV the other night, I saw a comedy skit where two guys were talking about fast food at a makeshift Chick-fil-A. As the camera changed angles, there were two males making out. Sadly, it is going to be mainstream if it already isn't. Eventually, teams will be wearing rainbow jerseys to “celebrate” the act.

So much for pro sports. Let the gays support all the teams and the players’ high salaries, that’ll surely work.

I will just quit watching the sports. I do not want to hear about their perversions.

I don’t think a revelation like this is going to happen anytime soon — at least not in a major team sport. If anything, it might happen in something like auto racing where nobody interacts directly with each other anyway, or maybe in a minor sport dominated by steroids (cycling, for example) where the competitors are considered freaks anyway.

What is the big deal, there are plenty of open lesbians in the WNBA.

Oh, the NY times are writing about pro sports that seem to matter, ok.

Yeah, I saw that commercial and am surprised that a so-called Christian company would present sodomites in their commercial. What gives with that?

When the announcements come, the diversity-loving (or intimidated) 60% will pretend to celebrate, but fewer will buy and wear their jerseys, and fewer will want to watch a gay guy slap another man on the rear after a good play. The announcements will do significant damage to revenue - and the far left will believe it’s worth the price.

It wasn’t an ad but a skit for a comedy show that I saw. It was a cable channel.

I actually saw a commercial that showed sodomites being presented as customers in a restaurant. I wonder if it was Chick-Filet . . . It was an actual commercial during the day.
