Because of the stereotype associated with football, i believe it would deter most gay people from pursuing a career in the NFL bringing the percentage down from overall population.

Completely disagree but it's nothing I can prove statistically.

I am not discounting that there isn't gay players in the league, but if I was a betting man, I would assume that the percentage is lower in the NFL than the general population.

I also have no stats to support... we can agree to disagree

Homophobia is amazingly stupid. But the thread reminds me of this:

I'm just trying to figure out how their sex lives has anything to do with football.

Who cares.

Thats kind of the way I am looking at it. Maybe I should announce at my job that I am attracted to long dark haired women regardless of race? Wonder how that will go...

That's kind of short sighted. We all come out as straight whenever we go out in public with our women. We don't have to say anything because it's the norm. However, this guy has to hide it, so if he is seen out in public with his boyfriend or whatever, it becomes a big story. This is why gay people have to "come out."

definitely was not trying to poke fun at it or nothing. I have my own thoughts on things and I will leave it at that. Sorry if I came off as short sided. Definitely wasn't on purpose

the fact that it's 2013 and this is even remotely news worthy tells me we have a long long way to go!

the whole showering thing being an issue is absurd too. they are gay, doesn't mean they have uncontrollable urges at all times and can't even shower with other men without it being a problem.

So in your opinion, does one have the right to be uncomfortable showering with a gay man? Or does the tolerance end there?

uncomfortable is a tough thing to measure!! maybe there's straight guy in there with a real small package and he feels uncomfortable too...so should he have a private shower area too? I'm grasping a little here I suppose. but to answer your question, in my opinion, I don't see there being an issue with showering with someone because they are gay. Based on the odds, changes are, if the whole team is in the showers, one of them is probably gay anyway, maybe even more.

I get what you're saying. I couldn't care less myself, but I could understand the alpha male, turbo-douche, jock type having a problem with it, and his views should be considered as well.

But to play devil's advocate, If I showered with the Top Cats, I'm not saying my urges would be uncontrollable, but they would most definately be present. I don't understand how it would be different with a gay man in a shower full of men. Maybe it is. I don't know.

ya, I don't know either. I am with you on the urges with the Top Cats though!!!!

I don't mean to stereotype, but I think homosexuality is much more prevalent in the female sports...or at least this is what I am lead to believe. I don't think it's a big deal for the women so I'm not sure why it should be for the men. again, just my opinion based on zero fact or science!
