Would an openly gay player on an NFL team be treated similar to a woman when it comes to locker room/showering and be required to shower separately? I'm not sure what the laws are regarding this but I'm sure it only covers genders showering separately, not taking homosexuals into account. While the argument can be made that it does not make a difference since same anatomy, etc, an argument could also be made that males and females in schools, gyms, etc are required to have different locker rooms/showers to prevent sexual harassment or deviancy. I'm just curious as to the issues that would stem from this and how they would be handled while not offending or violating anyone's rights, as it is reasonable for people to be uncomfortable showering with someone who openly states he his attracted to their gender, just the same as most females don't want guys they aren't involved with seeing them in the buff. Sorry if its a dumb question Its been a long two days of studying and writing papers all day/night and I'm mentally exhausted.

If I was gay I would be offended that some of you think you know who is gay and who isn't. And others are hoping players they hate are gay. That right there is the problem. I just hope whomever it is continues to enjoy their NFL career. Gay footballers in Europe have come out and some of them end up committing suicide when their career abruptly ends. This is a big deal. Our state voted down Gay marriage in a landslide. How would people feel if a Panther came out? Charlotte might embrace them but all those rural areas would harass this guy.
People making endless jokes about it is ultimately eminent. People will always make jokes about things like that, but then there will likely also be those who are being straight hateful. The joking and the memes would never end though.

I also think the need for gay rights is over blown. I mean there are hate crimes against the gay community, but I hate how they try to say they are opressed in todays time like Jews or Africa-Americans were back in times. They act like they can't vote or you can just hang them without going to jail! It's not even close to me. To me a gay person can hide that they are gay, but you can never hide the fact that you are of a certain race or color.
I also think it's an unknown bench player in the NFL or it might be a coach.(staff)

Shows you how much it is frowned upon.
Statistically we have at least a couple gay dudes on our roster.

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