Discussion in 'The Beautiful Game' started by DutchOven, Nov 18, 2004.
Besides Beckham and Totti, are there any openly gay professional footballers?
Why do you ask? Are you thinking of putting another poster up in your room?
r u a professional?
i've heard ljunberg is gay, but idk?
Ben Dover. Plays for UpYours in England.
Baros is gay. Picture of him in a paper coming out of a gay club holding some guys hand. Sad.
Then i lost all respect for him.
Zenetti, Bastituta, Veron, and Other Random Homosexual
Needs no caption.
That's the first I've heard of this,
and of course, not forgetting his closest bumchums:
Seeing as we are on the topic...
Should I put up the New York Times pics of the US Men?
Looks like he is still sore from the night before...
Why is that sad?
That is sad.
I don't get it. You respected Milan Baros for his heterosexuality and not his skill? What changes in his game if he were to be homosexual?
Oh and also, this is an extremely offensive thread.
As far as i remember Baros has a girlfriend and she was shown on TV during EURO 2004- she looked pretty hot.
Not that it's true...but why are you concerned with what another man might or might not be doing with his penis?? Sounds like it YOU with the issues...
Why? It would only be offensive if you think homosexuality is offensive. If someone is openly gay, how is that offensive? A top show in both US and Britain is called "Queer Eye."
Just like talking about skin color, mentioning a characteristic does not make it offensive. What would be offensive is if you posted gays being tortured, or some other anti-gay discrimination by Nazi's or something.
This is a ridiculous response. It is fine to have a discussion on whether or not there are any openly gay players or not. That is not what I take issue with. But it is that the thread devolves into people showing pictures of people in suggestive positions and then branding them as gay as if to be a homosexual is an insult. It does not have to be as blatant as torture or Nazis, discrimination can be subtle.
And also, my statement that this is an offensive thread stemmed from the post with the naked woman in front of the Argentine wall. Objectifying women is offensive.
Oh please. Women are sexual objects...hence why we have sex with them. I can view a woman as a sexual object but still have a certain amount of respect for her.
I agree completely. Unfortunately, it occurs so frequently on sports-related boards, it's little wonder that women are scarce.
I think he was referring to the direction the thread had taken, not the original intent.
Wouldn't you rather view her as a sexual being, and not an object?
There you go, Sexual OBJECTS. Only a certain amount of respect? What have they done not to garner your full amount of respect?
Yes... Neo and Jackie Treehorn are now treating objects as women.
