The fact that people think this is embarrassing is downright troublesome. Let's avoid the homophobia, eh?

The Sox haven't won in years, they are living it up, and promoting the team. That's what they should be doing.
I'm back. Sorta.

You do know what homophobia is, right?

Homophobia: "Fear of or contempt for lesbians and gay men."

Now look at these two posts:

anyways here is a funny article that pretty must disgraces the world champs....Sox fans hide your heads again. I can't wait to see what chant the yankees fans come up with for this one!

So ACS says this disgraces the Sox, and you say it is embarrasing. Disgrace is in the definition of contempt, and embarrasing is not that far off.

Is there any wonder why no gay men come out while playing baseball? It's attitudes like this--that associating with gay people, or getting made up by gay people, or joking around with gay people is "embarrasing" or a "disgrace"--that force gay baseball players to stay quiet.

This is the definition of homophobia.

Agreed 100%.

I got a laugh out of the story but don't think there's any embarrassment or disgrace in associating with gays or lesbians.

I didn't really think you meant anything by it to begin with, which is why I responded the way I did on the first page. But once I saw where the thread was going I felt a need to jump in how I did. I don't doubt that you have absolutely nothing against gays.

But come on now, since when does hanging out with your girlfriend and a lesbian show that you're not a homophobe? All that shows is that you're a man. I can just picture it now ...

ACS: Hey ... uuummm ... sooo ... honey ... uuuummm ... I was thinkin' that ... uuumm ...

Girlfriend: $^@% you ACS.

Lesbian friend: #@&$ you ACS.

:-b :-b :-b :-D :-D As if every guy hasn't had this discussion with his girl.

I wouldn't want my team associated with a bunch of gay guys. The literal definition of the word is "fear of homos." I'm not afraid of them. They can go do whatever they want in the privacy of their home, but I don't need to hear all about it. This is going to get political, so Trans, please get off your high horse and stop lecturing me on how/what I should think. Political correctness is killing this country
