Of course...Because there's nothing wrong with being gay, and there's a lot wrong with using PEDs. So speculating about PEDs without proof could tarnish a player's name.
I don't think you got my point. I am not arguing about whether being gay is right or wrong (that is a whole different subject). I am talking about people spreading rumors about players. Speculating about a player's sexuality can also ruin their reputation. That is something that should be obvious. Why do you think gay players aren't coming out???
There is a reason why they aren't doing that, and it has to do with their public image. Heck, some of them probably haven't come out to their parents.
So, what you are effectively doing is spreading rumors and outing people who don't want be outed. It is simply none of your business to find out if these rumors are true or not.
This thread is no different than the PED one, and in a way it is even worse, because you are allowed to speculate about someone else's sexuality because of the way they dress, act. etc..
