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.

Very interesting. That Gimelstob comment is probably true. I doubt many (apart from one obvious person) would be unpleasant to an out gay pro, but they sure as hell wouldn't be seen with or have much to do with them lest speculation on them would start . It would be very lonely for a gay player in an environment that's already lonely. Still, hopefully someone will be brave enough to do it not too far in the future.

Re: The gay male player speculatron

Sorry if this has been posted before Nico Almagro weighed in on the issue earlier this year:

Quote:
The question I've been asked to translate by @triplebagel and @babblingbrat: "Nico, I'm a great follower of yours. Do you think there would be room for a gay player on the Tour? Do you know of any? (I'm not asking you to out anyone of the closet, only if there are.)"

A: "I really don't know but the gays have the right to have a normal life, they are people like the rest of humanity and I believe there's room for everyone. Everything gets achieved with work and sacrifice, I don't believe that one's sexual preferences have anything to do in the practice of a sport. I insist: if one earns it to be with us, it's not for anyone to judge his sexual orientation."

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..

Wow. How cool of Almagro. This is progress. Things are getting so much better for gay people. It makes me happy.
