Of course, you never understood, because heterosexuality is the norm, straight people push their straight lifestyle in the faces of gay people every single day.
It is statistically impossible to say there are no gay men in the ATP top 100. There has to be at least five gay men in the top 100 it is impossible for there to be none.
Your comment about being it pointless that people care is kind of ludicrous.
Homophobia especially against male athletes is a serious issue. Robbie Rogers the American soccer player QUIT the sport because he feared dealing with the homophobia of the heterosexual men. Heterosexual men are the problem they are bullies they attack gay men and keep them silent.
Er Dorothy's my friend as they say in some quarters. I told people if they asked & I didn't/haven't ever asked for anyone's approval.
Who in turn have fallen over themselves 'buying into it.' Civil partnerships, marriage, children...
Not necessarily. I work within the artistic community and the number of gay men is relatively high but as I've already commented on, in thirty years my dad hasn't worked with any out gay men in his industry. If it's possible to have no gays in that industry, why not in tennis also?
I would argue it's 'ludicrous' for people to care. A person is a complete stranger to 'yourself', means absolutely nothing to 'you', yet 'you' care for their opinion? If so why?
'I felt like I couldn’t play and come out,' Rogers told Cooper. 'I thought it would be too emotional for me, it would be a circus. I just thought it would be very difficult the impact on the team with the media showing up every day, I’m glad it did it this way. I am happy.'
'I’m not worried about the fans. I’m worried about going to the footballer locker room. If I go back I want to go as a soccer player, not the gay soccer player.'
Doubt & worry seem to have been the problem, not fear.
Some heterosexual men. Running away isn't the answer to bullying. I've never been bullied, I have 'suffered' name calling but ultimately gave as good as I got.
