    I disagree, people thought the same thing about AIDS until Magic Johnson caught the disease, for example...

    Culliver's comments were ignorant, and the fact he plays in San Francisco really makes it worse for him. Sure it's his opinion, but it's an ignorant one.

    I disagree. Of course it wouldn't just change over night from a super star coming out, but there would be change. If you look at the change in attitudes within regular society towards homosexuals over the past 30 years there is change, even if it's slow. I feel the main reason for people's attitudes changing is if they have direct experiences with homosexuals. Then they see that they are just as normal as straight people. Having homosexuals out within a sport would expose those people who have the problems. I think a lot would change their views especially if they happen to be close to this said teammate.

    Freedom of speech is not absolute. I doubt you would say he is free to say whatever he wants if he was giving away US military secrets. I doubt Culliver would support someone saying he same thing he said, except about African Americans. Homophobia can be just as destructive and offensive.

    The irony is that most of you guys would not want to be naked in a locker room with an openly gay guy or guys. That is all he said. He didn't bash gays, say he was against being gay, say he opposes gay marriage or call for all gays to be imprisoned. All he said was that he wouldn't be OK with a gay guy in the locker room.

    Nah…can't be…in the locker room man.

    people are still expected to conduct themselves a certain way publicly. I don't think he should have come out and said that. I also think if a player is gay they don't need to say it. Its still a business and they should conduct themselves as such. Gay or not, or what you think about it is irrelevant as a public professional. It has no place in it either way. Keep your personal life out of your work no matter what it is.

    In high school, my teammate in swimming, one of the best swimmers in the state was openly gay. He didn't try anything, he didn't even look at us. This is such a dumb statement and generalization to make. Are you attracted to every girl you see? No. Are gays attracted to every guy they see? No. Stop generalizing.

    its not generalizing. Its the idea that the guy could be looking at them. Whether he really is or not. A lot of strait guys aren't comfortable with that idea.
