    Exactly like that except different in every meaningful way.

    Ha, nice try on the homophobia fail, Tucky.

    I'm concerned about his poor girlfriend is all. Why is he so courageous in your mind? What kind of guy strings a woman along for 7 years, count them seven freaking years of her life wasted away while this turd was making up his mind what he was.

    But hey, if that's the kinda thing that get your support, then I applaud your courage for standing up for him.

    Huh? A bunch of tennis players came out decades ago. Swimming, skating, former NFL players have come out. He was not the first. Now if we're talking about folks who alter the landscape, there was Renee Richards back in 75.

    Would it be homophobic to say that one is suffering from "Gay News Fatigue?"

    I personally have zero sympathy for ANYONE that offs themselves. The reasons are immaterial in my mind.

    Funny, I am on record here as supporting gay marriage, gays in the military, etc. but because I don't sing the praises of this guy...I am a homophobe.

    Bingo.

    It would have been more groundbreaking if he announced that the games are fixed.
