    Well the Celtics did. And Jason Collins has had one of the best +/- of centers every year since he was drafted. Even this year he was positive while playing on the Celtics before their comeback and then joining the Wizards.

    Honestly, why do you think Collins has made 33 million dollars playing basketball and started 71 playoff games? Do you think you know more about basketball than the GMs who keep resigning him?
    hey, I get it dude...you have a massive hard-on for the guy because he had a couple of good years playing for your favorite team. I feel the same way about Kevin McHale

    But it is also true that this event does serve a purpose in real life... for people who are fearful about how society will view them if they come out it provides a direct benefit. That's why it's national news.
    I'm not buying that. America isn't generally hostile towards homosexuals these days and the current reactive nature of some makes it unlikely people are going to be honest about it, even if they are just unsure what to say about it.

    No, it was an observation. I do not define things by saying what they aren't, that would be retarded.

    But even if it was simply an observation, it would also still be wrong

    Aside from the fact that it's correct, what's wrong about it?

    Bully for you. Why do you think you have to buy something for it to be true? It's very arrogant.


    America isn't generally hostile towards homosexuals these days and the current reactive nature of some makes it unlikely people are going to be honest about it, even if they are just unsure what to say about it.
    I see that you have taken all of your understanding of what it is like to be a gay person in America and applied it to your decision to arbitrarily deny reality.

    This supposed non-issue has over 550 posts already. Obviously a lot of people care...some care a little too much, me thinks.

    It caused him to respond within minutes even though he has stated that he hates basketball. He hates the sport being discussed in the thread.

    So there's no doubt, he definitely cares a great deal about the other aspect of the topic. There's no other logical explanation for his presence in the thread.

    Well, the guy who coined the term would disagree

    No, I am actually pointing to observations that undermine your claim.

    PS are you gay?

    as I pointed out, people simply talking about something doesn't lend it significance.

    Might this be a significant event? Sure, but talking about it doesn't actually establish it as so.

    I don't think you can speak for him.

    that's your problem. you thought you coulod figure out what would undermine my claim. You clearly cannot do this, since what you cited does not do this.

    PS are you gay?
    Why would that matter?
