    Are you going moderator?

    And do you notice I was not criticizing him at all.

    2.) i could never factually answer this questions in blanket form because im not dumb enough to think that one answer applies to all.
    But here is a list of some of it:
    ignorance
    shallowness
    stupidity
    bigotry
    fear
    religion
    just to name some

    3.) many straight men have imagery of gay men? hmm i see no evidence to support this claim
    4.) nobody is hiding just laughing at your strawman and made up stories
    5.) i never insinuate any such thing at all, no where EVER did i say he doesnt have to fear bigotry any more, another mistake by you
    6.) discrimination of many forms
    7.) already did see the answer to number 2
    8.) sorry tim what i pointed out was fact, you factually made stuff up and argued a strawmen that was never mentioned by me. This fact will not change based on your feelings.
    With all due respect, you don't know what a straw man is, or how to apply it in rebuttal to one's argument. You said that this gentlemen no longer has to live in fear of bigotry. I challenged you on that assumption by asking specifically what you think bigotry, is. I went further to extrapolate that in the context you were using the term you seemed to think that bigotry is defined by anyone that finds homosexuality wrong, and disgusting by making their opinions known and public. So why are they bigots? Is that a strawman to you?

    Tim-
    1.) wrong i just factually point some out that you made in your post
    2.) again no need to be upset cause you got caught making stuff and posting strawman, move on cause these facts wont change.
    3.) no i never said this EVER, not one time
    4.) no you didnt because it was never said LMAO but please make up more stuff
    5.) and there nothing logical to that ASSUMPTION you made up because in the conext i used it NOTHING even hints to that definition LMAO
    6.) why are WHO bigots, i havent called anybody specifically a bigot LMAO
    7.) yes it is because the things you are climing to be said were never said, that is infact a straw man just like your other post

    strawman
    : a weak or imaginary opposition (as an argument or adversary) set up only to be easily confuted
    Strawman - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    strawman
    2. a weak or sham argument set up to be easily refuted

    by definition they were in fact strawman because i never said them and you made them up, YOU set them up

    What does six rebounds in thirty-one minutes mean as a center? Suck.

So just by the law of averages, if you have sports leagues that have at least 600 to 700+ all male athletes in each league, guaranteed there's at least a handful of gay men in each league.

    I never heard of Jason Collins before this, but good for him!
