    That's what she said

    (just in case certain people are wondering, no...there is not a literal woman I know that said that)

    given the reaction here, it's not really surprising more people were not critical of Collins coming out. I mean, it's not like professional sports is known to be the most PC and enlightened crowd, so I doubt everyone was actually like "cool"

    Guess it's a good thing he didn't describe his defense on James as niggardly or he would have had to not only apologize to everyone in the country but probably retire from the league!

He used the term "homo" as an insult toward LeBron James. Can you tell the difference?
    Actually, it wasn't an insult towards Lebron if you know the usage of the phrase. It's normally used in the same vein as the phrase "That's what she said" ie a statement that has nothing to do with sex (in this case, homosexual sex) but could be misconstrued or twisted to mean something sexual ie "Man, that was hard." when speaking of a workout but to which someone else says "That's what she said" thereby twisting it into a sexual statement. Why do I know this much about it? I spend all day with 18-21 year old Marines.

    This is an overreaction IMO. How is it okay for Jason Collins to proclaim his sexuality but not okay for Roy Hibbert to say what he said? The sexual preference of public figures is something that homosexuals use constantly to further their cause. When the other side says something, I don't believe it to be proper for the gay community and/or gay supporters to attempt to shame them or muzzle them. Simple as that.

    Pacers center Roy Hibbert apologizes for gay slur, *reaches out to Jason Collins* - NY Daily News
    I agree that people freaking out about this are overreacting (because frankly who gives a ****), but do you honestly not see the difference between talking about your own sexuality and insulting someone else's? How are those not obviously different things to you?

    It'd be the same as the difference between you pointing out that you're from (e.g.) Alabama (I have no idea where you're actually from), and me calling you a redneck hick. Apples and oranges.

    So another basketball player was called a "homo". All that demonstrates is that the player who said it is ignorant, but when intelligence becomes the main criteria in professional sports we can expect the quality of the athletes to be severely lowered. I'm certain that the subject of the slur was man enough to take it.

    My youngest son is Gay and if he heard that he would not find it offense, only stupid. We can't fine people for being unwittingly stupid for conversation however. That only creates bitterness, resentment, and drives the talk underground. This will most likely create more problems in the locker rooms rather than less. We're just not likely to hear about it.
    here's the old days

    many years ago there was a short basketball player named Calvin Murphy. Norwalk CT-to Niagra to the NBA. he might have been the most coordinated man on earth-he used to do a half time show with twirling batons that was a thing of awe. He also was one of the baddest toughest guys in pro ball


    Boston had a power forward named Sydney Wicks Wicks was 6-9 a foot taller then Murphy

    in one game Murphy was going into score and wicks hammered him. Murphy made some comment that Wicks was a "fag" (there was a rumor in the league Wicks was gay). Wicks took a swing at Murphy who jumped up-grabbed Wicks' fro and proceeded to beat the living crap out of the foot taller guy
