Just goes to show that the whole "shower" issue is hysteric hyperbole because they have no legitimate arguments anymore.

    It is a legitimate argument, whether you happen to like it or not. Only hyper-partisans would dismiss legitimate parallels between the sexes, and sexual orientation.

    Like I've said many times, you and your ilk marginalize yourself before you even get started by your rhetoric; hoping and wishing that by brow beating your opponents that you'll somehow send them packing. Truth is some leave, but they may be leaving not by the measure of your well argued positions, but because they've seen your ilk before.

    Re: Michael Sam released by Rams

    He wasn't drafted because he was gay, and he wasn't released because he was gay. He was drafted because someone thought he should have a chance in the NFL being that he was a decent college player, and he was cut because he didn't appear to have what it takes to make it in the NFL.

    He may make a practice squad. He may make a roster somewhere. He may end up in the CFL or arena football, or he may just end up selling insurance. Whatever he ends up doing, I hope he's happy and healthy.

    He got picked up by no one because he is not a good football player according to all sources.

    What someone feels inherently related to their own sexuality isn't a "concept", founded on ignorance and fear or anything else. It's part of that individuals mental/physical/sexual makeup. To suggest that heterosexuals with an aversion to homosexuals is a developed "concept" is to play into the hands of those who claim that homosexuality is a developed taste, or "concept". Using your logic, homosexual males simply have a concept of females and sex that is founded out of ignorance and fear - equally nonsensical.

    People simply have to get over themselves - live their own lives - let others live their lives - and basically just respect each other's place in this world for the time we share it.

    Yes I saw that. The Alouettes have supposedly "reached out to him" according to Sports Illustrated. Hell he could play in worse places. Montreal is a cool city.

    Montreal has his CFL rights and the CFL eastern conference is a mess so any team could use him.
