    that's a bit hysterically hyperbolic isn't it?

    what do you think would happen in an Islamist nation if two gay guys started playing tonsil hockey in public?

    It's an analogy. And Muslims are not big on homosexuality but I'm not big on that part of Islam, or Christianity, or Judaism, etc.

BUT tell me, did you ever play with guys who didn't know what it was to be part of a team? Many of Jackie Robinson's teammates didn't want him on the team, but in the end stood by and stood up for him.

    TD ... you keep missing the point ... a team is a team is a team ... if you want to make distinctions between olympic and other teams, knock yourself out ... I don't ... When they stop counting medals by countries, which, btw, I wish they would, then I may start thinking of the Olympic Team as something other than a team ... gotta go, catch up with you later ... congrats on your athletic exploits - impressive ...

    you are missing the point. If the athletes want to not go because they want the few gays on their team to be able to engage in PDA, that's fine

    what is not fine is a pimp in office telling people who trained for years they cannot go so that pimp can pander to a few who cannot keep it in their pants

    TD, not only are all black men not pimps, the vast majority of them (well over 99%) are not. And in case you were wondering, the vast majority of black women (well over 99%) are not prostitutes.

    PDA? What's that?
