"Wearing tights is GAY and anyone who defends it is GAY!"
"I know you are, but what am I?"
Grow the hell up.
The homophobia on display in this thread is repulsive and undeniable. For crying out loud: what someone else chooses to wear isn't going to turn you gay. It's not a communicable disease and no one is obligated to live their lives within the confines of your limited gender roles.
You can't even have this argument without insinuating that there's something "wrong" with being gay, or "feminine", for that matter (and, no, the two are not one and the same.) If you believe that it's somehow immoral, that's your business - but as far as NikeTalk is concerned LGBT users are EVERY bit as welcome here as you are and you are NOT permitted to make derogatory comments about anyone's sexuality.
That said, if someone does say something bigoted, that doesn't give you the right to attack them in like fashion. Fighting prejudice with prejudice is not acceptable, and all these stereotypical "hood" comments being lobbed about are hideous in their own right.
I see a ton of stereotyping on either "side" of this discussion, and I hope no one here thinks they're really being a great ally to the LGBT community by accusing people of being "closeted homosexuals." It's just another way of using "gay" as an insult. You guys are tossing the accusation around like five year olds saying "OH YEAH!! WELL HE WHO SMELT IT, DEALT IT!!" What message do you think that sends?
Nothing good can come from leaving this thread open for further discussion. However, if you want to freak out over something infantile, I hear that people are talking about a Gay three-way in the Sports & Training forum. Git 'em, Hoss!
