"I wonder, will the WNBA send someone to Lawrence to discuss the problems faced by WNBA players that are straight?"

That's good stuff.

It was a mistake for the moderators to enable posting on this thread. This is disgusting.

I wonder how he managed to hide his erections? I have heard of stories about towel snapping in the locker rooms when arousal popped up. OW!-Where I work homosexual men sometimes have shown a keen sense of humor and love to laugh at themselves, even if they are having a sexual identity crisis behind the laughter.

I bet he didn't tell his teammates he preferred men.

Care to explain yourself, Dambudzo? That would be a nice change from your usual.

I hereby request that LJWorld shuts down this message board. Pretty please.

Mr_S: Nothing has been "discussed" on this board. All that have been made are idiotic, ignorant remarks that play off the stereotypical gay man.

And I've got news for you, your remarks are incredibly inconsiderate and offend me.

And I'm about as far from anti-gay as you can get.

Dambudzo: "For some reason unlike heterosexuals, homosexuals like painting targets on themselves." I'd like you to explain that.

We don't victimize ourselves. We don't paint a target on ourselves. Every time we have to defend ourselves because of ignorant morons, you say that we're victimizing ourselves.

Tychoman 11 years, 4 months ago

Self-loathing? Wow RT you keep topping yourself in the area of Most Moronic statement.

Dambudzo, since you are a "non-homosexual," don't even try to understand why we take pride in ourselves. You don't have to deal with the idiotic stereotypes, homophobia, discrimination and ignorance that we put up with on a daily basis.
