    Wow, just wow...

    I'd just like to emphasize for now, your statements about triviliazing sex life in the context of defining marriage is absurd, because societal norms are rooted in these so-said biological constructs. Marriage never would have happened if it weren't for sex. Whether it's 1950s or today, biologists define life in the context of the dissemination of genes through the act of reproduction.

    You are intentionally avoiding the point. Yes, I hold my wife's hand and show her affection in public. I'm also not at work either. So those questions don't relate at all to this discussion. None of this has anything to do with football. It is not relevant to the NFL. Period.

    It is only relevant to people who have an interest in trying to change other people's morals and opinions, while demanding no one dare "force their religion" on them when their views are opposed. The very definition of hypocrisy, and still, completely irrelevant to football.

    Because he is talking about it rather than hiding from the press.

    I think you fail to understand how important it is for young gay athletes to see someone like themselves. Even if the dude is flawed.

    Societal norms do change.

    Do I have to bring up things like interracial marriage?

    People (and animals) have had gay sex for a very long time. It even gets mentioned in the bible. There are many important roles played by sex that have nothing to do with makin' babies

    These threads are hilarious.

    The part where people act like someone is forcing them to read something is great. Since when did a decision to read an article constitute something be shoved in the reader's face?

    Also the part where people don't want to hear anything that includes the word "gay" because that would be shoving it in their face...........unless of course it pertains to denigrating those who are, then we're all good.

    If people were as focused on improving upon their flaws as they are in pointing out the perceived flaws of others the world would be a much better place.

    Hiding from the press about what? His gay lifestyle that everybody knows about, or hiding from the press for being a domestic abuser. Oh yeah, that's right. The media isn't projecting that fact in the context of another active athlete potentially coming out.

    actually it has been since the media has been all over it and he wants everyone to know hes gay. he just has to come out and announce it.

    Well right here on Cowboyszone i am coming out, im straight. There i am so brave. and i feel everyone is interested in my sexual orientation that i have to come out and tell them so they know. Now whos going to talk about me when im pretty sure they arent talking about me or caring to begin with. And im going to allow them to have their opinions.

    I don't hold my wife's hand in public. It is not the place to show affection. What part of the country are gays not allowed to hold hands? I don't agree with gay behaviour in public and I don't want to see heterosexuals making out either. Have you heard the expression "get a room" ? There is nothing brave or noble about people in the public eye making their sex life public. This victim crap gets old.

    So what? People have been having sex with animals for a very long time. Of course societal norms change. That does not mean societal norms change for the better or that because a person or people practice something in the past, it suddenly becomes good. Caligula fell in love with her horse, if I remember correctly.

    What your claiming is that NIBGoldenChild, even if he did, is somehow wrong for defining marriage in the context of sex, as if marriage is something more. But that type of reasoning downplays the significant factor that sex plays in marriage. Marriage would have never happened if it were not for sex and reproduction. Reproduction is the defining feature, per biologists, of life. That is how the gene is perpetuated. There would be no marriage if their was no sex and reproduction.

    Just as an aside, those same animals that have sex, also procreate with female species.

    Honestly, I heard about it like once when the incident happened and kinda forgot till now. Not sure where you get your news from, but I don't think anybody is all over the story.

    yes he could, people would've eventually forgot, just like a good portion of people likely don't remember the Kordell Stewart or Michael Westbrook rumors either.

    maybe he was aksed, and felt like he shouldn't have to hide who he is?

    if that expination doesn't make sense to you, maybe reading the article will clear up some questions.

    the media made a big deal about this and he went along, if he didnt really want attention it would have NEVEr come up, but it did so at some point he wanted attention.

    right, because the world is full of accepting individuals who won't judge him or want him to keep anything like that to himself.

    And I really don't see how the media made a big deal about this. They will now that he's come out, similar to the basketball player Jon Amechi, but from when the incident first happened to now, where was the big deal?

    talk about not knowing, the media was all over this with a few stories on how "a nfl player will come out in a few days"

    So yes THEY as well as Harris made a big deal of this.
