In a column published Thursday on website Mile High Sports, Knudson claims that a gay player will ultimately become attracted to a teammate and it will cause complete chaos in the locker room and make other
REAL men uncomfortable and causing “internal strife and locker room drama,”. But let him tell you in his own words:
“That’s why it remains the best option for any homosexual athlete in a team sport to keep his orientation private,” Knudson writes. “He’s doing what’s best for himself by doing what’s best for the team.”
First off, the use of homosexual as apposed to using gay, right off the bat, sends signs of homophobic. No friend of Dorothy’s uses that term. Referring to gay people as homosexuals in statements like his, is like referring to African American’s as Coloreds.
USA Today sportswriter Ted Berg, says “If there are in fact closeted gay guys in the clubhouse who can’t keep their eyes off super-hot teammates like Mark Knudson … then what difference does it make if the gay teammates are out or not? Wouldn’t Knudson, as an attractive person, know either way?” Berg writes. “So it seems like his actual suggestion, then, is not that gay baseball players keep their sexuality to themselves so much as that gay baseball players just not be gay.”
I could go on about the stupidity of Knudson. But my only advice to him would be to take his dick out of his hand, turn off the gay porn and enjoy the real thing.
