Typical Stereotypes Of Gay Athletes In The Locker Room
What's being said about gay athletes?
Some common stereotypes about gay men are very untrue. Read on!

Yet, these same players (yes I know I'm generalizing) wouldn't think twice about undressing the first hot chick with their eyes who stumbled into the locker room by accident while trying the find the ladies room. Funny how as long as it’s heterosexual and objectifying women then it's ok! Wrong! Us gay men have dignity too and we can tell you how to have all the right moves when it comes to making assumptions about us.

  • Not all gay men drop to their knees at the sight of a penis! So get over it and quit dreaming.
  • Emotions and wanting more beyond the "climax" isn't just a woman thing. Admit it, even you straight guys want more.
  • Touchdowns and beer do not discriminate so why should you. It's about being a team and going for the win.
  • There are players on both sides of the fence. They play, they get off, they move on. Doesn't mean everyone plays that game.

Once the cheers have gone silent, the stadiums and arenas are left to the cleaning crews and the uniforms go to the laundry, one thing remains the same ... we're all human and we should all be given the freedom to be who we are.

As cornerback Tarell Brown said, "I just feel like, you shouldn't hide it. At the end of the day don't be embarrassed with what you are or what you do. If you are that way, that's you.” (Source: blog.sfgate.com)
