Gays In Sports: Get A Grip

The coming out of former NBA also ran John Amaechi has brought a lot of attention to the topic of gays in sports. Most media outlets are running columns essentially saying that in the year 2007 it shouldn't be an issue, athletes shouldn't care whether teamates chase tail; or whether teamates chase TAIL.

John Amaechi? Who cares about the sexual preferences of an NBA no-namer years after he played? The casual fan doesn't remember Amaechi anyway.

At NOIS, we don't particularly care one way or the other about queers. Our only concern is that the current political climate is allowing the plight of gays to be associated with and treated as congruous to the plight of the Negro. Equating falsely named "homophobia" with racism is at best a reach, and at worst an effort to degrade the efforts of improved civil rights made and being fought for against racism.

Watch the news. The new move du jour is to vilify the word "faggot" by referring to it as the "f word". Just like "nigger" and the "n word".

And this is the point that we DO have a problem with gays.

The idea that a person's lifestyle and sexual CHOICE is equivalent to being born into a racist society because your Tribe was forcibly treated as a trade commodity and then institutionally battered is something that should anger everyone. Not just Negroes.

The bottom line is simple: Trying to force people to accept gays and treat them with reverence is asking people to modify their morals and values. It is asking people to change their moral view on sexual preference. Asking people to accept Negroes and treat them as equals is not a matter of forcing people to change their moral views on another's lifestyle CHOICE or preference.

With that in mind, we support the right of the NBA players to (when asked about this topic) say that they are not thrilled with sharing a locker room with gay players. It is their right to have these views. This is not the same as hating someone because of the race they were BORN into, this is simply having a discrepency with a person's lifestyle CHOICE. And as US citizens, we have that right.

Let's remember, the ONLY "f word" is fuck.

Oh, and to be clear John Amaechi is a faggot.

1. IT'S NOT A CHOICE.

Seriously, has anyone ever gone through all the options, weighed all the pros and cons, and then decided to be straight or gay? NO! It's just something you are, or it's something you notice. Like in junior high, I saw a girl running down the hall, clearly not wearing a bra, and that's when I realized, hey, I like girls.

2. Who the fuck is John Amaechi? He sounds Italian.

"1. IT'S NOT A CHOICE"

Sir, there is no scientific evidence which shows that it is "something you are born with"...there is no gene for it.

It IS clearly a choice. To quote the great philosopher Andrew "Dice" Clay: "either you suck dick, or you don't suck dick.....WOOAA!!"
The political climate today is trying to force the acceptance of gayness on society by claiming "it is something you are born with". The desired response then would be that since "it is something you are born with" that society has to accept it and it should be "normalized".

If sexual preference is something you are born with, then why do we lock up pedephiles and try to "cure" them? Isn't that something they are born with? Yet, psychologists and psychiatrists try to CURE them and label pedaphelia a mental disorder.

If we are to say that sexual preference is not a choice, then we must say that pedephiles are not sick and depraved. They are simply people acting on the inate sexual preference they are born with.

Oh, and John Amaechi is actually from Britain. He is a British faggot.

Choosing between being a Negro or being gay? Christ, I hope there's a third choice.

"jeez. your satire doesn't really work here. but I guess I admire you for being true to your character. "

Sir, the satire here is based on:
i) there are bigger fish to fry than gays in sports
ii) if hearing words hurts your feelings...don't listen.

Sir, a hairy back is not a trait normally associated with the original HUMAN.

While we find your offer flattering and don't doubt that you have us covered from any angle, we respectfully decline.

However, if you'd like to play hoops, you are welcome on our team any time. We're skins.

Sir, if we offended you in any way, we apologize. Often, when you can't see the truth, and someone comes along and shines a light on it...you get lost in the shadows. Follow the light.

Sir, there is a third choice. You can live in a world that allows political agenda to dictate moral climate. Enjoy.

Thanks, but we'll stick to the locker room mentality.

"Faggot? When we played this Elementary School Shit, they used to say, "It takes one to know one." "

Sir, our problem with the word "faggot" is that there is an existing effort to connect it to the word "nigger" and eradicate on similar terms.

The plight of the homosexual is in no way connected to or related to the plight of the Tribe of Shabazz. By honoring the homosexual request to call faggot the "f word" you are simultaneously degrading the plight of the original human in America and degrading the viciousness behind the word nigger.

Don't use faggot if you don't want to; but don't tell us it is "just like using the n word".
