  • Is fear of the media really keeping gay pro athletes in the closet?

    in LGBT

    A recent report said that two gay NFL players are refusing to come out publicly as gay because they don't want a lot of media attention for any kind of big announcement. It's an interesting revelation that both reflects and belies what we think we know about professional athletes.


    On the one hand they want all the attention they can get to maximize exposure. Exposure means more of the all-mighty dollar that so many of them seek in the short span of their careers. On the flip side, we often hear that athletes don't want to be known as the "gay athlete" but just want to be known for their athletic accomplishments. 


    We discuss the idea of the media keeping athletes in the closet, and also the impact that big-name professional athletes can have when they come out publicly.


    Plus, we have the growing attention being paid to trans issues in sports and the generosity of one young gay professional athlete named Robbie Rogers.

    Hey gang. 
    The stories just weren't coming together for a white on white crime episode, so I decided to put the focus on a quesiton that was asked of me by one of the folks in the social networks. 

    This is his quesiton. 

    To all the men on my news feed who are lightweight well versed in the feminisms like me, do you still sometimes get afraid or nervous when calling misogyny out in other men? I do. At least if it's someone I don't really know. Or I'm outnumbered in progressive opinions. Or if I do say something I get nervous and start to jumble my words and shit sounds really fragmented. And they usually don't end up listening anyway. Most times I get written off. But sometimes they do see the err. But they may say something else lightweight sexist that I'll let slide or address in a humorous manner because I'm afraid that they'll revert back to just being full on misogynists cause male ego and shit. All that to say, are any of my men friends afraid of men and/or addressing misogyny in men like me? I'd really love the feedback.

    I'll be answering that and digging into some news and comment. 

    From there, I'll pass the microphone to Phoenix Calida and Lisa Loco.
