Why do people always seem to assume that sports stars must be in the closet when it looks like they're hiding something?

Self-deception is a powerful thing.
It's just a feeling -- I'm not putting money on it. It's just that there are many, many examples of the closet bringing out the crazy in people.

Because, as you know, homosexuality is verboten in sports. Quick, without looking it up, name ten professional male American atheletes who are known to be gay.

And I mentioned it in this specific case because he's also a Mormon attending a Catholic college, neither of which is an institution that's hunky-dory about gay people. It's like a perfect storm of unacceptance.

Yes I've seen that. What I mean is I haven't heard about any of it prior to you guy's mentioning anything.

...I can't name 10 professional male American athletes of any sexuality, though.

A little disappointed in my best friend for getting back with her ex-boyfriend. They broke up around October and she was so upset about it for a good month and was heartbroken. I pretty much had to comfort her for quite a few weeks due to how upset she was. After talking a little this month they're all good now and back together. I just think she deserves better and she might just be hurt again by the same guy

I can only name people who have made significant accomplishments/important ones... like Muhammed Ali, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson... etc

I went to see my endocrinologist today and didn't get good news, so I am feeling a bit bad now. I gained some weight instead of losing and raised my blood pressure up a bit. I was told it could be because my body is fighting to get used to my new schedule and just starting to get easier now.

I have dance tomorrow for two hours. I can use the exercise.

So I guess people think Lightning is the first female lead for a Final Fantasy.

I also guess people are fucking stupid and never played other Final Fantasies.
