    Wow, nice piece of hate propaganda.

    Hmm…no mention of the transguy basketball player from Georgetown? An FTM playing on a D-I major college team was huge in the trans community (he hadn’t started taking testosterone so he could stay on the women’s team, but still huge).

    “Sanzabelt” … haha! Brings back painful memories of playing high school football in Texas.

    Alabama football is superior to Texas, 38-21.

    Sports figures, irrelevant, unimportant.

    Great cartoon! Lester is pointing out that these “admissions” just aren’t interesting anymore and certainly aren’t germane to the sport. “Who cares (about sexual preference)?” should be the ultimate statement of acceptance for those who want such acceptance.

    Thank you! We don’t give a ____________ who Jason or anyone else is sleeping with. Get over yourself and play basketball or what ever else it is that you do for a living.

    This one made me laugh. The fan’s reaction was too funny.

    If you make up your own facts, you can prove anything. Please take the time to find out what “socialism” truly means, for one thing.

    Next, look at the upcoming NFL crowds: even for exhibition games, most stadiums are full. NFL is popular in Europe and Japan; that’s why games are played there. And I am sure you will not find any owner who wants his/her stadium to be half full.

    I am not a socialist. I have been building car engines since I was a teenager. I love mechanical things. I still do not understand the appeal of NASCAR. But I have no reason to be opposed to it, either.

    Please tell me how a gay person “forced his lifestyle” on you. Growing up in a Jewish family, I found many more people trying to force Jesus on me than those trying to force homosexuality on me. As a matter of fact, I can’t remember anyone trying to force homosexuality on me.

    And as for the idea of “recipient class benefits”, I am assuming you are referring to welfare cheats and not the person who gets a $77K tax write-off for dance lessons for his horse or an oil company receiving subisidies or a defense contractor who pays no tax on billions in provable income. I know what’s coming next: “They’re just taking advantage of what the law allows.”

    So are welfare cheats. So, the right answer? CHANGE THE LAWS. I’ll hold my breath.

    I agree that a person’s sexual orientation has nothing to do with playing a game. It is interesting to note, however, that some of the same posters who claim they don’t care, either, get their knickers in a knot when it comes to allowing gay people to get married or alleging that they “force their agenda” on the rest of us.

    I am reminded of the story my friend tells of the time he lived in Utah. A gay couple opened a flower shop across the street from a firehouse. One day the store caught fire. Not one firefighter lifted a finger to help; they all watched the store burn down. My friend moved soon after. I wonder how many of those firemen are now saying, “What does it matter, as long as he can play the game?”

    Seems like Puppy (Ansonia, Comiclover, CB136) has been busy creating new profiles and having conversations with herself. Tell me, how much do you get paid for creating fake profiles? Or is it by the post?

    “But don’t force your lifestyle on the rest of us.”

    And by that you mean they should just stay hidden away in the closet and except their place as second class citizens to be looked down upon, if not out persecuted, by “normal” people like yourself.

    Who cares whether sports fans and cartoonists care or don’t care that Jason Collins is gay??? That’s not what this is about at all. It’s about Jason Collins and HIS courage to play in a homophobic game openly gay. So, to this cartoonist and these other ignorant commenters that agree with him, just come out and say you don’t like gay people and you’d rather not discuss their being open in team sports as opposed to trivializing a role model’s courage and making it all about you…not to mention the insulting equation of the courage of coming out as gay to being a country music fan.
