NFL Player Is Worried Gay Players Will See Him in the Shower

Redskins: Stop worrying about gays and start
worrying about your record and stupid-ass name.

As gay athletes slowly come out of the closet -- not surprising that pro athletes represent a last bastion of homophobia -- and into the locker room, some hetero players are expressing fear:
Andrea Kremer, the NFL's chief correspondent for player health and safety, recently sat down with various NFL members to discuss the culture of the locker room. The men admitted to a no-holds-barred atmosphere, where the n-word flies and hazing happens. But apparently the possibility of an openly gay player in that atmosphere would "test the limits of tolerance," according to Kremer.
"There's such a stigma with gay and homosexuals within male sports," London Fletcher, Washington Redskins linebacker, said during the session with Kremer. "It would be very difficult for that first person to come out."
"I think that he would not be accepted as much as we think he would be accepted," Vilma added. "I don't want people to just naturally assume, like, 'Oh, we're all homophobic.' That's really not the case. Imagine if he's the guy next to me and, you know, I get dressed, naked, taking a shower, the whole nine, and it just so happens he looks at me. How am I supposed to respond?"
Dude, it might be helpful for you to consider this: Gays have been looking at your sorry ass for years and somehow you've survived it.

I'm not a professional athlete, but I've been a member of a gym for a gazillion years, and if I've never been ogled by a gay here and there, I must be some pretty ugly bastard.

I'm just sayin'. Get over yourself, and let's move on.

Athletes: Worried about gays? How about worrying
about paychecks and championships, huh?
