So I hear on the way to work this morning that Jason Akermanis has urged gay AFL players to stay in the closest - oh please Mr Akermanis - why should you have an opinion that is so bigoted.
Oh I see that you say it might make other players (you??) uncomfortable because Australian Rules Footy is just not ready.
So I assume that is because you and other AFL players think that when a person is gay they can not control their sexual urges? Sorry, I think you might be a little wrong there.
I always knew you were an idiot, and now you have quite publicly confirmed the fact.
If gay members of our society are ever to be accepted then it is in bastions of maleness like footy clubs that the first steps need to be made. I don't think it hurt Rugby when Ian Roberts announced he was gay.
I also see that Mr Akermanis thinks it is okay for gay sports women to come out - would that be because of your fantasy factor - oh sorry that was a little off of me wasn't it. I just did the same as you made an assumption of why it is more widely accepted. But see if I make an assumption it is not newsworthy - you on the other hand have a responsibility to think of the wider picture if you are going to be the spokesman for all of AFL.
One can only hope you never have a gay child Mr Akermanis - for God only knows how you would handle that. If this outburst is anything to go by - not well I would think.
Me on the other - I am proud of my gay children - oh and I treat all my children the same, I don't make assumptions that they are perverts because of their sexual preference - gay or not. Maybe you could learn a lesson here?
