I realize this is yet another topic about homosexuality, but it has recently come up in Australian media. A famous footballer, by the name of Jason Akermanis has said that effectively, Australian Rules Football is not ready for gay men.
When he said it, from my understanding he wasn't talking about on field performance or anything like that, but rather the large number of and I quote "Homoerotic things" that go on around a football club. Things like 18 blokes showering together and slapping each other on the butt.
Now, I'm all for gay rights in every field, and I don't believe they should be forced to be in the closet or disallowed to play football, but I personally don't think it's acceptable to expect a straight man to shower with a gay man. How would that be any different to expecting a woman to shower with a man? And I don't believe it's an issue based solely around anatomy. The segregation of men and women is surely because of the feelings that the anatomy arouses.
So yeah, I'm wondering what the gay community around Adisc thinks about this? There are some quite level headed people amongst you, so I figure Ill get some well reasoned arguments, rather than the "It's a non issue" that's being portrayed by the media.
