So the gay guy should be quiet for the good of the team?
I see your point Santo, but eventually someone has to do something to move this thing forward. It's a little like saying the person/people that are repressed need to keep quiet so things can continue the way dominant society hopes they do. There are times when the individual must speak out.
Move what forward... Why do we need to "move it forward?" I have not seen even one case where a homosexual wanted to play baseball. Not one. It ain't like there is a AAA or college star out there that is wanting to play. Just how many poor "oppressed (roll eyes 2x)" gay baseball players are there in the world?

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
