We just don't know that. He has not stated what his issues specifically are. If his issues are that he doesn't like being called the N word, or his teammates telling him they are going to F his sister, that could be very reasonable and hardly 'sensitive'. The use of sensitive in this context is just what I meant. Why would you attach gay to sensitive unless you are throwing every gay under an umbrella. (That is my main objection here, that something can be explained by being gay, as if there are attitudes, characteristics, mentalities etc that 'all gays have') Not as bad in what way? Hell he hasn't even given examples, and you seem to be drawing the line between disgusting and funny as if it were obvious. There is nothing at all to evidence a secret is being hidden. Come on. Its clear that the stereotypical gay guy who easily have his feelings hurt, throw a 'hissy fit' quit and go hide in a hospital when the big mean football player called him a name. Lets not pretend there was something else behind the 'suspision' Why? Couldnt the 'secret', if you require one for some unknown reason, be: -He doesn't like football -He was embarrassed that he found his teammates intimidating -He harbors issues with being half black and half white and not fitting in with either group on the team -He blew his money gambling and is broke -He has a drinking problem -His girlfriend dumped him -He doesn't like living in Miami and is homesick or any other number of things. Do we really need to feed a stereotype? If that wasn't the point of the leap, why make the leap? As I said there are other possibliities that don't require a stereotype. How would you know whether he has visible girlfriends? As far as #1, HUH?
