    If the league for for gay only, why did the team alllow 2 Bi people on it?

    Personally, I think the teams should be open to all LBGT people.

    1. It seems to be considered something of a social crime for gay people to want to have our community.

      What others letters shall we add? ‘V’ for vegetarians? ‘MH’ to show our inclusivity for people with mental health problems? ‘P’ for people with pets?

      You seem to be saying two different things at the same time. You think the teams should be open to all LGBT people. Well the “B” means bisexual. Then you question why they allowed 2 Bi’s on the team. A bit confusing.

        He wrote two sentences, broken into two paragraphs.

        The first one said:
        If the league for for gay only, why did the team alllow 2 Bi people on it?
        This means he is questioning why a league for “GAY” only allowed two BI people.

        Then, in the second paragraph he expressed his own personal opinion, that the whole league should be open to LGBT, i.e. including BI people.

        Does this help?

          I think the confusion all around is in the specific use and the general use of the word “gay” The general term is used to describe the league as open to all persons who are LGBT not just gay males (specific use). The league rules allow each team to have two self-identifying straight members. If they had declared themselves as bi from the outset, there would not have been an issue since this would be allowed under the general term gay. It is more an issue of semantics than anything else.
