  1. Letting him near the lgbt community, is simply dangerous to them! The better punishment is to suspend this *n* for few years

      No. Racist remarks make your comments no better than his.

    He clearly needs to improve his bedside manner, but “Sensitivity training”?

    Excuse the French, but WTF??!!

    I’d got further and send the man back to school as a condition of his continued employment. He obviously didn’t pay much attention last time round. A bit of education would do him the world of good.

  4. If properly supervised, I think his seeing at first hand the consequences of words and actions by people like him, will do him a lot of good. He needs to understand why he is part of the problem. We’ll see….

  5. Sensitivity training? I approve. No, wait. Let’s just take him into a darkened room an shoot him the back of the neck. Kindest regards, comrade Stalin.

  6. A day i the life of!

    Earlier in the week we heard bigoted comments, several days later and we hear a different story. I wonder what influenced this change, outrage to his reaction? Job security issues?

    It’s clear the San Francisco 49’s didn’t weren’t happy with the back lash. “A statement from Mr Culliver’s team condemned his comments: “The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris”.

    “The cornerback is to start working with the Trevor Project, a US LGBT suicide prevention organisation, said public relations rep, Theodore Palmer”

    Given his heart and mind didn’t communicate well, a rapid change seems suspiciously orchestrated! Manipulated rather than self motivated. Maybe” this sensitivity training will make him a changed man!
    It certainly won’t make him any less sensitive.”If” he want to change, this might make the better man

    Even so… it would be a long time before I would let him near any Crisis help phone lines!

    1. “Even so… it would be a long time before I would let him near any Crisis help phone lines!”

      I agree on that point… I’d say that he’d certainly need to improve is English language skills!

  7. NO NO NO NO !! Leave him be, i would not want him near my LBGT people, Tell him to fuck off and leave us alone.

      The censorship filters have been removed, then?

      We can finally say AIDS on Pink News and myriad other banned words, which previously rendered many a slaved over posting obliterated into the ether?

      And there was I thinking our slow frog-march into a fully-fledged surveilance state was inevitable…

      Hallelujah! :)

    Hey guys – I think pu are missing he point. This kind of interaction, supervised with professional support will make him change his mind. Xposure to the reality of is diminution usually does.
    Secondly, it seems e USA is reaching tipping point. Could you imagine Alex ferguson making a comment to refute a players casual homophobia, send him o sensitivity training, and publicly state that man united support he lgbt community. 2 days before the fa cp final? Imagine.
    It’s pretty seismic guys.

  9. They say converts can be the strongest advocates. This experience/sensitivity training looks like an excellent method to make him see the error of his ways and perhaps make his next 15 minute interview all about what people should be going to help the LGBT community. Perhaps he isn’t doing it of his own accord but there’s only so long he can act miserable about doing it before he starts to see the reality of the situation

  10. This is great. It’s really bubbling his nose in it. And he might even learn something.

  11. I hope that sensitivity training includes looking at photographs of many of the murdered and maimed men and women.
