    It would be an issue for all the crackpot Christians though.

    If the fear is of humans acting in a sexual manner with each other, and that the impulse can be controlled or tolerated, when will we dispense with having gender-specific change rooms? When will it be ok for “just humans” to change together? Or are we still hiding behind the notion of preventing pregnancy?

    I worked at the Y for years – and sex happens in any change room. Pregnancy is more of a challenge…

    I’m confused. Since when has it been illegal to ask people about their sexuality?

    Oh, employment laws. I see now.

    They’ve already got gay members in their teams and in the locker rooms – to imagine only straights ever joined as football players is absurd.

    Nobody knew Gareth Thomas was gay until he retired – they worked alongside him without any knowledge.

  6. It is good that sports professionals are saying this. Male sports culture can be so irrational – men often indulge in blatant sexual ‘horseplay’ in the changing rooms on the assumption that everyone is straight, but are horrified at the idea of sharing facilities with a gay guy. As usual, it’s not actually about what people do – it’s about who is defined as an alien outsider.

    what amazes me is that its always the “hetero” men who think we all want to have sex with them ..because they walk around looking at women as sexual objects ..
    I myself have seem numerous naked men and have not been that interested ..
    its a shame that in 2013 we are still discussing this .
    with the high incidents of sexual abuse and rape directed mainly toward women .. changing rooms and locker rooms should be kept gender specific
    not that all men should be grouped together as sexual deviates but we all know it only takes one such act to demoralize the victims
