  1. That’s simply not good enough.

    And the Trevor Project really shouldn’t be such wimps about it.

    Did this bigot face any punishment from his team for his discriminatory beliefs which brought the name of his team and sport into disrepute.

    Why are organisations like GLAAD and the Trevor Project so desperate to support bigots.

    If this bigot had made racist comments I suspect 8 hours of ‘sensitivity training’ would not have been the end of his punishment.

  2. A punishment of 8 hours ‘sensitivity training’ is not going to discourage homophobia.

    I’ll bet this bigot is laughing at how he has escaped any sort of censure for his stupidity and bigotry.

  3. So someone could say something like that, and then just say “I didn’t mean it”, and everything is suddenly okay?

    The guy is a homophobe, he made that clear in his unscripted and unguarded honest comments.

    As I said before, the only thing worse than a bigot, is a wimp bigot who doesn’t have the balls to stand by his opinion and face the debate.

    The man is doing all of this to save his career and prevent the continued bad publicity. If anyone thinks otherwise then they are the most naive idiot in the room.

    1. Or perhaps they’re the people who have the faith to think that some people have the capacity to change rather than labelling someone a bigot for life for a single comment they made.
      Why do some people always assume the worst in someone’s intentions? Is there any need other than to fuel your desire to continue your use of the B word?

      1. Perhaps he has the capacity to change.

        But through his homophobic bigotry he brought his team and sport into disrepute.

        And he went unpunished for it.

        That speaks volumes.

  4. Maybe he should have been punished but this is a happy ending of sorts. If he has been enlightened by working at the Trevor Project then some good has been done. People can change. You can’t campaign against homophobia and refuse to accept people who have a change of heart.

    He made one slip up in his life and he’s trying his best to make up for it. In the U.S. where intolerance and bigotry still go unchallenged in many places, he could have chosen to ignore the criticisms and gone on being a homophobe and his career probably wouldn’t have been effected any. But he’s clearly repented for his actions and is continuing to help with the Trevor Project even after this. If we want others to change, we have to be willing to forgive when someone honestly seeks forgiveness. Just compare Chris Culliver’s response to Tim Tebow who is still going to speak at homophobic organizations and there’s no comparison between the two. People make mistakes in life. He’s trying to make up for it and move on and we in the gay community hould too.

  6. He told an interviewer: “I don’t do the gay guys man… I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff.”

    He’s obviously very uneducated, in need of English lessons and diversity training.
