|'Gay Footballers? No, the Fans Wouldn't Have It'|
Wherescounago- Kuqicoo has basically nailed it. I agree entirely that people who wish to keep their lives and relationships private should be able to do so...gay or straight. But the point is that, at the moment, it's not necessarily a choice. I am absolutely sure that there are gay people in football (and indeed in other walks of life) who would like to be able to be open with their colleagues and take their partner to the awards do or the Christmas party or around the pitch on the last day of the season or whatever it might be but feel that they can't.
If you value people's choice to keep their private lives private then you surely have to value the steps we need to take that would show it to be a genuine choice and, in this case, that means speaking out about the need for acceptance for gay footballers. Once there is that acceptance, those who choose to remain private are making a personal choice. At the moment, that is not the case.
