Lionel Mandrake: cameroncrazy1984: skullkrusher: However, I think the word "hero" should be reserved for those who put themselves out to help others.

And this is not that...how?

It is that...don't waste your time.


well lookie here, Lionel Mandrake with nothing insightful to add? Color me shocked.

Elmo Jones: skullkrusher: So, yes, I disagree with the willy-nilly use of the word in that I find the connotation important.

I think your bigger problem is with Shapiro; a hypocritical douche, who should have his nuts stomped into paste, by hobos.


well, yeah, he's the one committing the far greater sin. I just think the word "hero" is watered down and the connotations should override the literally technically accurate usage of the word so that's not even a sin, just a slight biatch on my part. Shapiro is using this notion, however, as an excuse to bash a gay dude who just took the plunge. That's indefensible and he can eat a whole bag of penii.

Did you read the SI article? Where did you get from that that he was coming out to make it easier for kids struggling with their identity?
The whole thing was about him coming out for himself. Understandable and happy for him but that's the point.


I'm sorry, but I'm not aware of any connotation of heroism that requires a courageous act that helps others to be entirely selfless.

kieran57: Sgt Otter: Gyrfalcon: jaytkay: Gyrfalcon: Put this guy in a time machine and send him back to Omaha Beach.

He's twenty-nine years old so he probably served in Iraq or Afghanistan.

IF he served, it was as a heroic supply clerk at Ft. Dix.

According to Wiki, he was law student who wrote editorials for the student newspaper calling for increased surveillance of Muslim students.

/Also Zapp Rosdower's catamite.

Your color is orange, and your note is "Zapp Rosdower's Catamite." Thank you for giving me such a wonderful phrase


Catamite is a wonderful word, and needs to be revived.

really? You're not aware of the connotation of a "hero" as someone who puts himself at risk act acts courageous in order to help others?
The war hero braving enemy fire to drag his buddies to safety?
The firefighter heroically risking his life to save a child from a burning building?
A gay public figure coming out and risking his career to help younger people struggling with their identities?

See, Collins didn't do that last thing. He came out for his own mental well being. If that winds up benefiting kids, great but there is no indication that that is what drove his decision - in fact, what he says makes it a personal thing. That's why I don't think "hero" really applies.

Now I've explained it, that's it. As I said, Shapiro is guilty of the far greater sin

Then how can you state that it is "watered down"? If it's always been used that way, how can something be "watered down"? Isn't that, then, just how it is?

yes, I believe it should be reserved for people who put themselves at risk to help others. As I've said several times. I believe this is an example of how it is "watered down" in its usage. Everyone is a hero these days. Honestly daft or just pretending to be... it doesn't really matter.

The Why Not Guy: The swing in public acceptance of homosexuality has happened faster than I ever dared to dream. I went to a large public high school - 448 in my graduating class - and there was "a" gay student. Today high school GLBT clubs march in Pride Parades. It's fantastic, and the icing on the cake is that it's happening too fast for the people who opposed it to gradually shift their view and hope nobody notices.


Even as late as the early 90s, (grunge, The Simpsons were still new) being gay in high school was something no one discussed. There was your standard locker roomtalk like, "Hey, didya hear Brandon likes to suck dicks?" but that was about the extent of it. But the unspoken undercurrent was that while we weren't vicious rednecks, lord help you if you actually came out of the closet.

So no one did.

Then I went to college, and even though it was a large Southern school, everyone was gay. It was incredibly eye-opening for me, a straight man, to be introduced to the idea that gay people are my classmates and live in the dorm across the hall. Up to that point homosexuality was just something I had heard or read about. Aside from the questionable choices in fashion on both our parts, we were the same people. Who knew, right?

After college I bummed around American a Europe with basically zero currency for a bit before eventually settling in the French Quarter. Despite parts of it resembling an overblown frat party, residentially speaking it's among the gayest neighborhoods in America. On some years I was the only straight guy on the entire block. Here is where I went from "meh, gay people exist" to being passionately involved in gay rights. This is important: After having lived there and forming lifelong friendships, every time I saw some assbag 'conservative' ranting about the evil ways of teh homogheys I took it personally. These are my friends you're talking about, you sh*tgargler.

So it was exposure that formed my opinions. And I think that's what happened for many Americans in the later 90s onward...homosexuality went from being a taboo in the media to an actual ratings draw. Suddenly millions of people are getting the idea that gay folks are just, well, regular people. I don't have the data to correlate the media's portrayal of homosexuality with the massive social strides have been made in 15 years, But it seems obvious. So in a way, the bigots who protest every little thing on TV for fear of corrupting our children are correct - the media can play that role. Thing is, it can be used for good and for ill. Kids today aren't any more troubled because there are is a same-sex couple on their screen. In fact, they'll be the generation that is finally so bored with a non-issue that politicians drop it altogether. You certainly don't hear talking heads ranting about miscegenation or whites-only drinking fountains anymore, fringe wingnuts aside, do you?

One more culture of bigotry is nearing its death throes.

For what it's worth, I agree with your general point. For instance, while I appreciate the service of every man and woman who wears the uniform of the United States Armed Forces, I get really tired of hearing that they're all, each and every one, a hero.

In this instance, I think Collins has revealed himself to be a man of integrity and courage, but I would not call him a hero, per se. That's the nice thing about heroes, though - we're each entitled to have our own.

agreed. Some of them are straight up dickheads. Some of them just joined the military because they had no better options. Some have a genuine desire to serve their fellow citizens.

certainly courageous. I can see how this revelation could potentially hurt him in free agent negotiations and relationships with future teammates. I can even see a young kid struggling with his identity thinking of him as a hero. I just don't think the generally applied "hero" label fits in this case. Someone might individually regard Bill Gates as a personal hero but it would be ridiculous to make the general statement: "That Bill Gates - wow, that guy's a hero"

That's the point this pundit misses. No, loving the cock does not make you a hero. But given that pro sports in America is among the great bastions refusing to accept homosexuality as just another part of normal life, it at least makes you ballsy. The fact that it can inspire other athletes to not live openly is the best part.

I've seen some stupid comments on the internet (you don't say?) calling him a twink and all. But for the most part the sports fans in this country don't really care unless it's a huge distraction. That's a valid point, but pro players regularly cause distractions for non-penis reasons. Look at Tiki Barber's childish bullsh*t. Thing is, we're talking about an athlete who wants to be out and live his life openly and honestly. That's a lot different than just whining to the press about your career. In that case, you just keep you dick holster shut and wait until decisions are made before flapping your vagina all over ESPN.

While I appreciate the sentiment, and am extremely flattered, I just do not swing that way.

You know what they call me downstate? The Gaymaker.

This is true. He can point to graffiti in at least 17 different rest stop men's rooms in support of this claim.

though watching 12+ innings of uninspiring baseball doesn't make me feel particularly amorous.

There's a reason I have a shirt that says "This Team Makes Me Drink"

Went to Citi on Saturday and the only enjoyable thing were the craft beers behind our section. And the weather.


the food offerings at Citi are pretty kickass. The baseball offerings, not so much

js34603: Peki: To anyone who doesnt think this guy is a hero:

He is risking physical harm, being ostracized at his place of employment (if not outright let go), and all of the backlash that comes with being a lightning rod, all so that some kid can look up on TV and tell himself, "I can be gay and still play pro ball."

If that's not your def of a hero, then you need to read a few more dictionaries.

Doesn't every gay person who comes out face all those things?


Meh, when I came out I wasn't making myself a lightning rod. Nobody much cares if you're a gay lawyer.

Definitely not lately. And yeah, even though all I had was a double cheeseburger, at least it was a really tasty double.

I've seen you two spar before. I'd offer some advice on interacting with one another but since I like both of you, I don't wanna piss anyone off. However, I will give you this universal guidance:

Are you ready?

Jesus...and to Miami too?

Yikes...

Mets offense has been abysmal of late. Giancarlo Stanton went out with what looked like a fairly significant hamstring injury. That's been the only interesting thing to happen in the past 2 hours or so


Cards are on the opposite end of the spectrum...it's our relievers that absolutely suck.

It's only a little under a month into the season and they blew 5 games already.

This game is never gonna farking end. Marcum coming out to pitch in relief. Glad I got laid off on Friday so I can stay up and watch this shiatshow.

Oh yeah, this is a great way to end my vacation. Watching fifteen innings of medicore-to-bad baseball. This is worse than that time the Bills got beat by the Browns by a score of 6-3.
