wnba player sophia young tweets out against gay marriage

In the sports world, the WNBA is WAY ahead of everyone else in terms of their support for the LGBT community, but apparently not everyone is on board.

The city of San Antonio is currently in a heated debate over the possibility of offering nondiscrimination protection for individuals based on their sexual orientation, and one local basketballer decided to voice her disapproval for the move.

Sophia Young took to Twitter to share her opinion on the matter and wrote:

Rose McGowan was spotted on her way out of her gym in El Lay this morning.

It was a foggy, overcast morning, but that didn't stop Rose from strutting her stuff to the gym to get her fitness on!

The paps snapped her on her way out of the gym and caught her wearing an amazeballs shirt.

It read: "Some dudes marry dudes. Get over it."

Ha! That's HIGHlarious! And true!

Thanks for supporting the cause and helping fight the good fight!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationFootball

We previously mentioned that an NFL player for the Baltimore Ravens was verbally attacked by a politician for supporting gay rights.

Brendon Ayanbadejo is one of the most outspoken gay rights advocates in professional sports… and he's not even gay!

So he was def pumped when Maryland legalized gay marriage. Even during a recent game, some players from the Raiders went out of their way to thank him for supporting gay rights.

Marriage Is Good For The Mental Health Of Older Gay Men

Gay Marriage good for mental health

Life is hard. If you're an older gay man though, it might actually be a little harder.

Not only are gay and bisexual men over 50 stressed about aging and their finances, but they've also lost a lot of friends to the AIDS epidemic along the way and have had to deal with discrimination of their sexual orientation their entire life — much of which occurred before homosexuality was as accepted as it is now.

What could make life a little easier for these fellas? Unfortunately, it's the one thing that the majority of the country stubbornly refuses to allow — a healthy marriage!

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health has found having a committed and legally recognized spouse or domestic partner helps alleviate stress.

Richard G. Wright, Ph.D., a Williams Institute scholar, said in a statement:

David Tyree Comes OUT…

Filed under: Gay Gay GayFootball

Against gay marriage!

Did you think we were going to say something else? Ha!

Seriously though, this is HUGELY disappointing, especially in light of all the athletes and professional sports teams showing HUGE support for marriage equality.

Former New York Giants wide-receiver David Tyree has recently shown his support for anti-equality organization National Organization for Marriage in an interview (above) by expressing his opinion that gay marriage will lead to anarchy, saying:

"If they pass this gay-marriage bill…this will be the beginning of our country sliding toward, it’s a strong word but, anarchy. … A marriage is honorable in the sight of God between a man and a woman meant so that you can continue to procreate…."

Anarchy? Hmm…not so sure about that one, but every one has a right to express their opinion, no matter how misinformed it is.

Just how misinformed is his statement? Well, we're pretty sure Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont aren't going up in flames as a result of this "anarchy" that has allowed same-sex marriage.

Also, he states that "marriage is the only relationship that actually mirrors a relationship with God." We're guessing he doesn't know that Catholic priests are not allowed to get married and they seem to have a pretty good relationship with the big guy.

Throughout the interview, the football player continues to ramble on using religion as the basis for his reasoning that gay marriage should not be legal, which is probably the worst argument anyone make against gay marriage or any kind of public policy for that matter.

We certainly respect any person's religious belief and respect one of the core principles our country was founded on that allows us to worship freely. However, we CAN NOT respect religious belief as any kind of basis for legislation in this great nation, especially when that legislation takes away the FREEDOMS of others!

This man, like many others, needs to wake up and realize that not everyone has dedicated their lives to God like he has and his argument lacks all kinds of logic.

Check out the interview above to hear what the man has to say, but consider this: If we start using religion to decide the rights of others, we will be taking a giant leap BACKWARDS because we will be no better than the country we FLED from centuries ago because of religious persecution!

Johnny Weir NOT HAPPY 2012 Olympic Chief Of Mission Is Anti-Gay

Filed under: Gay Gay GayJohnny WeirOlympics

Johnny Weir speaks out against Olympic Chief in Mission

Former Olympic gold medalist Peter Vidmar, who also happened to support Proposition 8 and wishes to deny same-sex couples the right to marry, has been selected as chief of mission for the 2012 U.S. Olympic team.

While we're sure there are plenty of people who are bothered by someone who represses equality representing the U.S. in the Olympics, openly gay figure skating champion Johnny Weir is speaking out.

He recently told newspapers:

"It's wrong. I certainly wouldn't want to be represented by someone who is anti gay marriage. It isn't just about marriage, it is being allowed equal rights as Americans. The fact this man who is very publicly against something that may be represented on the American team is disgraceful."

Well said, Johnny!

Vidmar is so publicly against gay marriage that he donated $2,000 in support of Proposition 8 which ended the right to marry for gay and lesbian couples in California.

Members of the United States Olympic Committee said they were unaware of his involvement in Proposition 8, however, the news hasn't changed their decision.

Vidmar says that despite his beliefs, influenced by his Mormon religion, he respects "the rights of everyone to have the relationships they want to have."

If he TRULY respected the rights of people, we don't think he would donate several thousand bucks to prevent those people from attaining the rights EVERYBODY deserves.
