Can't say I'm surprised unfortunately, but man oh man, are they overdoing the pc on this gay rights issue subject thing. This is just absurd. A lot of people are outraged that he got fined for this and I think more than rightfully so. No homo isn't even bad, my goodness.

 

Now the MFers he pulled out the other hand obviously makes sense, but c'mon man.

Yeah, but the main story here is him getting fined for the "no homo" comment. The other one can't really be argued, but "no homo"? C'mon now, are you serious?

^ True, but regarding the "no homo" incident specfically, this was before social media took off as much as it has today and sadly over-sensitized the media in general & the pc movement more than ever.

What is the big deal?

 

Jason Collins comes out and says he is gay, and everybody calls him a hero and a warrior.

 

Why can't Hibbert say he is straight?

Too many people say 'no homo' for anything now, it's anything but an insult.

 

If just saying the adjective 'homosexual' is bad then damn.

Next thing you know, some media member asks someone, "are you feelilng okay/alright"? Person responds, "yeah, I'm straight".

 

FINE!!!

 

I wish I was kidding, but you never know. That's how bad it's getting.

ok ill be honest
since im a nobody and nobody cares about my opinion

seriously voicing out about gay rights has been really out of hand specially for athletes or well known ppl

its like they HAVE to be in favor of gay marriage or else its a crime and be all over the news

possibly lose their fans or sponsors or things like that

 

i have gay friends and family members

i love them and id take a bullet for them

but i am against gay marriage and thats my own honest opinion

 

the only worse thing that can happen to me is be banned from this forums but thats it lol

 

hibbert's "no homo" remark shouldn't have been a fine

but his cussing should

Wow that bull[expletive]. Its basically common slang now to say that and its just a joke. Yea because what he said is probably offending so many gay people. Guarantee the only people "Offended" are people who are trying to be offended. Also lts remember this saying "no homo" get a $75,000 fine for some thing that doesn't even effect the game but flopping only got lebron $5,000 which actually hurts the game. Somethings wrong here.

So shouldn't Jason Collins be fined then? After all, he is offending straight people. NBA logic is so stupid IMO.

He's not a hero but let's not pretend that being gay in sports is an easy thing that doesn't come with potential backlash behind closed doors

Saying you are straight or gay aren't the same things. There is no prejudice against straight people. Being straight is socially normal, it is what the majority are. The majority population are heterosexual

This logic you're flinging around is asinine. Nonsensical.

It's not difficult to announce the sky is blue, but it is difficult to announce the world isn't flat to those who believe if you sail far enough you'll fall off the edge

You're missing the point. This isn't the NBA being PC, this is the NBA protecting its ass. In most cases it's better to air on the side of caution than let it play out and have to retroactively fine someone and then deal with media backlash for not punishing players

Obviously to us "no homo" is everyday stuff. To a business it's a tightrope

You really think hibberts coach and agent were ok with him saying it? No they had him apologize

Why? Because he is an athlete, he is held to a higher standard, you cannot put an athlete on the same level playing field as yourself. You can use no homo and mean it totally innocently. An athlete says it and it's broadcast to millions. It's different.

75k is excessive, but with him issuing an apology it reminds you that this is a business and because of that you must hold yourself to a higher standard of speech and class
