Orlando Cruz announces that he's gay??? Wow! I mean I can't really be surprised in this era we live in today, but can you imagine if this guy gets to an elite level and starts beating top notch opposition? He'll have more problems than President Obama in this per-dominantly heterosexual sport. I mean seeing Cotto on 24/7 share a bed with dude and play with each others "dooky shoot" (as Mayweather put it) is one thing, but having an openly gay fighter on 24/7???

Anyways I'd watch the fight but you wouldn't catch me rooting for a gay fighter to win it lol, nope.

what orlando has done is brave and i commend him. he did not make his life any easier but i give him credit for not living a lie and being true to himself.

i have a sibling and close relatives that are gay and lesbian. it is my honest belief that some/most are born that way. i don't believe it's a choice for them. i get what cshel is saying about scarred chicks that are done dealing with men...that's something different. i agree that you cannot compare what gays are going thru to racial discrimination. u can hide ur gayness...but u can't hide ur race. but that's not to say that what gays/lesbians experience isn't real. i've had to come to the rescue of friends and relatives who were targeted because of their sexual orientation. that shit is not cool. i won't accept it. if someone is a homophope...i have to question them. what is it about homosexuality that would spur a person to hate or act violently? for those ppl i would say they need to look deeper inside to figure that out. i have no problem with an openly gay boxer. as for would i support a guy boxer who can fight? sure, why not?

*side note....there have been several openly lesbian women in boxing who have embraced their sexuality and they can fight. proof that some women have more balls than men. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
