So clearly the temperature has changed in the world on gay rights over the years.. I personally don't consider myself supporting homosexuality per se but I don't understand people who go out of their way (and pockets) to fight it. The way I see it is, it's none of my business and it's not like they aren't going to be gay regardless. I don't eat hot dogs but I'm not spending a bunch of money to stop other people from going to Nathans. (besides they have some good ass fries.)

Anyway, I saw this article and wanted you guys take on it. Orlando Cruz wearing Rainbow colored trunks and pink gloves in the ring. Now I'm all for supporting a cause. I have no issue with him standing up for what he believes in. But in the midst of Jason Collins getting WAY more much exposure than his 3 points per game career average ever warrants, does this strike you as somewhat of a publicity stunt? I mean this guy is wearing almost every gay stereotype possible. Any outfit more gay would include ass-less chaps. Just wanted you guys' take on this matter.

O yea and please to rip me for reading Bleacher Report (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) . It was inadvertent. I absolutely loathe that site.
