Shall we become allies of gay4soccer?



http://gay4soccer.com/allies/

Shall we in the Black and Red United community join Josh Wolff and Clyde Simms in becoming allies of gay4soccer? Brotherly Game has signed up, can't let them beat us to the punch on the field or off it... ;) Especially since DCU was the first team to do an "It gets Better" video. Let's be there to support MLS players who come out and show in yet another way that soccer is the sport of the future. (and my goal is to help make it a more more equal and just future in terms of marriage equality, but at minimum a player should feel comfortable being out) Another idea after the jump...

Also, while we're at it, this year I'm vowing to diplomatically speak up when fellow supporters yell "fag" at opposing players and remind them just how odious a slur it is (there's a reason the English call cigarettes fags...) The same people who wouldn't dream of yelling out the "N" word at blacks have no problem routinely yelling out fag... Even in a testosterone and beer-soaked environment, there's no reason for it. Anyone else care to join me in this awareness-raising?
