Over the past years and months, equal rights in sports have been a hot topic resolved by many sports federations, companies, and nationwide organizations. Social status, gender and race are the main areas protected in such equal rights programs. Equality depending on sex-related orientation however is still a taboo in some cultures and therefore not resolved as much as it should be. Homophobia in sports is still happening in this day and age. There is still a long way for an equal field in sports for all people regardless of their sexual orientation. Members of the LGBT community, specifically the gay population, who play masculine activities such as basketball or soccer have experienced discrimination. These people, however, do not experience discrimination when they are playing sports or activities that are associated with women such as dancing and ballet. I read [url]http://gayexercise.com/uncategorized/discrimination-against-lgbts/[/url] that joining an LGBT-discrimination free gym is a solution to prevent discrimination against members of the LGBT.

And how would a LGBT friendly gym be any fucking different than half the gyms in New York nowadays anyway?

Oh, and how is soccer not associated with women? For fuck's sake, in the US, that's what everyone thinks of soccer. It's a chick sport. Men play football.

Don't think I have ever been in a gym that wasn't full of poofs. Staying in shape seems to be a big part of their lifestyle Phone Post

I discriminate against people that curl in the squat rack, people that read on the treadmill and people that stop a set to text.

I will add more later but I need to burn a cross on the front lawn of an orange dude.

Men play football - the sport that actually involves kicking a ball with your foot the entire match. Sissies dress up up in plastic armour and prance around for a few seconds at a time before resting.

So what you are saying is that European men are as masculine as American women and children?

Gotcha.

Only homosexuals do curls, so you are in fact discriminating against gays

LOL @ CS about Football (USA) Vs Football (Rest of World). Being a Football player (Rest of World) myself, I have to say that I feel it is a great sport. It also happens to be the sport with the highest participation world wide. CS, do you know what number 2 is? JUDO!

Discrimination is unfortunate on any level. It certainly is not limited to the LGBT community. There are many types of descrimination.

TAKU <---gets along with almost everybody.

TAKU,

Good on ya, mate. Getting money for playing a sport, even one like soccer, is cool. I was never able to with American football, just didn't have the body for it. When you're only 183 cm and 95kg in high school, not many universities are gonna look at you, especially when you play offensive line (to compare, the average professional offensive lineman is about 200 cm and weighs in the 135-150 kilo range).
