Do I think he is? Possibly.

Do I give a ****? No.

Homophobia is the new racism and it pisses me off. I'm not gay myself (MARRIED!) but it really peeves me when people are asking if people are gay... it's the same exact thing as racism to me. I know you guys probably don't give a shit if he is or not but it's just a peeve with me.

In other words, carry on but keep it clean and know that this thread travels a fine line, I'm entrusting you as members to keep it on the track it's on right now.

You can't really judge people on how they act anymore, acting gay is the new black. My wife has two guys she works with one I instantly thought had to be gay and thought so for months until we went to a party at the house of one girl she works with and I discover she is engaged to the "gay" guy. I was surprised. The second guy seemed completely normal I sat drinking beer at the bar and joking with him one night for about an hour. At the same house party he suddenly looks at the home owners brother (who was very flamboyantly gay) and comments that he is gay and that the brother was to gay for him. I was surprised the gay guy was straight the straight dude was gay. Metro sexuality and the growing acceptance of homosexuality (they aren't as pigeon wholes anymore and are more likely to have straight freinds)has made it very difficult to tell.

Why does it peeve you if people ask if someone is gay?? And how is that the same as racism?? If someone hates "gays" then i could see it being the same as racism. But if someone is just curious about someones sexual preference why is that the same as hating someone based on their ethnicity or skin color?? iv asked people what their ethnicity is before... wouldnt that be closer to being the same thing as asking someone if their gay or not rather then racism??
The way I see it is it shouldn't matter unless you want to hit on him. I wasn't saying you WERE being racist but I was saying that threads like this have the potential to explode very, very quickly so I was simply saying to keep doing what you're doing and keep it the way it is. It's a very fine line that threads like this travel and the majority of them cross it. To reiterate, I wasn't saying you were doing anything wrong, simply advising that someone might come in and blow a decent discussion all to hell and if someone DOES come in and do something like that then I have to close it if it's not dealt with in a swift way. Was in no way attacking you or anyone in this thread man

This isnt an attack on you... im just curious. Also yeah i agree.. i hope no one comes in here spewing their hatred or w/e. I have nothing against gay people and it wasnt my intention to put gay people on blast when i made this thread. I more just ask because you dont see gay/feminine dudes in the UFC or MMA for that matter. As far as i know there is only 1 openly gay fighter correct?
The only one I could think of is the dude that Herring destroyed in his stare down. Forget his name. Curiosity is okay but all too often it leads to worse things. If Nick wins TUF and then comes out openly I guarantee this board and a whole shit load of MMA sites will filled with hate about it from fans. That's all I'm trying to say is that a lot of times curiosity leads to hate (not necessarily from you).

EDIT: Also, what Toxic said. My wife works with 3 gay dudes. Two of which I NEVER would've known had they not said it to me themselves. The other is pretty flamboyant so he was kind of obvious but the other two are guys I get along with really well and have a lot of the same interests and attitudes as I do.

There is an interview out there with him where he says he was acting gay in the TUF house and on the show to piss off the other fighters.

I'll be back with a link when I find it.

Reserve judgment on what? If he's gay he's gay, if he isn't he isn't, it doesn't make a difference either way and he wouldn't be the first gay MMA fighter.



What's really topic worthy is how bad he choked in his last fight. Got the W but still, jeesh.

Maybe you are gay too and just haven't found out.

BTW, that Maia guy in your sig is crazy good, he beat Sonnen who's the number one contender and beat Marquardt, if Sonnen wins the title then Maia is number 1.
