Ohio State and Lavender Jerseys

Postby catapult » Mon Mar 12, 2012 11:25 pm

Hmmm? I posted something about the Ohio State football thing with the Lavender jerseys and someone took it down.

Did I say something wrong?

Can't find it anywhere. Not even among my posts.

I've just finished going back through the mod logs for this forum and the board in general and there is no record of any post being deleted. The only thing I can figure is there was a posting glitch where the post was never written to the database.

Given your posting history I can't imagine anything you posted being objectionable. Please repost if ya'd like.

Thanks for checking. Must have been a posting glitch.

The Scarlet and Gay club at Ohio State got upset about the Ohio State football team making "underperforming" players wear lavender practice jerseys. The Club said that lavender is associated with gays and is considered feminine, so this was offensive.

I never adopted lavender as my personal color!

This is silly and embarrassing.

Here's the original story:

Here's a good commentary on it from a gay Ohio State student.

The Maricopa County prison in Arizona makes all the men wear pink underwear. The guy who runs the prison likes to do things like this because the prisoners hate it.

Seems silly to me but yeah straight guys hate pink alright. :lol:

But is it that pink or lavender tags these football players as gay or just as women? I'm pretty sure it was done to tag them as women and embarrass them that way. By gays saying they are offended, they are saying gays are women, or feminine. Let the women fight that fight if they want to. Unless it is clear that the players were being embarrassed by the lavender because that meant they were being labeled as gay.

I'm beginning to agree with that poster known as "masculinity" who claims there is a third gender - gay - men who act like women. And the rest of us are just guys who likes guys. I really think this is going to become an issue in the "gay community." I don't hate or have a problem with feminine guys - gay or straight. But maybe I'm embarrassed that I am lumped in with them.

Hmmm, I've been wearing lavender for years now and I'm neither feminine nor offended. It's a stupid football thing from stupid people. It'll pass. It makes the jocks feel more manly to emasculate the "lesser" males. That is dumb to me.
