I sort of understand the homophobic awareness campaign being pushed, but I kinda think it is (again) the AFL desperately trying to be relevant and the enormous media scrum searching for an angle.
Here’s my take.
Some players are gay. Most aren’t. Heterosexuals are presumably taking risks and treating women without due respect. Too many are probably pushing boundaries with unsafe sex. Some may vote green…
I care. But it is a societal matter.
No players need to define allegiance for sexual or political preference.
Here’s a broad template…
-player bashes girlfriend = police business
-player seduces teammate’s girl = club business
-player has boyfriend = nobody’s business.
Is this too simplistic?
