    Isi brought the damn thing here and in doing so made it a legitimate topic of conversation.

    GH, rightly call for the cease and desist from political discussion. I agree with him as the rule of the board clearly states so. Strangely we don't agree on much but let's put this one to an end. This board is for sports and nothing about orientation, lifestyle or gender, I make one exception for the caster semenya case. But those for should not push their agenda here and those against need not use this forum as a an avenue to protest. JUST DONT BRING THE DAMN THING HERE!!!

    Once more let the rules be the adhered to and apply without prejudice.
    Sexual orientation isn't and shouldn't be considered a political issue. It is something that a person has no choice in and is not a "lifestyle orientation". One is simply born that way and to express that people should be treated differently because of it is dehumanizing to those who are different from the mainstream ideals. Ideally, it shouldn't be an issue in sports either, but unfortunately it often is. When a prominent sports figure speaks out against a group of people the way Isinbayeva did,it is violating the spirit of athletics and good sportsmanship. That's neither politics, nor religion.

    Once a year on "free speech day" we open the Free Speech forum and you are allowed to babble on at your heart's content on such subjects.

    An open question to the moderator, GH

    I am kinkdly asking from here on, before you ban one more person or suggest you will. Please state explicitly which rule of the board is been violated. If this is going to become a post what you want as long as I agree then it's not too much what democratic is or even in good spirit.
