LGBT in sports.
My two cents, hoping for understanding.
What in the world is wrong with people?
People wonder how a gay person can be in a shower, with a room full of football players?
Shechaim Ohjieshan’s Story Time!
Lets back up a few years, O.K. we need a lot of years, back in my navy day’s.
My first encounter with a gay person was on my first ship.
Know this now, we became great friends.
Where talking about the 1960’s, I cannot believe that people are still in the 60’s mindset even today?
He started out in 1st division and the men started from day one playing all kinds of tricks on him and more.
One day while at sea about half way to Scotland our captain held an onboard meeting of all hands, all that were not on duty, I was the physical-Ed instructor so I was on the upper deck bridge with the officers.
The captain said a few words then introduced this person, no name please, not necessary, to speak.
He stood there scanning the crew for the longest time, then he said, “What makes any of your think that you are good enough to be my kind of friend” turned and walked away followed by our captain and the officers, leaving me up there alone?
I scanned the crew, while they were still at attention and also walked away without dismissing them, you see until that time I did not know him or what was going on up forward.
One hour later the captain dismissed the crew!
Today ships have men and women and I might add gays onboard, so what?
Today women play football and so do gays, so what?
That day I shook his hand and thanked him for being a brave grown up man, the captain transferred him to my 2nd division and he and the crew worked good on ship and enjoyed liberty without another problem.
Michael Sam may get picked up by Dallas Cowboys
Maybe Sam is not a good enough football player?
Well, we are all going to get the chance to find out soon.
If I was a St. Louis Rams player, I would be hoping that the team never has to play his team!
