"Gay AND homosexual"? Isn't that redundant?
I suppose "gay" could be reverting to its older meaning of "light hearted and happy", or perhaps "homosexual" might include lesbians (where "gay" generally means male, though not always).
In any case, it wouldn't stop me.
However, since I don't ordinarily watch football, I guess the real question would be if I was interested enough to see if there was any difference.
Thing is, several football players have already admitted they were gay and nobody has detected any difference in the way they played. I suppose they could have been hiding it, trying to be particularly hetero on the field.
You really need to check your stereotypes. Otherwise, a very large homosexual man is going to show you just how wrong you really are.
