When you get in the shower, ever muscle hurts, the water stings like hell on those turf burns, and your only focus is getting off that damn pre-tape wrap that is stuck to your skin. I understand that this may be scary for the straight guys, and that’s OK.Just getting clean, getting dry, and putting on deodorant are your only top priorities. What’s not OK is coming at the gay athletes from a negative place. Athletes are professionals that take their job very seriously, and the locker room is no different.I loved my life there except for one not-so-small problem: Cedarville and the other surrounding areas are some of the most homophobic parts of the country.Growing up I was inculcated with the belief that "gay" automatically meant "going to hell." Two years ago I told everyone I was against homosexuality, even hated gay people. I uttered hatefulness out of necessity to fit into the community, but I always felt like my words would come back to haunt me.Never mind that they were like my brothers and weren’t my type; I just wanted nothing more than to rinse off the turf and sweat and get some Gatorade and grub. I don’t think your remarks about gays not being accepted in the NFL, and being nervous about being the shower with a gay teammate come from a place of hate. Look back to when the first woman tried to run the Boston Marathon, when Jackie Robinson entered Major League Baseball, or when female reporters finally gained access to professional male athlete locker rooms.Let’s take a look at what a locker room and shower look like with 100 football guys in it. I loved my teammates, but let’s be honest, not every football player looks like they can be on the cover of "Men’s Health." Imagine a big room that has sweaty, nasty workout clothes hanging everywhere, tape and other garbage lurking in corners, and a toilet area that doesn’t exactly smell like roses. And when you get in the shower, all you think about is avoiding icy cold water, pee in the drains (don’t lie, you do it too), and the backside of some offensive lineman that desperately needs bathing. I think they come from a place of fear, lack of experience and insecurity. Having openly gay teammates will be a first for many players in the upcoming years.
I played high school football for four years, and college football for three, and I was out to my teammates in college.

If there is a country in Europe that has changed much in just a few years towards LGBT rights and equality, that country is Portugal.
But this advance was not done without its ups and downs, with the scale pending between politics and public opinion. Spartan military training separated groups of men together for long periods of time and it is believed that they were encouraged to engage in sexual activities with each other so they would fight stronger and harder for their partners.
