This is incredibly hard to watch, but worth it. I almost want to make a thread for it. Some of you may have seen it, it's been out for a while.

What if homosexuality was the norm? And heterophobia was real?

Love is All You Need? full length movie.mp4 - YouTube

I'm pretty damn depressed after watching it. But I truly feel that we're turning a corner. Even the vast majority of people who are against same-sex marriage wouldn't be even the remotest bit as horrible as the bullies, parents and teachers in this video.

If its a non-event it's an event.

If its an event then it's an event.

i think you are right

A non-event is an anticipated or highly publicized event that either does not occur or turns out to be anticlimactic.

I thought the NHL was going to announce an openly gay athlete.

No matter, this is great. It shows a gay man doesn't have to be effeminate and can be as tough as the other guys are. Hence why the gay stereotypes are worthless.

I can not speak to anyone's motivations

but strategically, this seems to be advantageous for him.

it would be nice, if there is a bonus for being (openly) gay

I highly doubt that he did this in order to try to secure another NBA team. If you read the SI article he just seems literally exhausted from not being able to be fully himself publicly, and in the NBA. He also mentioned the marathon bombings, how they reminded him how life can end in an instant. So why not live truthfully.

He seems very intelligent and capable, if he doesn't get on another team he could easily do anything else in life. He's already played for 12 seasons. I think it's great for him, and it's about time that pro sports catch up.

He says

I realized I needed to go public when Joe Kennedy, my old roommate at Stanford and now a Massachusetts congressman, told me he had just marched in Boston's 2012 Gay Pride Parade. I'm seldom jealous of others, but hearing what Joe had done filled me with envy. I was proud of him for participating but angry that as a closeted gay man I couldn't even cheer my straight friend on as a spectator. If I'd been questioned, I would have concocted half truths. What a shame to have to lie at a celebration of pride. I want to do the right thing and not hide anymore. I want to march for tolerance, acceptance and understanding. I want to take a stand and say, "Me, too."

I guess if I had shitty morals I'd want to distance myself personally from them as well.

Interesting that you want to inject yourself into other people's personal lives, but then cry foul when you're called out on it. They call that having your body of Christ and eating it too
