    Default Research on Sexuality in Football

    Dear all,

    I am involved in some university research that is looking at sexuality in football and I would appreciate a few minutes of your time to share your thoughts on this subject. The survey is anonymous and can be found here:

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    The question about welcoming a gay footballer to your club should have more options than just yes or no, I think.

    Personally, I couldnít care less if someone is gay, so I wouldnít welcome or not welcome them. Would depend more on whether they were any good at football or not.

    Or if they could play left-back.

    Thoughts?

    Personally I'm hoping one of the positives to come out of the the Covid-19 situation is that it wakes folk up to how much utter bollocks all this PC shit is.

    Racism, homophobia, sexual discrimination etc. It's all wrong, but the PC brigade need to wake up to what's actually important in life, and resources used for such "projects" should be redirected towards the more practical things in life.

    Stop highlighting the "issue" of gay footballers, and it becomes less of an issue anyway.

    Just my opinion.

    I filled it in but the Yes/No options donít generally capture my thoughts either.

    A footballerís sexuality is largely irrelevant to me. As are many other things about their private life.

    They might have a wife and children, a husband and children, be single, polygamous, polyandrous, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, multi sexual, celibate. Great. Each to their own. Iím not hugely interested in their sexual preferences or the gossip...

    Iím interested in how they perform for my football club. Everything else is secondary.

    Yeah, Iím in agreement with Ravi here.

    I donít care who a footballer chooses to spend their personal time with, or what gender they are; male, female, or attack helicopter. Itís completely irrelevant to football.

    Itís what they do after they jog over that white line five minutes before kick-off, thatís all I care about.

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    Done. As I've said previously, I probably wouldn't recommend a gay footballer be public about their sexuality until after they retire unfortunately. I don't think the players or fans would give a toss now but the press would have an absolute field day and it would be all that they'd be known for.

    Done. The big question being begged here is why should anyone publicise their sexuality?
    I don't bang on about being a necrophiliac do I?
    Why should anyone have to make public their own predilection?
    I find it all dead boring.

    I try to work out which footballers are gay. Just another diversion in the tedium of life. Makes no difference if they are or not, but because the subject is taboo in this most masculine of sports (the lady footballers come out as lesbian and nobody gives a hoot) it creates that inevitable discussion.

    When I was flying, the fact that half my mates were gay was not an issue, no one discussed it because it was perfectly normal and accepted.

    Another reason for my interest is the often ludicrous reasons that bigots find to proclaim that it is 'wrong'! Presumably they still think the Earth is flat.

    from my point of view I’m not arsed about someone’s sexuality honestly not. The only thing that bothers me is if football clubs make a song and dance about having a gay player and putting him centre of a propaganda campaign about how inclusive they are. I just want any gay player to be treated like the straight ones. No stupid pride marches or rainbow laces we know now it’s wrong to discriminate I’m fed up of it all. Get on with the game and I will love that gay player of he bangs 20 in a season.
    Also it’s a bit churlish but has to be thought about logically. If straight players don’t want to shower with gay players then they shouldn’t be castigated. Me personally it wouldn’t bother me but if men can’t shower with woman then that logic follows that straight men may not want to shower with gay men. Some people are insecure just let them be no matter how stupid you and I think it is.

    I will do the survey shortly as well when I’m on my break at the laptop.

    I don't care what a footballer gets up to.

    Unless it is not wearing a poppy in November.

    What a waste of time and money researching this load of bollocks, nobody gives a toss if a player is gay or not.

    You're all over thinking the question, and you should all have answered yes.

    "Would you welcome a gay footballer to the club?"
    - Yes, because I'd like to see more LGBT representation at my club.
    - Yes, why not?
    - No, because we don't want gay people at our heterosexual untainted club.

    The "yes" answer includes the "I dont give a stuff what their home life is like" thought.

    No it doesn't. You've only cited one question.

    They are your opinions. A study is invalid if one person answers for everyone.

    The word "should" in your post reveals the problem with the study. They are leading questions.

    Yes/No is a false dichotomy in this instance.

    Can you do a more useful survey please?
    Perhaps asking whether Warburton was better than Karanka
    Yes or No answers only

    I think we need to know the answer to Camp or Smith first.

    In the context of this survey the answer is obvious.

    No Iím not. I answered No, because I wouldnít welcome a footballer to the club just because heís gay, which seemed to be what the question was getting at.

    How do you welcome a player to a club anyway? Run down to the training ground with a nice casserole or a box of chocolates? The question should have been how I would feel if we signed a gay player, and shouldíve included the option to choose ďdonít careĒ or ďno opinion either wayĒ.

    The world isnít split solely into homophobes and gay allies. Most people donít give a fuck.

    Do I want a money grabbing, lazy gay footballer at my club? No fucking chance

    Do I want a 100%, all in, no fucks given gay footballer playing for my club? Yes

    The gay bit has no relevance its the bit before that proves his worth

    There's racism at football in the UK and right across Europe, and people think a footballer who came out publicly would not suffer any homophobic abuse because 'nobody's bothered'. Good one.

    People can't even stay out of the pub or off the beach when they're been told it could help prevent others people from dying.
