Thread: Blackpools Jake Daniels comes out as gay

  1. #21

    Re: Blackpools Jake Daniels comes out as gay

    Pleased that the lad has the courage to announce his sexuality, and in time this kind of thing will be the norm. People shouldn’t have to feel different and ashamed of their sexuality. Hopefully this will encourage more and more sportsmen and women to be comfortable as to who they are and not hide it.

    Why do you have to always go over the top with the virtue signalling?

    Minority and marginalised groups getting visibility are a good barometer for the amount of thick attitudes still present in English League football grounds.

    As soon as the knuckledraggers get all lairy they'll be rounded up and banned.

    There are a lot of incredibly thick feckwits watching football that's for sure

    You donít want to be mate, it is the most bigoted thread I ever seen, split along religious beliefs. There are no neutral comments, theyíre either supportive or vitriolic religious venting.

    Letís step back a minute. I thought we were after inclusion not segregated sections for different kinds of people/colour etc. It may have been said in jest but Iím not that sure it was.

    Cheers - very reason I'm not on there due to the number of keyboard warriors and not on Facebook either as i don't want to know what the genius child has done next or what food Debbie from Derby has had for tea

    I can assure you that the idea of a pink , black or womens area at CCFC was a complete piss take

    Although I would put the tory scum in the car park

    He is the oldest looking 17 year old I’ve ever seen.

    Fair play to the lad, very gutsy decision for a 17 year old. I hope the knuckle draggers leave him alone. Any that don't should see a hefty ban and criminal charges.

    Saw it mentioned above about things like rainbow corner flags etc. Not everyone who gets frustrated with what they see as 'virtue signalling' will also be homophobes, although obviously there will be a crossover of the 2.

    I'd hope people are supportive over the summer, hopefully others will also come out and be true to themselves. Hopefully by next season it just seems normal and people don't see it as anything unusual

    Its 2022, I dont think its the big deal it would have been say 10 / 20 years ago. Hes only 17, so grown up in a generation where being gay is no longer taboo and its a lot more acceptable to be who you want to be. There will always be haters and homophobics, but id say they will be more and more in a minority as time goes by.

    Best of luck to him, hopefully it will encourage others in the game who have felt they have had to hide their sexuality to come out too.

    I agree. I don't think it's an issue at all. Attitudes have changed and the laws have changed too, so even some of what may have been seen as the more 'legitimate' reasons to discriminate (such as parents fearing having no grandchildren or not seeing their child get married) have been swept away too.

    We discussed this before and I think the issue in football is more in the changing room, highlighted by issues such as this: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sp...w-colours.html

    Quite ironic, given the blokes surname..

    Anyway, as with everyone else, I am sure we all wish the best to Jake Daniels in his personal life and every happiness.

    Social media is the issue rather than the dressing room imo.
