A look at Ultimate Fighting, its gay-friendly and not so gay-friendly fighters, and its gay fans: “Any guy involved in grappling is the furthest thing from homophobic
in the world. I honestly think it would have no impact
whatsoever with not only our fighters or our fan base. The guys in the
UFC, everybody is so cool, it’s great sportsmanship, everybody has
respect for each other. I honestly, it wouldn’t be a big deal to me and
most of the guys I know in this sport, it wouldn’t be a big deal for
them either.”

Minor league hockey player Justin Bourne: End the gay slurs. "In my days as a hockey player, I did nothing but contribute to hockey's
culture of homophobia and prejudice against gays. I used gay slurs more
times than I'd like to admit. Six months after I left my last
professional locker room, I felt a twinge of regret, followed by a
full-out, stomach punch of regret. And by the time I finished the first
draft of this column, I was disgusted with myself."

Conservative Washington Times highlights Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James T. Conway's opposition to lifting ban on gays in the military: "But Gen. Conway has gone further than others in stating his opposition to a change in policy, according to the former official, who has been privy to private conversations on the matter. "He feels very strongly that [removing the ban] would be disruptive, and he opposes it," said the former official.

Gen. Conway's private remarks stand in contrast to public utterances by other service chiefs, who have restricted themselves to repeating a well-rehearsed mantra: If Congress introduces a bill to repeal the ban, they will discuss it with the chain of command. If Congress changes the law, they will follow the law."
