    How wonderful it is to see a straight sportsman doing this, and a handsome one too! Thank you, Ben Cohen!

    is it common knowledge that ben apparently has a substantial hearing problem? in over 2 years of following him, and even communicating via the web it has never come to my attention before.

    @BANDANAJACK, that was the first time I ever heard of it too. That makes him even more awesome in my eyes.

    I also LOVE the fact that he doesn’t feel the need to brandish his hetero credentials in every interview the way most other straight men who take a stand for gay rights do.

    Cohen is an amazing man and a hero of the highest order; greater than any monarch or medal can bestow.

    Deaf? I had no idea. What an awesome guy. So sorry about his Pa.
    He is a great man.

    This guy is a shining example of what it will take to stop homophobia and bullying. Those who stand by when others bully are complicit in the bullying. Live and let others live. Judge less, live more!

    What a luck for those youngsters to have him talking to them and in a strong, personal and human way! What a lighthouse in worldwide sports!
