    Not really sure how someone's sexual orientation moxes with a sport.
    Besides. The athletes are there to participate in thier winter sport.
    So how does anyone know who's gay or straight?
    Go perform your sport and come home.

    hahahahahahaha.... right if the gays were trying to impress Soviet closet gays you wouldn't think they pick the winter time ;-)

    you know everything is scenes in this country is about cramming the gay lifestyle down everyone's throat no pun intended, but I think when they try to do that over in Russia its going to be a hard sell...( that pun was intended)

    @bsking yea I just don't get this sense of urgency in that we must all except the gay lifestyle as the new norm.
    I also don't understand why the hell we give 5% of America (gays) so much power.
    It seems to me that we have lumped all the minorities into one group which in turn makes them the new majority, if you can follow what I'm saying.

    Seemingly they have a problem with "holding hands or other public gestures of affection between same-sex couples."

    @Thegrif it is the double standard.

    Gays, Hispanics, Blacks, Native Americas, et al want equal rights, but want to be given special accommodations at the same time. They want if both ways.

    They key of the Left is to cause disruption by empowering the minority and removing power from the Majority.

    That is translated as "fundamental transformation".

    I wish some athlete would have a presser and just announce "After much thought and prayer.... I have decided to come out as a straight athlete". And everyone would say 'So What?"...

    Exactly........

    If you are an openly gay athlete you are forbidden to compete at the Winter Olympics in Sochi. So What? Well, that means the best athletes may not be competing in every sport, which means the games are kind of sham. I'm not even sure how they are going to do figure skating, unless the participants are all in the closet.

    @happyhedon Or maybe they can keep their sex life private. Seems to me they have a choice, compete as an athlete, period or compete as a GAY athlete. I would want to compete and win as the best athlete, not get the sympathy vote because I happened to be gay. Works for us normal heterosexuals. We don't talk about it or whine about not having enough orgasms or whatever, we just live our lives. Gays may want to try that for a change.

    @Tralee 100% Correct. How many are showing themselves as openly straight ?? Where you put your genitals should never be a description of your description as an athlete.

    I doubt there are any that describe themselves in any publication as "proud to be a straight Olympian". Judge on character and talent - and stay out of the bedroom for the description of your existence.

    @happyhedon @tralee Why do you assume that gays are the best athletes? That's a very strange notion. Athletic performance and sexual preference have nothing to do with one another.

    WELL SAID!! Google decides to make its issue about supporting gays instead of showing support for our AMERICAN TEAM. The result of the bullsht liberal agenda is division. Not just about gays but every possible point of separation. Race, gender, age, religious views, sexual orientation, geographical location,...any point where upon a line can be drawn.

    @Slowmo wow, homosexuals being murdered and beaten in Russia and all you guys can do is sit there and cry about your country not getting enough recognition. define narcissism. if america wanted to stand up for liberty (the very thing it should have a source of pride in) then it NEEDS to stand up for gay rights. sadly, america on it's very own soil can't even seem to get that right. America should just go home, it's far too drunk to pretend it's got anything important to say. and that's abundantly clear with a comment like yours.

    @Paultron lmao who said anything about getting recognition?? Suggesting that we support ALL of our athletes who are there representing America is somehow "crying about our country not getting enough recognition"?? And, people get beaten and killed everyday for all kinds of reasons. Gay people aren't the only ones. But that's the only group you want to talk about. Talk about a "narcissistic" level of "crying about not getting enough recognition".

    "100,000 Christians beaten, imprisoned, or killed in 2013

    Where's your outrage, Captain High and Mighty?? Where's Google's trendy illustration?? 100,000...is NKorea holding 50,000 homosexuals in prison camps?? Don't come at me calling me names because I'm not demanding everyone make it their life's mission to demand everyone agree with two guys sticking each other in the ass. I'll support our team in America whether they're gay or straight. It's not about who they sleep with. They're not there to represent a sexual orientation. They're there for the OLYMPICS...remember??

    @Slowmo nope, you're crying because you're not getting enough attention, stop dressing it up like it's something it's not. one of the most persecuted groups in the history of the world.... but you want a piece of the attention. and for your crying about the christian's again, 100,000 you say? gee, the christian's sure are persecuted world wide arn't they? plz tell me who has been dominating the world for the better half the millennium? that's what i thought, cry elsewhere. it's a tragedy no doubt, but i find myself less moved by it for a variety of valid reason. i don't like that people are suffering, but you only seem to care BECAUSE theyre christian, and that's because you only care about who you identify with. american and christian. screw the rest eh? if you were muslim and arab you wouldn't care you would be upset about that group being punished. very tribal and ethnocentric.

    For the Love of G-d! There are people out there getting murdered every single hour, of every single day for just being of a different religion, or even of the same race, but of a different tribe as often happens in Africa, and Google is promoting this to the No. 1 issue of the day? Give me break! This is similar to that idiot rogue cop arresting a firefighter for life-saving efforts and not leaving victims be to move his engine so people wouldn't be inconvenienced by being stuck in traffic. Google is more worried about 'the people stuck in traffic than about the actual victims being given assistance'. That's what it boils down to!

    Has anyone ever stopped to think that this constant beating of the dead horse and his grave on this topic just might blow back in your faces and create animosity among those who are currently on the fence or indifference? I know I'm sick to death of hearing about it while more pressing issues that affect EVERY PERSON in this country go largely ignored. More smoke and mirrors to divide people. Create an illusion of some sort of discrimination or racism or sexism and distract the lemmings with it that while our freedoms are robbed from us in broad daylight.

    I've said it 100 times, but I don't care who's humping who. It's not my concern, nor anyone elses. One doesn't have to condone or actively support someone's lifestyle, everyone is entitled to their own religious and personal beliefs, but they don't have the right to dictate to others how to live, either (so long as it is not infringing on another's right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness). Separation of church and state is clear on this issue IF it is being argued against from a religious viewpoint./soapbox

    Google is also stifling competition, and giving infomaton to the NSA, their YT commenting system is a censorship heaven. How much more will the American people suffer this sort of abuse, this crony corporatism? Rise up people we need to unite and fight against these monopolies.
    It's great that they are for gay rights, but what about our right to privacy? To free speech? It doesn't seem to apply to the internet anymore.

    Skewed priorities. People are being systematically murdered in places like Syria, Egypt and central and southern Africa due to their religion, or race, or national origin, or tribal affiliation, and you guys move openly gay athletes not being able to compete in Sochi to the head of the list? That's 'folked up'.

    @Zazziness We appear to be treating this as the #1 issue of the day and by contrast, we are being extremely polite, mild and restrained when it comes to even China's treatment of its dissidents. All I am saying is: A Little Perspective. What I think is happening here is that this very politically-savvy administration is aiming to make the situation appear much worse than it is, create a new 'class' of political refugee: Those being 'persecuted for being gay' and then begin to issue Refugee visas to anyone in any country that claims he/she is being persecuted for being gay. Yet another bumper crop of Democratic Party voters. Hopefully, most people here will read I am NOT opposed to equal rights for everyone. I do find EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE the hyterics, histrionics , WHINING over openly gay athletes not being able to compete in Russia at a time when people are losing their lives just because they are a different religion, color, national origin, race, tribal identity, political belief than a ruling or dominant faction. This is all very offensive. It smacks of hidden political agenda to import more Democratic Party voters, just as those 'extended Laser Visas' to Mexican citizens, does. I'm an Independent. I'm not bamboozled due to any blind, lock-step party ideologies. I see the agendas and both sides and that's why I am ALWAYS advocating more, and powerful 3rd, 4th and 5th national parties. This 2-party game has got to stop.

    I have never seen Google make a homepage "Doodle" in support of the Christians who are persecuted each year around the world. I have never seen Google support ANY religion where its advocates are persecuted. Instead, they protest an anti-propaganda/anti-indoctrin ation law of a foreign country by taking a "rainbow" Olympics "Doodle" out of frustration for what it assumes is "bigotry." It is interesting how Google has a "preference" of this particular issue over other truly persecuted beliefs or ideologies.
  • #200

    @Keyjo - No, I didn't say that. I am speaking of the hypocrisy of Google for selectively choosing which groups that they will campaign on behalf. Google will support homosexual activism because it aligns with the views of their board and editors.

    I guess that it goes along with the fact that Google is located about a couple of miles from my house in the San Francisco Bay Area (and located just a short walk from Politix/Topix). Sadly, people in the San Francisco Bay Area mistakenly believe that they are "mainstream."

    I don't suspect that Google will act on behalf of persecuted Christians who literally die for their religious faith. Heck, Google won't even make a "doodle" marking Christmas in the United States. For them, Jesus isn't even newsworthy as a philosopher or activist on the scale of Gandhi.

    @ccchhhrrriiiss
    "Selectively choosing!?" But don't you and everyone else selectively choose what to support or not? You would perhaps show your support for Christianity. Your reluctance to support equality does not make you a hypocrite, does it.
    And it does seem to me that I have seen Christmas themed doodles headline Google.
  • #212
    !
    @Keyjo - Don't kid yourself. I believe in equality. However, the push to redefine the gender specificity of the "marriage" type of civil contract is NOT the same as "equality." I find the accusation that I don't support the notion of homosexual "marriage" the same as "homophobia," "bigotry" or some disbelief in "equality" is nonsense.

    Secondly, I am simply pointing out the SELECTIVITY of Google. They carefully choose the groups that they wish to support. They ignore truly persecuted groups and push a phony "controversy" involving the anti-propaganda law in Russia. Yes, it is phony...and a method by which, ironically, Leftists can push homosexual "rights" via popular media...again...and again.

    As for Christmas: Actually, they have had "holiday" doodles on Google over the last decade. Personally, I wouldn't mind doodles that celebrate Hanukkah, Ramadan and Christmas celebrations. Unfortunately, Google isn't exactly "open-minded" enough to care about people who are persecuted for their faith or political ideology. In fact, some of their board members and recipients of their appreciation and support join in the effort to mock, ridicule or vilify people for their moral, religious, cultural, traditional, sociological or political views.

    @ccchhhrrriiiss
    Everyone chooses which issues they wish to support and which, not. Google is not obligated, or even reasonably expected to present "point/counter-point. "
    That's like expecting to see an Obama sticker and Romney sticker on the same rear bumper!

    @Food4thoughts Lol as enticing as that sounds, I'll need my eyes and ears to watch the games. Our athletes will need extra support this year. There will be some that will be cheering on foreign athletes to beat out our own just because of their sexuality. How sad is that?

    Pretty sad...but I think of athletes like Jessie Owens and what he had to endure to win 4 gold medals and all of the Nazi's that rooted against him. I'm sure that added fuel to his fire as I hope will be the case for our proud gay athletes as well.

    No one is forcing you to go there.

    Google is dependent on its viewers for its revenue stream. If it took a position that was so politically unpopular it would lose business. It is acting in its own self interest.
    This country does not care much about the slaughters that are occurring in other parts of the world. They may be more important, but, they are not politically viable. Reality beats philosophy, every time.

    This is all well and good, maybe Google will next time take a stand for the well being of the children in Syria who are being tortured, raped and murdered. Just sayin' there really is something a bit more pressing to attend to than spreading the word that Gay is Great and normal.
