Hawaii Warriors coach Greg McMackin suspended 30 days for gay slur against Notre Dame Fighting Irish - ESPN

I have a hard time articulating my feelings on this. On the one hand, I wholly reject mean-spirited use of homosexual slurs in all their forms and in all their contexts. On the other hand, I am not naive. I know this sort of thing goes on in locker rooms and in team meetings and in football dorms all over the country every day. I don't like it, but homophobia is undoubtedly a deeply ingrained part of the football culture. We have a group of super-macho and very young alpha males on every football team. I imagine there is very little discussion of the works of Gore Vidal or David Sedaris. Which is to say, we would have to be incredibly blind to think that college football locker rooms are areas of progressive thought. It is a place where it is common, probably even essential, to foster a culture of testosterone fueled superiority over others. We all quietly accept this, but no one likes it to be exposed in such an ugly way, for which we can blame Greg McMackin. Are we all hypocrites for accepting this so long as it is kept quiet?
