Gay Soccer player prepared for negative repurcussions in Australia

Adelaide United’s Josh Cavallo has announced himself as the only gay male professional footballer in the world after coming out in an emotional post on social media.

The 21-year-old young Socceroos made the announcement on Wednesday, declaring he was “proud to publicly announce I am gay” in a statement on Twitter.

Cavallo is the first openly gay male athlete to play in the A-League and the only male professional in the world.

He said he wanted to create a safe space for others to come forward.

In his statement, Cavallo said he knew the potential negative repercussions of his announcement but hoped his decision to come out would inspire other closeted male footballers and “show that everyone is welcome in the game of football”.

2 things:

  1. Is anyone buying the bullshit that being gay is in any way detrimental or negative in 2021 Australia? What negative repercussions are they talking about?
  2. The only openly gay male professional in the world? Is there a database for these things or is MSM now so devoid of integrity that they want me to believe that the most popular sport in the world does not have a single gay player?

I used to enjoy sports news

  1. It’s been a very long time since I was last gay. Also, I find that I involuntarily look away whenever I see a rainbow… must be all those bright colours.

    Once upon a time, people were proud of real achievements. You know, like succeeding in business or developing a cure – safe and effective at that – against bacterial infections.

    These days, all it takes is to proclaim oneself to be a member of a favoured minority.

    Thus one can hold his/hers/xes head high over identifying as black, a member of the 63rd gender or being attracted to his own sex.

    Is it any wonder that these people need ‘safe spaces’, so they can bask in the approval of their Twitter tribe?

    Taking the knee trumps the gay card.

    Is it an attempt to deflect from his white privelege?

    Most male leagues have no gay players, at least ones willing to admit it.

    For example the AFL despite all the flag waving, for some reason still has never ever had a gay male player.

    Reminds me of the Little Britain skit , “Im the only gay in the village” or in this case, in sport.

    Who really does care? Has anyone ever stood up and said im coming out as a hetro.

    Being ONLY gay is so yesterday. Needs to get a job with the Matildas. Quick nip and tuck and ready for initiation in the changing room.

    It takes a special type of narcissist to publicly announce intimate details of their sex-life.

    Who cares?

    Well, yes. In ladies sport it is regarded as a career ending act.

    I am struggling to give a damn about his “emotional post”

    I am just shy of 70 years old and since I was 18 I think I have always been in contact gay people as friends, work colleagues and family.

    Does he truly believe he is that special? Sounds like he buying into his own BS drama.
