Columnist Jim Caple detailed the degree of homophobia that still pervades major-league baseball, and writer Wayne Drehs recently spoke with Brendan Lemon, the editor of "Out" magazine, who wrote in the May issue of the magazine that he is having an affair with a recognizable player from an East Coast franchise.

Of the letters Page 2 received, 75 percent said they would support a gay athlete, 22 percent said they would not and 19 3 percent did not offer an opinion.

The trivialisation of female sexuality, and specifically queerness, allows us to continually erase the existence of gay women. All of these women are visibly and proudly queer, and yet many of the women who find them attractive are equally eager to clarify whether they are or not.
