Tony Bruno a homophobe? Surprise of the day

From Roger Brigham's latest column in the Bay Area Reporter:

A colleague of mine in Equality Coaching Alliance, Helen Carroll, the director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights Sports Project, said, "It is interesting to me that when men in the sports world throw an angry temper tantrum – and I am referring specifically to sports radio host Tony Bruno's comment that, 'most baseball players are pansies' – they still believe that the worst name to call an athlete refers to his sexual orientation as gay. How many negative examples do we have to endure? Perhaps I should say, how many young athletes questioning or coming to terms with their sexual orientation have to be subjected to an action that has been proven time and again to be harmful and detrimental?
