Not "gay enough" for softball?

Petite Valentine Petite Valentine
Don't know how I missed this SEXIS article when it was posted over a month ago.

"...the three plaintiffs in the case said that they were humiliated by having their sexuality questioned and examined by the NAGAAA. The organization ultimately determined that they were not “gay enough,” and nullified their team’s second-place finish in the tournament.

From the pov of this heterosexual married female, the NAGAAA is in the wrong. I think we already have enough trouble with inclusivity in this country, and this only makes it worse. And where does the NAGAAA get off telling bisexuals they're not gay enough? Is there a quota?

What do other members of the EF community think about the NAGAAA's stance and/or the lawsuit?

Words cannot describe what I'm thinking right now. First, I wasn't aware the Softball was a gay thing. Otherwise I, and the rest of my old PE class, would be gay. Granted, it was an all boys' school, so some things were bound to go on, but I think not because of soft ball. Unless it's an actual rule (and a dumb rule at that) that people must be absolutely, 100% gay to join their clubs, then they've not a leg to stand on.

NAGAAA stands for North American Gay Amateur Athletics Alliance. They're not saying softball is gay in general, they're talking about their specific league.

The sticking point here are their members who identify as bisexual. The league investigated the players and then deemed them "not gay enough" and essentially nullified everything the team did. Now, if the NAGAAA did not allow bisexual members, I would say it was a violation of their rules and they are well within their rights as a private organization. However they even allow a limited number of heterosexuals to play in their league, so why is bisexuality suddenly a problem?

Clearly because bisexuals are unicorns--- they don't exist.


And that was sarcasm dripping with disdain. Stupidity knows no bounds!

Really? I didn't know that that's what NAGAA stood for - I'm terrible for skimming articles. In that case, I agree completely.
