Mr. Gilbert, 30, epitomizes the modern A.F.L. player: tall and athletic — and mindful of equality. He’s straight, but he joins a pride march every year.

First time in his life he's been called Mr Gilbert. And what about Mr Winmar, the A.F.L legend.

I'd assume the source of pride would more likely come from surviving persecution for what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedrooms.

I guess we could make it illegal like in some countries and kill them instead.

Now wouldn't that be progress???

It was rather ironic that during the "Pride" celebrations at the SCG the background level 2 signage constantly displayed advertising for Qatar airways.

Is that the same modern progressive Qatar that imports "slave" African labourers and where homosexuality is punishable by death?

Clearly the AFL's degree of pride isn't deep enough to stop them lining their pockets with the filthy tainted lucre from these medieval SCUM!

I recall back in the 80's, when Idi Amin was torturing and murdering thousands, the English,
in a true celebration of unbiased capitalism, were selling whiskey and other stuff to his regime - and this came out in the media.

The pursuit of money over-rides morality and fair play.

Well said, EM. This is the hypocrisy and malarkey you come to expect in the 21st century. Talks of social progression and human rights, yada-yada-yada, but here we are living in the day in age of corporate tyranny, where all that stuff can take a backseat so the CEO can take his family vacation in the Swiss Alps.

There was also irony with the first Pride match last year, with it being hosted at Etihad Stadium. Because, you know, the Saudis have such a renowned peaceful culture for tolerance of LGBTI people and all.

What a moronic ignorant statement to make. So it's ok for a bloke to brag to his mates because his girlfriend allows him to anally penetrate her but two men who genuinely love each other and share physical love in the privacy of their own room should be ashamed?

You are so superior. Magnificent virtue signalling. Bring me up to speed as to the statement I made, rather than abuse me and make illogical comparisons. Nicely brainwashed. Better a sensible Neanderthal than a member of the "sheople". What they do in private is their business. It's legal as well, so no problems with that. Just can't see what there is to be proud about when the psychological and health outcomes of the practise are so devastating. It's an ugly reality the gay lobby goes to great lengths to cover up. Higher rates of mental illness, std's, compromised immunity etc. no cause for celebration there, methinks.

bravo WW, instead of folks absorbing all the propaganda put out by those with an agenda, some of us choose to use our brains and work it out for ourselves.
BBMD using the work Neanderthal is just ironic, when he/she is the one unable to think clearly.

So what's the issue? The use of the word "Pride"?

Perhaps renaming it to Molly and Friends Round is in order, if it is ticking people off so much.

It baffles me that most of the prejudice towards this kind of progress has originated from an organisation that has protected men that have sodomised children.
