Tim Hardaway just looks dumber and dumber

Yeah. I have to look in their eyes and watch them walk on eggshells. I have to walk on eggshells. Not knowing what to expect from people. Not sleeping at night because of what someone may do. Staying up until 3 or 4 in the morning thinking that someone may jump my fence and set my house on fire. Or someone try to break in and hurt us. We just went to the movies the other day and that's what I had running through my mind, how were people going to react? "Is someone going to do something real, real, real crazy to one of us?" I have no idea what people may do. And I'm going to have to be that way for a long time now, because you never know. You never know.

Right, because there are SO many gay people out there looking to assault enormous ex-professional athletes. Timmy may get some saliva in his soup, or some bad service at the Ferragamo store, but has anyone actually been assaulted for voicing anti-gay views? There are some very big, tough, gay men, but they don't go around violently attacking people just for being idiotic bigots.

Scoop Jackson also suggested that Hardaway's kid might be in danger from a roving band of violent homosexual activists. The chances of that happening are approximately the same as his being gored by a unicorn. The truth is that most high schools are still incredibly hostile places for homosexuals and he's more likely to be congratulated by a homophobic jock than stabbed by a member of his school's production of "Cabaret."

Hardaway probably has homosexual urges that he's repressing. I'm straight, a 0 or 1 on the Kinsey scale, and I don't spend a whole lot of time thinking about homosexuals or homosexual sex except when it bursts into the news, or it's shoved in my face (I'm in the Village and there are a bunch of guys making out.) If you spend the time necessary to build up that kind of hate towards gay people, the kind of hate where you won't even shake hands with someone because his lover's name is Brian instead of Brianna, you're either fighting your own homosexuality (Ted Haggard) or you're just a hateful hateful person who needs a target for your rage.
