Re: Jerzy Janowicz Homophobic Rant On Instagram.

Yes of course what he said was homophobic, I don't know how anyone can defend it. That's pretty sad, I used to always defend him because in his tennis rants with journalists he nearly almost had a point, but I'm done with it, he showed who he is.

Not sure how you managed to drag Radwańska sisters to this though. I can't recall anything that would remotely suggest it. Not only they're generally diplomatic and would simply not write or perform anything like that, but Aga even worked with Navratilova as consultant. I don't know if Sveta is really gay or not, but she was one of Aga's favorite people on tour as well.

Yes, it's true a lot of people in Eastern Europe are homophobic. Not sure if more or less than in the West, maybe they just speak about it more publicly. Also, it's rapidly changing for the better.

Re: Jerzy Janowicz Homophobic Rant On Instagram.

I actually sort of can understand the perception that sometimes LGBT stuff is being 'forced' into some areas it's not necessarily needed but even that's on our behalf by others usually grinding political axes, not us ourselves.

If it was JUST a random kiss cam then that was especially immature by Jerzy.

All that said, fast forward a bit of time and I think Eastern Europe may be better for gays to live than Western .

"LGBT stuff is being 'forced' into some areas it's not necessarily needed" and "immature" sound a bit like you want to excuse this behaviour.

And it seems like you do not know much about Europe.

You say that because of Islamisation? Cause if it happens the region won't be exactly western anymore.

The gay community stepped in and became the biggest fanbase.

But in eastern Europe, whose countries have participated in the ESC only since the mid-90's, the event is still being taken more seriously. Many more people are watching it, despite the influence of gay culture on the event.
Actually the contest is most watched in countries such as Spain, the UK, France, Germany and Italy.

How was calling Jerzy immature excusing his behaviour?

Well, in absolute numbers obviously, since those are the biggest European nations, plus they're guaranteed to have a representative in the final. But relative to the size of the population, those figures (if correct) for Serbia, Lithuania or Estonia are massive and easily dwarf those of France or Italy. Even for Greece that didn't even qualify for the final it's an impressive number.

But viewership figures aside, East European countries often send their absolute top, most popular performers. For example, Dima Bilan, Polina Gagarina and Sergey Lazarev are huge stars in Russia. When was the last time the UK sent someone truly relevant?

Immature sounds like he didn't know better and will grow up one day, but that's not the case. He's not immature, he is homophobic, as simple as that.
