Many people may have one lesbian or gay relationship in their otherwise heterosexual lives. This relationship may be due to a special chemistry with one person, simple curiosity or be a step in their personal evolution. For women much more than men, there can be a political/feminist element to lesbianism, too. I had a heterosexual relationship after I came out but was and am gay - not even a "butch" gay: no ambiguity at all!
I think it is quite possible that many women and men on the tours could have had, at some point, a homosexual experience but IMO that does not make them gay or lesbian, and we should not fall into the trap of thinking that it does.
In our labels-crazy world, a totally unethical and inhuman capitalist press feeds a naturally curious public who would rather sublimate feelings and desires into fantasy than live them and thereby face the social, cultural and religious backlash. Any sniff of scandal or unconventionality is going to bring the journalists out like a pack of wolves, ready to slap their labels on the rich or successful (even if they are teenage athletes).
I can't imagine how hard it must be for these people to live their loves like the rest of us, especially those who are gay or lesbian or who have a gay/lesbian relationship for whatever reason. I just wish (dreamy old idealistc bitch that I am) that the press would leave them alone and the the world was a more tolerant place where, if they chose to, they could live these relationships openly.
Sorry for the rant. It's not directed at any of the people/posts here. Noone here's condemning or judging any player's sexuality and, as I said before, wondering if someone is gay or not is, perfectly natural, it seems to me. It just really upsets me to read your reports of what the press has said about this player or that player.
