How I Want to Be?

It appears St Kilda Football Club is currently selling the merchandise shown below.

OKay, so it's the gay flag right,I get that....but the slogan?
What does it mean?
Don't know about anyone else but I AM already "gay"......I'm not just considering it, or thinking about turning, nor wishing I was....I AM!!!
So.......???
Is it for the wishful thinking? Or those poor unfortunate buggers who were born straight but have since come to the realisation of what a huge birth defect that is and would now like to convert from their impairment to a far happier state?
I tried being "normal" once......worst two minutes of my life!!!

I saw it too and I took it as the person wearing it is open and comfortable in the arena. How they want to be.
IT SEEMS AS THOUGH TRUSTING PEOPLE IS A CRIME IN THIS GAME!

backlash on forums today Swanee mirroring your thoughts on agenda pushing in the AFL. I think it is wearing thin. For me it is there, I see it once i choose to take it in , but I don't let it smother me.

Wrong Wrong Wrong...

This is an unfortunate example of how possibly with the best of intentions something has gone incredibly pear shaped.

Most ppl dont understand it !....Others think it' s recruiting.

Set us back 10 years...would have been better off not even having this...I with Mr Swannee's views on the matter...just play footy.

With that said.....those ahead of me in the footy tipping competition watch out...this is the w/e I make my move :twisted:

Might be alright if the AFL had a team who wore those colours on their guernsey, but otherwise it's just a sign saying "I'm Gay", ....or beat me up..... unfortunately!
I am gay, fully and in every way, however I don't think I need to wear a label just to prove it....or advertise the fact.

Being that way is perfectly natural to my mindset, and I don't really spend my time obsessing about it or making every damn decision in light of the fact.
I go everywhere with my partner, ...and introduce him as such, so if people want to draw the bleedin' obvious conclusion, fine.
It's not my obligation to satisfy their prurient curiosity.

Does anyone introduce themselves by saying "Hi, I'm Joe and I'm gay!" ?
