That was what I wanted to tell Mr. Blatter. Instead of telling people to refrain from any sexual activity – which is impossible as humans are sexual beings – he should have said it was none of his nor anybody’s business what people do sexually in their own privacy. For my money, even in societies where certain kinds of sexual acts are not permitted, people will find a way to do it anyway, regardless of race, religion, or nationality. If they cannot do it where they are, people will seek to release their smuttiness somewhere else.
In my book, I think football (or soccer) is arguably the gayest game, despite the seemingly unwelcoming attitude towards homosexuality of people involved in the sport, be they the players, the fans or the football authorities themselves. On the football field, you will quite often see footballers running towards one another and delivering such intimate actions to their mates as hugs and gentle kisses when they score a goal. That is even more homoerotic than seeing a gay person mincing on a street. No wonder it is so popular among men. I am sure there must be something arousing about watching guys scoring each other’s goals.
