Peanuts, cracker jacks, racism, and biphobia? The story continues of three bisexual-identified African American members of a gay softball team who claim they were cut from the 2008 Gay Softball World Series in Seattle for "not being gay enough."
The men, members of a San Francisco softball team, say they were questioned in front of a room full of strangers about their sexual preferences after a protest was lodged alleging their team had violated a rule that limited to two the number of heterosexuals on any team.
The men, backed by the National Center for Lesbian Rights in San Francisco, are suing based on charges of bisexual discrimination. U.S. District Judge John Coughenour's agreed that the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Association operates as "a 'public accommodation' by inviting public attendance, charging a fee and providing a service, and therefore must comply with the state's anti-discrimination laws."
Coughenour has refused to dismiss the case - involved parties are anticipating a trial on August 1.
I understand the need to create intentional queer space and police it to some extent, but NAGAAA keep yourselves in check!
