Thoughts on the Sandusky Penn State Scandal

(photo via commons.wikimedia.org)

The Coach Sandusky scandal at Penn State. Oceans of newspaper reporting and TV stuff. And quite obviously football and masculinity were far more important than those kids. I played all the sports in high school long ago and it was no surprise to me. All that horsing around in the shower is for one reason only.

Reading all this coverage I immediately thought, "Do they think this was only happening at Penn State? Why aren't they checking what's happening/happened at other colleges? And suddenly Syracuse University has a coach, Mr. Fine, a longtime friend of their head coach, being turned in. My guess is that there's going to be a lot more young guys stepping up to tell about having to "put out" to be given attention in the sports world. We all know that's what goes on in Hollywood and Broadway. Why should the sports world be any different? It's the homosexuality thing that gets the public. Our big sports heroes fooling around with another guy? Ooh, Ooh, Ooh!

Dear Diva-David,
What gives with the porn industry, gay and straight, becoming such a major think in our country? I like porn from time to time but people seem to be watching it all the time on line. Doing it isn't the same thing as looking at it.

Dear Porn-fed Up,
What do you mean Diva-David? What did I ever do to you? I'm just as plain as an old boot when you get to know me. As for those porniacs. It's all this electronic stuff. Research shows that more people prefer messaging to speaking. Nobody wants to run the risk of actually being judged. They just want to send a lot of baloney about themselves out to people they call "friends" whom they've never met and then watch people doing what they are too timid to do. A big part of this country is heading into the closet. Please don't go in there.
