One of the most frustrating things about the conversation being had about this Nico Hines article is that it is not being labeled as a crime. I haven’t had the chance to ready the article because The Daily Beast found some damned sense and took it down, but from I have read about the article (and someone please correct me if I am wrong) Hines knew that some of these athletes he was naming were from countries where being homosexual was illegal. So, in outting these athletes he has potentially put them in danger. It may not be a crime that one can substantiate by any law, but it is most definitely a moral and social crime.
There are few safe places that we gay people have in the world where we can express ourselves be it sexual or in any other fashion. For a straight man to infiltrate one of our safe spaces and out us is a witch hunt and could possibly contribute to hate crimes among our people. Shame.
