    Flaunt is more appropriate in this case.

    KR, please let me know when you upload videos from nationals. All I've seen so far is Bubba and Robles' finals. Can't acess espn video in Canada.
    The only videos I have left that I personally shot are from the Big Tens. I just haven't had time to edit them as the rules say I can't post a video longer then a minute so I have to take the time to cut down 7-8 minutes on about 10 matches each. The one I was referring to was Shane's avatar which is Mike Thorn's semifinal win over Marion in which he came back from a 5-1 deficit with about 30 seconds left to win it in OT.

    Back on topic:
    While I respect Hudson for taking a stand in something he believes & I believe that human rights should be afforded everyone, I think an opposing viewpoint would be one more in sync with arguing over whether discrimination against someone's sexual preference is valid whereas discrimination being frowned upon due to race or gender is now accepted. However I think that what is missing here is perhaps that Hudson's take is not taking any legal stand but just an ethical one based upon treating people with respect. As far as I know he isn't asking for gay marriage or anti-discrimination legislation. It is an underlying fundamental handling which I can agree with & support. The legal stuff I wouldn't but that is properly another topic for another thread.

    I can understand why someone might oppose Hudson's stance or viewpoint from the idea that there is a segment of the homosexual community that flaunts (that word again) their sexual behavior so openly & it offends many people, (see the San Francisco Gay Parades). There is also a segment of the Politically Correct Gay crowd that thinks that anyone who opposes their agenda of Gay rights should be shouted down & attacked. But again those are arguments that are geared towards a moral & legal positions respectively & have nothing to do with just treating others as you would want to be treated. I think anyone arguing against Hudson's stand is confusing those points & doesn't understand that they are actually separate arguments.

    2011 Big Ten 141 lb semi final Thorn vs Marion. THorn won after being down 5-1 with 30 seconds left. Tied it & won it in OT. Exciting match. I have it on video. I will post a one min version of it soon on my youtube channel.

    You are probably right, but you don't have to go flouting about it.

    But back on topic, I didn't really see a topic. He's just saying words hurt and he's against that. Nothing to see here....... Move along......
