LGBT people are not scary in the showers, but according to statements made by some professional soccer players in England, gays are terrifying after the uniforms are off.
Patrice Evra, a former professional soccer player from France, revealed that while he was playing for West Ham, some of his colleagues publicly stated that they would refuse to shower with any gay teammates. Robbie Rogers was already out and showering with his Major League Soccer colleagues by that time.
“I give the example, when I was playing for West Ham, someone from the English federation came and said, ‘We need to accept everyone’ and the number of players that were like ‘no, if some of my teammates are gay they have to leave now, I won't do any shower [with them],’” Evra told Daily Mail.
