It would be easy to dismiss this sad story as that of just another egocentric celebrity athlete who couldn't control himself. But its worth our stopping and thinking about what we as men (gay, straight, or whatever) stand for.
With all our focus on our CSA and recovery, we forget that there's more to life than that. Love, caring, compassion, helping others, making the world a better place, being there for someone in need. None of it sounds very "manly", but at the end of it all, its all we leave behind us in this world.
"Stand, in the end you'll still be you,
One that's done all the things you set out to do.
Stand, there's a cross for you to bear,
Things to go through if you're going anywhere."Sly & the Family Stone
