I can't fault people for having opinions shaped by their influences growing up. I know myself in high school I grew up in a moderate-conservative town and was a little weirded out by gay people and given the vote to legalize gay marriage, I may have voted against. My views have changed a lot over the last 7 years or so and am not only a supporter, but feel that the discrimination of the LGBT community is one of the biggest problems and disappointments I see in this country.

The good news is that support of gay rights is growing and there are lots of people like me who have become or are becoming completely comfortable around gay people. I think it's just a matter of time before professional athletes start coming out, and when they do I don't think it will be a problem.
