    The best answer was that given by Stefan Bradl, who joked "Maybe if it makes us faster we will think about it…"

    It doesn't come across in the transcript well but I thought JLo's response was pretty funny as well. Great question. I wish Hayden would have been up there to answer it. He's usually pretty funny in a dry way about that sort of stuff.

    Pretty sad if there is a homophobic culture in MotoGP and WSBK. I mean seriously, get over it already.

    Since they are European based series I figured it was a non issue.

    Don't you sort of feel, if Rossi can't win in the dry at Jerez this weekend, he's not going to be winning? :lurk

    Put hotpants on Pedrosa's umbrella men -- that'll change the tone of the sport a bit.

    And on that whining subject lets keep Casey's 4 wheeled news in the Casey Stoner on 4 wheels thread.

    Stoner has become a whiner. I thought he was always a whiner:D
    He is now one of the guys he once complained about, the "back markers"

    Regarding the question about openly gay MotoGP racers; in a slightly different, but related gender issue, Mike Duff, former 250 MotoGP competitor did opt for a full-on transgender conversion after his racing career and became Michelle Duff at that time.

    Maybe he should give it try seeing the racing thing is not going to well for him at the moment..
