New York Yankee "Bleacher Creatures" Agree To Stop Chanting Homophobic "Gay Man" Song

Key members of the Yankee’s “Bleacher Creatures” have agreed to stop chanting the homophobic song “Gay Man” that they use to embaress rival team fans. 

As posted here on October 10, 2010.  The “Gay Man”/- “Why Are You Gay” was a tradition of Section 39/Section 203, aka the Bleacher Creatures, and is directed at fans of the opposing team sitting in or near the section and is sung on a regular basis with video proof of it being sung as far back as 2004..  Now according to according to Flip Bondy of the New York Daily News, several key members of Yankee Stadium’s Bleacher Creatures have agreed to police their own area and put an end to the tradition, which had upset many fans..

“It’s all done,” a long-time Creature told the Daily News. “All of it. We’re going clean. We didn’t like the way the Bleacher Creatures were being looked at. That’s not us.”

It stopped because they “didn’t like the way they were being looked at” not because its “wrong” or potentionally dangerous” or “insulting”.

Buty at least it’s over now.  WE HOPE..
