Volley Ball couple?

  • But are you guys sure Piano and Vettori are together? I kmow they are good friends and they work together for a radio program.. but nothing more than that..

    I wish there were more facts and less suppositions. It's a delicate topic to talk about.

    We don't even know if they are out (not sure if this is the right word) to their families.

    It's just their business, after all.

  • Sometimes I feel like I'm a gay guy stuck in a straight girls body :lol::lol: just kidding of course.


    Fag hag is probably what they call my kind...


    It saddens me that people are not comfortable to express themselves as they are in these regions but I completely understand why they would not of course. Everyday we can work on changing people's mindsets little by little:drink: positivity and love will win in the end as always.

  • Kasia Skorupa gave very exhaustive interview (for the first time that she gave such interview) related to her private life. This interview is aftermath of her well-known picture with Paola Egonu. Not everyone who is close to sport/volleyball knew this fact, so it was shocking for some people in Poland.


    Going back to the business, Kasia said one thing that shocked me, I will quote it (sorry, I used google translator, because there is too many to write):


    What is this discrimination?


    I can not say that because I would have trouble. This is discrimination in itself, I just have fears about it.


    Are you the only volleyball-lesbian in Poland?


    Certainly not. I know a lot of girls who are homosexual, but they will not admit it. They do not decide to talk about it because of discrimination. They know that then there will be unpleasant consequences, so they assume that it is better not to say something. I do not criticize it because I know that feeling. This is the individual case of each person.


    What are the unpleasant consequences?


    Financial and image losses that the sponsor will withdraw, will eventually throw you out of the club. The way will be found. I know people who can not say about their homosexuality because they are afraid of losing their place in their national representations. There is an agent in the volleyball who announced that he would prepare a list of lesbians and bisexuals. I ask for what purpose ?! It is pathology. Discrimination, after all, does not only include athletes, but also ordinary people. I have a friend who works in a corporation. Because he has a homophobe boss, he hides his orientation, because if the boss found out, he would let her go.

  • Kudos to Kasia for even finding the courage to speak up about this issue! <3 Young (Polish) lesbian girls now have someone to look up to/to idolize and this will help us improve tomorrows!:drink:

    She's really brave. I still remember one of my friend from Poland committed suicide after his coming out wasn't "successful". His parents background are strict Chatolic. I still remember how he called me at 3am (Indonesian time) and cried all his suffering. And it was the last time we called because the next day I received news about his suicide. It's a heart breaking moment.
