    And three bisexual men are suing a national gay athletic organization, saying they were told they were not gay enough to play in the Gay Softball World Series.

    The Seattle Times reports the lawsuit alleges the men were interrogated about their sexuality — because the tournament rules limited each team to just two heterosexual players. It claims one of the plaintiffs was told: "this is the gay World Series, not the bisexual World Series."

    The men were ruled non-gay, and their team was stripped of its second-place finish. The alliance says it is a private organization, and can determine its own membership.

    The men are asking for $75,000 each for emotional distress.

    I completely agree with the bolded statement. They are a private organization and should be able to pick and choose whoever they want on any basis they want.

    I just hope they remember this statement when it is used against them!

    The irony is that those folks (the organization) demand we be open and accepting of them. I guess that is only a one way street.
