Bowi Young, the twenty-year-old boy who wrote a letter to the KNVB because he bothers to ‘gay’-vituperation along to the soccer field, takes a step back because of threats to his address. In the Gaykrant, he tells us that those curses and threats to him too much.
When Young was walking in the street, he did not feel more at his ease, he says to the Gaykrant.
“Through Facebook, I received messages with a curse as pisnicht’ and ‘relnicht’. I would only make matters worse for the gays in our country. I would do it to DUTCH. Of gays I got responses that I my mouth had to learn to love it and that I was not on behalf of the community was talking. I thought: if you all don’t understand…”
He says to take a step back. “Safe on the streets, is for me also very important. If I publicly in the foreground continue on, I’m your typical activist. That’s good, but maybe not the correct way to tackle the problem. I’ve already been in contact with the KNVB, but an appointment is not yet come. It is just as good, if. Next year I see further.” The interview with the Gaykrant is, for now, his last interview.
Young also responded to voetbalanalist Johan Derksen on television said that homosexuals should cease to do so or it is so difficult to get out of the closet. According to Young, had Derksen no idea what he is ravaged with that comment.
On Twitter responded, many under the hashtag #SorryJohan with personal stories to make it clear that gays have to deal with. Derksen said in a comment “not homophobic” and that his jokes are not malicious meant.
Derksen: ‘Nothing against gays, non-malicious joke must be able to’
