Football has finally joined the rest of society in its openness to sexuality and equality.
An FA spokesman said: 'We want to ensure that if any player wishes to be open about their sexuality, then they can do it with the full support of the FA. We want a "So what?" culture in football.'
The FA are encouraging people within the game - spectators, players, managers and match officials - to report homophobia and transphobia.
PFA chief Gordon Taylor has already issued hundreds of awareness posters to be sent to professional clubs all over the country to be placed in prominent positions on dressing-room walls.
They seem to be having the desired effect.
Fair play boys. Fair play...
