We hate it when gays and lesbians fight, but now the SF-based National Center for Lesbian Rights has taken on a discrimination case on behalf of three straight plaintiffs, Steven Apilado, LaRon Charles and Jon Russ, who all played on D2, a softball team that is part of the San Francisco Gay Softball League.

It seems that when D2 trounced the Atlanta Mudcats at the 2008 Gay Softball World Series in Kent, Washington, the Mudcats starting making noise about how many hetero players D2 had on their team. Under the league rules, the team was only permitted to have two straights among them, the Apilado, Charles, and Russ were hustled into a conference room and asked some very personal questions about who they liked to get jiggy with. Now, the National Center for Lesbian Rights is arguing in U.S. District Court that the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance violated some Washington statute by limiting the number of heterosexual players.
