Did the Blue Jays shortstop question the Redsocks sexual orientation?

MLB is checking whether Yunel Escobar played Saturday’s game against Boston while wearing a homophobic slur in Spanish. Says CBS Sports:

Pictures posted online — including one shot from Getty Images — show Escobar with the message “tu ere maricon” written in his eye-black, a sticker players wear under their eyes to reduce glare from the sun.

The phrase can be translated to “you are a f—–.”

My take: Yunel should be able to wear his mascara any way he likes. Everyone knows if a player feels prettier, he'll play better, and the right make-up always enhances a gal's self-esteem!

Over time, Latin players have had a tendency to wear accountrements (certain large necklaces, hairbands) a gringo would normally associate with female fashionistas. I supposed this proves how manly and macho they are. Perhaps I totally misunderstood.
