Gay Wrestling League FURIOUS at WWE Star

3/29/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The champion of the Pro Gay Wrestling Federation is OUTRAGED that WWE announcer Michael Cole has not been suspended for posting a homophobic slur on Twitter ... TMZ has learned.

First off ... yes, there is a Pro Gay Wrestling Federation.

Secondly, we spoke with PGW champion -- The Gay Avenger -- who tells us he's upset by Cole's "intolerant and insensitive" comment ... and insists the word encourages a "hostile bullying environment."

PGW founder and CEO Francis Minks adds, "How can ANYONE at the WWE say anything derogatory about gay people?? Look at what they do and have been doing for a living for years! Big muscles, small tights rolling around! I'm just saying, honey."

Minks adds, "People in glass houses shouldn't throw sconces!"

Cole has since issued an apology for using the slur ... and the WWE says Cole will take part in a GLAAD training session in an effort to educate him about the perils of discrimination. 

The Avenger -- along with several other wrestlers -- tell us they're upset Cole did not get a harsher punishment.

It is immoral and wrong. Just because gay people yell loud does not make it right. It should be illegal, and they should all be locked up. Judgement day is coming.

There is no law that homosexuals must be liked, but there is a law guaranteeing a right to free speech.

I think it's insensitive for Francis Minks to use the word 'honey'...I mean, that's offensive to bees everywhere and I am calling for him to get some sensitivity training. He needs a harsh punishment, like, 50 bee stings. Think this sounds ridiculous? Well, his argument sounds just as crazy. Grow some balls, gays.

the problem is, F**GoT was a word used, not in reference to gays, but in GENERAL TO PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT COOL, in the late 70s, early 80s, and now, you are telling people they are racist, WHEN THEY AREN'T/WEREN'T. Yes, the word is a gay slur, SOMETIMES, but NOT ALL THE TIMES and someone should not lose their job or be suspended because of it, ESPECIALLY IN THAT LINE OF WORK. We are not talking about a gov't official, a public speaker, etc.
