“It is necessary to clarify that homophobia does not necessarily mean that people who suffer are homosexual, but only that other people believe it or use it to insult, harass and humiliate others.”
Last December, French sports presenter Daniel Riolo courted controversy after implying that Ronaldo's relationship with boxer Badr Hari was more than just friendship.
Homophobia remains a huge cultural problem in football around the world. Just last month, a new video campaign showed Mexican players condeming homophobic chants, after it emerged as a huge problem in that nation during the 2014 World Cup.
Ramirez pointed out that it is vital for the football associations to clamp down on homophobia, in the same way they would any other kind of bullying or discrimination.
"It is incomprehensible that there is a double standard to measure intolerance in sport," he said. "Cases of racism or xenophobia have been acted upon with speed and forcefulness, yet homophobia continues to be ignored."
The State Commission to whom he complained can impose punishments on those clubs and supporters which are found to have engaged in any of these types of offences.More stories Cristiano Ronaldo gets a spattering in new underwear campaign Mexican footballers speak out against homophobic crowd chants in new video
