But the issue of an openly gay player on a team has been a news topic all year. Did you miss those stories? Of course this got ink.
He was giving his opinion on it and made a rash comment in the face of media when he was unprepared. People need to stop crucifying this kid for some stupid shit he said. It's been corrected already. He's making it up with the LGBT by doing charity work. As a result of this more people are coming out and saying how shitty what he said was and more progress is being made within the gay community. This mentality will be less prevalent moving forward.

I didn't see anything on television about gay athletes before this and the only related thing about gay athletes I've read was the Wade Davis stuff and that Raiders tackle guy, and both of those I read online. Please link to me to what you're talking about, I'd love to hear more.

Haha, calling me a dweeb when you completely misinterpreted what I said. That's rich. I meant that if the mentality of Culliver exists it gets corrected by a leader (vernon davis), aka they police themselves without the need of people from the outside to know anything about it

you know, for a person who says that this story doesn't matter, you seem to have an awful lot to say about it. Once again, he gave his opinion, which was horrible and people are going to respond to it. It's not something that exists only within the team, especially because spouted off his bigoted view on the SB media platform. I don't care if he was prepared or not, it's what he thinks.

And who's crucifying Culliver? He said a terrible thing, and people are going to let him know.

I was calling Culliver the myopic dweeb, not you. I see what you meant now.

You're looking at it through the larger perspective of gay rights as a whole. I'm looking at it from the perspective of a concentrated mentality of gays in professional environments. Let's just leave it at that.

Ah ok, sorry about that

@harrisonsamonster I'm saying the story shouldn't matter. It shouldn't have gotten attention. But now that it has, I'm voicing my opinion on why it shouldn't. Only reason I'm saying anything about it at all. But the more I argue the more I realize it's better that he did. It's doing more to help gay rights than anything tbh. Still don't like that the kid's was getting hung out to dry for a while there, but he should be fine.
