Defensive end Michael Sam wanted the NFL team that drafts him to have no doubts about his sexuality. Now he is poised to become the league’s first openly gay player. His Missouri teammates accept him. Will the pros? “Jason Collins is an activist; Wade Davis is an activist,” says the 24-year-old Sam. “I see myself as a football player.”

I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m on queer overload. I’m just numb from all this queerness being “celebrated”.

I wanna go home.

Hey, we have at least one FReeper who admires his “courage and honesty”.

Who ever drafts him will have nightmare press conferences after every game he does not play in.

It’s good we celebrate a man because he likes to have anal sex with another man.

That’s what essentially important to this society.

Sports Illustrated is a gay rights magazine now?

How many homos are on staff?

Sports Illustrated has been all homosexual, all the time for quite a while now. Of course they will orgasm over this for many months to come.

Cancel subscriptions and refuse to buy, only way to curb them. Time Inc. calls their tune, money is the only way to punish them.

Only three percent of the population, but it is all Homosexual All the time in the USA. Do you want to hear howls of condemnation? Let a straight guy behave like a straight guy and talk about how he appreciates an attractive woman’s looks.

Within 24 hours of his announcement, President Obama tweeted support for his courage.

Over 3 years into a legal struggle, Mr. Obama waited until this year refer to the jailed American Christian pastor in Iran (Saeed Abedini) by name.

I long for the days when you could do that without being arrested.

Now the queers can parade naked in front of our kids and perform their perversions in public.

Every day, everywhere, is a Gay Pride Parade.

I’m bloody sick of it.

Oh you ought to see the lovefests all over. And anyone who dares mention morals or The Bible gets the full-on hate treatment, intolerance indeed.

And yet not one mention of M2M promiscuity, HIV/AIDS/STDs, which will kill far more people that all of World Wars, tax demographics and economies and healthcare.

Indeed, celebrate perversity.

"Defensive end Michael Sam wanted the NFL team that drafts him to have no doubts about his sexuality."

So let me see if I have this right...even though he is himself confused about his sexuality, he doesn't want others to have doubts. Got it.

If he sees himself as a football player why did he feel it was so important to tell us he takes it up the butt?

One of my favourite lines comes from the Dead Kennedys:

My news of the world comes from Sports Illustrated. (Terminal Preppie)

I had a brother-in-law who would take the Sports section out of the Atlanta paper, and throw the whole rest of the paper in the trash. So if I wanted to read the actual news, or the comics, or whatever, I had to dig the paper out of the trash.

iow: since he was an overatted player and could not cry racism to force purchase of his skills, he cried homosexual in order to embarrase those who did not want him in the first place.

“Jason Collins is an activist; Wade Davis is an activist,” says the 24-year-old Sam. “I see myself as a football player.”

Then why bring it up? I don't run around at work discussing what I do in my bedroom. It's nobody's business. My employer didn't hire me based on what happens in my home.

Never read it, but homosexualists’ numbers in the media appear to be well over 10%, far more than their numbers among the general population.

They push an agenda from within a closet.

This is not front cover news.

When Houston won the NBA championship, THAT didn’t even appear on the front cover (of anything but a regional market edition).

(1) It is not “sex”, it is sodomy. Don’t capitulate the language.

(2) The act involves a clinical determination of “coprophilia”, often indirect but, coprophilia noentheless.
