Whenever gay marriage is a topic, you'll hear comparisons of them to pedophiles, or people who like having sex with animals. I could go on, but the point is bigotry is still real and still a big and accepted attitude among large swaths of America. I live where being a anti-gay bigot is a good thing when you run for office.

    We have come a long way.
    Drama.

    Then where's the uproar about when straight people do it. Because they do, I assure you.

    Don't let that kill your persecution complex though.

    Bursting into tears is fine. And being there with his boyfriend was OK, too. We've seen these scenes with family, friends, and significant others play out over and over. I thought the goal was for this to be accepted like any other player being drafted, and it easily could have been, but unfortunately, it wasn't.
    yes because being first at something, breaking a barrier should be done quietly?


    No, Sam and his main squeeze had to gay it up for the cameras in flamboyant style, complete with
    a marriage-ready face cake-smush and sloppy mug-down for all the cameras to flash across America. Couldn't just celebrate being drafted like a typical football player. Thankfully, they cut the cameras before Sam bent Blondie over the table for a quickie.
    And how is this not bigoted garbage.......so any player who kissed his girlfriend you feel the same way? What about that not-NFL ready Johnny who has his own logo?


    If only the gay community would settle for just being gay. Nobody really cares or has a problem with that. We really don't. But it's stupid to "celebrate" that a man prefers sex with men instead of women, as if this requires some sort of aptitude or higher learning achievement. So he really likes screwing guys. Congratulations, I guess? This incessant need to be on stage waterboarding the country with gaydom 24/7 is borderline psychotic.
    so you want people to be gay as long as they are in the closet? Ummmm the 1950s are over.


    Bottom line is, this "acceptance" that seems so important has already been reached. Nobody cares that much. However, it's still damn awkward and funny, and it always will be. Jokes and laughs were shared across the U.S. Gay people are funny, unless you have a 6-year-old watching that you really weren't ready to have that conversation with.
    What would be the conversation. Son: Dad those two men kissed. Dad: Yes son, some men like men like I like your mom. Son: Okay....will he be a good player. Why shouldn't it go like that?


    If you want gay to be normal, then act normal about it. Be men, not staged actors in a bad Lifetime movie.
    I am sorry you hate people showing emotion.....I look forward to your rants about virtually everyone picked on Thursday night.............

    What did Tebow do first exactly? Was he the first Christian in the NFL? Was he the first white guy? Was he the first guy who put up gaudy numbers in college and disappointed in the NFL? Was he the first guy from the University of Florida? Maybe he's the first NFL player born in the Phillipines...but it's not like he's Filipino.

    No, he was the first white player to exalt God after scoring, proclaim his virginity, do mission work in the off season. He made no bones about his Christianity and was proud of the person he felt it made him.
    Also, how many NFL "busts" took a team to a play off win?
    Unorthodox throwing motion? Yea, so what? He is a winner and a dedicated player.
