Are you KIDDING us, Asante Samuel??
You seriously think that straight people don't flaunt their sexuality constantly (have you ever seen television, a music video, or heard college students talk??), and that just by coming out (which a lot of the time means having had to hide) is FLAUNTING being gay?? We can't even believe you said something like this!
The Atlanta Falcons cornerback told FOX Sports Radio that he doesn't understand why gays have to 'flaunt' their sexuality after being asked about Jason Collins' major reveal.
"Straight people are not announcing they're straight, so why does everybody have to announce their sexuality or whatever? You know, what they prefer…So that's just how I see it. That's my opinion on things. All respect you know, I have nothing but respect for the people whoever decisions they make and whatever, but you know, you don't have to show it and flaunt it like that. You know what I'm saying, we have kids out here, too."
And what's so wrong about kids knowing someone is gay?? This is so offensive we can't even handle it!
Samuel later added on ESPN:
"I don't think it's something we have to express and let be known of what my sexuality preference is - just stick to sports….I don't want to teach my kids those things. I teach my kids God. You know, how God lives his life."
Don't teach your kids WHAT to think, teach your kids HOW to think! Who wouldn't want to teach their kids about acceptance and love??
Seems like an okay thing to us!
We're floored that anyone can be so stifling to his fellow human beings!
