Michael Sam makes history!

Michael Sam hugging his boyfriend in an emotional moment.

Michael Sam has made history by becoming the FIRST openly gay NFL player.  He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams.  So yea, FINALLY we have an openly gay NFL player.  As I have said before and I’ll keep saying it…Honey, there are a bunch of queens running around the field for ALL major sports.

This is the beginning of the ship turning (in the right direction).  Michael had a very emotional reaction when he found out he was drafted and it was caught on camera.  During that reaction, he kissed his partner.  A few notes before I go on.

1.  Many straight players have the EXACT same reaction that is caught on camera.  They cry.
2.  Many straight players kiss their wives or girlfriends on ESPN ALL THE TIME.

Ok, now I’ll continue.  There are idiots out there who are saying that it was inappropriate to show 2 men kissing on ESPN because kids may be watching.  My answer to that is GOOD.  Your kids should be exposed to 2 men kissing.  It is completely normal and fine you moron.  Media has the power to shape what we view as normal.  If you grow up seeing 2 men or 2 women kissing on TV it will be “normal” to you.  Just as it is to see men and women kiss.

This just shows how some people simply don’t live in reality.  To say that it is inappropriate to show 2 men kissing on TV is discrimination in it’s purest form.  The sad thing is that many people just don’t see that.  Why is it ok to see half naked women on almost every ad out there? Why is it ok to see men and women kiss on ads everyday?

Some folks in the NFL have put their foots in their mouths already by tweeting bigoted comments.  The NFL has fined them and done the right thing.   Don Jones is one of the idiots who showed the world just how dumb he is by tweeting his dis-approval of the kiss.  He was fined and had to issue a statement apologizing.  Question for you…and for everyone out there.  How would people react if someone tweeted or said something racist about a black man? I think we have all seen what happens (Donald Sterling).   Why is it is any less offensive or wrong to make comments about gay people? It’s the same.  Anyone who says it isn’t is misinformed.  Bigotry is bigotry.

Some food for thought.
Kisses!!
