It happened! It actually happened! An openly gay football player was drafted into the National Football League. His name is Michael Sams.
Michael Sams is a University of Missouri college football player who decided not to let others determine how he would live his life. Michael Sams is gay and he came out. I have to admit I am in awe of the courage this man has demonstrated.
Now I have something else to admit, I am experiencing schadenfreude again. I am throughly enjoying the discomfort of all those homophobes who are beside themselves now knowing that not only did an openly gay college football player get drafted but he kissed his boyfriend right in front of everybody! Oh my, the sky is surely falling for those folks.
First it was the repeal of the odious "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law that ignoramuses like John McCain said would destroy the military. It didn't. Then there was the same sex marriages that those who were opposed said would destroy "traditional" marriage (whatever that is). It didn't. Now an openly gay football player who isn't ashamed to show his emotion and KISS his boyfriend. I bet my homophobe cousin in North Carolina (who told me never to "step foot on his land again" when he found out that I "practiced the gay lifestyle" won't be watching Monday Night football anymore.
|Surely the End of Times, a man kissing a man!|
