LSU Reveille - Professional sports leagues across the country are preparing themselves for what seems to be inevitable: What happens when the country sees its first active, openly-gay athlete in a major sport? Everything from desegregation, such as Jackie Robinson’s smashing of baseball’s color barrier, to centuries-old religious differences have found their way onto athletic fields throughout history. In one way or another, they have worked as proponents — or, in some instances, opponents — of change in society. This generation’s conflict has taken shape in the form of equality for those who identify themselves as member’s of the LGBT community. A football locker room has long been drenched in traditional masculine attitudes, making it a prime battleground for the same-sex equality movement.
“Football is supposed to be this violent sport — this aggressive sport that grown men are supposed to play,” said senior LSU running back Alfred Blue. “Ain’t no little boys out here between them lines. So if you gay, we look at you as a sissy. You know? Like, how you going to say you can do what we do and you want a man?”
Obviously the hot topic in sports these days. Are there gay players in football? When will they come out? And for the most part everyone with a brain either avoids comment or says they’re all for it. Apparently not Alfred Blue who not only doesn’t want gays playing football but also think they’re sissys and less than men. Certainly won’t cause a shitstorm for him or anything. Listen everyone is entitled to their opinion obviously but I guess I just don’t get it. You really wouldn’t want some 260 pound fullback opening up touchdown runs for you because he’s gay? You don’t want some stud left tackle making lanes for you during 200 yard rushing games because he likes to touch pee-pees after the game? I mean if I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times. If you can play you can play. Who gives a fuck who you date or fuck in your free time. Help me win a BCS Championship and a Heisman and I’ll suck your dick myself.
