I drive a 3/4 ton diesel truck that sprays coal fumes everywhere. I own firearms. I'm heterosexual.
I don't have to be a liberal or a hippie or a homosexual to believe in equality.
I never said anything about equality. I believe in equality for everyone. My soon to be sister in law is gay. My uncle was gay (rip Preston), and they are/were just wonderful people and super funny. I have a friend I've known for 10 years and when I met him he was married and had kids. A couple of years back he came out and he's married to a black guy now happy as ever...I was happy for him. I love him to death, my opinion has never changed and I was never inclined to not be his friend.
There should be equality for everyone. There's just some awkward logistics in a sports environment when it comes mixing gays with straights, not because of equality....but just simply the nature of a gay guys sexual orientation creates friction.
Maybe the best thing for the NFL to do is to have individual rooms and showers for players. I'm ok with that. A gay guy wants to play football...great....let him play. Having to share showers with a gay man has nothing to do with equality though. If anything it's an infringement on rights
