I know this has been a long time coming but with Free Agent Jason Collins being propped up by the President of the United States and the media, I feel that it’s in my best interest to come out and proclaim that I am straight man. No, I am not looking for my 15 minutes of fame. I want the world to know that it’s OK who you are and that it’s really OK to show strength through being straight and confident. I know it’s not the norm. Most Americans are demonized for not being tolerant of people who bring their sexual preference outside their home for the world to see.
I seriously don’t think that it’s right but I guess I am a hypocrite today because Jason Collins is being a poster child for this madness. He’s hitting all the media shows, talk shows, radio shows…and he can do this because the NBA season is over and his team didn’t make the playoffs. Grant it, he’s been playing ball since November of last year and never said anything.
Now the season is over. Jason doesn’t have to suit up. Jason doesn’t have to shower with the guys. Jason doesn’t have to show up in shirts and skins and play with devout Christians. What Jason did, was stick a finger in the eye of the NBA. If he doesn’t get picked up next season, most will say that it’s because he came out as being gay, even though he’s been on almost every team and has little to no playing time.
Collins is a journeyman who at best can pick up fouls to help the team out but a superstar he isn’t. He’s not even a hero. He’s an individual that is thinking about life after basketball my friends.
As for me, I am a straight man. Always have been. I don’t have a problem telling someone but then again why should I? This is my business correct? What goes on in my house is there and there alone. The mainstream media has decided if you don’t toe the line and agree with homosexuality and it’s origins you are naturally a bigot.
This is the false narrative that has yet to stick but that doesn’t stop the media from trying. They want to control the conversation and reach farther and farther until they pull everyone in. Rachel Maddow even went as far to say that the ENTIRE Democrat Party is behind Gay Marriage. They hate and reverse thinking grows every day on people who have weak minds and no time for thought.
I am happy to have come out as a straight man! Where’s the media love now??
