Chris_Culliver_549x338San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver caused quite a stir when he said openly gay players wouldn’t be welcome on his team.  From Yahoo Sports:

“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens.  on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come out 10 years later after that.”

Certainly Culliver won’t be earning a political correctness merit badge anytime soon, but I have to ask do you blame him for not wanting a homosexual in the locker room?  I’m not saying he’s right about saying a openly gay person can’t play football, but there are some obvious logistical concerns.  He has since made a public apology.

What’s interesting is the 49er’s response:

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made [Tuesday], and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

Proudly support the LGBT community…. why proudly?  What is there to be proud of?  Just curious.  Will they say we also proudly support the heterosexual community?

They won’t discriminate, but I guess it’s ok for their players to feel uncomfortable should there ever be a openly gay member in the locker room.  I suppose they’d work to resolve that, but would the openly gay player then feel “discriminated against”?

Is Chris Culliver wrong for feeling uncomfortable?

  1. As a gay person, I don’t see the issue. I’m not in the NFL but there is no one is the locker rooms I go to that I want to see naked. Culliver is just full of himself if he is worried about a gay dude checking him out in the locker room. Get over it! It’s 2013 and gays are everywhere and that’s not going to change!

  2. Shane, both you and Chris Culliver need to get over it. You are, after all, real men, aren’t you?

      1. Is that what you say to Muslims when they complain about Christian Crusaders in the Holy Land?

  3. It’s a locker room, not a brothel. I’ll need more of an explanation before I understand why Chris Culliver is thinking in such a sexual context. I don’t know about him, but I go into locker rooms strictly with the purpose of changing. I have never once wanted to have sex with another man in a locker room.
