Michael Sam was drafted by an NFL team, jumped up and smooched his boyfriend. Most Americans, I think, didn’t think twice about it. Obviously, gay folk were pretty pleased.
However, the homophobes have lost no time in publicly demonstrating their bigotry.
Consider Bryan Fischer’s nonsensical editorial demonstrates the link between sexism and homophobia (emphasis added):
They knew the entire league would be tagged as a bunch of homophobic bigots if Sam wasn’t picked, and the NFL long ago lost whatever testosterone they once had that might have enabled them to stand up to the bullying of homosexual activists.
