WHATEVER YOU SAY, MAN

NFL quarterback and manly man Aaron Rogers’ is not gay ya’ll. His (male) assistant/former roommate/supposed lover threw some shade on Twitter and the media assumed there was trouble on lover’s lane and all sorts of things came to light. Aaron Rogers addressed the gay controversy by saying”I am not gay” and “I really, really like women” but he did not speak on the matter any further. I subscribe to the feeling that I am going to believe you when you tell me who you are, to the point where if you want to tell me that you are a purple alien from the planet Shmee which has yet to be discovered, if you believe it, I’m with ya. So I am not going to go on a “yes you are so gay don’t deny it” Aaron Rogers rant, because if Aaron Rogers says he is straight, well then, that is what he is. What I will say about it is that I find sadness in the fact that he had to go on his radio show and tell people he is not gay and follow it by saying he “really, really likes women.” All that needed to be said was “I am not gay.” You know, a lot of gay men “really, really like women” they just don’t want to have sex with them. Doesn’t make them any less gay. Whatever, point being, we almost had a significant sea change in the NFL and instead we were reminded nothing has changed. For more proof see the last paragraph below.

I know some of you reading this read that in River Song’s voice and I love that. Sherlock started in the UK this week and will have had its complete season 3 run before it even reaches the US. Which means either we Americans steal from the BBC Network by streaming the show illegally, or we avoid the Internet completely, or we get spoiled. Those are the options. I don’t like any of them.

PORTRAIT OF COURAGE

To bookend the opening thoughts today, former NFL punter Chris Kluwe wrote and amazing article on the real reasons he was let go of the Minnesota Vikings and the truth behind why he will never work in the NFL again. It is on Deadspin’s Web site where he has written some other great things about his life in the NFL, LGBT issues and gaming. Read them all. (The link will take you to the most recent article).
