What's the deal, bro?

Nothin' but Net: Collins' announcement drawing reaction | Fox News:

"I'm Black. And I'm gay."

What's with telling us what we already know by looking at you?

He's not the only one.

Is preceding the coming out speech with this racial marker supposed to...what?

Tell us that even though he's Black and Blacks aren't supposed to be gay, he is?

Or that he's a Racially Protected Victim, so don't increase his pain by being homophobic?

It's weird. Like the NJ gov's "I am a gay American."

The NHL did a PSA for their new You Can Play LGBT campaign that featured prominent players saying stuff like, "If you can shoot, you can shoot." Sums up the attitude that most regular people have or will develop: I really don't care if you're gay, we don't have a problem if you do you're job!

But even something as innocuous as a campaign that amounts to "so what?" seems to be going overboard, since Bruins' player Tyler Seguin was reprimanded for including "no homo" in a tweet. Which to me, as a man-loving man, simply means that his statement was not intended in a homoerotic manner! The campaign's founder tweeted in response that the tweet "implies there's something lesser or undesirable about being gay or even perceived as gay." Christ, gays are one of the most thinned-skin groups in the world! If I'm a gay man and took no offense, no offense was offered.

Mind you, I wouldn't mind much if Flyer's center Claude Giroux came out as a consequence of this campaign. What a stud!
