Michael is now the first openly gay football player to be drafted by the NFL, as a supplemental pic in the 7th and final round of the NFL draft this past weekend. He played his college ball at Missouri, and the St. Louis Rams drafted him, so at least he has the comfort of staying in his home state. The reason I say that the American public isn’t ready for this much gayness is simple: I like to think of myself as open-minded, liberal, accepting, and I am a known homosexual. When Michael received the news that he had been drafted and kissed and hugged his little boyfriend, I cringed a little and had a small ick factor moment, and I’m a Gay! Thank you for being a trailblazer and brave and unabashedly kissing that sketchy little white boy Michael, I just hope you will have the strength to persevere when all the bullshit starts to fly.
