SF 49ers Player Chris Culliver

I'm a Hateful Bastard

... But Only In My Head

San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver says HE's not really a homophobe ... but the voices inside his head sure are.

Culliver has released a nonsensical, insincere statement to save his ass after saying gay players are not welcome in his team's locker room and should stay in the closet until 10 years after they retire.

"The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel," Culliver said.  

"It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience."

So the following questions are raised:
1) Is Chris' head disembodied from the rest of him?
2) Will he say or do anything to play in the Super Bowl no matter how detestable he is?
3) Doth he protest too much?

Basically the 49er organization made him apologize. The 49ers thought the best way for him to play is apologize. The NFL might fine him for his comments, but that is as far as it will go for this disgusting human being.

How ironic is it that White Americans felt the same way about this Culliver character and his race not too long ago.

Most people feels the way he does, but in today's society the pressure to be tolerant of perverted behavior has become enormous. He has the right to his opinion without apology. Anyone that thinks homosexuality is normal is really screwed up. Yea, planting your man meat in someone's poop shoot is normal. OK. It's not normal it's sick.
