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?

How dare he! The audacity of this ignorant "icon" is appalling. Not even 60 years ago, his ancestors were the segregated minority. If everyone was allowed to continue to be hateful and continue on their bigoted endeavors, he wouldn't be raking in the millions he does as a professional NFL player. Segregation doesn't end at your race, it ends when everyone is allowed the same rights, period! This is shameful, and really disappointing. And for him to try and back-up his statement by sounding like a Schizophrenic maniac only lessens his credibility, and intellect. What a shame.

I find it funny that a lot of you who hate gays and their lifestyle come to a site every day that is run by a gay host and have half a staff that are gay. It's your right to hate anybody you want, but to promote a lifestyle you disagree with is just silly.

I think anyone with an advanced psychology degree, like myself, can see this troubled dumb ass is simply bi-curious. The thoughts in his head are telling him that he wants to kiss a man hahaha....

Karl Pilkington has similar ideas about how the head, or the brain operates separately from the self.

Gay is the new black. Blacks have had the floor for years, complaining about how their they weren't being treated right or how they were second class citizens. Well look at them now. Bashing another group and saying " oh we can't say anything or we might offend them". You are the last group who should be trash talking anyone. Pot meet kettle.
