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?

i'm not saying you have to agree with the gay lifestyle or anyone elses but i feel we do need to respect one another, i'm a single straight mother, my 6 year old son once said the word f***** and i told him that's very disrespectful and i will not have that kind of talk, he apologized and has not said that word since, respect one another is all i'm saying

My question is does he hate gays (gay men) because he doesn't want to be hit on by them in the locker room so would he be ok with females being in his locker room or are they not welcome as well because they might hit on him in his locker room and if Females are allowed is it just females he finds attractive that are allowed so ugly chicks need not apply! I mean seriously what's the problem here????

Here's what I know. Many gay men are also uncomfortable being ogled in locker rooms. Most gay men are not looking for action in a locker room. Gay men are often uncomfortable in locker rooms because of homophobic 'locker room talk' and can feel a sense of threat. Mythological gay rape squads do not exist. It would be major news. Any fear is largely unjustified. I also know that the biggest misconception of all - that narrow-minded straight guys rule over locker rooms, bathrooms, or public spaces, and dictate codes of behavior strictly on their terms - is over. Wrap yourselves around it.
