Terry Crews

Gay NFL Players Have It

As Tough As Gay Soldiers

4/5/2013 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

040513_terry_crews_launchIf a gay NFL player is about to come out publicly ... football player-turned actor Terry Crews thinks the guy's facing a huge challenge due to what he calls ... "ultra-badass" machismo.

Terry's known for his tough guy acting roles now, but also played 7 seasons in the NFL -- and told us it's harder to come out in pro football than any other sport "because of the violent nature of it."

He added, "It's almost like the military."

As for whether the rumors of a player coming out are true -- Terry definitely has an opinion ... one that's tied to Prez Obama.

Just watch.

Personally, I don't care if somebody is gay or not, but I feel like all this gay stuff is being shoved down our throats anymore (No pun intended) As far as the NFL, unless you are an unreplacable superstar like Tom Brady of Peyton Manning, If a guy comes out as gay, he will be cut so fast his head will spin. That is the NFL, political correctness or not

THAT IS A PERSONAL THING. It's like asking someone about what they do exactly in bed. Even a straight person does not always want to answer that question. I think that some gay men would rather keep that private. Obviously there are those who like to shout it from the mountain tops; but, let's respect the ones who'd like to keep it private. Amen.

They are plenty of Gays in Every Sport. So what. Why do they have to come out. Are they fvcking in the locker room? What are your sexual preferences? Tell me yours, I'll tell you mine.

Here is an idea..... NFL players STFU about their sex life and play football and attempt to earn some of the outrageous $$ you are paid. Soldiers STFU about their sex life and defend our country which we thank you. The sex life has NOTHING to do with either purpose of these groups. So STFU about it!!! Period!!!

Man, there's like a million of 'em.

And, as usual, the queers -- with the cheerful prompting of the assclown liberal media -- just GOTTA tell everyone else about it.

You see, they just MUST have the acceptance and approval of everyone else. They can't just shut their mouths about it because they're demon-ridden souls who cannot stand alone in the confines of their own personal conscience.

Yeah, I guess you can say they're similar. Except for the part where NFL players make millions of dollars to play for 16 weeks a year and go home to their fabulous mansions every night. Gay soldiers make about $5.00 an hour and those who are stationed in battle zones live in fear for their lives 24 hours a day.

Other than that, they're exactly the same.

Remember Hitchens' "God is Not Great: Religion Poisons Everything?". Well he also wrote extensively about the sexual effects. Forced Cir***cision, All Male Priesthoods and Monks, Choir Boys and the Castrato. Men in Dresses Bejewled and with funny hats and what not. Sounds gay to me, so just be careful about the effects of the made up 'gay' lifestyle, the filthy anal sex and associated coprophagia and the associated disease and psychiatric consequences or enforcing a vile lie on children and the horrific sequelae. Cogito ergo sum. Perversion also poisons everything, even you. God has nothing to do with this argument and as there is no evidence for this lie, nothing to do with this disgusting, filthy, dangerous and diseased choice. This is what they WANT to do, they could stop. They are not going to die if they don't get to engage in this repellent activity.
