Great video about the pseudo-uproar over what parents will tell their children about the NFL’s St. Louis Rams drafting openly-gay player Michael Sam this weekend.
“Dad, why do homophobic men think about their penises and gay-guy penises all the time?”
DAD: Son, I want to talk to you about Michael Sam. Do you know who that is?
SON: Um, no.
DAD: Well, he’s a football player that was just drafted into the NFL, and a lot of people are really upset about it.
SON: Why are they upset? Did he abuse his child?
DAD: No, that was Michael Boley who’s still playing for the Cincinatti Bengals.
SON: Did he get arrested for trying to solicit a prostitute?
DAD: No, that’s Quentin Groves, who’s still playing for the Cleveland Browns.
SON: Was he arrested for assaulting his ex-wife and mother of his child?
DAD: No, that was Daryl Washington who’s currently playing for the Arizona Cardinals…
SON: Was he arrested on three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon?
DAD: No, that was Aldon Smith who’s currently on the San Francisco 49ers roster.
SON: Is there video of him dragging his unconscious fiancée out of an elevator after a reported altercation?
DAD: Nope, that’s Ray Rice, he’s still on the Baltimore Ravens.
SON: Did he reportedly rape a woman…
It goes on for another minute.
