  • Ex-Minnesota Vikings player Chris Kluwe has a bombshell piece on the sports blog Deadspin today about how he believes he was released from the team because he speaks out on behalf of gay rights. It’s extremely damaging to members of the Vikings’ management and ends with this inspiring comment: “ Never be afraid to do what’s right. If no one ever says anything, nothing ever changes.” [Deadspin]

Progressive cultural change doesn’t always happen quickly, but when it does, it’s a beautiful thing. Take the National Football League, professional football’s bastion and, up until now, a rather conservative place. That may all change now that Alan Gandreau, a kicker from Middle Tennessee State University, has become a viable NFL prospect.

Gendreau, who is the top scorer in his school’s conference, came out at an early age and dated boys in high school. “When you know, you know,” he told OutSports.com. Keep reading »

“I am a heterosexual guy in a tough macho sport, which is exactly the reason I feel a duty to say I support gay marriage and gay rights. I have nothing to gain personally from supporting this issue, and that’s the point. Society as a whole is better when there is equality, and I want to live in a country where everyone has the same rights because we all benefit from that. What people overlook is that this isn’t a sex issue, it’s a love issue. There’s no justifiable reason for trying to get in the way of two people who love each other.”

–UFC fighter Rashad “Suga” Evans has added his name to a brief filed by NFL players Chris Kluwe and Brendon Ayanbadejo urging the Supreme Court to overturn a ban on same-sex marriage. He also issued this beautiful statement to Outsports to show his support for marriage equality and equal rights. Huge props to Evans for taking such a powerful stand, and here’s hoping more athletes follow his lead! [Outsports]

I hate football, mostly because I don’t understand it, and I think it’s at once smarter and dumber than me. But all that’s about to change, because the new love of my life is Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, and I’m intent to prove my love to him. You see, last week Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo spoke out in favor of gay marriage. That raised the ire of Maryland politician Emmet C. Burns, who wrote a strongly-worded letter to the owner of the Baltimore Ravens, insisting that Ayanbadejo be prohibited from speaking his views. That didn’t sit well with Kluwe, so he posted an open letter to Burns, in which he warns that “you may want to hire an intern to help you with the longer words.” After the jump, Kluwe’s full, amazing and hilarious letter.
