The Super Bowl is becoming all about the gays! Certainly better than all about the Harbaughs, I’d argue. Focus on the Family is gonna need three uncomfortable Tim Tebow commercials to counter this.
People have been pressing Ravens special teamer and gay marriage advocate, Brandon Ayanbadejo, to use the game as a platform for his views. It was revealed the other day that former 49ers tackle Kwame Harris faced charges for assaulting a former boyfriend because the ex poured soy sauce on his rice at a restaurant.
Now we find out that San Francisco corner Chris Culliver told Artie Lange on Media Day that a gay player would not be welcome on the team and expressing it in a highly innuendo-laden way.
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”
Does this put the 49ers at a gay tolerance disadvantage? Not something that should happen with a San Francisco team, because regional stereotypes and such. To be fair, 49ers players expressed support for Kwame Harris after his charges were announced. And it’s not like every Ravens player is cool with the gays. Matt Birk don’t do the gay guys either.
