ESPN Stephen A. Smith on Michael Sam NFL Draft Kiss Reaction
Again, Smith insisted that he’s “liberal” in his thinking and “has always been an advocate for civil rights for the gay community,” but at the same time wanted the gay community to understand that “not everybody is going to like you and like what they see.”
“People should have the freedom to not want to be associated with that or not want that in their face,” Smith said of Sam’s public display of affection. “I don’t have a problem with it, but I do respect those that do.”
Nah, the point is - that creating two standards of acceptability for heterosexuals (ok to kiss on t.v.) and homosexuals (“not everybody is going to like you and like what they see.”) is not only unacceptable, it violates the 14th amendment.
(and no - the 14th amendment no more applies here than does Smith’s claim freedom of speech applies- so par for the course.)
