Queer Quote: Chris Kluwe Vigorously Defends Equalty

The brouhaha over Baltimore Raven player Brendan Ayanbadejo's vocal support for marriage equality sparked by an African-American Maryland state legislator who wrote to the owner of the Ravens attempting to muzzle players from speaking out has developed a new wrinkle with Minnesota Vikings player Chris Kluwe stepping up to vigorously express his support for Ayabadejo and marriage equality itself.
"I can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero effect on your life. They won't come into your house and steal your children. They won't magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster. They won't even overthrow the government in an orgy of hedonistic debauchery because all of a sudden they have the same legal rights as the other 90 percent of our population—rights like Social Security benefits, child care tax credits, Family and Medical Leave to take care of loved ones, and COBRA healthcare for spouses and children.

"You know what having these rights will make gays? Full-fledged American citizens just like everyone else, with the freedom to pursue happiness and all that entails. Do the civil-rights struggles of the past 200 years mean absolutely nothing to you?


"P.S. I've also been vocal as hell about the issue of gay marriage so you can take your "I know of no other NFL player who has done what Mr. Ayanbadejo is doing" and shove it in your close-minded, totally lacking in empathy piehole and choke on it. Asshole."
Now that's how you respond to blatant homophobia!
