Recently, Christopher Clemons of the Seattle Seahawks said that any NFL player who comes out and reveals that his is gay…that would be considered a selfish act. This reminds me of a story from my childhood…
When I was in high school, one of my classmates noticed that I was listening to Depeche Mode on my walkman and teased me for being gay because I liked Depeche Mode. Unfortunately for him, I wasn’t gay. His rationale was that everyone in the group Depeche Mode was gay…so therefore if I listened to them…then I was gay by association. He teased me while wearing a Judas Priest t-shirt. Recently, I heard through the grapevine that he’s come out of the closet. Exactly.
