And just like that, Super Bowl XLVII gets its anti-gay angle

by Jeremy Hooper

Take it away, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver:

"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.

Culliver went on to say that any gay player should come out ten years after he leaves the league.

So to recap: A player from America's most LGBT-friendly city will soon play in a game that the openly gay Neil Patrick Harris is promoting, the incredibly pro-gay Beyoncé is headlining, and the joyfully outspoken Brendon Ayanbadejo has said he will use to help make his support for same-sex marriage known. I'm not saying Mr. Culliver can't speak out and say he "[doesn't] do gay people." He totally can do it; it's a free country.

I am, however, saying that Chris Culliver might not be playing in the league that he thinks he is. The ball is moving forward and the Super Bowl parties are getting more festive.
