Rashad Evans: I support gay marriage and gay rights

Quote:
的've never been a homophobe, never understood what that is all about. I knew some people who were gay and never cared about their sexuality. But at the same time, I didn't fully understand the issues around gay people until my friend BA started telling me about his full public support for gay marriage. We talked about the issue and I decided its not enough to not be against a minority, if you want things to go better for them you have to speak up with them.

的'm a UFC fighter, a macho-type sport. I am a heterosexual guy in a tough macho sport, which is exactly the reason I feel a duty to say I support gay marriage and gay rights.

的 have nothing to gain personally from supporting this issue, and that's the point. Society as a whole is better when there is equality, and I want to live in a country where everyone has the same rights because we all benefit from that.

展hat people overlook is that is isn't a sex issue, its a love issue. There's no justifiable reason for trying to get in the way of two people who love each other.

的 have kids. I don't want them growing up in a society where they, or their friends, could be second class citizens based on which person they fall in love with or who they want to be happy with.

Just when I started badmouthing the guy, he gets quoted as saying something totally on the nose and completely awesome

Well Said Rashad!

Only an ignorant fool wouldn't. Racism and homophobia are the truest forms of ignorance. That said, I do think marriage is a heavily out dated tradition and I probably won't ever get married in my life. I just don't see how this special ceremony and a ring which likely causes more stress and worry through the preparation is a way to prove you love some one. I have nothing against people that want to get married, I just get a tad bit annoyed when people frown at me for saying I don't ever want to get married.

I still think Rashad's a moron but he's right in this one instance. Statistically speaking he'd have to be right once. It's like having 2 full moons in a month or a Blackzilian winning.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Who cares? I have no idea why MMA sites are posting this and acting like it's interesting.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Bro, this is BIG news. This means Rashad is coming out the closet. There were always the signs:
  • Being a strong wrestler (wrestling is kinda gay). LOL.
  • Nipple tweaks before each fight.
  • Almost kissing Ramapage on TUF.
  • Getting divorced to enjoy the single life in S. Florida.
  • Constantly touching Lil Nog's hands during their fight.
  • Allowing Chael Sonnen to lick his shoe.

Well that's hard evidence right there.

Is he now divorced? his wife was so annoying sitting cage side screeching through his fights. A bit like Woodley's momma on the Strikeforce cards.
