I am sick to fucking death of people calling for people to be cancelled purely because of their beliefs and/or opinions.
Latest is Israel Folau. Hilariously, and very refreshingly, he refused to back down from his twitter post. But my god check that article too, for the line about “football players caught Liking the tweet”. In other words, there are actually people sat there clicking to view who liked someone’s tweet and then reporting on it. There’s a whole world out there, go out and live in it, you people!
I don’t share his view or opinion of gay people but let’s instil some common sense to this one shall we: if some part time hobby player tweeted out “I’m an LGBTQI+ ally, #LoveIsLove!!” would you insist that that person automatically be given a place in a top rank team? Sorry what was that..? “No“….? So then why are people calling for the reverse to happen?
If he was beating up gay people sure – kick him out instantly!! Errrrr but he wasn’t doing that…was he.
Sorry for the breaking news but just like being straight doesn’t affect your ability on the pitch, being gay doesn’t affect it, being a gay rights supporter doesn’t affect it, being what could be interpreted as homophobic doesn’t affect it. Are there people who are actually going to argue that fact…..?
