Bisexual NFL player: ‘Michael Sam does not speak for all gay men’
A bisexual player in the NFL has attacked Michael Sam, saying he does not “speak for all gay men”.
He said: “The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I’m just saying there’s some famous people, and I’m not the only one.”
Now TMZ reports that it spoke to a bisexual man in the NFL, who said: “As a bisexual man, I just feel like Michael Sam does not speak for all gay men.
“He has his own opinion … but DON’T say that we don’t have the courage to come out. It’s totally wrong. Just speak for yourself. No one else.
“It’s no one’s business what my sexuality is. You should like me for me … not for who I choose to be with.”
Continuing, he said: “I feel the NFL isn’t ready for people to be open about it. Or the General Managers for that matter.”
Despite those opinions, the player says he believes Sam DID get a fair shot to make a team — “I just don’t think he performed well.”
