What’s Up With All These Homophobic MMA Fighters Lately
Yet another foot in mouth scenario, in what appears to be a growing problem another MMA Fighter has said something so homophobic and flat out stupid as he tries to compare homosexuality to pedophilia. Throughout his plethora of spelling errors and overall douchey comments he refuses to see how marriage equality for same sex couples today is the same as marriage equality for interracial couples. Here’s more:
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Josh Thomson took to his Facebook page on June 10 to pose a controversial question, “Should you be allowed to marry whoever you want? Before you answer that, should u be allowed to have more than 1 wife?”
The question lead to a lengthy discussion, resulting in Thomson comparing marriage equality to polygamy, pedophilia and incest and insinuating that R&B singer R. Kelly would attempt to marry young girls.
As Towleroad points out, Thomas chimed in when a friend asked, “Should you be allowed to decide what other sound-minded adults do with their lives?”
I’m only asking a question. My next question is, should siblings be allowed to marry siblings? My point is, where do you draw the line? I personally don’t care who you marry but I also am smart enough to know that it opens a gateway to men/women trying to marry young kids, siblings marrying eachother and people having multiple husbands an wives. You have to think all of these things are okay otherwise your stopping them from being happy as well which is hypocrisy. Equality doesn’t stop with gay marriage, it just starts with it.
Later he expressed how same sex marriage would lead to further incidents of incest. Overall very ignorant and inaccurate comments. You would think that members of a sport that constantly cradle each other while locking each others heads in front of their genitals would be a bit more understanding that appearances are not always what they seem and if there’s something you don’t understand you should ask instead of making stupid blank statements that are never ever true.
