Jonathan Vilma Afraid Gay Teammate Would Stare at His Naked Body

Andrea Kremer sat down with NFL players recently to discuss a wide range of locker room topics in the NFL. One hot topic currently is whether or not the NFL is ready for an active, openly gay player. Jonathan Vilma had this to say about his comfort level:

“I think that he would not be accepted as much as we think he would be accepted,” Vilma added. “I don’t want people to just naturally assume, like, ‘Oh, we’re all homophobic.’ That’s really not the case. Imagine if he’s the guy next to me and, you know, I get dressed, naked, taking a shower, the whole nine, and it just so happens he looks at me. How am I supposed to respond?”

This isn’t the first time Vilma has been in hot water over homophobic related comments. He is entitled to his opinion and all that, but it is this type of thinking that keeps active gay players from coming out.

  1. Jonathan Vilma, like all of us had an opinion. His OPINION is just that, an OPINION. Then why for the life of me are we making a big deal over someone else’s opinion. Having said that, here’s my opinion….I THINK HOMOSEXUALS ARE CONFUSED INDIVIDUALS ABOUT THEIR SEXUALITY. IF THE GOOD LORD WANTED YOU TO BE THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU ARE, HE WOULD HAVE MADE YOU THAT WAY…I DON’T CARE IF THE LIBERAL MEDIA WANTS TO LABEL ME AS A HOMOPHOBIC, I WAS NEVER ONE TO BE POLICALLY CORRECT ANYWAY! LABELS DON’T MEAN SQUAT TO ME. Moreover, please explain to me how can two homosexuals procreate and leave a legacy when we are all gone….Folks, we need to wake up and face facts….Homosexuality in all its forms is a detriment to any society. I don’t hate homosexuals, I do hate homosexuality and I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT LIFESTYLE….Is that being homophobic, then so be it!

    • Your entire statement illustrates your ignorance of the subject. The bottom line is that no one chooses their sexuality, you are attracted to who you like naturally. Please enlighten us on when you made the choice to be heterosexual. The same things you said were said about interracial marriage years ago, just goes to show you that bigotry and hatred lives on.

  2. It’s really no big deal. They have been there all the time, just ‘in the closet’. Once you understand that they have been seeing you all the time, you get over it. I am not a lesbian but have had associates who were. I treated them just like a guy I wasn’t interested in and they left me alone. More than I could say for the guys. But, deal with it. If he touches you in the shower just punch him.

  3. Yardman for president! You said what many of us are scared too due to the liberal media labeling us homophobs. I am not scared of the lost individuals. Its the act!
