Manny Pacquiao, Sarangani province congressman as well as an obviously famous boxer, is letting his mouth get him in trouble. From the Bloody Elbow:
“It’s common sense. Do you see any animals that go male to male, or female to female? So the animals are even better (than humans),” Pacquiao said with a chuckle. “Because they know how to distinguish from male to male or female to female. Right? Now if we allow male to male or female to female, then that makes us worse than animals.”
Let me start by saying he did issue an apology on his Twitter account, but it’s so transparent he is just trying to save face. He wouldn’t have had those comments if it wasn’t coming from some deeper seeded belief- that is completely false. There are 500 species, everything from gut worms to primates, that have been documented to engage in homosexual behavior.
The worst part of this is the position he holds in the outside of boxing. Sure athletes don’t have to be perfect in their beliefs, but if you hold a government position you should, at least, understand what you’re talking about.
