The homophobia that flows through the NFL is not just with poorly educated players saying stupid things. It’s central to the whole system. University of Colorado tight end Nick Kasa was asked by a team executive at the combine, “Do you like girls?”
Meanwhile, NFL teams are openly investigating whether former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o is gay after his bizarre relationship with a nonexistent woman deal.
It’s incredibly depressing and no doubt deeply intimidating for gay players afraid to come out. Not only do they face homophobia from teammates, despite the brave few speaking out, but from the entire structure of the NFL.
