I posted about this shining example of ignorance earlier.the former Giants receiver is about as intellectually stupid as I have ever come across.
During the interview, Tyree is asked about the push to legalize gay marriage in the United States — and says if it happens, “This will be the beginning of our country sliding toward … it’s a strong word, but anarchy.”
This is the same kind of rhetoric that was spewed against the the black community, YOUR community, during the civil rights movement. Are you picking up on the similarities Tyree? Clearly not.
Now this brilliant statement, Tyree says, “You can’t teach something that you don’t have … so two men will never be able to show a woman how to be a woman.”
Let me tell you what makes a woman or a man for that matter. It’s values, morals and respecting yourself and others. That is the measure of a person and it has nothing to do with religion. Are you going to tell me that all the singles mothers out there can not teach their sons how to be a man? Is that the morals you were taught? To discredit every single mother or father out there raising their children?
And let me just clear this up for you just in case you don’t really understand what homosexuality is, it’s called being attracted to the same sex as one’s self emotionally and physically. I take it you were absent during sex ed?
And now for my favorite. Tyree: “How can marriage be marriage for thousands of years and now all the sudden because a minority, an influential minority, has a push or agenda … and totally reshapes something that was not founded in our country.”
The black community during the civil rights era was an influential minority that had an agenda to reshape something that actually was also not founded in large parts of our country at that time. And in case you were absent for that class also, the civil rights movement was about equal rights for a minority group (again in which you belong) in which a lot of people at that time fought against it.
Did giving black people’s civil rights cause anarchy? Because if you’re saying that giving gay people equal rights is anarchy then you better be saying it about black people. Because it is the same thing. People said the something during the civil rights era. If black people were given rights, it would be the down fall of society. How would you feel if you did not have the rights that your culture did not have only 50 to 60 years ago? If you could not use the same locker room as your teammates?
Furthermore, marriage it just not about procreation. There are plenty of married straight couples that do not have children. So your argument there is just pure stupidity.
As I said in my earlier post as a black man you should be ashamed of yourself. Every day that you look in the mirror you should know that you are no different than the ignorant bigots 50 years ago who tried to keep your people from the same equal rights.
