Well, thanks for showing tha love Tim Hardaway!

(CBS4) MIAMI Former Miami Heat superstar Tim Hardaway told a local sports radio show that he "hates gay people."Hardaway made the comments while he was being interviewed by Dan Le Batard on 790 the Ticket Wednesday afternoon.The five time All Star was asked how he would deal with a gay teammate."First of all I wouldn't want him on my team," said Hardaway. "Second of all, if he was on my team I would really distance myself from him because I don't think that's right and I don't think he should be in the locker room when we're in the locker room."Le Batard took Hardaway to task, pointing out that his comments were 'flatly homophobic' and bigoted, but that only seemed to stir up the former point guard."Well, you know, I hate gay people," Hardaway said in response to Le Batard. "I let it be known I don't like gay people. I don't like to be around gay people. I'm homophobic. It shouldn't be in the world, in the United States, I don't like it."

Even better, comments from everyday folk to this story:

-He's straight and proud of it.....he just told it like it is. Give him credit!!! Sheri Stacy, Ohio

-Tim is right. Not only is it disgusting behavior, it is unnatural, unhealthy, and irreligious. Unatural because it goes against nature.(No explanation needed on this one) Unhealthy, because homosexuals die 20years sooner than heterosexuals and they have more suicides and homosides. Irreligious, because all three of the worlds great religions condem the behavior. FYI Believing homosexuality to be these things does not make one homophobic. I have no fear of them. - Steven Tanner, Laguna Beach

-Way to go Tim! I'll bet the little f**-puppies were pissing in their pantyhose! In the first place there is nothing gay about them - they are sick aberrations of nature: they are fa***ts. And where they came up with that stupid 'homophobic' crap is beyond me - phobic denotes an irrational fear, and we don't fear them (except in public restrooms and parks); we simply dislike them intensely, because most of them are really deeply disturbed individuals and give normal people the creeps. Somehow the liberal media has decided to become the champions of these sick things, and treat normal people like the sick ones - typical liberal dementia. Thanks for the breath of fresh air Mr. Hardaway! -- Jim Helvey, St. Petersburg (straight)

-I totally support that Tim had to say because I feel the same way myself. Over the years I have fired four people that have worked for me because I found out that they were gay. Homosexuality is completely and totally UNACCEPTABLE! -- Tom Retzlaff, San Antonio, Texas (Straight)

-Tim's opinion is the common opinion of Heterosexuals. It's nothing new, so I don't see why it should be seen as offending.The idea of Homosexuality is flat out sick. Men and women were created the way they were for a purpose. In sex education I was taught that it was Homosexuals who brought about HIV and AIDS. I think it's time more folks gave their honest opinion in public rather than giving sympathetic respect for something that belongs in the same category as mental illness. -- Chris Reinhold, Minneapolis (straight)

-Are you kidding me!! It is about time someone was completely honest about how they feel. I believe more people would be more forthcoming if not for the labels placed upon them for. I believe in what is normal, it is how a species survives. Obviously, gays are in it for one generation, then as a specie they die. So obviously, gays are not normal and people are tired of having to pretend they are. Thank you Tim Hardaway. -- No Name, No Address

Awesome! Thanks America!

I guess we should already know how you feel about this. I always wonder why people have such harsh feelings. Was he raped as a kind? Does he secretly like guys? And it's always surprising when someone who has likely experienced bigotry also exibits it. But then the most racist people I have ever met have been black. And the misogynistic have been women. Go figure.

I feel sick. Thank you for posting those words from "everyday" people. I now live in fear.

Gavin Elster said...

I have just spent the last hour reading responses on other blogs and websites about TH's comments. While your post does show a huge amount of hate there is SO MUCH MORE out there. I'm truly freaked out at how this is acceptable. I am in shock to see how many hateful people there are and how comfortable they are with their hate. Where do we go from here?

I think "hate" was a strong word, he should have said he felt sorry for them. But theres nothing wrong with saying it doesn't belong in this world. It is a destructive lifestyle. Aids in the US is still predominately a homosexual issue. over 90% of all aids cases in last year were gay males, yet you push it as an alternative to our children? Shame on you!

Gavin Elster said...

AIDS and GAY do not go hand in hand. If someone is gay it doesn not mean they have AIDS. ANON is insane.

WAT said...

Gavin, don't let this hate surprise you or get you down. It is real and truly does exist. Yes, in these supposed advanced times. Did ya miss the message boards when "Brokeback Mountain" was the big film around? Plenty of anti-gay people were posting all kinds of terrible mean hurtful things. We are not liked by many, what can you do? Humanity is tragically doomed, for love is not what most want unfortunately.

As for anonymous, yeah, shame on us for pushing our orientation on the children. No, no, I say to you, SHAME ON YOU FOR BREEDING MORE HOMOSEXUALS AND PUSHING YOUR LIVES ON US. After all, it is heterosexuals who reproduce and create more homosexuals right? STOP FUCKING BREEDING THEN.

Thank you, and good night.

Its me Gavin (at work) and yes I am depressed. (yes i did miss the online discussion about brokeback BTW)
Its the peopel who think that gay people are less than human that get me all worked up. The bulls*it about being against God because you cannot procreate is a bunch o crap. What ??? Are we supposed to kill or hate all the old people or streile people for wasting space on this fine CATHOLIC planet we live on. FU*K ALL YA"LLS. I'm grabbing the first spaceship outta here!

Bill German said...

what the fuck is a "homosides"? great post. we live in a very very evil world. i look back at my life and i have had a ball being gay. cum to think of it, i have had two balls being gay. btw, who gives a fuck what people think anyways. i am way too old to care anymore. now get me a fucking beer.

Those poor sick bastards. Pray for their ignorant souls.

I really feel sad that Hardaway would express such harsh and hateful words. But on the other hand, I think it's really good that he is honest about what he thinks, the only way to fight bigotry is to hear about it and see people express it, because then there can be a dialogue. If no one talks about it, maybe because of political correctness, then the hate stays swept under the rug, and if that happens, then nothing will change and people will persist with their hateful feelings and ideas.

Dave Evanns said...

Yeah this is retarded. I am straight, but do not fear gay people. I have known and worked with a handful of gay people, some were hilarious, others, not so much. Either way, it is ones choice on how to live their life. There are risks on boths sides, and AIDS is present in both straight and gay people. it is a matter of being careful and smart.
I have never liked Tim Hardaway for some reason, and now I have a reason to back that up.
And sad thing is, hate is so widespread in this country, whether it be gays or blacks. Really sad that we will never be a uniform nation.

In response to Gavin wanting to grab the next spaceship out of here: I saw a preview for the new Sarah Silverman show on Comedy Central. Her line paraphrased is, "If we can put a man on the moon, we can put a man with AIDS on the moon. Then we can put all the poele with AIDS on the moon." At least she says stuff with irony. Irony is a device beyond the bigots.

Also, it's not so much the Catholic planet as the Baptist/puritanical country. I know priests that have councelled an aquaintence of mine not to try turning straight. It's a funny position with the Catholic chirch: they recognize homosexuality as being a natiral state of being, however since sex is mearly to procreate and only allowable within the confines of a church sanctioned marriage, gay sex is a sin.

I don't feel angry or sad that this faggot is against gays. He is just another malignant tumor on the face of humanity that needs to evolve. Its not like the sun sets on his stupid ass every day. Everyone has an opinion and in the gay world. an opinion like that is worth a dollar stuck up a gay strippers ass.

Which is pretty worthless.
