Big news out of the sports world. Michael Sam Defensive End from Missouri, who was the 2013 SEC Defensive Player of the Year has stated publicly that he is gay. I for one am not ashamed to admit I support gays and gay rights, but really is this still an issue? I get it, it can be hard, especially for the younger generation of homosexuals. Having to fear what their peers may think or say definitely cannot be easy for them to come out and say they are gay, but when a big name sports star like Michael Sam admittedly announces to the media he is , it makes it easier for those stuck to come out and admit to others of their homosexuality as well. My point in all of this though, is that for me, I do not care if you are straight, bisexual, gay, tranny, etc. I could care less what your sexuality is. What I and the rest of society for that matter should care about is how you are as a person, regardless of sexual orientation. I applaud Michael Sam being comfortable enough to tell the public his story, but at the same time it should be a non-issue as it is now 2014, and we as a society need to accept the fact we all have different preferences in many things, (i.e. music, clothing style, favorite color, sports, etc.) and our sexual preferences fall under that same logic!
