Connor Barwin has spoken out. He has dropped the hammer.
He has expressed a normal and popular sentiment about homosexuality that feels familiar to all of us.
And this is Headline News because Connor Barwin is a football player, one who plays in the NFL, where, you know, me make bang noise.
Here's the bomb: Barwin, a linebacker for the Houston Texans, is not gay, but if he were, he doesn't think it would be that big of a deal in the Houston Texans' locker room, or any other in the NFL.
"I think right now it would probably be hard for a guy to come out in our locker room just because of the awkwardness," Barwin said. "But I think they would be surprised at how welcoming people would be. I think at the end of the day guys care about how you play football, because we're all so competitive about winning that if there is a guy who comes out as gay in our locker room and he's a good football player, people aren't going to care about that. I think that's the honest truth."
