He is going to get crushed for this, but it is ok to have an opinion. He didn’t say anything malicious, it was just a question. It is a question that a lot of men have, but are afraid to ask. To answer his question, I would need him to open up his mind a bit. It is human nature to believe people should just like what society says they should like. If a man doesn’t like sports, people look at him weird. If a woman doesn’t like shoes, other women are confused. Society beats certain stereotypes into our head, but the reality is we should only worry about ourselves. If Jason Collins like men, more power to him, more beautiful women for Mike Wallace and I. That is how Wallace should be looking at it, instead of trying to figure out what makes someone else tick. Athletes have to be careful on social media, because people are quick to jump on them (another societal thing, mob mentality).  I don’t think Mike Wallace said anything wrong, just said something that wasn’t politically correct and that will get him in a little hot water.  It is sad, because there should be open dialogue and if someone doesn’t agree with someone’s sexual orientation that is their right.  As long as they aren’t discriminating or calling them out of their name, people are entitled to their opinions.
PLAYERS: Mike Wallace
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
