Now no matter what your position is on homosexuality, Paula Deen's comparison should be a head-scratcher to even the most unread anti gay extremist. Let's see, one is ALREADY RICH, and just looking to regain fame & future earnings that she never really lost. The other is a currently employed college student, who has jeopardized his future earnings & privacy-FOREVER-in a struggle to live life freely as he wants to live, Hmmmm.
Making matters worse, no one in Deen's camp ever saw fit to mention that using phrases like "that black football player" are not a good idea-especially when coming out of the mouth of someone who has been accused of being racist. But alas, this dummy will continue to get richer, and those of us who would criticize this will be labeled as overly sensitive-if not something worse. It is what it is.
