I don't see the problem other than that she should be in the kitchen instead of tweeting...

Seriously?

This kind of talk was used against blacks not so long ago. If people hadn't stood up to the haters back then, Vilma would not be playing football right now. Vilma needs to remember that when he speaks derogatorily towards people who are "different".

@Crusader -- Cook your own damn dinner, pinhead.

How can you tell the context of what he meant by that? He could have been joking about a friend or something... No news here at all.... She could have taken it all wrong.

He said "Grown men should not have female tendencies. Period."
She said "That's a little sexist\homophobic..."
He told her to shut up.
She asked him if he is kidding.
He said "You don't have to read my tweets".

To me, that is utterly straight-forward. Absolutely there is news here. Vilma has a problem with homosexuals or at minimum cross-dressers and was called out on it -- by a woman -- who he promptly told to shut up. She is also a fan so, another bit of news about how Vilma values his fans. And, I don't know if anyone has noticed but, New Orleans has a substantial gay population who are just as devoted Saints fans as anyone else.

But, of course, there are plenty of guys whose masculinity is threatened by feminine type homosexuals. But, frankly, that s**t is just weak.

Either you are heterosexual man or you aren't. Insisting another human being is wrong for being themselves DOES NOT MAKE YOU MORE OF A MAN. Vilma should know that.

I love the Saints and I like Vilma as the leader of the defense. But, I don't have to love or agree with his prejudices.

"Grown men" are respectful and tolerant of differences.

Vilma is one of the smartest guys on the team. This seems very out of character for him....hard to explain.

I do not see this at all. A man taking care of their offspring is being a father, not feminine.

I hadn't noticed because I don't go looking. For all I care they can be male / female (in whatever way anyone wishes to define that) or can be asexual / bisexual / heterosexual / homosexual. I don't display or discuss my preferences / bias and I don't need to know anyone else's.

All I care for are this or that person is a "good" person and - oh - are you a Saints fan :bng:

To one and all - I wish y'all a healthy and happy New Year. May you get the luck you deserve.

Well I was trying to make a joke. You can go sit on a cactus now.

skymike 12-30-2011 06:18 AM

I was concerned for a moment, when I read the headline.
Then I read the tweets.
pffft. couldnt give two sh**s less. In fact I like him more now.

This is only an issue on SR.

Srgt. Hulka 12-30-2011 06:55 AM

Are you guys kidding me. Go back and read it again. You are really getting worked up over this? Does anybody have the discussion that preceded this? He made a comment about something that was obviosly discussed earlier, and this girl, who he doesn't know from Adam, calls him a homophobe. If a complete stranger confronts me with something like that, just out of the blue, I'm gonna tell them to STFU too! I see no nothing here, just someone trying to irritate Vilma.
