Charles Barkley: A Friend to The Gays

Charles Barkley is already a hero to the heterosexual community after openly admitting to the police his reason for driving drunk was to see a woman who gives the best blowjobs of his life. But many people will be surprised to know he’s also a huge advocate for gay rights and recently stated as much in a lengthy interview with the Washington Post who wanted his reaction to Phoenix Sun president Rick Welts coming out of the closet. (By way of Todd at IDLYITW.)

… Weary of the perception that a majority of straight male athletes are intensely homophobic, Barkley said gay players pose no problem, adding, “Man, we need to outlaw guys who suck at sports.”
“I really like ESPN,” Barkley added. “They do a great job. But like once every two or three months, they bring all these people on there, and they tell me how me and my team are going to respond to a gay guy.
“First of all, every player has played with gay guys. It bothers me when I hear these reporters and jocks get on TV and say: ‘Oh, no guy can come out in a team sport. These guys would go crazy.’ First of all, quit telling me what I think. I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play. … Any professional athlete who gets on TV or radio and says he never played with a gay guy is a stone-freakin’ idiot.”

Charles then goes even further on the topic of discrimination and if you already guessed this quote is going to involve religion, u mad bro? — Wow, that felt exactly as retarded as I thought it would. *punches self in the face*

“First of all, society discriminates against gay people,” Barkley said. “They always try to make it like jocks discriminate against gay people. I’ve been a big proponent of gay marriage for a long time, because as a black person, I can’t be in for any form of discrimination at all.”
Yes, he says, there are whispers and rumors in the NBA.
“We gossiped behind each other’s back before; I’ll be the first to admit that,” he said, before adding, “The first people who whine and complain is them Bible-thumpers, who are supposed to be non-judgmental, who rail against them.
“Hey, man, I don’t worry about what other people do.”

Somewhere, Kirk Cameron and Katt Williams just pulled back the head of a statute to reveal dual firemen poles leading down to the Christ Cave.

KATT: Got your bananas?
KIRK: Yep. Gonna talk about Satan’s breath?
KATT: You know it.
KIRK: Alright, then, let’s fuck some shit up, nigger.
KATT: ‘The hell you just say?
KIRK: Uh, jigger. I need a jigger to pour this drink. Haha!

  4. Does Charles still hate white people?

  5. There is no apps for rough

    • Richard McBeef

      The story is about Sir Charles lovin’ the gays and Liberace has been dead for over 25 years.

    • nahhhhh

      SW has said that chooses pictures that best illustrate/fit the story. The only way this could fit better would be Barkley ranting about arm-hugging useless actors.

    Interesting that Todd at IDLYITW doesn’t have this story up himself but passed it on to Fish instead. It’s like he doesn’t want to ruin his anti-gay street cred or something.

    • yup

      indeed, i don’t get why people link to that misogynist, sexist, homophobic, redneck-hick piece of shit page.

      Barkley owns.

      @yup

      So what are you saying? That hes not a pro “shoving a lifestyle down your throat” gay supporting, white guilt riddled, pacifistic, ignorant voting, muslim supporting, feminist supporting liberal sack of shit?

      AWESOME!!! Thanks for the heads up! I know where to go first from now on.

      Barkley fails in grammar, pronunciation, the english language, posture, education, style and race relations, and especially for being a HUGE hypocrite for marrying into the white race.

      FAIL.

  7. I expected this to end poorly, it didn’t.

    Hey, I love what you do but never comment. I had to for this though! I LOVE Charles Barkley. Love him or hate him, I think he ALWAYS tells it like it is.

  9. Ben: Who’s your favorite New Kid!?
    Charles: Unngh, ung, uhhhhh.
    Ben: Who’s your favorite New Kid!? Say Joey!!

  10. In related news, Charles Barkley has been outlawed from ever playing golf again.

  11. Gay Black Guy

    Im surprised that Charles wasnt complaining about Rick Welts not being black because he needs a black gay because there arent enough black gays in the world.

    CHARLES: Got some bananas negro?
    RICK: Huh? WTF are you talking about Charles?
    CHARLES: You know what Im talking about. Get that shoe polish. Youre black tonight
    RICK: What? Black? You still not happy with blacks being the majority of population in jail and not in gay clubs? Trust me Charles, their getting more man-ass in jail than in the clubs, especially the blacks.
    CHARLES: ‘Thats turrible, turrible I say. Its a turrible conspiracy keepin them blacks in jail like that, unless they gettin man ass daily. Aint enough blacks in sports coaching either (hugs white wife and 2 multi~racial kids.)
    RICK: Charles, you havent really done your part in helping blacks by marrying up and white now, have you?
    CHARLES: Do as I say Rick, not as I do. Now get that shoe polish goin boy! Cover up them white nostrils too. Aint no man juice or tan in a can gonna take care of those things (while reading Forbes, drinking Evian and eating grapefruit with splenda)…Im doing my part Rick, Im doing my part.
