Chris Kluwe Calls Out People Who Claim Marriage Equality Confuses Children


Unfortunately, what every single one of these shrieking harpies fails to realize is that they’re not, in fact, thinking of the children when they start spewing their ignorance. They’re thinking of themselves. They’re thinking of their own inability to accept the fact that two people of the same sex might happen to love each other, but they have an inkling that if they say they can’t accept it, they’re going to be called bigots, so they mask their fear and stupidity with the strongest shield they can think of.

The children.”

–NFL athlete/LGBT ally Chris Kluwe on people who use “it’s for the children” in their argument against same-sex marriage and other hot button issues, in his just-published book Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies excerpted exclusively on

    Amazing that some of our biggest allies are straight male athletes.

    confuses the children? i seem to recall a vid of this boy about 5-6y/o..

    so boys are husbands and girls are wives so your are husbands…. never saw two husmands before. then goes off to play some game.

    kids are the most accepting of all things. if it is presented to them as being ok, they will then accept it as it is.

    Waiting for some of Queerty’s usual trolls to complain that this amazing hetero athlete is supporting us while also fully clothed.

    Chris Kluwe’s twitter account is… fantastic fun. Yes he’s geeky and into video games, but he posts so many equal right links on his account it is humbling in a way. I am so thankful for his place in the world.

    Mr. Kluwe is spot on the mark, these right wing conservative extremist jack-asses think the general public is too stupid to figure this out??? No wonder the TPod/PartyofNo is on the way out! Good Lawd Amighty! The whole scenario is out of 1984!

  • Polaro

    Heroic, articulate, persuasive. What’s not to like?

  • balehead

  • balehead

    I just don’t know what to think about Chris Kluwe or that Brendon Ayanbadejo.So Chris has a book. Now lets wait on Brendons. And all the paid speaking engagements to follow. I just hope that this is coming from a sincear place. But for me, something about these two come off as a bit strange. A bit obsessed with gays. They just kinda present themselves to the world as if gays NEED them. And whats up with Chris’s Acustic meatus & Tragus. Did he have a lift?
