    I want to send him back in time. A time when the phrase, “Giving rights to Blacks will force my kids to be taught that non-white people are normal.” might be overheard.

  2. Kanga says

    So every heterosexual that is married is “normal”? Please. This man and his ilk have such a narrow view of our society and are so enveloped in their breeder conceit that it makes my skin crawl.

  3. Roger says

    There is are plenty of parochial schools in NY where Mr. Tyree’s children can be educated in the ways of bigotry so he need not fear a public school equality threat, jeez.

    Hate to break it to the dumbasses speaking for NOM and supporting NOM, but no matter how you look at it scientifically, homosexual behavior is normal. It is to be expected in a random distribution. It is not affected by treatment or experimentation. It is not due to illness or disease, nor is it handicapping. Moreover if by natural you mean it occurs in nature, it’s even natural. Time to start calling NOM what it really is The National Organization of Lying Bigots.

    This moron things homosexuals are not normal while I spend every day on news websites reading how parents are killing their babies in microwaves or drowning them in bathtubs, robbing stores and killing everyone inside, or a man keeping his own daughter and the children he has with her from raping her for years all locked in a basement for over a decade. The one common denominator among all these instances? ALL HETEROSEXUAL.

  6. Attmay says

    I support his right to marry any black man he wants.

    Homosexuality is not only normal, but in a world plagued by overpopulation and the pollution that comes with (I’m looking at YOU, China and India), it is a virtue.

    @Tessie Tura: ROTFLMAO!

  7. William says

    This is the root of the battle. The bigots continue to indoctrinate their sheep and other dimwits like former (?) drug addict and serial bastard-maker Tyree with lies, lies and more lies. The same lies that Anita Bryant and others used. Go to any of these evangelical churches and family (hate) groups and you';; find these tapes of the folsom street fair circa 1989, the raunchiest parts. They have been shown to the sheep for 20+ years and told THIS is the homosexual. They then make it sound like their are only about 5000 of them and they are all in San Francisco or NYC and prey on children. Meanwhile, the preachers selling this tripe are whacking off to it all and raping the children of their flock. For a dolt with so many demons of his own, it’s an easy sell for someone like Tyree who need to spread such lies to deflect from his multiple faults and sins.

  8. Paul says

    Tyree was (1) a crack addict, (2) an alcoholic, (3) had children out of wedlock, and (4) his parents were divorced.

    If only his parents had been heterosexual none of this would have happened! Oh… wait…

  9. Fahd says

    I do believe that if we all focus our thoughts through the power of prayer that Mr. Tyree will be blessed with a bevy of gay offspring. (It worked with Anita Bryant and Phylis Shafly)

  10. Hollywood, CA says

    It’s like watching a dog try to speak… what a stupid moron! He would never survive a debate with someone who knows the issues. I mean…

  11. Derrick from Philly says

    You people who bring up his past (drugs, children out of wedlock) are truly ignorant of the promise of Christian fundamentalism. You can be “forgiven” for anything as long as you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior. He uses his past life as an example of how one can be redeemed (in the fundies’ minds).

    Those of you who mention his race as a way to chastise him…well, you’re also insulting me (and Coretta Scott King), and this Black F.ggot will tell a White supremacist F.ggot to go stick your head up that slimy hole you came out of when you first saw life on Earth.

    Praise the Lord.

  12. Abel says

    That’s the point, you ignorant man. We ARE normal, one of God’s many variations. Just like Black people. Or White people if you want to look at it that way. Whatever.

  13. Bob says

    He grew up, played, and currently lives in New Jersey. What may or not be taught in NY schools has no effect on him. It’s just a way to get some press. His entire football carreer was making one catch — now as a shill for NOM he gets another 15 minutes of fame.

  14. Gigi says

    What does Tyree getting into trouble as a kid and screwing every chick in site have to do with my loving and committed relationship of 22+ years? Nothing, that’s what! I haven’t done half the things that he has, but even if I had IT’S NONE OF HIS BUSINESS!! STFU!!!!

  15. Matthew says

    He acts like people are physically incapable of having kids unless they are married. Geez if these people are so tied up in teaching their kids bigotry, send them to private school, you dumb*ss!

  16. bobbyjoe says

    If NOM’s Maggie “Jabba the Hutt” Gallagher and David “Crackhead Convict” Tyree are the definition of “normal,” then consider me glad to be a freak.

  17. matt says

    Don’t worry Tyree. You’ll still be able to teach your kids to hate gays. From what I hear, plenty of white folks continue to teach their children to hate black folks.

  18. Mel Smith says

    Matt, Homophobia is worse than racism.

    And as a 31-year-old gay person of color, I know from experience that homophobia is worse than racism.

  19. Frank says

    “If I have my child at a public school and I’m totally against black people or inter-racial marriage, now they have the right to teach my child that this is something normal, or true.”

    When you put it that way, it doesn’t seem like such a logical or humane argument does it, Mr. Tyree?

  20. Baby Jane says

    If the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and given your intellectuality, I doubt your children would be all that present in school.

  21. RB says

    “I don’t want my kids to think homosexuals are normal.”

    I don’t want MY kids to think that you are normal! For the love of God straights are NOT the only parents in the world!

  22. redball says

    Why is he poppping up in the news every day now?

    I hope he one day attains moral clarity and regrets that he ever perpetuated these damaging messages.

    A lot of confused, not-so-bright folks in this country….

  23. Mark says

    If you are so pro-marriage why don’t you focus on all the black men having kids out of wedlock? Given the statistics, that seems like a better investment of energy given his strong beliefs regarding marriage.

  24. Robert says

    Truly amazing. Here we have a shill for Mrs. Srivastava, a.k.a. Maggie Gallagher, herself a former unwed mother and now this idiot living with his girlfriend and expecting their second child? Could someone explain where the sanctity of hetero marriage and pro family values come into play? Am I missing something? If anything, his chosen lifestyle is anti-marriage and sending young hetero children including his own, that its ok to have sex and babies and you really don’t have to worry about getting married. That’s what NOM is supporting by using him.

  25. Roman Bolliger says

    It hurts to see how stupid a person can be. Mr. Tyree ist not aware how he is permanently disqualifying himself publicly when he opens his mouth. I cannot imagine that his kids will not one day realize their shame to be the offsprings of such an incredibly dumb man.

  26. jamal49 says

    Gee, Dave, who’s butt-boy were you when you were in the clink? You consider yourself normal? You’re an evangelical christian. If that isn’t the most abnormal, inhuman thing a person can be, then I don’t know what is. You’re scum, Dave. Accept that fact. By the way, Dave, I’ll compare my normalcy and my morality with yours any day, any time and I guarantee you, felonious butt-boy, you will always come up short.

  27. FunMe says

    He’s a drug addict. He believes marriage is such a man and a woman thingy yet he didn’t marry the father of his 2 children.

    Is he on the DOWN LOW?

  28. jomicur says

    Personally, I wouldn’t want my kids to learn that pampered, privileged, steroid-ridden, hideously overpaid imbeciles who spend their lives playing children’s games are normal. As cultural grotesques go, professional athletes have gay people beat by a mile.

  29. sparks says

    If he’s so adamant that children need a mother and a father in order to be reared well, he needs to lobby AGAINST DIVORCE. Lobbying against gays getting married has nothing to do with the cause he’s arguing.

  30. jason says

    This is why we have to challenge the idea that sexual orientation is a “choice”. I am assuming that Tyree makes this assumtion and therefore is afraid that his children will think it is an option to be gay if they are taught it is “normal”. People who identify as LGB and their allies must start the conversation around this issue. No one “chooses” who they are attracted to. I don’t MAKE my heart race when I see someone I am attracted to, it just happens. Most people can relate to that, straight, gay, bi, pansexual, etc. The challenge for people like Tyree is that for some, that attraction is for someone of the same sex. For those who are skeptical of this approach, it worked with my brother who didn’t talk to me for 11 years because of my sexual orientation. I truly believe that when the majority understands that sexual orientation is not a choice, the walls of fear will come down and the rights of LGBTQ people will be recognized.

  31. lee says

    I have read the comments section on numerous occasions and came to a conclusions: white gay people can not fathom when a person of color expresses any kind of opinion against gay issues without replying with racial comments such “nigglets.” The gay white male must allow people to have an opinion; when people of color people express an opinion,they are speaking as an individual not as representative of the race. People of color may express or have issues with homosexuality but the gay community cannot pass a litmus test on inclusiveness.

  32. Mel Smith says

    I agree with you, Lee. I always challenge the hypocrisy of my gay white brothers and sisters.

    However, David Tyree is a straight up peace of sh!t who is not worthy of defending. And I am a 31-year-old black man.

  33. msh says

    You know what’s not normal, Tyree? Raising children with a 0.0% chance of abuse! Lesbians have proven they can do it. Sometimes normal isn’t a good thing to strive for.

  34. says

    Mel none of Black Gay Men are defending the idiot. But Lee is totally correct and that is why alot of them will by pass the cmment as some feel that homophobia is within Africasn Americans racial bigotry and the feeling to be supreme lies within some of them.

    Simply sad……David Tyree’s commenst can’t hurt no one… But those white politicians in Albany are doing just that by not allowing marriage equality!

  35. says

    Excuse those dang typos REPOST:Mel none of us Black Gay Men are defending this idiot. But Lee is totally correct and that is why alot of them will by pass the comment as some feel that homophobia is within African Americans and racial bigotry and the feeling to be supreme lies within some white gay men.

    Simply sad……David Tyree’s comments can’t harm no one in the political sense… But those white politicians in Albany are doing just that by not allowing marriage equality!

  36. truthteller says

    Lee,
    You are missing the point. First of, when posters refer to him being black they are using it to illustrate a point. They are basically spewing the hatred back in his face for an innate characteristic he was born with and for which people hated him for. Just like he is doing to gay people. It is a way of trying to get him to realize the stupidity of his attacks on gay people.

    The other thing is, you are assuming the posters are white! Oh, and I hate when people use the word “people of color.” That is an oxymoron; white and pink are also colors.

  37. says

    Excuse me Truthteller if it’s what you’re saying. Then why they don’t illustrate a point that way towards Latinos and or Jewish people, or even White people. By the way who are the ones who holding NY Marriage hostage.NOT AFRICAN AMERICANS!

    Nice try those illustrations from them as such are harmful and prejudice and they meant to say it as such. There is no need to illustrate hate to an entire race when it’s just ONE person!

    Lee knows exactly what he is saying!

  38. Tyron says

    Would this “indoctrination” include the two illegitimate kids he fathered before he found Jesus and was still an alcoholic drug addict? Or maybe only those kids he fathered after the ex-con got out of prison? With his history why are people even listening to him – Oh I forgot, he’s an over the hill sports hero. David, you’re not helping rid the world of that dumb jock stereotype.

  39. Wilbur says

    Why is the fact that Mr. Tyree is a convicted felon mentioned? Usually this is done on the right as race-baiting. Are you trying to imply there is a relation to his religious views and his legal issues? Why is this relevant in any way, what-so-ever, if not to scare little, white gays in CT with continuing stereotypes about the big, scary black man they all want to get pounded by!?

  40. Tyron says

    His felony conviction is mentioned for exactly the same reason as his drug addition, alcohol abuse, and his born out of wedlock children. Because he is a major hypocrite – it has nothing whatsoever to do with his race. He life has been far from a shining or positive example of how I would want my children to grow up. Yet for some reason he is fearful that his children might be exposed to the reality that gay people really are normal. By publicly expressing his opinion on the rights of others, which he has every right to do, he is leaving himself open for examination and criticism of his own personal failures.

  41. says

    The prediction was anarchy…so said former NY Giants Superbowl star David Tyree. He was talking about the results of the hotly contested gay marriage bill which just passed in New York, granting the right to gays the nation over to…God forbid…tie the knot. Just what could he mean by anarchy? Could he mean the national rush of drag queens to Kleinfeld Bridal of television reality fame—to ‘say yes to the dress’? Did he mean that traditional brides would have to plan that much further in advance as all the good ballrooms of Manhattan will be scooped by the double income no kids, DINKs, flush with cash and desire to out do the last do? Or is it something simpler, like public displays of affection springing up everywhere—hand holding, kisses goodbye? I dare ask, has Tyree ever walked through Chelsea? If it means anarchy…bring it on. The last time I understood true anarchy was during the LA Riots where people of Tyree’s own ethnicity took to the streets to burn what they could to…I guess…make a point and scare a nation. Fear not Tyree, gays are scared of fire—too much product in our hair makes us more combustible than the average straight guy. There will be no burnings in the streets.
