New Orleans Saints' Jonathan Vilma is Worried Gay Players Will Look At Him in the Shower
New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma appears to have some unresolved fears about gays in the locker room. When asked by NFL Network’s Andrea Kramer about potentially playing with a gay teammate, Vilma responded:
"I think he would not be accepted as much as we think he would be accepted. I don't want people to just naturally assume, oh, we're all homophobic. That's really not the case. Imagine if he's the guy next to me, and you know, I get dressed, naked, taking a shower, the whole nine, and it just so happens he looks at me, how am I supposed to respond?"
Vilma is apparently unaware that he’s been showering with gay men his whole life without much hullabaloo...
