i always didn’t understand the point of coming out so publicly.
it’s like you get this massive celebration,
confetti goes up in the air,
but as soon as the novelty wears off,
it ends up with no one giving a fuck about you.
you learn quickly that your sexuality doesn’t mean you’re a unicorn.
it’s like a celeb who has nothing else to offer.
you’re back to being a regular person who happens to be gay.
well ex baller wolf,
is “that person”.
hes’sblaming the gay community for it as well.
a foxholer sent me the article via “the blaze“…
In an emotional interview published on Yahoo News, former NFL player Michael Sam recounts how his life fell apart after he was celebrated as the first openly gay player in the NFL.
Sam also criticizes the LGBT community, among others, for not helping him after his life had spiraled out of control.
Sam says he began to abuse drugs and alcohol and lost control of his life.
When he found himself in a one-bedroom apartment in Dallas by the Fall of 2016, he reached out to the LGBT community who had championed him before, as well as other sports organizations and businesses.
Despite the previous support they had shown him, “no one would give me a job,” he said.
“Where was the support that I got for coming out?” Sam added. “I felt like I was used by everyone.”
He was partying, working out and hooked on cocaine. “I felt lost and worthless,” he said.
Sam has since stopped abusing hard drugs after an ayahuasca retreat in Peru. He is working to heal his broken relationship with his family.
folks really should stop doing things because others think it’s a good idea.
michael’s main issue was thinking the white gays were gonna stand with him.
i’m sure they enjoyed that bbc,
but when he wasn’t able to produce results aka money,
they dropped him like a bad habit and moved on.
what happened to his twink fox anyway?
from what i remember,
wasn’t he so far removed from the black gay community too?
like many others who see stardom on the horizon,
either straight or gay,
they get into this “white was right” and it almost never ends well.
michael became such a distraction that it fucked him up honestly.
he should have played a season or two,
build his reputation up,
and then come out once he secured all the bags.
he realized college ball is not like nfl ball.
his whole roll out was messy and it ended with him being a bust.
a shame “they” gassed his head up and bust his bubble all at the same time.
i hope he’s able to bounce back into something he’ll do better in.
