Dagens hjälte

Dagens hjälte är, åtminstone i mina ögon, den f.d. Baltimore Ravens-spelaren Brendan Ayanbadejo. För Baltimore-borna är han säkert en hjälte redan sedan tidigare, eftersom han var med och vann Superbowl förra året. För min del väger dock uttalanden som dessa tyngre i vågskålen:

People think gayness has something to do with femininity, when really we just need to erase that stereotype from our minds. LGBT people come in all different types and shapes and forms, so I think that’s really what we’re fighting.

It’s a big deal because, really, America is calling for it. You can still be fired in 30 states for being a part of the LGBT community. So, for someone to step up and show that society is changing and society is calling for equality… especially in one of the four major sports, which has never been done before, it’s really a show of the changing of the tides and what’s to come in the future.

Att det krävs mod (*) för att som linebacker springa rakt in i en annan maxlöpande 150-kilosbjässe kanske inte förvånar någon, men Ayanbadejos mod går utöver detta. Well done, Sir!

(*) Okej, jag medger att vissa kanske snarare skulle klassificera det som ”brist på överlevnadsinstinkt”, men ändå…
