It bothers me more with Rodgers because this seems a clear attempt to dispel any rumor that he is gay.There is context to this: In December 2013, numerous gossip websites picked up some tweets by Kevin Lanflisi, Rodgers' then personal assistant whom Rodgers referred to as "more of a, like, a best friend/roommate deal." ( mark of this video). There is a video of the two of them posing for photos together at a sports award show in Wisconsin, and some leaped to the conclusion that they were a couple.
No one was talking about Rodgers being gay any more. Yet it is clear to me that Rodgers feels a need to remind us all over and over about his heterosexual bona fides, as the Sports Illustrated story shows.
In denying the rumors, I wish Rodgers had said something to the effect of "I'm not gay, not that there's anything wrong with that," but he didn't.
Instead, he called such a suggestion "crazy" and "silly." There is nothing "silly" about someone being gay, and it's not a crazy thought that a pro athlete could prefer men.
Did you know that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is dating actress Olivia Munn?
And that they try to have as much sex as possible but not on game days?
