Gilbert Arenas Defended His Sexist Rant...By Essentially Calling Everyone That Disagreed With Him 'Gay'
Can we get Gilbert Arenas an editor? Nothing I find more tedious than trying to make sense of inflammatory rants littered with hashtags and random capitalized words that lack punctuation. I'm not saying that his thoughts would be worth reading if they were formatted correctly, but it couldn't hurt, right? A little grammar goes a long way, Gilbert. Please don't shoot the messenger. No seriously, your gun collection is pretty well publicized, please don't shoot me.
Hey, sometimes you just have to tip your cap. Gilbert Arenas might be an disrespectful misogynist, but he's a disrespectful misogynist that's schooled in the art of diversion. How else is a man going to make the general public forget that he said a bunch of blatantly chauvinistic, albeit relatively true, things? That fire has gotten way too big to put out. He has no choice but to start another fire so that at least some people turn their attention from the first one. That's basically what he did by implying that everyone that doesn't think all female athletes should be wearing thongs is as gay as the day is long. Sure, he didn't actually call anyone gay, but it sounded like a hard 'G' to me. For instance, if you needed cliff notes for that longwinded, discriminatory diatribe you could probably wrap it all up in one sentence with "what are you, GAY?!". I think the biggest crime in all of this is that Gilbert Arenas is black. A prejudice rant with an "I'm not racist, but..." theme would have been the perfect way to wrap up the trilogy.
I'm not even offended by things that Gilbert Arenas had to say. Like i mentioned previously, some of it actually holds water. What I am offended by, however, is the fact that he doesn't seem to understand how someone could even perceive them as offensive. Does that make sense? If you want to be sexist then just be sexist, that's your choice. Just don't look me in the eyes and try to redefine the term to clear yourself of all charges. Gilbert, you called WNBA players "bean pies". You finished your Instagram post with "#donkeykong". If you think people are taking that the wrong way then please, tell me the right way. Yes, sex sells. However, saying that is a lot different then saying that WNBA players resemble convicts from everyone's favorite female prison show, and I don't think I have to enjoy a dick in my ass to come to that conclusion.
