Douchebag of the Day: Tank Carder

A quote from football player Tank Carder: “I don’t agree with being gay or lesbian at all, but saying faggot doesn’t make me a homophobe, it’s just a word.”   As an alternative to our Hunk of the Day feature, we also have to look at the ugly side of humanity too, and in this case it’s the homophobic words by Tank Carder. And sorry, but calling someone a faggot in a derogatory fashion (and there’s really no other fashion in which to do it) does make you a homophobe. For more hateful nonsense from Mr. Carder, see more of the story at Outsports.

One more thing – If you’re going to start hating on things over which people have no control, let’s talk about the name ‘Tank’. One can always change one’s name, unlike one’s sexuality.

{UPDATE: His latest Tweet, as of last night, was the following: “I was not bashing the gay community in any way…if you knew me you would know I wouldn’t do that. Again I’m sorry if you were offended.” Yeah, ‘I’m sorry if you were offended’ is not an apology. It’s kind of like saying, “I’m sorry you’re a homophobic prick.”}
