Roddy White doesn't want to be gay

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was asked by a fan whether he would rather lead the league in receiving stats or win a Super Bowl. Some people may say that's "easy as pie," or it might be a "piece of cake." Some may say the issue is "black and white." White thinks it's as easy as choosing whether to be gay or straight:

I've thought this for years: I'd personally choose to be gay. I'm so glad I'm gay. My life is amazing and if I could magically choose to be one or the other, I'd choose to be gay. I don't think I chose my sexual orientation, but if I could I'd choose this in a heartbeat.

Clearly White thinks that being gay is bad, otherwise he wouldn't use the analogy to demonstrate such a stark "easy-to-choose" contrast.

He went on to scream "freedom of speech" and attack a follower for daring to question him on his anti-gay tweet:
