Kobe Bryant Apologizes, Sort Of, After Mouthing Homosexual Slur – From Our Editors – SBNation.com. another reason not to like Kobe….

“What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”

I wonder when people will realize that your intent to harmfully affect someone does not matter compared to the actual affect your actions have. It doesn’t fucking matter if you didn’t “mean” to offend someone or if your words don’t rightfully reflect your feelings about a community, it’s degrading and harmful regardless.  But of course, with dominant groups, they don’t feel the need to change their behavior for anyone else.  Nevermind that you’re a role model and that people look up to you, nevermind all the negative impacts your actions could have… it only matters if you meant to be a complete douchebag.

Sorry, Kobe, but you seem to be an epic failure at not being an ass hole.
