Sean Zevran Responds to NFL's Stand For Your Flag Decision

Gay porn star Sean Zevran has spoken out regarding the NFL's decision to enforce a rule that all players must stand when the National Anthem is being played at each and every single game. It has been taken as extremely controversial and has received a ton of backlash because of it.  

The multiple-award winner (real name Josiah Jennings) took to his social media on Thursday to explain his frustrations regarding their decision in an extremely blunt post.

"F**k your flag. F**k your anthem. F**k your patriotism. The NFL situation represents exactly what I've always called patriotism a disease. When people start holding symbols in higher regard than human life and decency, that's a dark f***ing road. It's a disgusting road. There's nothing noble or honorable about it." 

His followers on social media responded very positively to what he said, with one in particular saying "I couldn't have said it better."

Sean has used his platform to discuss issues similar to this in the past. He spoke out regarding the controversy around the 2018 GayVN Awards, where several fellow stars including Hugh Hunter called them out for having a category called Best Ethnic Scene, which they eventually merged into the overall Best Duo Category.

New Policy Enforces ‘Proper Respect’

#OhBoy! Okay, so I’m not one who pays any sort of attention to sports…unless it somehow ties into hot topics. The National Football League (NFL) has made headlines for a variety of reasons over the last few years, including Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, who started a trend among Athletes by taking a knee during the National Anthem. Kaepernick taking a knee started a media frenzy regarding respect for the flag and the unfair treatment of colored Americans. The country was seemingly divided over which was the correct decision: Standing for the flag to honor veterans or kneeling to honor one’s freedom from said veterans. It turns out, the NFL players will no longer have to make a choice: They are being forced to stand.


According to Sports Illustrated, NFL owners have voted on a resolution for said National Anthem controversy. All players on the field must stand, but there is an option for players to wait in the locker room until the Anthem in over. If players standing on the field are not ‘respectful’, they will be fined. The new policy reads:

"All team and league personnel on the field shall stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem. The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be on the field for the Anthem. Personnel who choose not to stand for the Anthem may stay in the locker room or in a similar location off the field until after the Anthem has been performed."


I think a smart decision would’ve been to have added that no matter what – standing, kneeling, sitting, smoking a cigarette, standing like a flamingo, jeez – anything – was still acceptable and deemed respecting the flag during the National Anthem. But, what do I know? I’m anticipating to see how this will play out for the future of NFL games in the upcoming season. Only time will tell.


Are you pleased with the end result of the NFL National Anthem protests?

Footballer Derrius Guice Asked About Sexuality And If His Mom's A Prostitute

 

If any of you were thinking of ever dabbling in professional American football, then let this be a lesson that things are not all Lady Gaga jumping from the sky and Justin Timberlake lip syncing in a Burning Man clown costume. If that was the extent of football, I'd have signed up a long time ago. As it stands, in addition to the rigorous physical challenges players face on the field, they are perpetually being tested (cute word for hazed) by fellow players and coaches, and LSU alum and NFL hopeful Derrius Guice is spilling the tea on what footballers endure behind-the-scenes.

Guice completed the NFL combine earlier this week, which is a sort of Hunger Games scenario in which NFL prospects show off their skills in hopes of being drafted. The NFL is never too happy when word gets out that football is like a never ending fraternity rush week - but with more concussions, homophobia, and illegal dog fighting - so people are pretty shocked that Guice was brave enough to come forward with the inappropriate exchange he shared with an Atlanta Falcons assistant coach during the combine:

It was pretty crazy. Some people are really trying to get in your head and test your reaction. ... I go in one room, and a team will ask me do I like men, just to see my reaction. I go in another room, they’ll try to bring up one of my family members or something and tell me, 'Hey, I heard your mom sells herself. How do you feel about that?'

First off, sir, you should be so lucky as to be attracted to men. It's the best. Secondly, this just proves that Hollywood isn't the only industry in need of a serious human resources overhaul. And it proves that homophobia is still rampant is team sports to the extent that a mere question of one's sexuality is considered an insult.  NFL said that the questions were "disappointing and clearly inappropriate."

Guice has not stated if he is playing for Team Gay or not, but his response seems to indicate that he's straight. Too bad for him.
