"TKC, I've seen a lot of comments on your blog which suggest that wearing the jersey of my favorite football player somehow makes me less than a man and could mean that I have homosexual tendencies. At first I blew off these petty criticisms but in recent days, I just can't unsee it. I've been obsessed with wearing my Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes jersey EVERYWHERE so much that my friends are starting to comment on it. Last night I was thinking about it and I realized that while I don't identify as a member of the LGBT community -- If there was ever a chance to hook up with Patrick Mahomes, I totally would. These feelings are kind of new to me and I DO NOT have them for anyone else except our new QB. What do you think? Has this season changed my sexual orientation?"
My response . . .
DOOD. TKC is not an advice column. I wish you well with your figuring out your identity. Many believe that sexuality is a social construct and we all fall somewhere on a spectrum . . . Whatever the case, no matter what, I'm certain YOU ARE NOT ALONE in exploring devotion to the new Chiefs quarterback that has been inspired by quite a bit of exuberance over his performance this season.
Many people are gearing up for Saturday's game, and some may be shopping for Chiefs gear. As you can imagine, the hot ticket item is a Patrick Mahomes jersey.
