    So, first things first. FUCK YOU, Pacquiao.

    Manny "pacman" Pacquiao, the world champion in boxing just compared same sex relationship to animals

    Ok, so here's what he said in an interview about his stand on same sex relationship in general (not just in the Philippines) (this one is translated, he said this foul things in Filipino):


    You can read the article here

    Gonna write my reaction to this later.

    Also, if you want to watch how he said it without remorse, just click here.

    Oh and btw, he uploaded a video of him apologizing about what he said. Trust me, I was shaking my head while watching it. I cant feel his sincerity.

    Well, not only are you a bigoted asshat, but you're factually incorrect. Google bonobos sometime, Pacquiao.

    I was just about to post this.

    Yup, he's an asshole. He's said stuff like this before, and he has an egregious voting record so it really shouldn't come as a surprise.

    Ironically, despite all the hate (a lot of which is justified) that Floyd Mayweather gets, especially when compared to Pacquaio, Floyd's actually said that he supports same sex marriage.

    But yeah, this sucks. Even more so when you consider that he might run for president of the Philippines.

    OK, somebody punch this guy in the face!

    And, you'd even be able to do so legally, though you might emerge a bit worse for wear and tear.

    But isn't same-sex behavior quite common in the animal kingdom? There is even a species of sheep where exclusive homosexual orientation occurs and humans are technically animals so...

    You see, they think they're insulting us, but in reality, they're just stating the obvious. Humans are animals too.

    Is this good chat back? or not? I always come up with the good ones after the moment has passed, so I can't tell.

    There's a song out there that starts with asking "which celebrity would you most like to punch in the face?"

    I'm not sure who said it or who asked, but the answer was "manny paquiao"

    I for one am stunned that a sport that has produced the likes of Mike Tyson, Vitaly Klitschko, Floyd Mayweather and Tyson Fury would produce someone with the kind of foul views that Manny holds.

    Stunned I tells ya.

    It's a hateful and incorrect thing to say, but somehow I just can't get too worked up about the opinions of someone who gets punched in the head for a living.

    I knew he was against marriage equality. However, these comments from him have crossed the line. They are unacceptable. My respect for him has vanished.

    People who are defending his comments are dismissive, saying that he has a right to an opinion. We, however, also have the right to call his beliefs bullshit.

    It's not "just an opinion". People in our community face discrimination, laws that take away our rights, and even death in some countries, because of these "opinions". To imply that his beliefs have no further impact after they are expressed is delusional.

    First, there are many animals that engage in same sex copulation.

    Second, we are animals too (see Humans on Wikipedia and their taxonomical classification).

    This is simply ridiculous.

    I'm guessing he doesn't know that animals in fact do engage in same-sex activity. And since animals do engage in same-sex activity, then gays are equal to animals. There's literally no way to say gays are better than animals when you use his logic. So... it's just an unfair comparison.

    Also giraffes, spiders, the list goes on...
    Before someone tries to sound smart, shouldn't they do their research?

    I think the amazing thing to emerge from all this is that Manny seemingly doesn't know how to use Google.

    It's amazing the way supporters of someone will attempt to justify ignorance or hatred. I had a similar statement told to me once about someone else.

    From the link in the OP:

    “Manny doesn’t say that being a gay or lesbian per se is a sin. It’s the act that he is pointing out,” said kitkpau (@paulocadungon). :rolle:
