Yesterday in Alabama, a few fans of the Spanish Fort Toros high school football team announced to the world, via this shot on ESPN, that purple is “gay.” The Toros played and beat the Daphne Trojans but in the stands these fans (image, top,) took time out from their Labor Day weekend barbecues to gather their friends and go to the store and buy paint, brushes, and paper, to make a nasty, homophobic sign to prove how “straight” they are.
“PURPLE? Man, that’s Gay,” the sign reads.
Welcome to Alabama.
