Having a gay son? “I would think I failed as a man to create such weakness,” says Sean Strickland

Sean Strickland isn’t afraid to open up, be it the cage or his mind. The UFC middleweight fighter, currently ranked 7th in the division, is often on the headlines for speaking some eyebrow-raising stuff, such as revealing his past as a neo-Nazi, or his opinions regarding racism or sexuality. However, his latest comments regarding having a gay son have stirred up more controversy, as Strickland believes he’d fail as a man if his son turned out to be homosexual.

Sean Strickland makes his stance clear on having a gay son

It all started when Strickland posted a fiery tweet, lashing out at the stardom surrounding singers and actors. On which a user had commented, asking the Anaheim-born fighter his preference between having a gay son or a daughter who is a ‘thot’, a derogatory term used to describe a woman with many casual sexual encounters or relationships.

Strickland said he would rather have a ‘whore for a daughter’, drawing parallels with himself, rather than having a son who is into men, which he believes would fail him as a man.

“If I had a gay son I would think I failed as a man to create such weakness…..” Strickland’s tweet read, “If I had a whore for a daughter I’d think she just wanted to be like her dad lol!!”

The tweet generated massive reprimand on social media and Strickland came up with a follow-up tweet, clarifying his stance on gay men and saying that while he supports them, he believes its ‘not fair’ for straight men to work hard to get sex.

“LISTEN gay men are great, i support them and their choices,” Strickland went on, “freedom! Gay guys have it made. Most gay guys I know are always happy. They all just get to hang with buddies all day and have sex.. us straight men, we’re fucked… we gotta do some serious work to get laid. Not fair”

Strickland is currently on a five fight win streak and is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Uriah Hall at UFC Vegas 33 on 10th July and was set to fight Luke Rockhold at UFC 268. However, Rockhold had pulled out of the bout due to injury, leaving Strickland looking forward to face Jack Hermansson at UFC Fight Night 201 on 5th February.
