That's an actual quote from Sixer Shavlik Randolph in regards to former Penn State standout John Amaechi's coming out as gay man who once played in the NBA.  Wow.  Leave it to a floorslapper.

From ESPN's Page 2:

Truth: The most ignorant reaction to Amaechi's coming out was from Philadelphia 76ers forward Shavlik Randolph, who said: "As long as you don't bring your gayness on me I'm fine. As far as business-wise, I'm sure I could play with him. But I think it would create a little awkwardness in the locker room." Bring your gayness on me? As if sexuality can be passed on like a cold. Also, way to continue the stereotype that gay men are lusty predators.
