Midweek Dicks: Sepp Blatter

15 Dec

We’ve realized that it’s time for us to start updating content more regularly, so we will attempt to entertain you with a more regular segment for those midweek dicks that strike us as deserving of a brief write-up.

Sepp Blatter apparently wasn’t satisfied with our previous entry on him and the rest of FIFA, and has attempted to top himself, this time by angering gay groups across the world with his ill-conceived comments.  Asked if he could foresee any cultural problems with the World Cup being held in Qatar, Mr. Blatter attempted to make light of the fact that homosexual behavior remains illegal in Qatar.  Smiling the same stupid smile he usually saves for when he calls Arsene Wenger names, Sepp responded “I’d say they [gay fans] should refrain from any sexual activities.”

Was it a stupid comment to make?  Yes. Should gay rights groups be pissed off?  Probably.  But let’s be real here, as much as Sepp is a colossal dick for trying to make light of the situation,  shouldn’t these gay rights groups be directing their anger at Qatar for having these laws in place at all?  Or, better yet, if they’re going to be mad at Sepp, shouldn’t it be for choosing to allow Qatar to host the World Cup in the first place?  Let’s face it, if Sepp was prepared to make jokes about the state of gay rights in Qatar, that means he was well aware of their laws before choosing it.  Basically, choosing Qatar was a gigantic “Fuck you!” to gay soccer fans.

In the article linked above, Juris Lavrikovs, communications director for the European branch of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, states that, “We are talking about a very basic human right that is being violated.”  True. Lavrikovs suggests that FIFA should have come out with a strong statement against Qatar’s law.  Or, we don’t know, maybe not chosen Qatar as the host in the first place.  Yep, tossing around jokes about one of the six dozen reasons you shouldn’t have made that decision pretty much confirms that you are a seriously huge dick.

We'd call him a cocksucker, but...
