Giullen has words for Jay Mariotti Giullen called Mariotti a f***in f*g. Fast Forward a bit, naturally Guillen has to apologize before he feels the wrath of MLB, and this is where it get's interesting.

"Guillen defended his use of the term "fag" by saying this about homosexuals and the use of the word in question: "I don't have anything against those people. In my country, you call someone something like that and it is not the same as it is in this country.'' Guillen said that in his native Venezuela, that word is not a reference to a person's sexuality, but to his courage."

It continues on with BY FAR the best defense to being homophobic I ever heard in my life:

"Guillen also told Couch (the interviewer) that he has gay friends, attends WNBA games, went to a Madonna concert and plans to go to the Gay Games in Chicago."

Thanks to my boy Brian's research, you can check out the website for the "Chicago Gay Games" for yourself(here)(its worth it for the logo alone)
