Here’s his take on the Argentine marriage equality law, with a wonderful hat tip to Blabbeando and Out Sports.
“I am in favor of gay marriage … specially of the rights … needed by people who are equal before the law … and it doesn’t affect the rest of society … it doesn’t, if they are gays … yes? Let them be and do whatever they want, I am in favor,” Ginobli said.
Now here’s wishing that the interview would have ended there. Because Ginóbili was asked a follow up question about gay adoption (also legal in Argentina now), and on that subject Ginóbili was a little mixed. Not that he’s against gay adoption; he just doesn’t have all the information he needs to give a solid opinion.
“Adoption is much more delicate,I don’t feel I have the qualifications, I don’t know which studies have been done, if there is any background. I know that, I believe – I don’t know, as an outside observer, without knowledge of what scientific data there is out there – that for a baby it should be better to be with two dads than to be in an orphanage,” Ginóbili added.
