Chris Kluwe Takes On NFL Owner Over Houston Ordinance

Houston's Equal Rights Ordinance, or HERO, has a new ally: former NFL player and LGBTQ activist Chris Kluwe.
Kluwe teed off against Houston Texans owner Bob McNair in a terse editorial after McNair donated $10,000 to a group opposing HERO. That ordinance seeks to protect Houstonians from discrimination on the basis of 15 characteristics, including gender identity.
In the editorial, Kluwe calls McNair "tone-deaf" — among other things — for being an NFL owner and donating to a group that doesn't exactly uphold the NFL's values of "tolerance and inclusiveness."
