Magic Johnson gushes over gay son EJ Johnson saying 'we love him'

Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, NBA legend Magic Johnson unequivocally supported his gay son EJ Johnson's sexuality. He said: 'I think it's all about you not trying to decide what your daughter or son should be or what you want them to become. It's all about loving them no matter who they are, what they decide to do.

'And when my son came out, I was so happy for him and happy for us as parents. We love him. EJ is amazing. So you got to support your child, because there are so many people who try to discriminate against them, so they need you to support them. Because if you don't support them, who is going to support them? And love them? It's really important.'
Magic Johnson is no stranger to coming out with a big announcement. He bravely announced his HIV diagnosis when he retired from the sport in 1991.

Magic's wife Earlitha 'Cookie' Kelly - who's HIV negative - was two months pregnant with EJ at the time of the shocking announcement.
24yr old EJ Johnson has spoken of how privileged he feels to have such a supportive family and said he never felt pressure to follow in his heterosexual father's athletic footsteps. He said:
'It just motivates me to create my own legacy. My path is completely different than my dad's. I think that I'm really blessed because I don’t feel the pressure to necessarily meet him on that level because I'm not taking that sports and business path. I'm just doing me.'

They'll crash world and everything in it,
They'll take each and every minute of your time,
They wont give you a chance, to live life like you should,
They'll never understand that you would change if you could.

You could give your all,
You could give your soul, and that will be not enough.
They'll act selfishly, so hard to please,
You can't fulfil their needs,
Because their needs will never seize.

They'll never ask you how you've been,
Too busy to spare you some attention,
But you're better off alone,
Atleast then you know what you want,
Instead of existing for those who want too much.

They seem to think you never cry,
They think you can push the clouds out of the sky,
But you're not alive to live their lives,
You're here to be the best you can be,
So try to understand, even if they can't.

Maybe if they put themselves in your shoes for a day,
They would probably see things the same way.

I wish you could be everything that they want,
But it gets hard when they want all or nothing,
And they don't see that you can't do the impossible, all they want from you is the impossible.

They won't let you explain,
They never give or take,
They always want things their way.
They can't even try to meet you half way.
Tell them what they want from you is impossible.
Tell them that loving them is impossible.
Let them go.

Even when they make you feel like you don't impress,
And you don't understand why they take you for granted,
Don't stick around,
To let them tear you down,
Let someone else play their fool.
Don't take their persecution and abuse.

What Papa? You're happy that your imaginary Papa is a violent religious fanatic, and you think you're making sense.

Uju Phil, you'll forever be a basic bitch.

And to the one who's sick and angry about gay people. Your problems are far worse than you minding gay people's business.
