Supporter of Gay Rights, Political Activist, Lover of L.A’s Finest, and Fashionista Extraordinaire… these are all the ways to paint Sean Avery. It seems like whatever hot-button issue rises, Avery is there to either denounce or support this offseason. Is it done out of pure boredom waiting for the season to start? Maybe, however, Avery deserves to be commended for his efforts. At least he has the courage to stand up for what he believes in. But at what point does it become gratuitous?
