Megan Moulton-Levy (WTA #96 in doubles) officially comes out

She mentioned getting engaged to her girlfriend in her blog: http://meganmoultonlevy.blogspot.com

Good for her on having the courage to be open about it. Not too many pro athletes do

Good for her, I've always liked Megan she seems like a very nice girl

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

*Awaits for the numerous 'who else in Lesbian on the WTA tour' and 'who should come out' threads that will inevitably come due to this*

Re: Megan Moulton-Levy (WTA #96 in doubles) officially comes out

I don't really want everyone to brazenly flaunt their private life unnecessarily, but it's a shame that it seems to be only the women brave enough to come out.

I think it's very commendable on Megan's part. Tennis and sport in general needs more of the same. It still amazes me how tentative these revelations are, and how much world sport represses homosexuality, especially when it comes to gay men.

Agreed. I also think it's because on the women's tour, no one really cares. Rennae Stubbs has said that she didn't receive any negative comments from players when she came out. Meanwhile, there was a story on a challenger scrub (Francesco Rodriguez) on the men's side who came out years after he retired, where he said there are players on the men's tour who genuinely believe you can get AIDS from sitting on a toilet seat.
