Re: Why NBA center Jason Collins is coming out now

The sad part is that it has taken this long for someone to do it. After all, for years gayness has been no big deal in womens sports. Society's double standards in this regard is inexcusable.

The double standard exists because society is dominated by (male) insecure assholes.

Re: Why NBA center Jason Collins is coming out now

I'm sorry but how does Jason Collins came out as gay is a newsworthy? I'm waiting for straight people to come out and parade their heterosexuality for the world to see. Yep. I'm waiting.

I know it might take a while but if you really ponder it for a while you just might get it.

I'm do proud of Jason for getting the ball rolling, so to speak . Hopefully in the near future we won't need to " come out " from anywhere

Re: Why NBA center Jason Collins is coming out now

Good for him, and a very well-articulated piece.

And Mattographer, we speak not because it's newsworthy, but because some people want to silence us. If you declared you were straight it certainly is not newsworthy, but no one is gonna silence you. So if you think the coming out is not newsworthy, then continue to not let it not bother you and be on your merry way. But if you're bothered by reasons of your prejudiced misconceptions, it just shows the need for us to speak up even more. We WILL not be silenced.
