Good on Jason Collins for telling the truth.
Are you repulsed by homosexuals? No one cares. They're repulsed by you and so are plenty of us straight guys. Bigots are ugly people. So, relax. You're very repulsive. The gays are not coming for you.
To people who say gays should not talk about this, you understand nothing. Straights get to live their lives openly. You say you don't talk about your sexuality? Every time you walk down the street holding the hand of your wife or girlfriend, you are advertising your sexuality. Gays want the same thing you have. They want to live in a world where they never have to make declarations like this. When people like you see the light or just die off [I don't care which one it is], we'll have that world. The sooner the better.
Sorry, bigots. This is our country now. You're losing because losing is what losers do. Get on the bandwagon now or get crushed beneath the wheels of history. Fine with me if you don't want to get on the bandwagon. I kind of enjoy watching the bigots rail and howl against the march of progress. Their pain and bewilderment is fun to watch.
This is great that he has made the decision to come out, hopefully more will soon follow suit. It's truly a big step to have another American athlete come out; however; he isn't active anymore and there are legit basketball reasons why he never will be again (he's isa terrible basketball player).
