Big congratulations go out to the brave Jason Collins for helping make strides towards equality.
This is a pretty huge deal. There have been tons of gay female pro athletes who have conquered the sports world before Collins — but this is a landmark occurrence for male team sports.
Naturally, the repugnant bigotry materialized instantly with ignorance commentary cropping up from the usual gang of jackasses and religious nutbars embarrassingly clinging to their corrupt ideologies. Thankfully, this woeful discrimination is lessening each day.
Steps like this help make it less “news-worthy” — Lets hope this is the first step towards making this not even a thing anymore.
