May 2, 2013 Full story: New Hampshire Public Radio -

"Occasional lip service notwithstanding, pro sports in general—and the NBA in particular—are a bastion of testosterone-driven heterosexism,"

Has it occurred to anyone that "testosterone-driven " heterosexuals are the ones who generally play sports?

I am predicting right now that if and when the sports community gets to the point where all gay men are out of the closet, you will still see a much lower percentage of gays than in the general population.

Blame NOM, and other such groups. They have clearly stated, and admitted, to trying to use racial tensions as a way to disrupt the issue. Luckily intelligent people don't listen to them. ;)

So ... only gay men play in sports, is what you're saying. Makes sense, you'd have to be a gay man to love those balls so much.

"Homophobia" runs rampant. This article is extremely biased and took underhanded swipes at the black community. And I knew the white gays would use this because that is how sneaky and unhanded they are. I resent gays using blacks for political gain, especially using this black gay FORMERLY DOWN LOW BISEXUAL CLOSETED NOW OPENLY GAY BLACK MAN as a way of manipulating the black community to accept homosexuality.

Collin's was engaged to a woman, who didn't know he was bisexual turned gay until his announcement. He is no hero for hiding in the closet for long, only to come out when it's politically safe.

I look forward to white hockey players, baseball players, football players, and soccer players to come out soon. It's apparent the gay community is trying to solidify their weak argument of comparing black civil rights to gay civil rights. Such comparisons are disgusting and the black community is correct in rejecting such comparisons.
