pro athletes coming out

The reverberations of NBA player Jason Collins publicly coming out are still being felt more than a week later.

The main issue is that he is an active player in one of the 4 major professional  TEAM  sports in America.

Apparently an individual athlete coming out is less of an issue, because there is no discomfort in the showers and dressing room.

It makes me wonder what the players who have objected to having a gay athlete in their dressing room are thinking.

An athlete is gay whether he comes out or not, and he is already in your dressing room.

What is the difference when he comes out, do you think he will start behaving differently?

Will he look at you in a different way in the shower after a game?

Will his tap on your butt after a big play mean something different now?

Just because heterosexual guys might be sexual predators, it does not mean that gay guys are.
