If you get dunked on by some guy who’s 7 feet tall does it matter if he’s gay or not? Jason Collins coming out will be one of the biggest sports stories in the coming days. It’s a polarizing issue because it merges sports with personal belief. Props to the big man for making the public statement and setting an example for others.
Good article in the Washington post summing up Collins’ announcement: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/early-lead/wp/2013/04/29/jason-collins-comes-out-nba-player-says-im-gay/
