There's been tons of talk about how the WNBA purposely downplayed and discouraged their lesbian fans for a very long time.
"The talk about the WNBA being full of lesbians is not true," Swoopes says. "There are as many straight women in the league as there are gay. What really irritates me is when people talk about football, baseball and the NBA, you don't hear all of this talk about the gay guys playing. But when you talk about the WNBA, then it becomes an issue. Sexuality and gender don't change anyone's performance on the court."
Sorry kids, but having someone out on your team in not something anybody wants. It can be tolerated, but is not desired. There's a difference between basketball/football/baseball and a sport like golf or tennis. They are team sports. Things that divide teams, destroy teams. This is most certainly one of those things that destroys teams.
Flame me now, and call be all sorts of silly names, but that's the way it is, and most likely to stay for the next long while.
