Not that he really needs it from me, but I am compelled to give Washington Wizards Jason Collins serious fucking props today. It takes guts to come out, for just about anyone, I’m certain. But anyone who’s ever been in a locker room knows, it takes some 765lb brass cojones to come out as a professional athlete.
Good on you, Jason. Here’s hoping your example of strength gives people everywhere, regardless of sexual orientation or anything else, inspiration and the courage to be who they are, and never allow anyone to degrade or shame them for it.
