FULL TITLE: Basketball star Brittney Griner comes out as a lesbian and reveals how she was 'picked on for being different'
Brittney Griner, the number one pick in the WNBA draft on Monday, yesterday acknowledged that she is gay and talked about being bullied while growing up.
The 6-foot-8 basketball star, selected by the Phoenix Mercury after an astounding four-career at Baylor, openly discussed her sexuality with Sports Illustrated. When asked about why more female athletes were out as opposed to men, Griner replied: 'I really couldn't give an answer on why that's so different. Being one that's out, it's just being who you are.'

Lots of pics at link. In case you wanted to see 'em.
Gee, a WNBA personality who’s a lesbian. Who could have guessed?
As far as I know, non-lesbians are not permitted to play women's basketball.
She’s perfect for the Mavericks — grab her Mark.
ISGAS - I Scarcely Give A Smelly Shi...er...Shobama.
What is he complaining about? For years, he’s been able to dress in the girls’ locker room.
If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck.....
I am really disappointed. She is so attractive /s
You could knock me over with a feather. Who could have guessed.
Beat me to it...
Uh, what's a four-career?
Who cares? Lots of people were picked on regardless of their sex or race. Shut up already
wait, the big dude was picking on that hottie who is a lez-bean?
It sure is going to be nice when America finally grows up and moves past this homosexuality fad and moves on to “the next big thing.”
I thought she said Lebanese.
I thought Perdogg followed the WNBA?
OK, I just spit out my lunch, which was delicious I might add.
Whatever it takes to oppose, criminalize, marginalize, and punish Christian beliefs, that’s what the “next big thing” will be.
She wouldn’t be the first physically freakish girl who got tired of no boys being attracted to her and gave up and decided to go lez.
"Oh... you mean like democrats?"
What are women’s sports coming to? Next thing you know there will be lesbians in the LPGA!
A lesbian basketball player, now there’s something you don’t see every day. /s
Does she count as one of the pro athletes who are expected to out themselves in the near future, or are those just NFL players?
"I'm a lesbian, but I'm not gay over it. See I wear my wedding band on my right hand."
And some people still think the L in LPGA stands for ladies.
I read recently that Sheryl Swoopes ditched her lesbian lover and is now engaged to a man.
Why do these people think we care?
Sometimes coming out is a short trip.
Next we’ll hear women golf pros swing both ways.
But at the end of the day,
Whatever the size of the balls you shun,
You take your licking
And then you’ll be a man, my son! (Daughter?)
Yeah, because there are so many men looking for women to date, who are 6 foot 8, right?
It’s already happening and the latest craze.
Wait till NASCAR burns out on black pandering...
“Today on pit row we say Junior Bifflesweed do a fabulous makeover on his all aluminum small block Chevy!
“Well Jim, I thought it was simply too vanilla you know? So I added a couple points of compression and now I just feel those good vibrations all over! Oh and of course I have to tell you about my work with oppressed gay kids. You know Jim, I was bullied a lot when I came to NASCAR but since President Obama outlawed hetrosexual bigots, I feel FABULOUS!!!:
6’ 8” of shemale pulchritude - and they treated her “different”
all the way to the bank
There’s a lesbian in the WNBA???? I’m shocked, I tell you. shocked!
At first read of the title, I thought she was being ridiculed for being a lezbo in the WNBA which I always thought was an entrance requirement.
Oh, she was picked on as a kid growing up. Get in line chikie (OK, maybe that doesn’t apply to this particular person) but name one person in the history of history, who wasn’t picked on as a kid. Some even had the extra benefit from having an alcoholic father who liked to beat their kids up (I’m not talking about me, I’ve never seen my father hammered at anytime in his life), so guess what, we’re all in the same boat so get over it, join the WNBA or write a book which Oprah will fall all over her big self to promote it.
She could be another Maya Angelou, in other words, she sucks but since she’s black, lets give her a book (or what she might call poetry, we normal readers just think it’s a jumble of words strung together and you either get it or you don’t, I don’t). I know why the caged Gerbil screams.
But above all please shut up. I’ve had things happen to me which would make her ‘story’ too treacly for Lassie.
[sarcasm] NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! [/sarcasm]
Griner is Exhibit A that homosexuality born trait, not a choice (at least for some). She is clearly a mix of male and female genes. She is 6’ 8”, built like a man with manly features. She has a male voice and somewhat of a male hairline. She is slim like a woman and has women’s parts. There was zero doubt in my mind she was lesbian from the first time I saw her.
I guess you also argue that pedophilia (is a) born trait too.
Polygamists? Born that way, huh?
that would make her only half lesbian then....(is that an adams apple, or are you just glad to see me?)
LOL! I guess I'm not the only Maya Angelou fan out there. I've read some pretty good poetry in the past ... I'm not sure what I'd call Miss (or Mrs) Angelou's scribblings. To each his own, I guess...
“As far as I know, non-lesbians are not permitted to play women’s basketball.”
You never had any daughters who wanted to play basketball??
Basketball is a very honorable sport for high school girls to play and to then to go on to college and play.
I read “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” or as much of it as I could stomach, when it first came out.
Gave a new meaning to the word “swill”.
So you’re saying that jokes at the expense of the homosexual lobby are verboten?
Lesbian women’s basketball star. Why is this considered news? Now if she came out as straight, it would be worthy of above the fold headlines? A dyke? SOP.
