Skip to comments.Jason Collins vs. the voice of locker-room ignorance
Posted on 04/30/2013 6:52:25 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Thank goodness for new Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace's quick fingers.
"All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH,'' Wallace tweeted Monday.
Thank goodness he explained in 140 quickly-erased characters why it took until 2013 for the first active gay athlete to announce himself in a team sport.

As Howie Carr said yesterday, ‘This used to be the ‘Love that Dares not Mention its Name’. Now it won’t SHUT UP!”
After reading all the glowing kudos to this no-body homosexual yesterday, one can surmise that sports journalists are unduly fascinated by homosexuals in sports.
“...why it took until 2013 for the first active gay athlete to announce himself in a team sport.”
Here’s one: explain to me why I should give a rat’s *ss.
I think this guy is a fraud. he was washed up in Basketball and now has found a new way to make big bucks. I heard he has 2 illigitimate children. That’s not many for an NBA player, but it kind of contradicts his Gay claim.
Many are gay themselves.
Praise him... honor him... worship him... but he is still a ****-sucker and a sodomite. Those that support him are sharing in his sin. If GOD doesn’t mean anything to you... then be not offended. Your knowledge will come and perhaps too late for it to save your soul... but since leftists are GOD-less creatures of evil... as hildebeast says... “What does it matter”.
I am a HUGE sports fan, but this whole Collins affair has really turned me off. I’m beginning to re-think my sports “addiction”.
I made the comment on a site that I go on that I don’t care about Collins’ orientation, and was called a name by one poster, and saw that it was generally accepted and praised by just about every other poster on that site.
I love sports. Love to play them, love to watch them...but we are lifting these guys up to some level of worship. I don’t do that personally, but we as a society do that. It’s really turned me off.
You know, most of us, in fact, almost all of us, wish to keep our bedroom activities to ourselves. This bunch of homo saps relish in the exhibition of their deviant mores perhaps to gain some sort of approval. None coming from here. Keep your sexual identity to yourself and you will get no grief from me. Do otherwise, and expect public distain.
The only question a real sport’s fan cares about is can a player help his team get to the playoffs and/or go deep into the playoffs. Other than that I don’t give a rip what they do on their own time....
He was washed up...now he can claim he is being ostracized.
Oh for the love of God, why is it ignorant to state the obvious - “All these beautiful women in the world and guys wanna mess with other guys SMH.” There is nothing wrong with a MAN saying something like that — It’s natural, it’s obvious, it’s normal.
What collins does with other men...not so much, simply vile, filthy, disgusting, and deviant.
Breath mint Jason?
“now he can claim he was ostracized”...Yes, and that will mean more publicity, paid speaking engagements and interviews. He will be the new “Sandra Fluke”. I will bet he already has an Agent.
If Satan could knock down 3's from the corner I'd root for him if he wearing Celtic green....
Nothing wrong wit what Wallace said. Too bad he C and erased it.
Back in the day, one didn’t air one’s dirty laundry.
With regard to the assertion that Jason is just like Jackie Robinson.
This would be true if Jackie Robinson had waited until he was a 36 year old free agent to tell the world he was Black.
I really, honestly, truly, and sincerely do not care one bit who he is sleeping with, who he is marrying, and who he is cheating on or with. I just want to see the athletes performing well as a team, and beating whatever East or West Coast club is in town this week. That’s all. Can we please just get back to the sports, and let the Gay Lobby crow about their fabulous sex lives in their own circles once again?
oops, that should’ve been “too bad he went all PC and erased it.”
I wait to hear of queer horses and/or jockeys next.
In high school I was uncomfortable being naked in the community shower. Being naked wasn't something we did in my house. You were only naked when you were by yourself.
I walk into the shower room (not individual showers) and here is a classmate (who I was sure was gay, sorry, I mean queer) talking to another classmate (who I suspected could be queer).
Does anyone else remember when rain forests were jungles, homeless were bums, and gays were queers? I digress.
Anyway, already uncomfortable, I walk into the shower room and this classmate, who I was sure was queer has a huge erection (”boner”, for those of you in Rio Linda). The other classmate talking to him as if nothing was happening.
Talk about an elephant in the room! Or the emperor having no clothes!
This was the last time I took a shower at school. Maybe HE should have been the one to abstain from the boys shower room.
Being naked in a shower room (locker room) with team mates who might be gay and doing the same with an admitted gay is not the same.
Don't ask, don't tell, was a great concept. Keep your disgusting sexual preferences to yourself!
And YES, it is a choice. You were not born that way.
Studies by Johns Hopkins University, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a pro-homosexual scientist, Evelyn Hooker, and Masters and Johnson all deny that theres any genetic link. They agree that the connection between genetics and homosexuality is a myth.
“I wait to hear of queer horses and/or jockeys next.”
How about jockeys marrying their horses...eh?
[[let the Gay Lobby crow about their fabulous sex lives in their own circles once again?]]
That’ the problem- trhey arern’t cotnent crowing abotu htremselves amoungst themselves- they HAVE to force their lifetsyle into every household now, and won’t rest until they’ve transformed Christians and morality into a ‘hateful belief’
This is no longer abotu acceptance- Christians have ALWAYS accepted that peopel have a right to live how they want within the boundaries of the law- Rather, this is now abotu portrayign Christians as evil and homosexuality as the poor poor victims of biggotry and hatefulenss (of course the gay peopel are blatantly biggoted agaisnt Christians, informign us that we have no right to agree with God and Gosd’s word concernign the abomonation which is homosexuality- but gay peopel apaprently are celebrated for their blatatn biggotry, while Christians are portrayed as narrowminded bigots- The gay peopel are succeeding in turnign htis world more andm ore agfainst God and morality, and they will NOT rest until the world as a whole seethes with hatred and vehemence at the mere mention of the name Christianity
ESPN the magazine looks to be barely concealed gay porno, photo edited by a dweeb with the hots for muscular black men without shirts. So no doubt that the fanatically politically correct sports media is a coven of San Francisco democratic types.
Not me... satan is my enemy and the enemy of all that is good. I do undsertand your point. Nothing wrong with supporting a sports team.
This isn’t shocking....you want to know what would be shocking? When a male figure skater comes out as straight. Now THAT would be a big story.
You and me both. The whole professional sports thing is really starting to disgust me. And, waking up to Mike and Mike on ESPN radio this morning, this was seemingly the entire first hour of the show.
Just sick of it.
What does “SMH” mean?
Tired of this non story already. The pervert was on 6 teams in 12 years. You think no one knew he was a homosexual? Get real.............
Are all homosexual basketball players as BAD as he is — Look at the record. Or, are we suppose to ignore his pathetic basketball career, curious minds wanna know. I mean...look at the record, he sucks!
Sounds logical. Thanks.
The Anthony Fremont Progressive Collective has spoken...
He realized Anthony Fremont was watching...
‘I think this guy is a fraud. he was washed up in Basketball and now has found a new way to make big bucks. I heard he has 2 illigitimate children. Thats not many for an NBA player, but it kind of contradicts his Gay claim.’
You may be on to something. In Jason Whitlock’s column today, he called on Daniel Stern(the short, white, overweight commissioner of basketball) to ensure that Jason was on one of the NBA teams roster for all 82 games next season.
Who is Jason Whitlock, why he is the black sports columnist who can pander on for 2500 words when 500 words are more than enough to explain and make your point. He thinks that gay kids need a role model. That is why he feels that Jason Collins, who put the ‘journeyman’ into ‘journeyman player’, should be on a roster for every game next season.
How prodigious has Mr. Collins been over his 12 years in the NBA?
He has averaged 3.6 ppg and 3.8 rpg. Not exactly Hall of Fame numbers. Makes one wonder if he owes Mr. Whitlock some money and Mr. Whitlock is concerned about any ability to repay.
This much is clear. After 12 years in the NBA, Mr. Collins was on his way to NBA oblivion. Think obscurity(as if his career had not already ensured that). With his courageous statement(I did wince when I just typed that phrase), he has deemed himself worthy of continued employment in the NBA. Too bad that what he has accomplished on the court does not warrant the same.
I guess reparations comes in all shapes and sizes.
‘I wait to hear of queer horses and/or jockeys next.’
I believe that those are called, ‘Le Mares’
Collinss girlfriend of three years says she had no idea he was gay.
Personally, I think this is a fading mediocrity looking for one more big score who thinks he can get it by proclaiming himself to be gay (since in PC World, gays are the cool people, after all) and if it doesnt work, he can sue someone and make almost as much as hed make on a new contract.
I just read this from Mark Cuban:
On if Collins will play next season:
I dont know. Jason has kind of been a journeyman. Teams that have had him have loved him but hes a backup center and its not like those are super difficult to find.
All the more reason to “come out” now — that way, if nobody signs him, he claims discrimination based on “sexual orientation” and he sues the NBA. Anything to keep the money flowing.
A quick search on this turned up nothing, but that doesn't mean it's not true. I wouldn't be surprised if it is.
If so, he didn't have them with his girlfriend of 8 years and jilted fiancee Carolyn Moos.
Does anyone have a link on this?
Nor do I, and I have one question for the Jason Collinses of the world:
If it's none of my business, why are you telling me about it?
How come we’re supposed to admire and praise Jason Collins but hate Tim Tebow?
or clinton translation: he is a switch hitter and now can boing sport figures.
Well, they tend to have dribbling problems.
IOW, you can get the same production from a younger player, maybe a rookie, for less.
I think they are unduly fascinated with The Olbermann Way - hoping to get better-paying jobs as regular MSM journalists by loudly espousing leftist ideals.
I am about to post an article today in the New York Post.
