“...told her not to be open publicly about her sexuality because it would hurt recruiting, ..”

an accurate statement and hardly newsworthy.

Baylor also told Griner to keep quiet about secretly being a dude.

No kidding. I am wondering when the homosexuals will wake up and figure out they aren’t helping themselves.

I had been neutral on homosexuals until they went rape on the public. Can’t stand them now.

Oh, that Brittney.

In DriftDiver’s picture, she looks like a young, bulked up Bob Marley. Not a bad thing in itself, but not particularly feminine, either.

While they make themselves more and more despicable to normal Americans, you have to admit their activism (with the help of the administration and media) has gotten them:
1. The ability to serve in the military and be open about their queerness.
2. The ability to "marry" in several states (which means dipping into the public wallet as "spouses").
3. The outrageous effrontery to force businesses by threat of lawsuit to cater to them, when they insult the religious beliefs of those businesses (whatever happened to, "We reserve the right to refuse service"?).
4. A big pipeline into OPM (it's never been about "love") through insurance benefits.
5. In general, a big bat with which to beat America over the head while screaming "intolerance!".

DADT was the best way to deal with queers. For the longest time they insisted the world stay out of their bedrooms.
Now they insist the world peer into their bedrooms, and approve of what they do

I remember that little Mulkey girl from when she played for Louisiana Tech. That has been a long time. I guess she stayed in basketball.

"too stupid"

That's not the first time that theory has been offered. And it might be true. I think libs have a reverse logic relative to the idea that the best should rise to the top. With the elevations of sportwriters like Lupica and Olbermann to regular journalist-type jobs, lib logic seems to be to promote their dregs.

The coach was right. Who would want their daughter on a team (and in the showers) with a homosexual? My nephews wife was a star basketball player who got a full ride to college. There were so many lesbians on the team she quit and transferred to different college.

At least he/she shaves regularly and keeps the 5 o’clock shadow down to a minimum....which I can’t see would hurt recruiting.

Seriously...does ANYONE here watch ANY WNBA games? Know anyone who does? Does the league get federal subsidies under Title IX or something? How does it stay afloat?

It is tied into the NBA. Initially, NBA franchises owned WNBA teams through their affiliations. Eventually, from what I understand, some teams in the WNBA had independent ownerships but I think a relationship through finances has continued.

I was in charge of athletic teams at a Summer retreat. I was not the coach just the guy who had to arrange for referees, see that they got paid that sort of stuff. We had 3 girls on our team who were all three real babes.

One of them was heterosexual I am certain. One was definitely a dyke tho I wasn’t sure until a few years later I saw she had gotten involved with a Lesbian group. The third girl I was not sure but thought it was a better than 50-50 chance that she was. That last girl was the prettiest one of them all tho the lesbian was pretty darn hot. I actually wondered if I might have been able to change her in a romantic way.

I later learned that both the lesbians were just what I thought they were and the non lesbian was not one.

I see a lot of lesbians who are ugly, mean spirited and rude. These two girls were both pleasant to boys and I could imagine a really handsome boy maybe changing them to our side.

That’s what we always thought lol! So if she’s really a he and likes girls..that would mean she’s not a lesbo. Right? It’s all so confusing.

Have they tested her DNA? Just sayin’... Doesn't she hold a lot of women's NCAA basketball records? I couldn't get that muscular if I tried... Sure she's female? I wouldn't want some guy taking my record away!

She turned down playing for the U.S. in the Olympics. Made us wonder if they have testing for that kind of thing besides steroids.

Open philandering would also hurt recruiting. Why do these people insist on being identified by their sexual practices? It’s an orientation, not a vocation. Why don’t they try just being people?

I don’t care if she’s a lesbian, but I do care that she is probably transgenderded and didn’t belong playing against females....that is my opinion....I have no solutions for this....it would be hard to decide against such a person, but it puts every other player at a terrible disadvantage...sort of like Lebron James playing against a hs boys team...

A woman, gets a chance to chase her dream and play professionally, she is mentored and given a college education.

Never is she asked to deny her personal life, just not to make it an issue..............she gets her dream, she cashes the check and then she demonizes those who provided her the opportunity to be her best.

She has everything she wants except one thing, to a hero in a perverted community..........at the expense of those who helped her be her best.

BITCH.

I’m a big basketball fan but I stopped watching the WNBA years ago. Their season competes with too many other sports plus it’s in the summer time to get a big following.

With her voice, that of a 40 year old baritone, the first time I heard her talk with my back to the TV, I thought it was a man speaking. I never would have guessed she was gay. /S
