Men jocks are always assumed to be straight because what gay man would want to bulk up his muscles and run around sweating instead of thinking about clothes and shopping? Lots of them, actually.
And though there will always be haters, I echo the NBA’s hope that this whole announcement is greeted, in general, with a collective shrug. If not, Jason Collins can handle it. I mean, what the hell. He handled playing for the Celtics, didn’t he?
