The Other Side of the Jason Collins Story

Posted: May 9, 2013 in Uncategorized

My last post failed to take into account the hurt and pain that Jason Collins, the 1st professional basketball player to come out, may have caused his fiance of 8 years. Not that I dispute that Collins’ announcement signaled progress for the LGBT community, I’m simply saying that as a partner in a serious, committed relationship, Collins should have disclosed his questions of sexual preference as soon as he had doubts. Period.

It’s a sensitive subject, especially in the black community, but the desire to please society should never override the desire to respect the ones you love.
