"The talk about the WNBA being full of lesbians is not true," Swoopes says. "There are as many straight women in the league as there are gay. What really irritates me is when people talk about football, baseball and the NBA, you don't hear all of this talk about the gay guys playing. But when you talk about the WNBA, then it becomes an issue. Sexuality and gender don't change anyone's performance on the court."
Im pretty sure gay dudes in male sports is made a pretty big social issue...what is she talking about?
The reason she can do this in her league and not other leagues is because I wouldnt consider her as all that unique in the WNBA. The ratio of gay to straight in female sports isnt as lopsides towards straights as it is male sports.
Of course this is all my humble opinion.
