Andrew Sullivan had been lamenting the absence of a gay superstar before someone reminded him of one 30 years removed from the closet, when the famous didn’t dare disclose their homosexuality. Few athletes were more dominant than Martina Navratilova and none had bigger balls (not meant pejoratively, so calm down).
Do men never tire of thinking that the only important events in the world are done by men? You already have your groundbreaker in Martina. That there hasn’t been a man as brave as her is pretty damn weak for the so-called “stronger sex”. When you think of who has come out in sports and entertainment, the groundbreakers are almost all women. A little respect is due. They’re the ones breaking the closet door down for you. Walk through it already, would ya?
