: : :Every now and then you get these same folks coming on this board to say girls basketball is dead, all girls ballers are lesbians. They should transition to playing soccer or volleyball instead.
: : Don't fall for these fools. These are parents who's kids can't hack it in girls basketball. THEY ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, lol
: : So they come on our board to talk crap about basketball. Pathetic, move on already. I'm sorry your daughter didn't get scholarships or a bench warmer in her high school. You should have known at early stage that's she's not skilled enough to be baller.
: : Leave and stay away from our site. Stay on your lane! LOL
: As I said before, I couldn't care less what grown women's sexual orientation is. Having said that, mothers (and fathers) of young girls do care about these things, and often make decisions about what sports their daughters play with this as a consideration. It's called reality....
In the past few years, the following players have come out as lesbians: Elena Delle Donne, Angel McCoughtry, Diana Taurasi, Layshaia Clarendon, Glory Johnson, Brittney Griner, Janelle McCarville, Cappie Pondexter, Penny Taylor and now Sue Bird. There are probably others who have come out that I don't remember but that is a surprising number of top players in one sport and that's only the ones who have made public announcements. I think its hard to see a list like that and not start to associate the sport with lesbianism, especially since the core audience is also gay females. Others, like Sheryl Swoopes have renounced their previously admitted lesbianism leading to the offensive conclusion by some that lesbianism is situational.
