We recently celebrated the fact that an active pro athlete in one of the four major sports in the United States announced that he was gay. All through the sports world athletes resoundingly welcomed the news and congratulated Jason Collins for doing something he had no reason to do in the first place.
I don’t care that he is gay.
I know that this is a big deal in the sports world as men are supposed to be all macho and stuff, but what we should asking is why it took so long. Why did Jason Collins wait until he was 34 to come out as an openly gay man? Shouldn’t we be past this? This shouldn’t be an issue at all, but it is.
He’s gay. So what?
One day my kids will bring home a special someone. Someone that they want to spend the rest of their lives with. I will be honest with you, if it happens to be a member of the same sex, I will be caught off guard. It’s not something that I would ever expect, but it is also something that that won’t bother me.
As long as they are happy, I wouldn’t care if they were gay.
It will be a great day when we don’t have to celebrate the fact that someone announced that they were gay. Hopefully the future is a place where stuff like this doesn’t matter.
Congratulations Jason Collins, but I don’t care that you are gay.
It’s none of my business.
