England women’s captain Casey Stoney has spoken publicly about being gay for the first time.

"I feel it’s really important for me to speak out as a gay player because there are so many people struggling who are gay, and you hear about people taking their own lives because they are homosexual. That should never happen.
"How can I expect other people to speak about themselves if I’m not willing to do that myself?"
…
"For the last 10 years I’ve always cared too much what other people think. I was frightened of the stereotypes, frightened of being judged, frightened of what other people might say, especially the abuse you can get through social media.
"But I think I’m in a place where I feel so comfortable in my own skin, I feel so loved by the person I’m with, that I feel I can face anything."
…
"I could look at it two ways.  Is it because people don’t feel like they need to come out and talk about it because it’s never been an issue?
"Or is it because, like I have been for the last 10 years, people are frightened? Even in this day and age, frightened of being judged, frightened of what people might think of them, or what they might say? It doesn’t change you as a person.
"Can you really be happy, can you really be yourself? If you are not comfortable in yourself and you are not comfortable in social settings or your surroundings, how can you go into a team environment and be yourself and train hard and feel relaxed with your team-mates if you don’t know who you are?"


 “I could look at it two ways,” she added. “[Are so few gay players out] because people don’t feel like they need to come out and talk about it because it’s never been an issue?” 
 “Or is it because, like I have been for the last 10 years, people are frightened? Even in this day and age, frightened of being judged, frightened of what people might think of them, or what they might say? It doesn’t change you as a person.”

"We were just trying to make sweet love. That’s about it."

In the WNBA, what looks like a fight about to break out between two of the greatest players…can turn into a little love fest. 

Just exactly the kind of queer playfulness that mainstream sports folks have feared like the coming of the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
