As for being the first pro athlete to come out, he isn't. Most have come out after they retired, and even had a lot more backlash than what Jason is getting.
Not meaning to offend you OP, but when we don't have to have these threads, true social equality will be achieved.
i agree and i look forward to the time where things like this are a non-issue... in the meantime, while change is still in progress, dialogue is important
Oops, didn't notice it was you Jon. Funny, it's pretty much a non-issue in the military despite what the media likes to dramatize.
yeah... i have a lot of friends in the military... even before dont ask dont tell, people talked and for the most part no one really cared... that being said, regardless of the place, company, or setting, even just a couple of ******** can cause huge problems ;)
I know this is a little off topic but there is a transgendered MMA fighter in the UFC, Fallon Fox. And unfortunately her reception hasnt been too well recieved at all.
Well, the California State Athletic Commission sees nothing wrong with it actually. And shes only the first.
i dont know... the womens mma right now is stacked with amazing fighters... i'd put many of them up against men and i can see them easily winning (sometimes even at a size/weight disadvantage)... this one is a bit more tricky, but if both fighters are cool with it, i dont see a problem personally. But like i said, sometimes it can get tricky.
