    in support of Jason Collins

    A bit off topic from knives, but this is one of the best articles i've read in a long time and i wanted to share our support for Jason Collins. I hope this gives other people the courage to step up and be proud of who they are... whatever their sexual orientation, race, or any other destinguishing factor... no one should be ashamed of who they are...

    Pretty huge move, and hopefully it makes a difference. I'm really impressed with him stepping up like this.

    And kudos to Kobe for tweeting his support. That plus support from a few other significant figures will help keep this positive response going.

    Was just reading this earlier, brave move and good for him.
    I'm a huge boxing fan and recently Orlando Cruz came out as the first openly gay boxer.
    Orlando Cruz and Jason Collins have changed their sports forever.
    I think it's great that these guys have stepped up.

    I have tremendous respect and admiration for Jason Collins for doing this. The personal difficulties he faced prior to coming out mirror what my other friends who are now openly gay have told me. But, on top of that, he's doing it on international stage.

    I hope the best for him.
