Ordinarily I would feel sorry for such narrow minded and backward people, but in your case I am willing to make an exception.
What on earth gives you the impression he's anti-gay?

Lol it's amazing how many tards there are in the world and you rank number 1 of the day congrats, maybe when people stop thinking you are an invalid and your stupid state allows cages for MMA fighting people will take you seriously. Must be fun to create accusations about people you have never met while completely missing the point of the post. Sooj i'll ship this one over to newcastle in exchange for a keg if you don't mind

If someone in the UFC comes out as gay, I would not care because I watch MMA to see athletes compete in Mixed Martial Arts, not speculate about what their sexual preference is.

Good on him for being comfortable enough in his own skin to come out. But LL is right, this is huge for him. 100% of jersey sales from the Wizards in the last week have been Jason Collins jerseys.
So you guys think Collins came out for his own selfish reasons? I think you are wrong personally. I also don't think his skill level should have anything to do with coming out. How can you guys hate on him for doing what he felt was the right thing to do? You act like it's all positive for Collins. He will receive plenty of negative backlash and this could not have been easy. But to be offended because he isn't an all star in his prime is just silly IMO.

On the contrary, he's received lots of positive support.

I still dont see the point. Most fans couldn't care less. The rest are idiots who will always be idiots. His close family and friends already know, no doubt. So who exactly is he telling? The whole thing is an utterly pointless exercises in attention seeking.

This idea that he'll pave the way for other athletes to come out. Who gives a shit. I don't want to know what way your dick bends thank you. Does anybody here actually want to know the sexual orientation of MMA fighters? I cant think of anything I would rather know less.

So, ill ask again, who's benefit is it for?

He has received both negative and positive. Check out Chris Broussard's hard Christian stance on ESPN about how he believes it's a sin and against God. Sure he has got some support. But some people act like there is no backlash to go with it. There has been and will be more to come.

Where did I say any of this?? I explained why LL said what he did, and then I gave my opinion.

I just don't understand anyone being annoyed or upset about Collins coming out. People(maybe not you) are implying he is doing for selfish gains. I don't care why he is doing it really but I see no reason to hate on him in any way.
