Just Did It
With the recent Supreme Court rulings, Jason Collins coming out, gays in the Boy Scouts,... - LGBT rights have been a hot topic on many news shows.
Brittney Griner's sexuality, looks and even her gender have been spoken of as much as her dominance on the basketball court.
Suggestions of Chimerism and Hermaphroditism bring to mind the stories of Caster Semenya.
Many people already stereotype female athletes and being at least Bi-sexual anyway...
So Ms Griner signs with Nike as their spokesperson.
Doesn't the WNBA rely on it's sizable Lesbian fan base as it's main target market.
Aren't most other players in the WNBA assumed to be lesbians as well?
Many women who participate in activities generally associated with masculinity are already stereotyped as being lesbians.
I don't know...
Is the stigma the same for lesbians as it is for gays?
Do men accept homosexuality from women more readily than they do from men?
(Personally, I can see what two attractive women could see in each other. Maybe we males are taught to accept that seeing or being with two hot women is a good thing. But I just don't see the allure of being with another guy.)
