Hidden: Swoopes Admits To Being Gay: In todays society, many people are homophobic, and afraid of gays. Despite all of this, Swoops admitted to ESPN that she was gay. I admire her for her courage in facing this issue, and maybe peoples perception of gays will be different from now on.

Like anybody's going to take you seriously with that asinine, juvenile, ignorant screen name. You "applaud" Swoopes? What a crock of shit. If you really give a damn, do something about your screen name.

I think what she had to say will overshadow how well she said it. Throughout the entire interview she was articulate and well spoken, extreamly rare in a sports interview.

Hey The Black Hand- We already had this dicussion about my SN like 3 times- and it got nowhere. I already told you guys it had no meaning- and you guys were making the situation bigger than it had to be. Now about the Post- I do applaude Swoopes. Shes a hell of a ballplayer, and hopefully this will give support to other gays down the road. Not to mention, it gives the WNBA some much needed publicity. But thanks for your opinion. : )

Does anyone know the origin of the term "the black hand?" I do. "asinine, juvenile, ignorant?" Do some more research TBH
