So, how is it that a "homosexual" can do the same? Should we now how 4 bathrooms/locker rooms? One for heterosexual males, one for heterosexual females, and one for the homosexual counterparts?

See.. once you open pandora's box, you can't close it.

Are you being serious?

You're automatically assuming that because one man is gay, that means he must like all men. It doesn't work that way. Just like hetero men don't find every woman attractive, gay men don't find every man attractive.

Pull your head out of your ass.

You serious? Of course this has a meaning. Some of you guys are so ignorant against homosexuals and how looked down on it is in most places in the world.

It's very similar with racism. Just ignorant people who live in an environment where it is seen acceptable to be against gays. Just like racism was in 1900.

Exactly. No reason anyone is going to want him around now. If he could actually play it might be another story.

Why should him coming openly "gay" mean that noone wants him to play anymore. NBA shouldn't refer from signing homosexual players. There are definitely lot more homosexual players in pro sports but are afraid of coming out public. This helps some, but people like on this board are the reason why it is tough to do this.

Stay Cool Collins!!!

Doesn't matter if he likes none of his teammates. The guy came out and said he likes men, not women. So, why can't a man go into a women's bathroom? He can very well not like any of the women in the bathroom.

You guys that want to defend homosexuality are hypocrites at best. You want everything done your way, etc. Life doesn't work like that. If these homosexual guys want to "come out", fine. They just need to use different locker rooms/bathrooms.

If not, let men go into women's locker rooms and bathrooms. We are "accepting" nowadays.

How is that?....


He prpbably gets tons of women ( or men) ....and didn't want to have to settle down.

That is a really smart move on his part .....bieng a multi million dollar athlete.

Him leaving the girl on the wedding day doesn't mean he's gay...means he had cold feet...wich happens to alot of men......

You sound exactly like a racist before the 1960's.

"Colored people are different because of their skin. Therefore they should have to drink at different fountains, have different bathrooms, and sit at the back of the bus."

People like you just need to disappear for all of eternity but that's not happening anytime soon unfortunately.

Remember when Americans last thought like this?



You just sound like an idiotic bigot. It's because of people like you that America can never truly find equality.

Another hypocrite. Your logic is flawed.

Here is the argument.

A man, who likes women, cannot go into a women's bathroom/locker room. That same man doesn't "like" any of the women in that particular bathroom/locker.

Now, A homosexual man, who likes men, is allowed in a men's locker room/bathrom. That man may not like any of those men in that locker room/bathroom.

What is the difference? You guys want to be so "accepting" that's fine. However, you also have to be accepting to everything else. Men in women's locker rooms/bathrooms. Women in men's locker rooms/bathrooms.

You can't have it one way and not the other.

at the people in the first page saying why does he have to tell it to the public, why not keep to himself

It's about being a role model for other teenagers with this problem, motivating others, showing it's ok.. showing they can be NBA athletes too. That's why he listed all his credentials. To you it might mean nothing... but I'm betting a lot of kids have this problem and don't know who to talk to, and what to do. And that's when it helps.

It's not all for himself.. it's for the community. If the society was all-accepting already, he wouldn't have had to done this.

Agreed they shouldn't but my guess is they will. If he was any good it might be a different story but he's not. If they really want a Collins they can bring back his ***** eating brother. Same stiff on the court basically.

Think of it this way. NBA players are peak athletes in great shape. You saying that if you were in a change room with 10 woman with amazing bodies you wouldn't be staring?

Dude ...what are you going on about ?

You know nobody will care about this. He's a fringe pro-athlete AT BEST. This is almost equivalent to a normal guy coming out. Collins never amounted to anything in this league for this to be a story. I think he went to the finals with Kidd but he had no impact anyways lol.
