Twitter Users Condemn Jason Collins For Coming Out As Gay
Whenever a big time news story breaks, you can always rely on Twitter to give you both insightful commentary and a representation from the depths of the Internet, both in 140 characters or less. This is a profile of the latter, as many people have taken it upon themselves to try and tear down NBA player Jason Collins for coming out as gay.
And, in case you were wondering, these valiant crusaders had nothing to say about straight athletes who commit adultery, have premarital sex, have children out of wedlock, or violate the law, all violations of God’s instructions for mankind in the bible. Onto the intolerance:
I feel bad for whoever was in the locker room or showers with Jason Collins. #disgusting

It’s people like these ones that make me want to look for another planet to live on. Fortunately, there have also been plenty of people showing their support for Collins, support that he truly deserves for coming out and facing such ridiculous intolerance from closed minded people such as these.
