    conservatives commenting on this story today is unsurprising and yet still annoying. A self-described "conservative" commented on this story on another website with something to the effect of "I have an announcement...I'm heterosexual..now where's my medal?"

    Ha. Ha. Ha. That right wing sense of humor just kills me. As usual "conservatives" just don't get it. (or anything for that matter)

    To be blunt, if you do not suffer from seriously diminished mental capacity or the personality disorder that is right wing extremism and still vote Republican...I'd double check on the two previously mentioned conditions.

      I see it all the time on sports boards. I diaried an exchange I had once:

      Moron in an online public forum: I don't understand why gay people have to be in your face about their sexuality all the time! I don't go around announcing my heterosexuality to everyone!

      Me: You just did, dumbass.

      Moron: Fag.

      I win again.

      The inhumanity, semantic contortions, illogic, and just plain hate are breathtaking. And there's nothing like shutting one of them down while killing time to brighten your day. Logic drives them insane, the way it always does with the hidebound and obdurate.

      The problem with going with your gut as opposed to your head is that the former is so often full of shit. - Randy Chestnut

      The response from fellow NBA players and management seems overwhelmingly positive.  That matters more than what stupid anonymous internet people say.  The same people making those comments probably also hate him because he's black.
