Candice Wiggins is a recently-retired WNBA basketball star who claims she was bullied for, get this, being straight. Wiggins claims it contributed to her early retirement.
Candice Wiggins was a college star at Stanford, the third pick of the 2008 WNBA draft and a 2011 champion. And at the mountaintop of her basketball career, her sexuality marred the moment.
There is a “very, very harmful” culture running throughout the WNBA, she says, which saw her get bullied during her eight-year career because she is heterosexual.
The 30-year-old couldn’t take it anymore — being harassed for being straight and fighting for attention in a league that is starved.
Welcome to 21st Century America, where you will be forced to care about fringe issues and/or lifestyles, or your career will be destroyed. The WNBA has enough trouble drawing in fans, and when you ostracize straight players, you also ostracize straight fans.
You know, I have no problem with the LBGT community, but I have a major problem with the members of the Gay Mafia. They’re no better than Black Lives Matter or the Occupy crowd.
