She should've been clued in when he kept accidentally saying "power-bottom" instead of "power-forward" every time they talked.

I'm wondering if this whole scenario could have been avoided if she'd just done anal when he asked.

bopis: Killer Cars: Dr Dreidel: There's no more reason to assume she's absolutely right than there is for OP's supposition or any of the explanations I offered. Some require a bit more assumption (or "reaching") than others, but TFA also suggests she and J-Coll haven't been besties since then. It's entirely possible that something other than "Jason's a big meanie who just stopped talking to me one day and then he broke our engagement and only 4 years later did I find out it's cause he's gay" is the truth.

Certainly, but to her credit it sounds like she just wants to open dialogue for the sake of bringing closure. Whether there were actions on her part that led to Collins bringing the relationship to such an abrupt end or not, I'm not going to fault someone at least wanting to hear a direct explanation.

I'm not going to haul off and call Collins an asshole, either. Society didn't exactly make it easy on Collins to be who he is comfortably.

fark THAT. Plenty of guys and girls have felt pressure to be not gay. Not all of them strung along another person for 8 yearsto make their life more convenient.
and He's not a hero because he is doing it at the tail-end of his career when popular opinion is swining in his favor.
The figure skater Johnny Weir is more of a hero for being as flaming as he wanted to be even though he knew it cost him.

Because it's so incredibly hard to be a gay figure skater.

russlar: dafuq is up with that pinky?

I think it's just an ugly colored ring.  Nothing wrong with her hands in this photo:

Didn't we already go over this story back when the news came out or am I imagining that thread?

So the first openly gay NBA player is a jerk. They really are like everyone else.

//yes, lying to someone for years about your relationship is a dick move.
