Major Soccer Olympian Megan Rapinoe Outs Her Sexuality (DETAILS) [U.S. Team Player]
Global Grind ^ | 7/8/12 | Rachel Hislop

Posted on 07/08/2012 12:27:29 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

London is gearing up for the Olympics, and soccer Olympian Megan Rapinoe is gearing up for her life out of the closet.

The 27-year-old soccer midfielder, who is currently on the Seattle Sounders Women of the W- League and a member of the United States women's national soccer team, didn't wait to be photographed out with another woman to tell her story. She simply outed herself in a magazine interview by stating "and for the record, I am gay."

The bleach haired Megan will be off to London to represent the United States at the Olympics this year, an achievement in itself, but prior to her departure she wanted to leave her mark on women's soccer by coming out and publically discussing her sexuality with Out magazine.

The "spiral of silence" is what a recent Baptist minister spoke about...the minority in the media screams about homosexuality to make it seem "normal" while the majority of people are silenced.

Let's not be silent.

I am not calling for us to abuse homosexuals...we need to lovingly point them to God, while at the same time we REFUSE to endorse their behavior or celebrate their lifestyle.

Jesus didn't endorse the thievery of the tax collectors or the adultery of the woman found in sin...but he did show them the right way to worship God. Let's follow his example.

I'm waiting for some female jock to call a press conference and admit to the world that she's... gasp...sniff, sniff.... .....

Straight! A heterosexual!

I wonder what kind of stir that would cause.

And yes, I know there are lots of straight chicks in sports, but it would be funny if one of them decided to tweak the idiot MSM like that.

I’d assume it. Never heard of this woman before but from the looks of her I’d say this story is about as shocking as learning that a Professional Bull Rider is straight.

The Gays even have their own rodeo now and are likely infiltrating the straight people's rodeo.

She thinks that they will only have to make one bed in the morning.

I was in a sports bar in Portland several years ago and watching the U.S. women on one of the TVs when this fat ugly woman(?) made a very big deal of her being the girlfriend of Brianne Scurry. Scurry is one of the all-time unattractive women athletes.

I can’t be silent any longer. I am hetero. If my wife would let me I’d have a couple of hot 30 year old honeys move in with us.

In the 2nd grade I realized it when I dropped my pencil in class and spied some underwear. From that point on I knew I couldn’t resist the direction I was pointed in. Oops, double entendre.

Yes, I realize my urges have gotten me in trouble over the years. (Well, until I got the ball and chain, anyway). But, I was just born that way, it’s not a lifestyle choice, so don’t judge me.

The important thing here is that I’m not ashamed of the fast women and tawdry locals of my youth. There, now everyone knows it. Isn’t that better for society?

I have no idea where I heard this, but PGA stands for:

“Professional Gay Association”.

Are there many in the PGA gay?

Huh?

She's an explosive player and figures to be one of the keys to the U.S. team's chances in the Games. Her personal life is her business. I'd rather she kept her silence, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over her coming out publicly.

Excellent post. I’m not at all sure why its necessary to announce her sexual proclivities to the world. But I should care. I, myself, am a male lesbian ... geez, I just did same as this her. Dammit!

I couldn’t care less about her sexual orientation. It isn’t my business. The problem is by making this a federal issue and turning this into a drama she now made it my business.
