Global Grind ^ | 7/8/12 | Rachel Hislop

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.

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.

Soccer, isn’t that the gay sport? Or is tennis more gay?

Gay?

Okay, I'm not up on all the vernacular, but I thought midfielder meant bi.

Who gives a flyin’? If it’s so normal, why the desire to proclaim it to the world?

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?

“Isn’t it just assumed that most female athletes in team sports are gay?:

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

“Professional Gay Association”.

Are there many in the PGA gay?

Only one way to check whether she’s a true blonde or true brunette. . . .and this is a family site. . .

“Major Soccer Olympian”

So she’s a contradiction in terms as well as a flaming dyke?

I’ve been a closet heterosexual all my life, and plan to limit my public pronouncement to this post.

Apparently if you drown them the bottle blondes sink and the real ones float.

And a cheat as well, constantly coming off her line early in the penalty shootout.

This is as shocking as the Anderson Cooper announcement. The mind reels at what is coming up next/sarc

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.
