This week, the San Francisco Giants became the first professional sports team to join forces with the “It Gets Better” campaign against bullying of gay and lesbian youths. Is the climate changing for homosexuals in pro sports?

    I remember Denis Rodman (Chicago Bulls) and I remember him putting all the commentary around him for wearing womens clothing, colored hair and makeup. And I believe he had come out as bi-sexual. Am I remembering this right?

    I keep hearing from most people in sports that “it would be a problem” if someone came out or just trying to talk about guys in sports is a problem. What problem or problems are they talking about?
