Personally I think that everyone should be concerned when something like this happens. I empathize with Candice about what she has been experiencing the locker rooms. No one should have to endure what she has. I wouldn’t imagine however, that as soon as this news it’s the entire gay community’s fault. When did we get this shortsighted and prejudice, oh wait… we always have been. Hearing Candice speaks her mind is all us, she has a right to and she deserves our warmth. Whatever is happening on her team is hiwever, not the LGBT community’s fault. That’s the misinformation that has followed this news and it breaks my heart that we have come so far but we are still trapped (too many of us) in willful ignorance. I hope she gets the help she needs to be more comfortable as she pursues her career, but I hope the media stop giving the bait to the cisgender, straight, white men who like belittle the gay community. For a healthy read, I encourage you to stay open minded as you read the article itself, included here:
