Frank Bruni on Jason Collins

Washington Wizards' Jason Collins and Wizards' Jan Vesely battle for a rebound against Chicago Bulls' Carlos Boozer in Chicago, Illinois(Community Matters) “He’s letting us focus on his gayness precisely so we can focus less on others’ down the road.”

some readers routinely tell me that they’d be less bothered by homosexuals if we’d just please shut up about it.

When the federal government outlaws discrimination against people based on sexual orientation, which it still hasn’t done.

When immigration laws give same-sex couples the same consideration that they do heterosexual ones. When the Defense of Marriage Act crumbles and our committed relationships aren’t relegated to a lesser status, a diminished dignity.
