Candice Wiggins: Bullied Out of the WNBA for Being Heterosexual

(Before It's News)

Despite all the hoaxes, people really do get bullied for their sexual preference. An example is Candice Wiggins, a star player who has had enough and is leaving the WNBA:

She was the No. 3 overall draft pick out of Stanford in 2008. She was named the league’s Sixth Woman of the Year as a rookie. She won a championship with the Minnesota Lynx.

The success, Wiggins says now, hid a darker reality.

She has abruptly announced her retirement, despite having just turned only 30 — largely because she is sick of being targeted for harassment for being heterosexual.

“Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Wiggins said. “I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. …

“People were deliberately trying to hurt me all of the time. I had never been called the B-word so many times in my life than I was in my rookie season. I’d never been thrown to the ground so much. The message was: ‘We want you to know we don’t like you.’ …

“So many people think you have to look like a man, play like a man to get respect. I was the opposite. I was proud to a be a woman, and it didn’t fit well in that culture.”

Now Wiggins wants to play beach volleyball instead.

She touts the sport’s camaraderie and its “celebration of women and the female body as feminine, but strong and athletic.”

No one watches the WNBA anyway, although liberals seem to support it in theory. It stays alive because it is subsidized by the moonbats running the NBA.

Too much a woman for the WNBA.
