While both the NFL and the NBA are majority people of color, (66% of players in the NFL are Black while 78% of players in the NBA are Black), I didn’t necessarily assume that players of color would be the first out of the closet. It flies in the face of stereotypes that communities of color are more homophobic, and it brings into sharp juxtaposition the assumptions we make about masculinity, sports, and sexuality. It is complicated—and goes against the narrative that it’s not as important for folks of color to be out, which I’ve often heard articulated in communities of color. I would never call the perspective of a professional athlete marginalized—too often athletes are epitomized as the pinnacle of success in our culture—but the stories these athletes are telling is different. And our reactions to them are telling.

"only Nigeria has a larger Black population than Brazil"

yet when you hear “Brazilian”, is this who you think of?

Boom. 

When George W. Bush was president, he asked Brazil’s president, “Do you have blacks, too?” Brazil’s president was shocked to hear it and Condoleeza Rice interfered, informing Bush that Brazil was the country with the largest black population outside Africa. [x]

"Do you have blacks" like we’re pets or an infestation

"I do social work, focusing on young families. Basically I play and dance with babies."

"When you’re a trans woman you are made to walk this very fine line, where if you act feminine you are accused of being a parody and if you act masculine, it is seen as a sign of your true male identity. And if you act sweet and demure, you’re accused of reinforcing patriarchal ideas of female passivity, but if you stand up for your own rights and make your voice heard, then you are dismissed as wielding male privilege and entitlement. We trans women are made to teeter on this tightrope, not because we are transsexuals, but because we are women. This is the same double bind that forces teenage girls to negotiate their way between virgin and whore, that forces female politicians and business women to be aggressive without being seen as a bitch, and to be feminine enough not to emasculate their alpha male colleagues, without being so girly as to undermine their own authority."
