WNBA Star Bullied For Being Straight

Now that you've retired, "it gets better."

WNBA star Candice Wiggins won a championship with the Minnesota Lynx and is now being inducted into the San Diego Hall of Champions’ Bretibard Hall of Fame. However, she doesn't look fondly on her time in the league. Why not? She says she experienced excessive bullying... for being heterosexual. In a controversial interview with the San Diego Union Tribune, she explains the way she was treated:
"Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge… I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules [the other players] could apply."
The player also people harassed her for other reasons: 
"There was a lot of jealousy and competition, and we're all fighting for crumbs… The way I looked, the way I played – those things contributed to the tension."
Wiggins said she was repeatedly insulted with slurs and physically harassed:
"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.'"
Wait one minute...  Has anyone checked with Lady Gaga to find out if it's even possible to be a heterosexual victim of harassment? After all, black activists claim white people can't actually be mistreated for their color, under the misguided pretense that racism cuts only one way.
 
Of course, the truth of the matter is this: homosexuals can be just as intolerant as anyone else.  But her treatment does beg the question: Why are organizations so dominated by liberalism such cesspools of intolerance?
