69 countries competing criminalize homosexuality. @mPinoe is extremely lucky to be living in the US. @SUBWAY https://t.co/tTpNq4k6Ar

Look everyone: right-ring socialism. I think that even has a name.
I kneel when my office prays, and I can assure you it is not so I become the “center of attention”. No one even grasps that it’s a Kaepernick. I do it because more often than not, something is said or done in office prayers that disgusts me in its presumptiousness, and I want to feel in my conscience that I’ve done my part to step away from it.

The only important “grandstanding” is that 180+ out athletes participated in the 2021 Olympics, and between them won 11 gold, 12 silver and nine bronze medals. That is more out athletes than participated in all previous Olympics combined, and reflects the growing acceptance of LGBTQ athletes in sports and society. Why IGF relentlessly focuses on the negative rather than the positive is beyond me.
