Jason Collins Says He Was Engaged, We Should Feel Bad For the Woman (Video)

Jason Collins

Everyone is well within their rights to praise Jason Collins for coming out of the closet. I am sure it wasn’t easy thing to do, even though he will be handsomely rewarded financially for his decision.

But, just like any big announcement, there were casualties online the way. Collins spoke to Good Morning America and I thought it was interesting what he said about being engaged.

Collins says he was engaged at one point but called it off, because he felt he would be getting married for the wrong reasons — he felt he was doing it to convince himself that was the life he should lead.

There is a woman reading this right now that was lied to and deceived by Jason Collins in the worst possible way. She was just a prop to keep his secret, because he wasn’t man enough at the time to come out. So, while people are calling Collins courageous and heaping praise, just remember he isn’t without fault.

It would be naive to think she was the only woman that Collins lied to.  They were just used as props, until they weren’t useful anymore and then discarded like trash.

Don’t just show half of the picture, show all sides.

  • We don’t know if they was having sex, Hell, just b/c He’s gay, we have NO IDEA if he ever had sex with a man. We don’t know. What’s lost in all this is, he let her go. He didn’t Marry her b/c he knew it wasn’t right. He didn’t have to tell her the exact reason. People break up with people after 20 years of Marriage for no reason at all. Does that mean, they owe them anything. Not at all. Be happy they informed you they don’t want to be with you and move the hell on. You get no tokens.

  • I think you’re missing a major point: that it can be confusing to understand and figure out one’s sexuality. Collins probably felt that he was truly in love with his fiance. Life isn’t always easy and straightforward.
