The NBA’s Jason Collins came out as gay in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated.

And right on cue!

Her father, President Bill Clinton, issued a swooning statement almost immediately.

He took to Twitter to do so as well.

Most commend Collins for his honesty.

Of course, Twitter users must weigh in with some signature snark.


Many greet the news with a big yawn: Why is it news?

That won’t stop some members of the media, and their attempts to treat gay people as some kind of pet, though.

Good thing he didn’t come out as a conservative. Now that would cause problems.
