But she believes — as do many other players I’ve talked with — that it isn’t just sexism that provokes the anger about women’s basketball. It’s the fact that the majority of the league is women of color, and many are openly queer. That exacerbates the hate.

Sexism + racism + homophobia is a really ugly combination. The WNBA is an obvious triple target for bigots.

Sad but true. So many guys are insecure, and it's not good for anyone.
