WNBA: Players Dispute Candace Wiggins’ Allegations of Being Bullied Because She’s Not Gay

Former WNBA player Candace Wiggins started a firestorm after her claims about the WNBA began to spread.  Wiggins said the WNBA is 98% gay women, and that she was bullied mentally and physically for being straight.  The WNBA front office declined to comment “for now,” but individual players spoke out to refute Wiggins claims.

WNBA: Candace Wiggins Says 98% of WNBA is Gay & She Was Bullied for Being Straight

Society often thinks of WNBA players as butch lesbians, so when a player like Skylar Diggins or Candace Parker comes along, they are catapulted in celebrity, getting more attention, endorsements etc.  Those ladies also happen to be GREAT basketball players, but even if they weren’t it wouldn’t really matter.  Candace Wiggins is a more “feminine” basketball player as well, but she says her feminity and heterosexuality, led to her being bullied and mistreated in the league.

Multiple WNBA team and players were fined this week for speaking out on social injustice. Sure, the league hid behind the fact that the players violated the uniform code by wearing black shirts that showed support for both the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the police officers in Dallas who lost their lives after being ambushed by a gunman. The league fined teams $5,000 each and fined players who wore the black shirts $500 each but the money wasn’t the point. Even Carmelo Anthony spoke out about the fines and said he did not agree with how they were trying to quiet the players. The league is trying to control what causes players can support because they made all players wear shirts in support of Orlando, when a domestic terrorist opened fire inside a gay nightclub, killing 49 people. Many players have spoken out this week and even in the face of being threatened with more fines, players like Sue Bird and her Seattle Storm teammates are still standing up for their beliefs.
