A Burgeoning Non-issue

Kwaku Alston for Sports Illustrated
This week Jason Collins became the first current major league player to come out as gay. I hope the largely positive reception is a sign that being gay will soon be a non-issue in all aspects of our society -- as much of a non-issue as being Jewish or married. It should be such a non-issue that it can be casually mentioned in a conversation (or public interview) without headlines or fuss.
