    chris haven’t you heard jokes about lesbians moving in together and adopting kids on the first date

    pretty standard joke by lesbian comedians

    This is petty, I know, but couldn’t Brittney have picked a girlfriend on a better team? I mean, the Shock are better this year than they have been for the last two, but at 12-21, the Shock are in a three-way tie for worst record in the league, where Phoenix, at 27-5 (due in no small part to Griner herself) has the league’s BEST record.

    At the same time, I do acknowledge that Griner can be OUT and have a girlfriend now, which is more than she’s been able to do since high school, so…

    Good on her.

    Lol, @Chris, it is just a joke, but there is a bit of truth to it. My best friend is a lesbian and she moved in with her girlfriend after dating for only 3 weeks.
