Martina Navratilova zings media on Jason Collins’ coming out

http://twitter.com/#!/MangyLover/status/328908511973097472

As Twitchy reported, the NBA’s Jason Collins came out as gay. Bill Clinton and members of the media swooned: Historic and stuff!

Wonder how Martina Navratilova, those in the WNBA and women’s soccer feel about the “first professional athlete” getting this attention.

Hmm.

Others offered up a great big yawn: It is 2013, isn’t it?

Martina Navratilova is wondering what the fuss is about.

Giggles ensued when the long-time openly gay Martina Navratilova weighed in.

That took all of 23 minutes twitter.com/martina/status…

@byrontau gee- and all this time I thought tennis was a real sport:)

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

Well done Jason Collins- you are a brave man. And a big man at that:) 1981 was the year for me- 2013 is the year for you:)

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

@jacktomczak first active top athlete- yes.

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

Zing!

It’s not easy to come out when one is still active- shouldn’t be an issue, but it is. That’s why so many don’t do it till after.

Then this happened.

@kingofkingsmill only at night:)

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

Heh.

She continued tweeting about the Collins news.

@realbradwesley but until we have full equal rights, recognition and protection under the law, being gay will remain an issue.

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

Sigh.

Hey Jason Collins-you are now an activist!!! And trust me, you will sleep a lot better now- freedom is a sweet feeling indeed!

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

@rianalden what community? We don’t have equal rights, so yes, it is a big deal. Some pioneers are big deals:)

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

“Look at ME.”

@davedeibert I have been called a lot of things in my life, but a gangsta is a first I believe:)

— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) April 29, 2013

We may not like Martina’s politics, but many on Twitter still got a kick out of her exchanges and her schooling of the swooning media.

That, by the way, is a reminder that Martina Navratilova is a boss.

@byrontau in @martina‘s defense tennis is at least as much a sport as the Wizards are a professional bball team

— Tim Miller (@Timodc) April 29, 2013

A history lesson. “@martina: Well done Jason Collins- you are a brave man. And a big man at that:) (cont) twitter.com/DrMorpheus/sta…

Martina Navratilova is flirting with Jason Collins via twitter. Now that’s progress.

— Matt (@MattIsATwitNow) April 29, 2013

Indeed!
