My tweet about Jason Collins’ coming out went viral. It was even picked up by the Internet newspaper, the Examiner. 

The majority of the response has been positive. But of course, homophobic trolls had to have their say. Their responses ranged from the passive aggressive concern trolling (in the form of religion) to outright hostility–a couple of people were glad that black gay youth have high suicide rates. Below is a “greatest hits” of the hatred tweeted my way.
