Not only that but they would be both massively praised and scrutinized. There is always a backlash if someone have some form of "special status" and if you had a homosexual NHLer who was drawing a few too many penalties, you know the rage would be if referees are either protecting him or if he's being targeted for his orientation.

We're still not a mature enough society for people to be themselves. We're getting there, though. Just have to wait for the ones who've had everything to realize they have to start sharing and that if they become the minority, that doesn't mean we're going to throw them a parade.
