In the seventies we had to make it acceptable for people to accept girls and women as athletes. We had to make it okay for them to be active. Those were much scarier times for females in sports.
A girl didn't get an athletic scholarship until the fall of 1972 for the very first time.
I think it's impossible to judge whether another person should come out. You just hope they will on their own time and their own terms.
I would just never out anybody. I think everyone has to find it in their own way and their own time.
