Athletes do not compare

Dear Editor,
In reference to your May 9 editorial:
Have you not been paying attention to the movements across our great land,
for equal rights for all our citizens, no matter their choice of a life partner.
Comparing virginity to equal rights is to say the least naive.
Courage--yes, the Matthew Shepards of the world have courage.
What Jason Collins did in this atmosphere of bigotry and hate, did take courage.
The President did not rework his Wounded Warrior speech. I saw the statement
he made after a journalist asked him to comment. It was brief and to the point.
As for Mr. Tebow's virginity? I don't consider that national news, nor do I care. Thank you,
