A WNBA star broke ranks with the league to expose the pervasive culture of homosexuality in the women’s sport. It’s an open secret that 98 percent of WNBA players are lesbians or bisexuals — although the league vigorously denies the statistic.
Candice Wiggins, who was the 3rd pick in the 2008 WNBA draft, says the league is dominated by lesbians who apply their own set of rules.
In an interview with the San Diego Tribune, Wiggins described a “very, very harmful” lesbian culture running throughout the WNBA. Wiggins said she was bullied by the aggressive lesbian players in the league.
She said the constant harassment led her to retire early from the WNBA in 2015. Wiggins said the level of bullying and the “toxic” lesbian culture broke her spirit.
“It wasn’t like my dreams came true in the WNBA. It was quite the opposite,” Wiggins told the San Diego Tribune.
She said the lesbian players who dominate the league were intimidated by her heterosexuality and her refusal to be recruited into their gay lifestyle.
“Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Wiggins said. “I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules they [the other players] could apply.”
Wiggins was dismayed by a culture that encouraged athletic females to look and act like men.
