[Seimone Augustus] calls the perception that the WNBA caters primarily to lesbians "baloney.""It's just hard to deal with at times because that's all people talk about, not really the quality of basketball in this league and how we've grown," Augustus said. "But when you go on blogs they talk about how masculine you look or how aggressive you look." "I've never seen a basketball player that looks like a beauty pageant winner. We go out here, we work hard, we sweat, we have our hair all over. It's a very physical sport. We have to have a certain body type in order to play this game."

This snippet is part of an AP article (link is from ESPN) is part of a piece on her opposition to a proposed Minnesota law to ban same sex marriage. Augustus plans to marry her long time girlfriend LaTaya Varner next year. And to add a point on Seimone basically saying that the WNBA doesn't cater primarily to lesbians, I agree. If a WNBA team shows a good on court product, then more people will rally behind that team, regardless of who they are.
