 WHO PLAY ARE COMPLETELY OR PARTIALLY THE SITUATION IN U.S. SPORTS ISN’T SO GOLDEN.
  4. 4. 4 Andrew McIntosh thought about suicide so often as a college athlete that he had his own funeral played out in his head. Dying somehow seemed easier than telling his truth.
 “It was emotional chaos,” he tells USA TODAY Sports. “The perception, based on fear, tells you that coming out is worse than death.” This was in 2009, when McIntosh played lacrosse at Oneonta State in central New York. He remembers the day he heard a teammate utter a homophobic slur — that drill is so gay — that seemed all the more hurtful for its casual, offhand nature.
 Suddenly coach Dan Mahar stopped practice. He told his team, forcefully, that such language is unacceptable. It was a simple act that changed a life. And maybe saved one, too. "I was just doing my job," Mahar says.
  5. 5. 5 “The perception, based on fear, tells you that coming out is worse than death.”

  15. 15. 16 “My goal is very clear...which is that women run half our companies and countries and men run half our homes. As much as I wish that could happen in four years, I don't think that's a likely time period. But I think it can happen sooner than we think. Part of it is having that aspiration and that goal. I think we too often suffer from the tyranny of low expectations.”
