After the WBCA’s *crickets* in response to the Indiana ridiculousness, they channel their inner Caspar Milquetoast.
Statement by WBCA Executive Director Danielle M. Donehew:
“Women’s basketball is wonderfully diverse and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association is committed to the inclusion of everyone who wishes to be a part of our community – whether they play, coach, officiate, work in, or are a fan of the sport.
“We are monitoring the political developments in Indiana as we hold an exciting 2015 WBCA Convention in Tampa, and will remain in constant contact with our partners at the NCAA as we plan for the 2016 WBCA Convention which is scheduled to be held in Indianapolis.”
Statement by the WBCA Executive Committee:
“The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association supports an inclusive culture. We celebrate the diversity of our membership, the entire women’s basketball community and society as a whole, and we oppose discrimination in any form. “
First – the Convention in Tampa and the idiocy in Indiana are two separate things. Don’t mix your events.
Second – The statement, such as it is, reads as if they don’t want to acknowledge that women’s basketball’s diversity includes a huge gay population who could be adversely affected by this so called “religious freedom” bill.
Oh. I get it.
