Outsports reviews reactions on Runners World to story of out college runner

From Outsports:

The Associated Press ran a detailed feature on gays in sports, with the focus on Eastern Michigan runner Austin Hendrix. I had spoken to the writer, Nancy Armour, and she had found Austin’s terrific coming out story on Outsports that ran in December. His journey was used in the AP story to illustrate the struggles faced by gay athletes and it was great that it ran on websites nationwide, including Austin’s hometown paper in Ohio.

Runner’s World, on its Facebook page, ran a link to Austin’s story and it sparked a debate that has been so common on mainstream websites when dealing with gay issues, and one we sometimes overlook since it seldom occurs on gay-themed sites. Most of the comments supported Runner’s World linking to the story, but there were a fair number of naysayers who, as always, missed the point.
