Megan Rapinoe Needs Only One Perfect, Empowering Word To Describe Herself

"GAAAAY."

Megan Rapinoe joined SportsCenter on Thursday to discuss all things Women's World Cup. At one point, the midfielder for the Women's National Team was given a simple but difficult task: define yourself in one word. And, well, she seized the opportunity. 

 

Rapinoe is a proud and openly gay woman and a former recipient of the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center's Board of Directors Award. She's also just one of the many openly gay athletes who participated in the Women's World Cup this year -- one area where their male peers are still lagging far, far behind.
