Sue Bird’s girlfriend Megan Rapinoe is a professional women’s soccer player. She plays for a team called the Seattle Reign. Bird came out on July 20 because she felt it was the right timing. She also stated the she never kept her relationship with Megan secret. However, she added that she didn’t go public with it because she didn’t feel like it. She never felt her sexuality was a big deal or particularly interesting. Sue realized she was gay at UConn. I wonder if there was a girl there she fell in love with?
Anyway, Megan also runs a clothing line. Sue Bird’s girlfriend never appears on her social media and vice versa. That will probably change soon. However, Sue said she thinks people assume you hide something unless you talk about it. She disagrees with that. To me, it sounds like she values privacy. In regards to Megan’s clothing line- her company has a sweet website! They sell various shirts, sweatshirts, and hats. Megan loves to take pictures and make funny expressions for the modeling shots. She seems to have a very vibrant personality. I think she’s probably pretty funny.
Megan likes to think of herself in a broader sense outside of being a soccer player. Sue Bird’s girlfriend is described as an advocate for equality. Her official approach to life is “be kind, be authentic, and help other do the same”. That’s a sweet philosophy. Her twin sister Rachael is her business partner. They say their ultimate mission is to help people tap into their individuality. Megan also participates in soccer clinics at various places across the country. She seems like a cool person. Sue Bird, however, doesn’t feel passionately about being a public protector or defender of equality rights. Most people don’t. She also just likes to live her life the way she wants to live it.
