    I have never figured out why people have to have some big dramatic coming out. The same people who have to pronounce to the world they are gay are usually the same ones who say crap like "it is none of your business who I sleep with". As long as they can give legal consent and don't share your DNA, I don't care who you sit in a tree with K-I-S-S-I-N-G.

    Thought this might be a thread on Harry Reid.

    Because de facto sexual orientation has been perceived as heterosexual rather than bisexual or homosexual, and it was strongly in the interests of the politician to not say anything contrary to heterosexual imagery.

    He was silent when they voted in the one man one women marriage definition and so he decided the time was right for him to come out when debating to end the definition. I don't see any problem with him being gay - unless he's currently married. Of course folks in the state must have known something like this was true. He has a daughter, he highlights that and his relationship with her on his campaign site and materials. But he's silent on where that daughter came from.

    I agree, but unless you've been lying about it and trying to deceive the public, there's no need to ever speak publicly about it - in my youth it would have been a big deal, but now, who cares.

    The one benefit of announcing is you likely won't find this guy doing the footsie in the mens' room - he can now have his affairs like all the other politicians.
