    No, you're right. "Coming out" in any fashion merely means that if they come out as someone who you do not like, they will react negatively or dismissively. If you like what they come out as, you may tend to talk about how great it is and how great they are.

    Well played, especially if they haven't seen the film!

    Yeah, keep thinking that's what you did, not the reality of your classic trolling and name calling. What little ol' you? Nah, you didn't do that. Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

    Glad she came out. Everyone who does makes it a little easier for those remaining in the closet.

    While I'm upset at losing a candidate for second marriage (should it come to that).

    The idea of her with another woman is... well... rather a pleasant thought.

    Lets be honest here, I said "right-wing douchebags" and it flipped a switch in your head and you said "wait that's me!... how dare he!". If you affiliate ideologically with people who discriminate and spew hatred against gays then expect to get some poo flung back at you. If you can't take it, don't dish it out or affiliate with those that do.

    Is it an accident that every single person on this forum that has a problem with gays or blacks is right-wing? Hence "right-wing douchebags".

    You should know exactly what I'm talking about so don't play the victim card as though I'm attacking every single person who is right-wing. There are plenty on this forum who are right-wing whether libertarian or conservative who don't feel the need to disparage gays or blacks. Some even come in and say a few kind words.

The range allowed men in Hollywood with regard to their physical attractiveness is vastly different then what women are allowed. So I don't blame Hollywood, I blame the consumer.
    Oh please, everything that is going for Chris Hemsworth now went for Brad Pitt twenty years ago. The difference between the two men is absolutely nil. Sure some women might find one or the other more attractive, but both men were made stars for the exact same reason and for the exact same characteristics. Leading women that depend on their attractiveness are almost always able to do so because of the same reasons and for the same characteristics. There is no real difference between how men or women are treated in this regard. Some men are able to lead because of their presence, others for their acting ability, and others because of their looks and the same applies to women. Ellen Page has none of these things and therefore most likely will never be a leading woman.

    For some people that may be true. When Melissa Joan Hart came out as conservative in a liberal world I don't remember myself or anyone else attacking her on this forum. Perhaps it happened and I missed it...

    As the saying goes, you've now "removed all doubt". Should have remained silent. But, my bet is you will continue proving my point.
