    I really don't care to know the sexual proclivities of anyone.

    I really couldn't say what good this did for Ellen Page personally -- only she can know that. More practically, it's good because with every person who comes out it becomes more apparent that gays are painfully...boringly...normal.

    I don't blame her for announcing this, I guess she wanted to get it out somehow. It's hard for her to do it without looking like a self-important jerk. Either that or don't say anything. There really is no in-between. With the media overload that we have, it's going to be a headline somewhere, and many people like me will sit there and say, "Jeez, not this crap again." But, it is what it is.

Silly me.
    I haven't read the whole study, just the summery of it on Wikipedia and another site. I however have a question. She points to there being no developmental issues or other psychological issues as proof. However, the same test results could also "prove" that depression, sociopathy and others, are also not mental issues by her standards. The lack of additional issues does not prove or disprove whether something is a mental disorder.

    Let me be clear on this much. Animals cannot consent to sex. Children cannot consent to sex. I am ordered enough to understand something that simple.
    So you are saying it is normal for a person to be sexually attracted to children, animals, inanimate objects, whatever, as long as who/what is desired is able to consent? The ability to consent determines normality? Rather a strange idea to me.

    Actress Ellen Page: "I am gay" - CNN.com

    Wow, I am so proud of her, she joins three percent of the population and gets touted as a heroine. Why don't you people just STFU and stop flaunting your sexual activity? This is unbelievable and no wonder it is a polarizing issue. Keep your sexual activity to yourself. I am so sick and tired of this issue and people who "come out" being treated as someone special. With all the problems facing this country some people have interesting priorities and a different definition of what is important and worthy of hero status. You people are something else

    I think I used the words "To Me" and "I" often enough. I never assume anyone's sexual orientation anymore. So FOR ME, it's equivalent. For the person coming out, it's different of course.

    I'm not disagreeing with you. But my comments were my personal perception of one's sexual orientation and indication thereof. It had nothing to do with anyone elses or the perception or feelings of the person coming out.
