    Which is tragic. And also completely unrelated to the issue at hand here.
    There is nothing "flimsy" about Sheppard and the evidence that points to the fact he was a drug dealer himself or was involved in the drug trade.

    Also, if these other cases mentioned are so tragic then why you focus all your attention on skin color and sexuality?

    What front-page, tear-filled interview?

    1. I highly doubt that Ellen Page's coming out made the front page of anything except maybe her hometown paper.

    2. There was no "interview." It was a speech at a convention for people who work with LGBTQ youth. It got picked up by the 24/7 news networks and obviously entertainment websites ... other than that, it barely registered a blip. Looking at CNN.com right now, it's well down on the home page and will very likely to get bumped completely off in the morning. It's not on the New York Times home page. It's not on MSNBC's. There hasn't been nearly the media presence that people have been claiming on this thread.

    Make assumptions? stereotype?

    I didn't invent the word or champion the idea of collectivism - a word many progressives enjoy using...

    Sure I stereotype - especially when it's your goal to be a collectivist nation and not a nation of individuals, a nation or brand where the theory is that the group defeats the individual.

    That's MY goal huh? Can you prove that assertion, or is that just another in your long, long, long list of assumptions?

    Who says I do? What I don't do is change the subject when skin color and/or sexuality are the thread topic, like you seem hellbent on doing. There's not much to comment about on DP regarding bullying of fat kids or smart kids. You're constructing a very badly made strawman here.

    I stand corrected. Thank you for clarifying.

    But, that said, I do still think that the media and public, in general, make too big of a deal of celebrities coming out. Granted, the amount of attention it garners is waning as it becomes more common, but it does still seem to grab a bigger piece of the news cycle that, in my own personal opinion, it warrants.

    Bloody hell, nobody in this thread is arguing for "collectivism." Are you really going to turn this into yet another one of your anti-"progressive" rants where you shriek at anyone you perceive as a "progressive" for disagreeing with you?

    I swear these guys are so full of fear about someone else and their sexuality. Unbelievable.

    Don't worry bigots, Ellen is not going to make you gay. Unless you already are, and are in terrified denial of it...LOL
