    Now, what does all this have to do with a silly B actress who decides to do her big announcement for publicity?
    You have zero evidence that this was just for "publicity."

    Hey, there's yet another in the long line of dishonest arguments from those who can't deal with the acceptance of homosexuality. "You support gay people's right to live openly; hence, you must be gay!!!1"

    It's easier for some people here to continue advocating for discrimination if it's not perceived as "normal."

    I don't think it was silly.... Facts are not silly.

    I'll say right now that homosexuality is a mental disease or a psychological manifestation from abuse...

    I wouldn't call homosexuality a birth defect - especially when homosexuals are generally no danger to society and can lead productive lives..

    Also, I think we all have a deformity or some sort or another - if we didn't we would be a perfect species.

    This is certainly an interesting topic but kinda goes off topic, but I would love to have a discussion some time on birth defects, because I find the topic interesting. Not from a medical standpoint but from a social standpoint (I suppose).

    yeah, it's right up there with "you don't like homosexuals, hence you must be secretly gay"
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Really, it's all about staying in the public eye with that career. There is absolutely no reason for her to make such a non-anouncement in front of the cameras if she wasn't after the publicity.

    You're not even on the right page here and are arguing something that has nothing to do with my response to CT on his original post. Go back and read. It was a silly retort to my debunking of his trying to attempt to label homosecual behavior as normal.

    How do you know this? Me myself don't pay any attention to pop culture because I have better things to read and spend my time on.

    Do I have to repeat, again, the context of her coming out? I've only posted it three ****ing times.

    She was at a conference, speaking to adults (mostly counselors) who work with LGBTQ youth. This was not some sort of press conference.

    I wasn't even trying to get involved in your debate. I just had a bit of .02 cents to add so I did...

    I'm giving you MY opinion/theory on birth defects - not my position or opinion on your little debate.
