    Actress Ellen Page: "I am gay"[W:1222]

    Hollywood actress Ellen Page, known for her role in the movie "Juno," announced she is gay, in a very public way.Page broke the news during an emotional speech Friday in a crowded conference hall in Las Vegas, her publicist confirmed to CNN.
    "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," Page told the crowd. "I suffered for years, because I was scared to be out."
    Seriously, watch the speech, it will bring tears to your eyes. So happy and proud of her. You can tell she was very nervous and this meant a lot to her.

    of all the things wrong in the world, it's good that public opinion on this one issue is moving in the right direction more quickly than i expected. i can only imagine how hard it would have been to be gay in the 50s, or even in the 70s.

    Having said that if you look at Home Decor and clothing trends from the 70's you would have thought everyone was a straight as a protractor.

    really? the top tax rate from 1954 to 1963 was 91 percent.

    some of the cars were cooler, but that's about it.

    This thing is growing and growing all the time, and sooner or later the world is going to have to sit up and take notice and accept it.

    Hell, just ten years ago was practically a different world. I'm watching The Shield now, a cop show that came out in 2003 or 2004. In the first season the hero has blackmailed a fellow cop from reporting him to internal affairs for stealing drugs during a major bust. The rookie was gay and very much still in the closet, but the show's hero found out and threatened to expose him for being gay and destroy his career if he didn't retract his story. This is the show's hero, mind you.

    And for a real eye opener, check out Eddie Murphy's standup material from the 80s.

    During that era good cars and gays were seldom seen, thus the term, "Good old days."
