    If someone's sexual preference is...well...me, then yes, I'm interested. Otherwise, no. That said, I do understand why some celebs do make an issue of their sexuality.

    1.) "I" personally do not care as in theres no judgment one way or another
    2.) but as for society the answer unfortunately is still obviously yes, many people still do care and will hypocritically judge a person on that alone and in parts of the country you can still have you rights violated and be grossly legally discriminated against
    3.) lastly on the "social" front, it still matters because of #2

    until #2 waters down as far as bigotry against women/minorities does it will people will still care and people will come out and announce what they are.
    or at least till equal rights is also national for them. Its also good when people come out for role models to promote equal rights and to suppress fear of hate.

    again, while "i" personally dont care society still does sadly

    I think that happens as a way of showing, like, "It's ok to be gay, see? This famous person is".

    I really don't care what consenting adults do behind closed bedroom doors. It's a private matter, and it probably should stay private, which also means that the paparazzi shouldn't be digging into it and publishing it either.

    I must figure that the Celbutards from Hollyweird are so narcissistic that they believe the entire universe centers around them, and their sexual preferences. What up idiots! It's not.

    That is a bit of an oversimplification. In my line of work it would be bad if my sexual preference was known but I get asked all the time if I am in a relationship or seeing someone. I wish I could be honest about my partner who I have been with for four years, but I tend to lie to those who ask and tell myself it isn't anyone else's business anyway. C'est la vie.

    To answer the original question: Yes, people care about the sexual preferences of others. Some people care so much that they've made it their life's mission to oppose certain sexual preferences.

    It's not about whether or not you care, but their freedom to do so. People - usually straight people - like to declare that gays are now equal and they should just shut up about it already. Well actually, no. They may have more legal freedoms but they still face prejudice daily, just like how black people still experience racism even though slavery and segregation laws ended decades ago.

    People's sexualities have to be an issue before they're a non-issue. You may be over it, but there are still hate groups and evangelicals who make it their mission every day to make sure anyone who doesn't fit the traditional sexual model get oppressed.

    Publication of people's sexualities is still activism, unfortunately, because of the status of the debate, even if all the person is doing is showing up somewhere non-chalantly with their same-sex partner. It still matters to a lot of people on both sides of the discussion. Every high profile person who comes out or has their sexuality discussed is creating more positive discourse to shift the social fabric away from discrimination and bigotry.

    I also question if you're really over it. A lot of people say they're fine with gays but if they see same-sex couples showing affection or intimacy, they cringe. Tolerance is not the same as acceptance.

    I voted "Other" simply because of the word "anymore" in the poll question.

    I never cared about anyone's sexual preferences with the exception of my husband's. What consenting adults do in the bedroom isn't my business, never was, never will be.

    That is a goddamn shame. It really irks me when I see this. My husband's boss has the same problem at work. Only my husband knows he's gay (and married). It's disgusting that people judge and you're forced to lie. I hope this changes for you & your loved one.

    Sadly there are still tortured gay teenagers growing up in hellhole backwaters with no easy way of meeting other gay people and with no positive rôle models around them, often being told by small town mentality and church that people like them are evil, unnatural and other such rubbish. Hence openly gay public figures can be an immense comfort, support and send out positive messages.

    No, we shouldn't give a damn about anybody's sexual preference, but sadly many people still do (witness the anti SSM cries on this forum, to name but one example of hostility), hence some gay people feel obliged to make an issue of their sexuality in the fight for justice and equality. That, I can understand.
