And being gay isn't just something that happens in the bedroom. I'm a married straight man and anyone watching me and my wife out in public can tell we are a couple, even if we aren't into big PDAs. We hold hands, I place my hand around her waist sometime when we are standing in line, and when we go our separate ways during the day we give each other a quick kiss goodbye.
Gay celebrities should be able to have that same sort of freedom without being in fear of the media making a spectacle of it.
Hopefully a day will come when people truly don't give a damn about it. We aren't there yet, though it is certainly improving.
Oh you're sick and tired, boohoo. If you *really* don't care, then it shouldn't bother you, anymore than it does to see some guy and girl making out everywhere you turn (movies, ads, on the sidewalk etc). I bet you don't run to the internet to complain about that!
Heteros don't need to announce anything, because it's the assumed status. They just start deep throating right in my peripheral vision instead
That is a complete load of crap about gays being over-represented in pop culture. The very idea of marketing to 5% is insane. When's the last gay superhero or major character (not equivalent of the "token black") or gay theme in a summer blockbuster? Oh yeah, never! It's just reserved for low budget fare around oscar season, or stereotyped to all hell in sitcoms like "modern family."
I just think it's talked about way too much!!
I know that you and many others would prefer that gays remain invisible so you don't have to acknowledge them. Too bad. Get used to it. No one has an obligation to hide themselves so that you can be more comfortable in your bigotry.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
