    I get why celebrities do it. They want to control the timing and method of information release. If the paparazzi is the one to release the info you can bet they will do so in the most salacious way possible.

    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

    The gay population is disproportionately represented in the entertainment community. Do you think straight actors announce they are gay in order to bring attention to the actor thus bringing attention to their new movie/new album? I bet Miley Cyrus will become gay once her popularity wanes. Then again. That idea probably belongs in the Conspiracy Theory forum.

    Yeah and there are still certain public figures i strongly suspect are gay, who could come out and help young people who idolize them, but they're afraid of losing endorsements or being cut from a sports team or whatever.

    Uh she doesn't have to announce anything. Talk about false equivalence. One is automatically accepted and assumed and it would do nothing to bring attention to their new album or movie, where they're proclaiming their endless love for the opposite sex.

    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 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.

People don't want to throw their religion in the garbage yet.

    The gays are doing fine. The Christians are the ones struggling. Eventually Christianity in America will die on this one issue. Our society has advanced past Christianity. It is no longer relevant to the morals of our day. That is hard for many people to accept. Once Christianity dies then we will hear little discussion about this. That's still many generations away.
    I'd hope that Judaism, Islam, and Hinduism can go the same way. Probably Buddhism, too.

    I don't think they are disproportionately represented. Do you have any numbers to back that up? More of them may be out of the closet, in part probably because it is harder to keep secrets when you are under a media microscope. There is also less stigma in being gay in certain genres of entertainment. It is still pretty stigmatized in sports and country music, though.
