Gay is not "bad," but there is a lot of negative connotations to gay SUBCULTURE stuff, particularly the bar "scene" and the Craiglist hookup posts. I don't think some stars want to be affiliated "gay" because they have their own notions of sexuality that are not defined by gay.[quote]I don't think some stars want to be affiliated "gay" because they have their own notions of sexuality that are not defined by gay. Oh my god, straight is pure, straight is good, straight hot, straight is masculine, straight is acceptable, straight is perfection, straight is normal, straight is power, straight is what I am desperate to be!! They just don't want to have to always BE the "poster child" for "I'm a cool guy who does not have asshole pics on Craiglist" kind of person. Some celebrities really don't want to be a part of the bullshit aspect of all of it and didn't sign on to carry the torch, as it were. Not the people who are upfront as to who they really are. It's not as if people here are nice to straight or especially closeted celebs...Of course, the world NEEDS more people like that to be "out there." Men with integrity, morals, character, intellect, self esteem and a sense of humor. But they are eviscerated by posters here who think that they should all be OUT OUT OUT. If anything an out gay always has someone defending him (yeah, him, not sure the same is true for lesbians).r70, unclench and drop those pearls.
people are living their lives openly in their private time but not making an announcement to the world like most of us....It is lying and insulting when someone like Colton Haynes or Matt Lanter says they are straight and beards up with a girlfriend when there are photos of them online engaging in kissing and online sex talk with men. If someone asked me if I was gay I would say yes R20, if someone asked Matt Bomer that would get a nonanswer That is the difference between being out in the being in the closet, even if it is the glass closet.When you're a public figure, a public announcement or acknowledgement of your same sex partner/attraction is necessary for you to be considered out.That is why even sites like Wikipedia will not list Jodie Foster as gay or in the LGBT actors section because she has never said those words.No, r102, the media are not allowed to brand someone gay (just at most make reference to rumors) until that person utters the words, if they want to saty in business.
