    He had me worried for a second there...

    Congrats to his band mates announcing their heterosexuality, though. It's a bit step, and I'm sure they were worried... but I think they'll be just fine.

    That vid really shows the notion of the "straight until proven queer" ideology that dominates our culture, not to mention the double standard that exists for people in the public eye when it comes to their sexuality.

    Very funny but poignant as well.

    Imagine if straight people had to answer questions like, "So when did you suspect you might be Hetero?"

    Bleh, I always thought REM had a bit of gay in it somewhere...

    Now I shall turn my gaydar unto another band: Coldplay. icon_twisted.gif
