    Does he even NEED to really come out?
    He doesn't need to acknowledge it, it's quite redundant.

    Oh my! The most obvious non-surprise since Santa was exposed as a myth.

    And this gossip column bullshit is being quoted why?

    I think its certainly time. By coming out, he moves the envelope in the right direction... by doing as he has, he hides it.

    Itt's certainly his life, but so many people know, it would be helpful if he acknowledged it.

    At that age (not that he's old), I think he owes it to himself to come out and really be happy and not have to 'hide' anymore. Then again, we don't even know if he really is gay!

    P.S I think he is freaking gorgeous and would give a limb for a night with him. icon_neutral.gif

    I have to admit it though. I really like, no I LOVE, Asian style fried rice. I have ever since I was a kid and our Mom would take us to get Chinese food after church. I know what you're thinking, "It's 2011, no one cares that you like fried rice." but that's because you've never had to live with it. I used to be ashamed, but not anymore!

    I. Love. Fried. Rice.







    (As in, what's the big deal? Is what I'd like to believe was the case, anyway. )

    Why do you care? Why does any one care? By him coming out will it do anything for you financially? Will you get a promotion, a new house or win a bet?

    The good word has it that he is a regular at the Dave Barton Gym (powerwords: You Cruise, You Lose) in Chelsea in NYC. ;)

    Pehaps an important, erudite, well-spoken, contemporary media figure who has continually displayed a strong sense of personal and professional integrity making a major statement will have even MORE impact on the world around us than personal financial gain, promotion, new house or winning of a bet with a friend at a bar. Not that THOSE things aren't terribly important.

    Sometimes, tuffguy, there are bigger more important things at work in the world around you than what even YOU are able to see within the confines of your personal comfort zone.

    I ran into him and his BF putting their gear on their bikes to leave right outside of that gym, I think it was on 27th or 24th or something. I looked at the pic.. that's the guy he was with.. great looking couple!

    I care because all the hysterical queens at sites like Towleroad will finally shut the fuck up about it... well, until they find some other non-issue to bitch about.

    I hope so. People Magazine hasn't had a good cover story in quite awhile.

    We gays are judging his alleged official coming out in rather cynical terms here. But we aren't the whole picture. There's the rest of straight America to consider.

    Much as we may turn up our noses at his announcement, I think it could benefit all of us in the long run. The more that all of Americans come to accept gays in every aspect of society, especially the prominent, well-known and influential personalities, the better for us overall.

    Agreed 100%. Good point. The more 'mainstream' we are, the more accepted we will become.

    For those who don't know, the new CEO of Apple is a gay guy. I think that's awesome, he's the most powerful man in the world (in terms of business of course icon_wink.gif )

    Is that his boy on the left??? YOWZA!! And Anderson's pretty damn ripped himself! icon_eek.gif Good for him! Not that I think he HAS to do it, but I think he'd be a great role model and a positive example for the queer boys!

    I think it'd be good if he came out. He's a well respected journalist. Whenever someone famous comes out and is known for their work and not just for being gay, I think it helps people realize that gay people are just like everyone else.

    He needs to! Then many I can throw it in my mom's face that more and more of the people she respects for their professional talents are gay and that they can lead fullfiling lives... she's getting better at accepting things but I need more ammo! icon_twisted.gif

    Doesn't everyone know already? It's hard to say whether this will have any meaningful impact or whether it will just be a blip on the gossip pages.

    He's also apparently a huge asshole... a huge RICH asshole so I might be willing to overlook that.
