Why do we have to be "supportive" because she was a lesbian? Straight people never say "We should be supportive of our own" when a regular show gets cancelled.
In fairness, I think Rosie "fought" for the right things and defended the right people. But the way she went about it, on top of her delivery, didn't endear herself to many. She just came off as loud, bitter, and angry alot of times...then she would come off as a total emotional wuss. So, in some ways, I think that made people uncomfortable with her as a person. To me, it came off as unstable many times.
