    (Not a Dry Eye on RealJock)

    Are you kidding? These two fame whores are using the sympathy plea we get for "coming out" because apparently it's so hard, they already knew how their Dad would react. And instead of keeping it something personal and honest they just turned it into a grab for a attention. Like get fucked. Some people actually struggle with this, some people aren't actually accepted. These fuckers are using their sexuality to get further in life.

    I kinda agree, though of 2 minds. My military side says you just do it, without the drama. Done sensitively, but no theatrics. Even record it if you want, to remember the moment. But post in on YouTube?

    At the same time, it obviously meant a lot to them, and that's understandable. And, well, they're not emotionless military and not me. I think it's heartfelt & genuine.

    But I still question plastering it all over the universe on YouTube. Is nothing private & personal anymore?

    Yeah, I'm gonna have to file this under "looking for attention". I just feel like coming out to your parents is something that should be done face-to-face (it doesn't have to be a big drama), let alone recording the entire conversation and posting it online for the world to see.

    Not a dry eye on Realjock? Hardly.

    I don't weep for these attention whores, but I do weep for those of you who feel that it's acceptable to publicize this type of thing.

    Yea, well, when I was on a bus back to NYC on 9/13 after spending 9/12 in a hotel and catching a midnight buss on 9/13, we stopped in one city where people were heartless about 9/11.

    And you wonder why people don't want some men around children? Some of them are heartless with their emotions blind not only human feelings but also gross wrongs.

    Blame the victims of sorrow: they just want attention.

    This deserves attention: while some Muslims are torturing and killing gays, while there is homophobia in the caste of U.S. Leadership (Methodists will not even allow a self-avowed homosexual in a position of Christian leadership), the twins are saying there is more diversity in the population of good people than just breeders. Society, cater to us, too.

    Besides, it's like a fork in the road where your dad is on the heterosexual side and the sons have chosen the road not chosen by his father. The distance, the separation has some essential sadness.

    There was no camera when I came out to my wife, from whom I was already separated. I had taken her into my college apartment out of charity, along with our 2 school-age sons, when she lost yet another job and was homeless.

    She promptly informed the police I was gay, who got a search warrant for child pornography. Based on the assumption that all gays are pedophiles, which the judge who issued the warrant agreed.

    So she cleared out one morning, unknown to me after I went off to my college classes, working on a certification to teach high school. I returned around 1 PM and shortly found an armed 8-man SWAT team banging on my door.

    They searched my entire house until 5 PM, and took all my computers, printer, all storage media, including a laptop the university had issued me, that I needed for my classes. This was September, the beginning of the semester.

    Thereafter I had to do all my classwork on a library computer, intended only for researching their catalog. I still got straight "A"s, a 4.0, for all my courses that term.

    All my computer stuff was returned to me in late January, by a State officer. After the State forensics lab had examined it all, and failed to find any kiddie porn on it. Because there never was any.

    Therefore I hate my ex-wife, for subjecting me to that ordeal. And I hate State courts that automatically assume that because I'm called gay, I'm a pedophile. They do exist, at least in North Dakota. So coming out has its risks.

    Thanks. But I didn't post this for sympathy. But as an example of what can happen.

    I can survive anything, and have.

    My real personal tragedy is that I have become emotionally scared, numb, from too many of these. I survive, but I'm devoid of emotion. I simply can't feel much anymore.

    And that's the biggest problem I have with my husband. I shower him with gifts, but I'm not sure I can shower him with love. icon_sad.gif

    While I agree that these two guys are only doing it for the self-promotion value, I'm glad people are posting videos of coming out to their parents. I believe the first one to go viral was the U. S. Army guy stationed in Germany who came out to his dad by phone on the day Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed. It was a very genuine moment.

    I think seeing these videos helps an awful lot of kids come out to their own families. They hear what the guys say to their parents, they see how the parents react (usually quite positively), and they can begin to form their own coming-out speech.

    Just a couple weeks ago I traded emails with a young guy here on RJ who was wondering how to come out to his parents. I suggested he watch a few of these videos. He admitted he was already doing that.

    I know a lot of people say this type of video is more so for attention than good ... but there is some good in this. I used to watch a lot of these coming out videos on youtube. Though typically just the ones people describing their story vs. putting a family member on the spot.

    Either way, even if the video helps some young kid out. I don't find it all that bad.

    I used to watch a lot of coming out videos,and it really helps... Esp. In a homophobic country like mine. I don't think there is one coming out video from India. Anywho, fame whores or not, they made an effort, made it public. That way, they don't have to tell everyone personally.

    basically..... i said this shit and a well known rj member, mr. cash, had a hissy fit about it. icon_lol.gif


    Where exactly was THAT pazzy?


    While this isn't My personal style and not the way I did it - 32 years ago - I don't really understand why there is so much anger toward theses kids. This the way THEY chose to do it.

    I have a feeling it probably did more good than harm. And if they got a few YouTube hits so what. If it hits one kid in just the right way, mission accomplished.
