So let me get this straight....So far everyone is wishing this person luck and happiness, and blah, blah....bloody blah?!? Why? He is taking a step backward. When any of Us take a step backward it hurts all of Us.
Was it easy for you or I to come out publicly? No, it wasn't. Yet everyone of Us that do come out in all aspects of life further the cause of Gays everywhere. By taking this step back, (which may seem small to some), it cheapens all of the hardship and backlash that those of Us had to face by being who We are, being proud of who We are, and continuing to be out in all aspects of Our lives. This is bigger then one individual!!!
I know that there are many on here whom despise me. And I them. Yet I would be the first person in line to defend them if they were discriminated against or physically/verbally attacked for being Gay.
Isn't this the same person whom poured his bloody heart out on a thread about coming out to his family not too long ago? So he does that, which he claimed was the hardest thing in the world for him to do, yet now he's taking down his profile on a gay site because it will hurt him professionally?
Everyone is okay with someone taking a step back into the closet for professional reasons?!? We need people to be out in the workplace! We need people to be out in their personal lives. WE
need to be visible in every aspect of everyday ordinary life.
So I say good riddance. (I know, I know, many of you wish me gone from here too.) But I really can't say I wish him well......or Best of luck chap....or any of those things.
To the O.P.; You are doing yourself a grave injustice. And in turn, WE as a Gay community suffer for it.
I am sorry for you though. I'm sorry that you feel that being Gay is such a bloody impediment. I do hope that you find peace with who you are, and open up all parts of your life to all parts of you. Until you do that you are almost as bad as homophobe, no worse....a repuGlican!!
