Yep. That doesn't mean he doesn't get what he deserves.

Seems like a political topic, nevertheless I wonder why people feel the need
to label themselves in the first place? I guess it fits into some need.
Aren't people simply 'sexual'? Even guys and gals that proclaim to be
homosexual on occasion drift to the other side if they find a person really
attractive. Anne Heche springs to mind.

Didn't know Ricky Martin was a politician. 😛

Sexuality, like love, is best decided by the individual.

Re: What?!?!?!? He's Gay?

My thoughts were just that everyone I knew (and the late night comics
agreed) that this was not news. Since he came out on his own I'd say he's
comfortable with discussion (which would be different than say, a politician
who lied about his sexuality and then got found out. That's hypocrisy AND
political, while this is neither, IMO).

I suspect that there are gay male musicians who are adored by female fans
who hide their sexuality because the money and fame would be lost if they
were open about it. They have been labeled as a sex object and benefit from
the label, right?

As far as Heche goes, I'd say she is most likely not actually gay...maybe
bisexual?

Re: What?!?!?!? He's Gay?

I didn't "want" to believe that either when I was a kid. Of course, "gay"
was much more of a pejorative then, even used as a one size-fits-all
pejorative that had little to do with orientation.

Re: What?!?!?!? He's Gay?

Most female fans don't care if they're out...that just increases the
challenge. 🙂 Personally, I don't care. As long as they produce fun
music that I like and are honest, I'll buy their stuff.

Re: What?!?!?!? He's Gay?

How sad is it that people have to "come out" when they are gay. Here's
a political statement.

This world is so screwed up.

The media cares, and that's all that matters. "We" no longer count.

And this is why I have chosen to turn of the TV and ignore the media. On
the plus side I get a lot more stuff done. 😄 Planning a retaining wall
and a new patio. 😄
