Remember when credible reports of a person’s sexuality came from a person? Neither do I. As long as orientation is the subject of gossip blogs and sensationalized tabloids, it’ll be treated as some scandalous personality flaw.
While I sound cynical and am more than a little envious that certain people can hire someone to handle all of their problems, I sincerely think that a person should have every right to choose the manner and timing of their coming out. However, as much as it shouldn’t be a big deal anymore, here we are; mired in a world where a person has to has to tip toe around the pronouns of who they’re fucking lest they’re exposed like a nipple at the Super Bowl.
