These days when you turn on your tv you see gay characters on many shows. It could be an official character of the show or it could be just for that moment because of a one time "gay-spin" episode. Like the 1st gay moment in tv I remember...a while back on the That 70s Show, when Eric's new guy friend unexpectedly gives him a
unwanted kiss. GAYS has always been on television just not as much as it is now. Even in some shows where viewers KNEW a character was gay, you NEVER really saw them indulge in their homosexuality though. Now-a-days producers and pilot writers are bold enough to put a few gay kisses in a episode, but what does this mean?...Kurt of Glee, Adrianna and Gia of 90210, the married couple w/ baby on Modern Family, Calvin from GRΣΣK, Kevin and Scotty of Brothers and Sisters ,and not mention LOGO , a channel catering to the GLBT community. A great amount of people think that so many gay characters in television means the world is becoming more accepting of us...Is THAT really true? Or is it the fact(which I think is the case) that gay is simply ENTERTAINING. Is it that producers KNOW that a gay storyline IS a attention grabber. It may NOT necessarily mean that the producers OR viewer are REALLY accepting of gays because they create/watch shows with those very people in it. To a viewer their mentality might be,"Gay is OK as long as its just TV." A producer just wants to bring rankings to the show and make that money. What you see is NOT people becoming more accepting of the GLBT community...NO, what you see is people profiting off of GayTV. An example I could use for that is CineMark, who donated to the YES on Prop 8 campaign, BUT did they NOT profit off of MILK, the movie about a openly gay elected official that they had playing in THEIR theater.
Homosexuality was here BEFORE it was "Cool" to be homophobic. In ancient times it was natural to participate in homosexual activities without a second thought. . There is even a guy in the history books by the name of Alexander the Great who had a male lover him self, as betrayed in the movie Troy. EVEN in The Hebrew Old Testament it obvious suggests King David had a lil fling with Jonathan. It is even said that older men would marry their young lover, of course this did not replace women/male relationship, but it was the norm. It has also proven that the church REGULARLY preformed male/male wedding ceremonies up until the 14th century. King James I in fact had male lovers who he basically "tricked off" on, lol. These so-called "people of the church" wouldn't want you to know THAT though.
The Homo to the Homophobic, I WAS HERE FIRST!!!!!!

Calling me a coward, liar , and a fake. You say, " The people who matter don't care and the people who care don't matter," you say, "I don't care what they think and say of me if they really love me they would accept me...that goes for friends and fam." I say THAT'S COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT. Losing friends is one thing but it IS hard to say "FUCK U" to fam even if THEY already have. Fact of the matter IS when people DON'T accept YOU it DOES hurt. Hearing the homophobic things people say DOES hurt. We as human beings weren't design to NOT CARE what people say...WHY? 'cause we DO have feelings. You say," I came Out, You Should too." Well EVERYBODY isn't YOU...we don't live the same life, know the same people, or live in the same environment. Those may be the aspects that will make my "coming out" more harder for me than it was for you.
Now I don't disagree getting it OFF your chest may feel much better, but for some its is no better for them coming out than it was for them to be in the closet. Some have been disowned by "friends" and "family," kick out of their homes, fired from jobs, harassed, beaten, and Yes EVEN KILLED. What would you Say at the grave site of those KILLED...that I'm PROUD of you for being true to self...get the Fuck outta here. Yes being true to self is good but on THIS subject it may come at a cost. For someone to come out they HAVE TO BE mentally, emotionally, and physically READY. I think that your coming out party shouldn't be solely driven by simply being tried of living a lie, YOU NEED TO BE READY as well. SOOOOOO, where DO YOU get off THINKING you have THE RIGHT to throw someone esle Out THEIR closet*smh* The WORST thing is people finding out about you before you have even learned to accept your damn self as Gay.
Why do you feel that why...why do you think its your business rather someone is In or Out of the closet. I'm sure in your wonderful time of being out you have experienced dire homophobia and it drives you crazy. So is it the fact you WANT me to go through what you go through...is this a "misery loves company" scenario. Why would I be eager for that. Now truth be told I DON'T NOT plan to be in the closet FOREVER, but I want to open that door and walk OUT on my own terms...I SHOULDN'T have to worry about these messy ass homos tryna EXPOSE me 'cause they are probably jealous that I don't have to experience any homophobia DIRECTLY towards me 'cause nobody KNOWS about me YET...until I am ready for them to know.
Now Can I Please Be in the Closet IN Peace.
