|@Mario Ok, listen. I'm a bisexual guy. Knowing that, it may surprise you that I am SO sick of people talking about "coming out." Who cares? When is the last time a straight person came to you and said "Mario, you need to sit down, I have to tell you something. I'm hetero!" It's no-ones business but your own and your partners. If you choose to tell your family, that's okay by me, too, but by no means necessary. I'm just so sick of this coming out thing...Why would you want to subject yourself to the incredible amount of bias from homophobes? Seriously...what benefit do you get from it? I assume you'll say "If he's a celebrity, his coming out will encourage others to be comfortable with themselves." I hope you wouldn't say that, because that would be nonsense. Suppose Justin is gay, which I doubt, and "comes out." Some teeny-bopping talent-less passing fad saying they're gay is going to do one thing - encourage others to do the same. When those gay or bisexual people kill themselves because of bullying or are martyred by getting the Matt Shepherd treatment, who is going to be to blame? |
Gays, bi's, lesbians, stop this nonsense! Revealing your sexuality is not going to improve the world or reduce homophobia - it's going to make you a target. The only people I've shared my sexuality with are my partners (sexual or dating, since many women are inexplicably turned off by bi men - I want to be honest up front), the few friends I trust enough to not go around revealing my preferences (in case, for example, I want someone to be able to comment on a hot chick or a hot dude to, or go to a club with if they, too, are gay/bi/whatever), and my immediate family (so it's not a surprise if I come home with either gender one day). As for anyone else, no-one who isn't directly involved in my life needs to know. A celebrity publicly revealing their sexuality, that would be (and is, in cases where it's happened) totally foolish. They make themselves targets.
And, just so I have a relevant comment in here, my opinion is that he is probably not gay. It seems like a ridiculous and worthless amount of trouble to be seen with Whats-her-face if they didn't have some type of relationship going. He does have a nice sense of style, he's cute (not hot, not handsome, cute), so I guess, stereotypically, I see why some people assume he's homosexual. I'd say definitely not. Now, could he be bisexual? That I see as a FAR greater likelihood.
