    Well i’m of a different opinion on some issue’s about coming out.
    What is coming out?
    why do we do it?
    To me I can’t come out because I Ain’t doing anything wrong, I love boys and not girls.
    Do the other people come out also?
    Do they have closet about their sexuality.
    they smear it on your face and pretend they can’t hurt a fly.
    I don’t go about letting people know about my private, likewise I don’t give them opportunities to come give me about sex because I Always have an A in Kamasutra haven’t Read the book though.

    I don’t believe in coming out, just live your life and please yourself and your partner.

      Coming out is not about admitting that you’re not doing anything wrong. I don’t know where you’re getting that idea from. Your entire comment twists the concept of coming out.

      Its an ownership of truth. Being gay is a life that’s generally cloaked with lies, hidden, shrouded, stifled. Shut in.
      Coming out is a term that appropriately refers to a reversal of that kind of life. Please do not turn it into something negative to cover the fact that you might have insecurities about people seeing you as a gay man. Coming out isn’t a negative thing. Negatizing it would be diminishing the sense of freedom people feel when they own their truth to themselves and to the people that matter to them.

        I never said anything about negativity and some IH stuff, I asked questions which you tried answering or in your own word Gave your valid responses which I won’t dispute.

        But in trying to assist or answer questions don’t assume things, if you ain’t comfy with anything ask questions.
        Thanks

        Oga, why so defensive? I didn’t mention IH. You did. (I wasn’t even thinking it, but clearly you were).

        And yes, your comment was casting a negative light on coming out. This isn’t about my comfort. Its about your apparent aversion to something you don’t understand.

        Madam,
        I rarely get defensive, very fluid personality I’ve and quite unapologetic about it.
        Thanks anyways. 😊

      You say you don’t believe in coming out. Could this be perhaps because you don’t understand what it means?

      Looking in from outside, it took me a while to understand it too and I to my understanding I think coming out is about owning your truth and being unapologetic about who you are.

      Public coming out is what I’m beginning to have a problem with. That whole call a press conference and announce it when you could just casually let it slip during an interview, that your boyfriend of 5 years is amazing and simply move on to other matters

        You can’t have a problem with the way different people choose to come out. Whether a public announcement or just quietly telling loved ones, you can’t judge the path a person has taken to owning his truth.

        Besides, its celebrities who come out publicly. And there’s a reason for that: to set an example, to let the gay people who look up to them know that its alright to be different.

        Well you could tell people it’s okay to be who they are without making it into a road show. At some point the whole thing just comes off as though you’re all about being gay and nothing else. That’s why I like the likes of Luke Evans and co. He’s out and still I don’t even think gay when I see him on the screen.

        Ricky as in Ricky Martin? don’t know about his coming out. Never heard of it. Just know that one second he was straight and the next, I heard he was out.
        But I feel like the pomp surrounding Caitlyn’s coming out became the catalyst that pushed transgender issues so rapidly forward. Before her, there wasn’t a lot of conversation surrounding the trans community. So it served a good purpose.
        My point is: ultimately there’s no coming out that is bad or problematic. Whether quiet or loud, it is about truth getting told.
        And what’s that they say about the truth setting one free…?

    i thought Blake was already out? there was an episode where a gay man was killed in certain country, during their meeting with the secretary, she gave Blake this “knowing” look when the killing of the gay man came up. am I the only one that noticed this?
    i was shocked when he came out, because I thought he was already out.
