Ellen Page is gay

Well, that's interesting.

http://gawker.com/ellen-page-comes-o...ium=socialflow

Actress Ellen Page publicly came out as gay Friday evening, while giving a speech at Time to THRIVE, a national LGBTQ youth conference held in Las Vegas.

"I'm here today because I am gay," Page told the assembled crowd, which responded with a standing ovation and a long chorus of cheers.

"Whoo!" said Page, before continuing:

Quote:

"And because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.

I also do it selfishly because I'm tired of hiding and I'm tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today with all of you on the other side of that pain."
Page is most famous for becoming pregnant by her awkward classmate Michael Cera, and for invading the dreams of a stranger alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, neither of which happened in real life, because she is an actress.

After her speech, the Human Rights Campaign, which organized the conference, congratulated Page on the front page of its website for "her brave decision to live openly and authentically."

That takes a whole lot of mental strength and therapy to be proud of who you are when you are gay. To be proud is quite the accomplishment because the gays I know, have a lot of internal homophobia and addiction problems. Like drinking to kill the pain of not being "normal", and in the end, they kill themselves.

Maybe they say it out loud, so young gays can grow up Ina different environment, and hopefully become proud of who they are sooner than the old generation.
People get told all of those things throughout life for all sorts of reasons.

Seriously. Cry in another bowl of milk about it.

Everyone has hardships and struggled for different reasons. People coming out shouldn't be celebrated as some form of courage or triumph. Great, you like someone of the same sex to sleep with.

Big ****ing deal.

Graduating from Harvard? Sure, that's an accomplishment.

Winning a playoff game? Yes.

Getting a promotion at work.
Getting into Harvard is the key. Graduating is a mere formality afterwards.

You can't fight biology. Everyone is unequal to some degree or another. For example, I can't dance worth shit.

Don't engage Donger on this matter.

It's a never ending troll job. And a dull one at that.

Then that is what they should say.

As far as "equality" goes, I'm not sure what sexuality has to do with that, any more than race or gender. People are more than walking genitalia.
So if a guy was suffering from micro penis and comes out about it, everyone should talk about what a hero he is?

Nonsense. Just nonsense.

I'm not necessarily proud that I'm straight, but I was really proud the first time I got a chance to prove it.

If I'd said anything like that, I might understand this comment.

But it's you, so...yep...nonsense.

It's always a great day when we can be shamed for not vigorously defending someone's decision to tell the world that they live a deviant lifestyle. Now, let's go verbally beat the shit out of anyone who's not 100% behind necrophilia!
