I agree I couldn't care less if someone is gay or straight.

I thought Dennis Rodman was the first openly gay player in a major American sport. This guy's life is none of my business but I don't see any reason for such announcements.

He put another tweet about "Not hating, just don't understand."

Then deleted both. His names trending in Pgh already though

i guess his follow up tweet is technically accurate. a lack of understanding is the main takeaway there.

TV is telling you its important to think being gay is special and different, as if people haven't been gay for thousands of years. :roll:

Not a big deal that he's gay. It is a big deal that he felt comfortable enough to come out and can maybe make others feel more comfortable as well.

lol well put

There is a movement in the media to bring all this gay stuff out. I mean, on one hand I understand gays want and need to feel accepted, but hopefully this 'push' won't be so noticeable in a few years.
