Kudos to Ricky Martin
Yeah I know there will be tons of people mocking Ricky Martin, jokes about how long it took or that even Clay Aiken beat him to it...
But I am not one of them.
Until being gay doesn't deny you basic human rights like marriage, Until being gay doesn't mean you might risk losing family, Until being gay doesn't mean you might be the victim of hate crimes...Until some of these things change, coming out for some, can be a frightening thing.
It is easy for some, but can be difficult for others. We should not judge. I was late to the party myself.
Why are gay people the only population in the world who need to fucking 'come out' anyway. 'Coming out' is something we have turned into a pride thing, yet the fact we have to this to begin with it is part of the problem. It really...should not matter, isn't that the whole point of being who you are?
