Tyler Perry has allegedly let his close friends know he's gay, after announcing at his birthday party that he'll become a dad. I dunno if I believe he would do it this way. We'll see.

Julianne Hough casually mentioned on TV that DWTS competitor Jonathan Bennett is gay, in the context of an anecdote about how he once tweeted her a compliment on her butt.
This will, of course, lead to the usual reality-ignoring arguments that people shouldn't care who's gay, shouldn't say anyone's gay if they're not out, and that it counts that he's out because some blogs have said so and he is living his life as a gay man.
In fact, Bennett is not openly gay. He is not out. But Hough rather innocently outed him, because he's glass-closeted at best. Will be interesting to see if he ever addresses it, possibly even using it as part of a package shot during an upcoming episode of the show.
James Richardson exemplifies right-wing privilege in his tone-deaf, late-to-the-party coming-out piece for the Washington Post, which went live at 6AM today.
“I'm a senior GOP spokesman, and I'm gay. Let me get married.”
Well, fuck you, James Richardson.
Gay marriage, as with other hot-button issues, is something conservatives are against for the masses but which they expect they either won't need (who needs tax protections if you're rich?) or will be able to override (anyone ever hear of a well-off, well-connected gay person denied access to his or her injured partner in the hospital?). Too many issues are used by right-wingers as stepping-stones up onto their high horses, even as in private their behavior is no different from that of the people they seek to disenfranchise or shame: Issues of abortion and sex and health care come to mind.
So for Richardson to begin his editorial in this way, it just reinforces the image of the GOP as being Machiavellian, disingenuous and, when things get real, entitled.
According to con artist V. Stiviano, Donald Sterling is not only losing his mind and a racist, he's also gay. Wonder why she waited until now to let this latest piece of info drop.
Jesus, could this moron have picked a less discreet side-piece/beard? Next, she'll upload photos of him sitting on the toilet.

Shepard Smith, who is too cowardly to tell anyone he's gay, speaking about the suicide of Robin Williams, seems to be bristling with rage that Williams took his own life. Completing blowing off the very real grip depression can have on people, he said one of the reasons Williams may have killed himself in “a fit of depression” is that he was “such a coward.”
He then gleefully transitions to Republican talking head Kennedy by saying Williams used to get high with her aunt. (Kennedy snickers at the revelation, then tries to contextualize it by dissing the '60s for its Haight-Ashbury “haze,” because the '60s were the worst decade ever for Republicans.)
All of which underscores the importance of not having right-wingers deliver your eulogy.
Smith's contempt for Robin Williams is appalling in this segment, and the timing of his comments is in extremely poor taste. What will it take for people to turn off FOX News for good?
