Congratulations, tsarfan. You're very brave to have come out after all these years of fevered speculation.

Good for him.

But just once it would be nice as if announcements like this weren't given the three-ring-circus treatment, where the entertainer is redefined in a publicity stunt much like a ritual rebirth, as not just a person who entertains, but a gay person who does it. As if it should surprise us that out there on our tv or on the radio there are people who look just like normal people...but they're gay.

I hate the whole tee-hee, you little girls loved him, but he was gay! Surprise!

Gay shouldn't be sensationalist news, and he shouldn't let them turn him into a circus act.

It would have been better if he had said it during a Barbara Walters special and cried. Then we could better see his human side, instead of the annoying, aging boy band member that we would like to punch in the throat for being so annoying a few years ago.

Then after he wiped his tears, Barbara could have cut to the clip that Lance brought -- a shot-for-shot re-enactment of the "I'm Gay!" segment from Brain Candy starring himself.

Y'know, on the one hand it's important for closeted little gay boys everywhere to see that they're not alone.

On the other hand, they're also being taught that they have to hide to be successfuk--a self-fulfilling prophecy if ever there were one. (Please don't mention Rupert Everett et al; he only gets to play gay characters, or those who might as well be. Why can a straight actor play gay, but not vice versa? Pisses me off).

Intercourse with a desireable or famous person due to one's career success. After patenting silent Velcro, Jimmy successfucked Lindsay Lohan in the back of a limo at the trade convention.

On Wednesday, The New York Post's Page Six column reported that Bass had been spotted with "Amazing Race" star Reichen Lehmkuhl at Atlantic House, a gay bar in Provincetown, Mass.
Following the Post report, a blog on the Washington Blade, a leading newspaper for the gay and lesbian community, said that Bass had been outed.
Through his spokeswoman, Cindy Owen, Bass, 27, declined to comment on the report. Lehmkuhl's spokeswoman, Mara Santino, also declined to comment on the Post report. ...

Well hrm, Ian McKellen has managed to avoid being typecast. Nathan Lane has been typecast, but certainly the characters of Max Biallystock, and Nathan Detroit must count for something.

In regards to gay actors wanting to avoid playing straight characters. That actually sounds fairly ludicrous. Most straight roles involve faking the on-screen relationship no matter who is playing the roles.
posted by KirkJobSluder at 9:39 AM on July 26, 2006


from the People link: As for why he's talking about this now Bass says, "The main reason I wanted to speak my mind was that (the rumors) really were starting to affect my daily life. Now it feels like it's on my terms. I'm at peace with my family, my friends, myself and God so there's really nothing else that I worry about."
He means being outed by the Post and Blade. They weren't rumors, and him coming out confirms that they were truth--truth that he didn't want to see come out. It wasn't on his terms at all, and that's the pity. Reichen came out without having to be outed--did Justin want to come out but was being persuaded not to? did he not want to? It's not like Nsync was still around. That's the real story (but we won't hear it from People).

Ben Affleck, too.

No. He's straight.

But Matthew McConaughey is gay. I'd say that is a MUCH bigger win for that team.

And people do care. Because there is a TON of money involved.

The average movie/concert ticket purchasing 14 year old girl —THE market for male stars— cares. She cares that her fav star is straight or not —not because she is bigoted— but because it's part of the adolescent fantasy of having him as your future husband. Not the guy who goes shoe shopping with you. The guy who sweeps you off your feet.

It's not about the character he plays. It's all the fantasy. If he marries he just as "out" as if he is gay.

Action stars... yeah. It matters. And that IS bigoted. Kind of. What with popular cliches involving what IS masculine, etc.

OT: I used chuckle to myself when some of my training partners make broad pronouncements about homosexuals and how NOT tough they are, etc.

I didn't have the heart (or the right) to tell them that one of the biggest, toughest, fighters in the Gym is 100% Gay McGayerson from Gayville. He usually makes his point in the ring with the homophobes.

I always wanna say "Look. Dudes. What kind of guy is going to like rolling around on the mat and in the ring with half naked men more? Who is more likely to get GOOD at it? Your average straight guy? Or a gay guy?"

Anyway.

It's different with male movie fans who find out a the chick star they like is a lesbian. Hell. That UPS the ante.

Are you sure McConaughey is gay and not just, uh a stupid stoner? Well I take that back.

70% sure. And the dude isn't dumb at all. Wierd maybe. But not dumb. Frankly, I admire and envy his slacker lifestyle.

Coming out (or not) for these stars is a financial descision. Who can fault them for that? They have to cash in while they are young and hot.

Maybe one day it won't matter.

Hopefully. It's never too late to 'come out' publicly.

Tab Hunter, Lance Bass, Sal Mineo...

Sensing a pattern? No straight guy could be that pretty.

Tab Hunter was in? I mean, sometime after 1965?

one of the biggest, toughest, fighters in the Gym is 100% Gay McGayerson from Gayville.

More evidence for the casual axiom long favoured by docgonzo &co -- what's more manly than a gay man and hotttTtt man-on-man manlove?

Coulter opens her piehole again:
ANN COULTER: I think that sort of rampant promiscuity does show some level of latent homosexuality.

DONNY DEUTSCH: OK, I think you need to say that again. That Bill Clinton, you think on some level, has — is a latent homosexual, is that what you’re saying?

COULTER: Yeah.

ericb: Which just goes to show what a massive troll she is, because both Clinton's less-than-progressive base and lesbigays would be offended by that statement.

I can honestly say, I've never been less titillated. It's not the horrible eyebrows, or the horrible band, it's the idea of Lance Bass as a sexual being.

Now his boyfriend, while not my type, is totally hot. At least the boy from the band has some good taste.

Mr Crash, a friend of mine used to do business with a guy named Richard Stilhard.

He goes by 'Dick.'

He said, 'Why fight it? Just deal with it head on.' Or at least, that's how he was quoted to me...

In Phoenix, our company used to have a vendor that came by the office every now and then.

Name of Richard. Richard Siemens.

His company? Trojan Specialty Packaging.

You can imagine all kinds of fun our receptionist had with that one.

maybe Ann was really outing herself? ...On the romantic front, Coulter seems to flit from one relationship to the next. After moving here, she dated a Democratic Senate staffer whose legislative efforts she opposed. Then she began seeing Bob Guccione Jr., the controversial founder of Spin magazine, until becoming disenchanted in March. Now she's involved with an FBI agent. ...

My big question about Annie the C is why any healthy heterosexual male would be interested in her. The bony skinny thing I could handle (I used to have the hots for Shelly Duvall); it's just that she's, well, kind of ugly...

Must be the hair.
