Michael Sam has come out as gay and the world gave a heavy sigh of relief. Actually the only hub bub is from players who think gay man can’t control themselves in a locker room with naked men.
My issue is why do these sports figures, actors, politicians, etc. feel the need to publicly proclaim their homosexuality?
I imagine the main reason is for themselves. At some point in their career they will be asked about a wife, girlfriend. Saying I work too much can only last so long. So they come out and suddenly no one cares who they are dating.
