COMMENTS: A Star Comes Out, Homophobia’s Inner Gayness, And More Drag Race Drama!

Time for the Queerty Week in Comments, with the most compelling, thought-provoking or just downright bitchy comments that came directly from you, the readers!


“Good for him! There are actually so many closeted young actors in Hollywood it’s hard to keep track. When I moved here a year ago and started meeting some people in the industry and hearing gossip about some of these young actors i was really shocked. It’s like there is a bubble around Los Angeles and you can be as gay as you want and as long as you take a beard everyone outside of L.A. is convinced you’re straight.”

JJ congratulates the young actor for coming out, in Paul Iacono, Star Of MTV’s “The Hard Times of RJ Berger,” Comes Out Of The Closet.


“Though it may be a valid point, it can’t really be used in debates etc. as it will be too hard for people to “defend” themselves against such an accusation (as they would see it) and it may even gain them some sympathy among “the neutral public” who cannot so easily detect the truth about someone’s sexuality (because they don’t have a gaydar:-) I mean there will also be heterosexuals who oppose gay rights, so it will be a bit “unfair” to generally assume that they are all gay. Still, I have enough personal experience that points me to agree with the general conclusion of the study.”

“I hope Sharon isn’t the next Raven. Phi Phi is one of those people who has never been punched in the face, and that’s a problem. She needs to learn that you cannot, in fact, say whatever you want, whenever you want, to anyone you want. One day someone with less class than Sharon and Chad will not be so kind when he pops off like that.”

Pazmateo has some strong feelings about Phi Phi O’Hara, in QUESTION: Who Should (And Who Will) Win RuPaul’s Drag Race This Season?
“Stop bitching! This president has done [more] for gay rights than any other. It seems the feeling of the nation is switching to less gay-specific protection, and more inclusive protection! Obama has to stay in office for the gay community to have ANY hope of getting equal rights. For this, he needs to keep the middle majority happy also.

Either support him, or be happy with anti-gay presidential perspectives like Santorum, Bachmann, Palin, Romney, Perry… Now, THAT’S A F%*KIN’ NIGHTMARE. If we need to bitch, lets save it for NOM, FOF, or One Million (40,000) Moms!”
