Some responses in other forums and blogs about Ellen Page coming out… they’re pretty nasty… I’ll leave names out:
“Who give s a f***! I’m heterosexual & I don’t have to announce that…Your gay your gay. WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!”
“agreed. yawn. I dont care. never questioned it. dont have any concerns about it. yawn. get back to work please.”
“Ok she gay. Lets move on. I enjoyed her work and never once thought is she or is’ent she gay. Why do gays feel they have to announce it and then go on and on about it.”
“Nobody actress says she’s gay. Nobody cares.”
They don’t sound very supportive to her to me and this country claims to be fighting for equal rights which is what Ellen did this for. The people of America don’t really mind if other celebrities came out but when Ellen did it, people are pissed off for what ever reason. A lot of straights all over the internet are offended of her coming out. Why? Probably because they’re disappointed that she turned out gay ’cause a lot of straights wanted to date her. Yeah, Ellen is pretty hot but it didn’t surprise me that she’s a lesbian. She had those rumors for years and there had to be a few things that were different about her so it didn’t surprise me at all.
The reason that famous people and celebrities hide their homosexuality is ’cause they have to. Why? It’ll hurt their careers… but since it’s alright for celebs to be gay in this day and age, this is why a lot of them are coming out. They’re all doing it for equality.
Once again, I’m NOT gay and NOT liberal but I totally support Ellen. I really liked her in the movie, “Inception”, that was my favorite role that she was in.
Everybody claims to support equal rights but everybody is hating on Ellen for coming out? What’s wrong with that picture?
Before anyone accuses me of hating gay people, it’s not true. I’m not a homophobe, I just don’t agree with gay marriage but I support gay people, though. I respect who they are, greatly but everybody getting offended of Ellen coming out proves how a lot of people are homophobes out there. I totally support Ellen for coming out as I thought that was a brave and inspirational move. She had balls to do that.
Do liberals really support equality? After a lot of their responses of Ellen coming out… I don’t know.
