Scrolling through the world wide web on my obviously very busy Friday night, I ran across two available “stories” regarding two different actors within a short amount of time. The first one read something to the effect of…His Former Lover About To Reveal Exclusive Details To Expose…
The next one said something like…Reasons Why It Does Matter If Joe Actor Is Gay Or Not!
That one bothered me more than the first. The initial one I thought…Okay…this guy wants some money – that is the reason behind it – I’m not going to read it…because, I don’t care…
When the second came through one of various news-feeds I again, did not read it. I also didn’t have a reason to dismiss it like I had with the first one; that bothers me.So here we are… I’m bitching about it.
I don’t know. Perhaps it would have provided me with some mind blowing facts & I’d come to a realization … making this entire post rubbish. I seriously doubt that though.
My whole point is: STFU.
The only people who give two shits are simpletons.
It doesn’t matter if Joe Actor is gay. It doesn’t matter if Jane Singer likes chicks. It doesn’t matter. The gender that someone is attracted to holds zero baring on their talents or failures. It holds zero value on how awesome or crappy their personality is… It’s just as unimportant as the color of their hair or the size of their shoe.
If somebody is in on a secret as to why this is news, and trending news at that – please… attempt to enlighten me – but I can’t promise I’ll agree with you.
“Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I’m changing it to ‘God Hates Baguettes.’ It’s tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.”
