At the beautiful age of seventy-two, actress Holland Taylor just ai???came out.ai??? Or as she phrased it ai???no, I havenai??i??t come out because I am out. I live out.ai??? Regardless, it’s news to us, and possibly to some of her fans. And while lesbians everywhere are thrilled and tickled to death to have such an amazing woman in the club, some canai??i??t help but wonder–when won’t this be news?
I havenai??i??t come out because I am out. I live out
While our culture is progressing, we are still living in a time where people are shocked, surprised and sometimes horrified by the sexuality of the people around us, and that, of course, includes celebrities. While most celebrities knew the game getting into their profession, many of them still, understandably, seek out that bit of privacy. But are fans ever really shocked? And is it really news every time someone dates someone new? Is Taylorai??i??s love life national news only because of her sexuality? Would we be talking about her private life right now if it were announced that she is dating a man instead of a woman?
There will come a time in our lives when sexuality is not news. When we get to announce our love for exactly what it is, and not because of what gender it is.
