    Like Rock Hudson, everyone knew about Ricky long ago. It sure hurt his career.

    I don't know about closet, but he did get married at one point, if I remember right. I remember when he admitted to being gay and thinking so what is the news.

    Why do we care one way or the other? This should NOT be news.

    Well, I'm either way out of touch with celebrity gossip (most likely) or psychic. I just assumed he was gay, and "out". What do I know ...

    you and me both Alexxx. When I heard the "news" I thought to myself, "haven't we known that for years?"

    I could have sworn he came out a couple of years ago amidst news that he was having a baby with a close female friend.....or am I confusing him with Clay Aiken??

    I do not get all this coming out stuff. So does that mean that people like Joey Fatone need to get a press conference going to say they are straight? I think that people should go out with whom they want, and that it is really not a big deal either way anymore in this day and age.

    On one hand I agree with this. On the other hand, I think that celebrities being open about their orientation makes the whole idea less "frightening" to a segment of the population that is frightened by such things, and hopefully will lead to an eventual...I was going to say tolerance, but I don't think a person's orientation is something that requires tolerance. Understanding, I guess, that everyone is different in some respect - gay, straight, black, brown, white, child-free, Octomom, atheist, religious - whatever. We're all a little different, we're all a little the same.

    Re: Ricky Martin comes out of the closet

    I've assumed it for years and admit I was extremely disappointed when I first realized it but only b/c I had a major crush on him. I don't know if anyone remembers, but he was part of the Puerto Rican group, Menudo, and they were HUGE down there. And he was their main star so I can see where it'd be difficult for him to 'officially' come out.

    Kudos to him, though I don't know why he felt the need (perhaps it was to hawk his book as someone else mentioned.) Straight, gay, bi, it doesn't matter to me, just as long as they treat their partners well. Hopefully announcements such as this will move society forward into caring less.
