I am proud to be a heterosexual man. This is something worth celebrating.
Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.
To keep this a secret from my public, as I did up until today, would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with.
These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.
Just thought you’d like to know. This sort of thing is news, evidently.
I always find it ridiculous that these stars have to make a big deal of announcing they are homosexual, in a culture that celebrates it – as though anyone is going to say a negative word about it.
Go announce you’re a homosexual in Saudi Arabia or Iran. Then I’ll call you “brave”. This? Please.
Actually, my girlfriend (yes, I’m – gulp – heterosexual, too! Power, brother!) told me Ricky Martin was gay several years ago. Apparently she (a Peruvian) and all of her latina girlfriends (platonic, heterosexual girlfriends) were aboslutely nuts over this guy and they came to the conclusion back in the 90s that he was gay.
Not shocking news, but I guess it sells click-throughs.
Whoa! I guess standards do change over the years.
Re Ricky’s videos, a very good point indeed. The obvious turned out to be true, strangely enough….
I’m shocked by you coming out of the closet as a straight man, Sam. That avatar of yours looks rather … well .. gay.
I am also shocked by Ricky Martin’s declaration. I thought that “just-took-a-gulp-of-sour-milk” look on his face while woman writhed on him in his videos was just his subtle way of saying he disapproved of the objectification of the fairer sex.
Now I know it was something more …
Clearly The DL Chronicle’s tagline, “Kiss but don’t tell” is meant to be purely ironic, since a central aspect of conjugal relations with people of the same sex seems to be to tell everyone about it. This is specially so, apparently, if you’re a celebrity.
Imagine if being Christian were treated in the same manner, such that celebrities ran before the media and announced they were believing Christians. No doubt, such declarations would be immediately followed with, “But I’m not one of those ‘radical right-wing, fundamentalist’ type Christians.”
We’ll have to wait and see if this declaration by Mr.Martin hurts his box office, which I strongly suspect it won’t because, at the end of the day, most folks just don’t care with whom Ricky Martin snuggles.
