Based on the way you act here I would be surprised if anyone had questions about your sexuality.

You'd be surprised. Every once in a while I have to sit someone down and flat out tell them. That's usually when they ask why I'm not going out to their bar for the 4th time this week when we're on the road. Or, hey I went by your room last night at 10pm...where were you?

I actually prefer it if the gossip mill does the work for me. Then its not me coming out at work, but rather some other person running their mouth.

You come across as the flamboyant drama queen type here.

He's not talking about saying "my husband and I went to our family reunion this weekend". His point is clear.

Actually, if you say that even once at work, then everyone will know. People gossip.

The only way to not be out at work is to not have any personal friendship with anyone in your office and to lie in any social interaction with coworkers.

Actually, saying 'my husband and I went to our family reunion this weekend' is coming out at work.

As Olive said, my point was pretty clear. You don't avoid it, but you don't shove it in people's faces either. Its not their business. It should be irrelevant.

Unfortunately, there are a LOT of people who find it very relevant, to the point that they are trying to pass laws to enable the denial of service, medical care, employment, and housing to people who are openly LGBT or even suspected of being so.

That's why coming out is brave. Its also highly important because there are many people who demonize us. Coming out provides context

I could say there are people trying to pass laws to deny people freedom of religion, to force the government and employers to pry into your private sex life and to generate more business for lawyers at the expense of actually useful jobs.

It's none of their business.

Not a coincidence that coming out day and sausage pizza day coincide.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything you have." Ronald Reagan.

A government big enough to gather all this information on your private life is a government big enough to use it against you. Mores go in waves. There are libertine ages and Victorian ages. Rather dangerous to assume this libertine age will continue indefinitely.

RE: Happy Coming Out Day !
If you are happy, so be it, but what are you coming out for? I assume this has something to do with one of the below
No sex
Lots of sex
Sex with dogs
Sex with females
Sex with males
Sex with stuffed animals
Sex with yourself
Sex with with corn on the cob
all the above


The title does not explain this but "coming out" is probably not needed. I'm fairly sure everyone around those "coming out" already know.

And the only one making a big deal out of it is the one..."coming out". Live your life like everyone around you. If no one else has a reason to explained their self ...why do you? Are you wanting something special? Like a birthday gift? What are you wanting that you weren't getting? By "coming out"
