For the benefit of all, please help and instruct those who you suspect are in the closet to come out. It is vitally important so as to prevent things like this: http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2010/05/before_he_hired_an_escort_reke.php Rekers is just the newest case of the dangers of the closet and denying the truth about yourself. Time and time again, case after case, closeted gays are so put off by their desires they seek to destroy the lives of innocent people have more maturity to accept who they are and embrace it. The clinical prescription of physical torture of 4 year olds for the subjective characteristic of "acting effeminate" is just about as low as you can go. The more people know gay people, the more people will understand. Funny enough there is a magnitude more gay people than Jews in the US, but who is more accepted with full rights and protections? It's not even about minority at this point. It's about preventing torture of innocent children in the future and in the present. And coming out of the closet doesn't require a cover page on People magazine or a spot on Oprah. It just has to start being comfortable in your own skin and fulfilling your desires as you see fit. If someone asks you, respond truthfully and proudly, not ashamed. What would be the worst that would happen? You would be tortured? That's what happens when you stay in the closet.
