It is a legitimate question. The LGBT community is so pressed on seeing celebrities being gay they have started to assume so many celebrities are gay including Taylor Swift. Then to make matters worse, the ones that are gay, they pressure to be openly gay to support their agenda. An example of this is Jillian Michaels.
Gay people with the most exposure (reality TV shows, celebrities, etc) are definitely desperate for attention, everything about their behavior shows it loud and clear. But there are a lot of gay people who go about simply living their lives without that need for attention. I think the ones who have chosen to be in the limelight, if not gay, would have found another way to be in that limelight, and some even chose to be gay for that attention. More to do with their personality rather than their gayness. As to what the percentages are, of gays who seek attention and those who don't, I have no idea. But there have always been gay people, and the attention seeking didn't seem to arise until the media created the idea of being a "star" over being gay.
@Haroush, I won't dispute that. When I went to college, the idea was to look at everything, evaluate the evidence, decide for ourselves. Neutral. The focus on learning how to think. From everything I've seen reported in a wide variety of media, it appears that many institutes of higher education have been taken over by those with a very pronounced agenda, thinking not allowed in case it differs from the agenda. I would say that maybe that's not so, you know how it's always the worst to hit the media, but it seems like colleges that don't follow the far left are always being attacked by the far left.
@Haroush - I have no concern over the examples you have given (the ones no one dare dispute). It seems your argument is coming down to "attention seeking people are attention seeking". If you are trying to make a name as a celebrity, you by definition are attention seeking, gay or straight.
Mass media is mass media. TBR already said what I would have said in reply to your response. Attention seekers are attention seekers. Claiming "Are homosexuals desperate for attention" (which is a generalized question) is what I replied too. Being "observant" of the effects mass media has, or homosexuals appearing in mass media, is irrelevant to the general question. I couldn't give my reply in the comment for my vote, therefore I placed it down here. They are not "desperate for attention." Majority are just trying to live their life void of being made to feel like they're disgusting, etc. They just want normal lives. Desperate for attention? No. Some? Maybe. Attention seekers are attention seekers.
I'm going to say this for probably the 100th time now, I dont mind what consenting adults do with themselves behind closed doors and I have no prejudice towards the LGBT community. Just lie what marylin manson said I dont encourage anyone to just choose sexualties. I see people like lady gaga and miley cyrus I think they exploit their orientation for vanity. Thats what i have a problem with.
