I am seeing the news today that Apple CEO Tim Cook is now publicly gay, I am not an Apple fan, but I am glad to see more and more people are starting to come out and are not being afraid of who they are. I myself am and proud of it myself, just like in all the articles I have seen "Let me be clear: I'm proud to be gay...."   http://money.cnn.com/2014/10/30/technology/tim-cook-gay/

Good for him. I already read that Russian wants to ban him because they think they're going to get AIDs or Ebola. It's amazing how tiny minded, disgusting, and ignorant people can be.

Its unfortunate what world we live in and people acting the way just like you said "tiny minded,stupid and ignorant". The gay community seems to still be viewed wrong.

That is true. It brings out the ignorant and I had to unfollow two folks on twitter over their stupid comments. I admire and salute that Cook took the leap and courage to come out. He is in such a high position that it wouldn't affect him one single bit announcing his coming out, but there are tons of folks not as fortunate as him that can't come out for fear of harassment, loss of income and even fear for life.

Its still not a perfect world yet, but at least we are at a point in time that folks can come out of the closet unlike decades ago when no one dared.

Great for him! Hopefully this makes it easier for others that are not in such high places in society to feel comfortable with who they are and to have others accept them for who they are. :)

We are not in a good place until nobody feels the need to come out.

This thread is being unlocked to all for further intelligent conversation about the recent news involving Tim Cook and his recent announcement.

 

If at any immediate moment any of our members makes a derogatory comment or a comment we feel is inappropriate, it will lead to immediate corrective action, including up to termination of your account here at S4GRU.

 

We are a community of all races, religion, sexual orientation and what ever anyone here wants to determine themselves to be.

 

I don't care if your friend, family member, neighbor, co-worker or your dog identifies as being of the LGBT community. This rule still applies to you too.

 

So needless to say tread lightly with your following comments.

This is really great news. As a heterosexual male, I feel we need more of these high profile figures announcing their homosexuality. Maybe it will help (even a little bit) some younger folks deal with their own sexuality. We live in such a ridiculous world where people have to hide and suppress their true desires. It's so archaic how some people feel about these groups that it makes me sick. Way to go, Tim. Now, can we finally go back to the old Apple logo? :)

I'm glad we live in a society that allows you to express the true nature of your sexual orientation.  I still recommend he put the iPhone somewhere the sun doesn't shine, but this time I'll suggest he put it securely inside his desk so he isn't so distracted at work.  :D  :tu:  Better?   

 

* I do support homosexual unions and legalization of MJ for medical

Since I feel your "Better?" comment is a publicly sarcastic response to my warning, let me publicly say, enjoy your week suspension from S4GRU. Hopefully when you return you'll have a better attitude.

 

Let this show to all members that the staff at S4GRU does not care what your member title is. Everyone must follow the rules.

Robert is traveling today, so as tech editor, I am the admin pro tem.  As such, I am going to lay down the law -- and there will be no debate about my decision.

 

This thread is hereby locked and will not be reopened.  However, it will not be deleted nor hidden.  It will remain viewable for those who wish to read it.  That is the best compromise between two competing agendas that seemingly cannot get along in this discussion.
