I am at a loss as to why the sexuality of anyone, least of all entertainers, is a matter of public interest.

Being gay is not something that requires an "admission" or "confession" like owning up to theft. Mr. Bass was doing the right thing, living his life, socializing with his friends as he saw fit. When the paparazzo starting hounding him on the issue he has come out and said "yes, thats me". He certainly wasn't living like Rock Hudson....

The only person whose sexuality I have an interest is is my wifes! Keep 'yer noses out of peoples bedrooms and this country will do just fine.

Here's a link to an article that I wrote on the subject that was featured on both BlogCritics.org and my own blogsite...

You know, Gianni, I don't care what them soddomites like Lance do in bedrooms. It's the park and turnpike restrooms that I'm worried about.

Willie,

Why don't you lead by example and come out first?

WKW, Perhaps the reason that no pro golfers have announced that they are homosexuals is that none are homosexuals. Or if any are in fact of that persuasion, quite possibly they have concluded that it is nobody's business or concern. One can't compare a PGA member to some clown in a rock band, who, incidentally, most people, myself included, have never heard of.

Alex,
Didn't you say in a previous comment that you were in your sixties? I think it would be understandable that you wouldn't have heard of many from this decade. Frankly, your ability to handle this "Interweb" is a mystery to me. And the chance that there are zero gay golfers seems pretty low, especially with some of butches on the LPGA.

mike, You wrote 'Frankly, your ability to handle this "Interweb" is a mystery to me.' I have no idea what is meant by this statement. Please explain. I am in fact 61 years of age. If there are any homosexuals on the PGA tour, I can't see where it would be anyone's business or concern.

William,
This isn't your first gay story, is it?

Perhaps you might like to announce something, or maybe you have already announced it. Anyway, that's your business.

However the business of other peoples sexuality is their own business also. So maybe you shouldn't be so keen for them to come out, just to please you.

By the way, gays aren't usually into sports anyway, so perhaps that's the reason why they aren't coming out, William. They don't usually have the competitive tendencies.

Bass was smart, kept his mouth shut, make his money while he/they were hot...

Professional athletes must be no different, regardless of some of the stupid things they do...

I don't see any heterosexual athlete making grandiose public statements about their sexual preferences. Why would a gay athlete? Not that there ARE any gay pro athletes. An earlier commenter had it right - gay men just don't have that competetive streak.

And anyway, why are you referring to golfers as 'athletes'?
