Doogie Howser is gay. Who cares? Neil Patrick Harris, the actor who played Doogie Howser has bravely "come out of the closet" to put an end to
rumor and speculation about his sexuality.
Why, in God's name, would anyone even speculate about what anyone's sexuality might be? Who cares?
Your mailman might be gay?
Do you care? Unless homosexuality somehow interferes with the delivery of mail, why would you spend a moment
thinking about it?
The cop on the beat might be gay?
Do you think that a gay cop wouldn't be capable of writing a parking ticket?
Oh oh, what if the used car salesman you are haggling with is gay? Would that make the car you purchase from him.....gay?
I find it amazing, personally, that people spend any time thinking about this sort of thing. Nevertheless, it would seem that people do. But why?
Why does it seem so important for people to know what others might be doing in the privacy of their bedrooms? In the same vein, why aren't people
concerned about whether someone is hungry? Why isn't the energy devoted to rumor and speculation about someone's -- anyone's -- "gayness" or
"bisexuality" or , for that matter "heterosexuality" spent in pursuits that would possibly be of some real benefit?
I know, I know....."God said homosexuality is wrong". Does that mean that HE appointed you as some sort of morality cop? Does God need your help
in determining whether someone is gay or not?
On a social level, I applaud those individuals who have "come out of the closet" to announce their sexuality. It probably takes real courage to do
so. After all, the gay community is still being persecuted by small minded people who believe that they are the judges of morality. But, really,
why do people even care?
