I don't think it was obvious, but I agree that it is information better left unheralded.

Not obvious? She might as well have been wearing a sign for the last 30 years.

I remember the show in the 70's on called "Bridget Loves Berney" where she played the devoted wife. The disgusting deviancy demonstrated by homosexuals sickens me. It is a sin in the eyes of every major religion and homosexuality should be banned as illegal like in all the Moslem countries.
Hahahaha....yeah...those Muslim countries have the right idea.
And while we're at it, make it illegal for a woman to leave the house
without her husband. Don't forget your burka when you move
to Iraq.

If I was in a Moslem country I would surely abide by that. I think bragging about the fact that you lick women's private parts and want to be accepted for admitting it is disgusting. Women are allowed to leave the house anywhere in the Moslem world without their husband by the way. They just need his permission. That's all. You take some and leave some in every society. The refusal to allow homosexuality is proper. It is deviant and immoral.
Holy crap you're scary!

FYI...she admitted that she's gay, she didn't mention anything about what she
does or doesn't lick.

So you'd be ok with having to ask permission from your husband to leave the house?

Hold on here....
I just looked at your profile.
You're a direct descendant of Julius Caesar, a psychic and your favorite "hot spot"

I have nothing against gays, they have a right to live whatever lifestyle they want, but why do they feel the need to announce it to the media like its a big deal? I dont have to hold a press conference to announce im straight.

Yes, I obey my husband as a wife is told to do in the Bible. I ask his permission to go out now! I am not living in a Moslem country but I respect his decsions as my husband.
What is wrong with K Mart? It is my favorite place.
I am reading your mind. You are a deviant and you want legitimacy. Pray to God to make yourself a humble obedient woman and have lots of babies!!!
K-Mart is your favorite place? You pick up a lot of knick knacks for the trailer there, do you?
