why should the world act like he's obligated to tell it to the world. cant those bigots just be mad at him for being a gay friendly straight manthe really nasty part is that it is a highly vocal jerk part of the gay community that pushes this whole "if you are gay you must tell" attitude about public figures. if you arent out to the world you are ashamed of being gay blah blah. and they have the right to out you against your wishes
No it didnt NEED to be said, and Tim's career hasnt been held hostage by his being or not being gay. No one ever siad "Tim Cook coulld be a great leader if he wasnt gay".as for your "just be" comment, how was he not. people need to get off the sexuality issue. Hes not a GAY CEO. He's a CEO who happens to be gay. judge him by what he has done, not who he does
He wasnt silent. he spoke out against such laws. It isnt any less if the speaker is straight, gay etc. Sexuality is a private issue and despite the attitudes of folks like you, public figures do have the same privacy rights. It is the dark side of the internet that we can get so much information because now some people believe it is owed to us. it is not.
If you ignore his cancer yes. but once that came into the picturew the media made it THE thing. Most of them didnt believe there was Apple without Steve. Ignoring that he didnt design, build and program everything all by himself
I can understand why he didnt say anything and why it was a difficult choice. its really no ones business and yet now the media will hit whore off this and make it into a major issue for days. and so on.
he never claimed to be anything so he didnt lie. it doesnt change if hes a decent person or his knowledge and skills as CEO.
