I'm so not interesseted if some has sex with a man, a woman, a dog, or all three of them!
Can we now go back to whether there will be a 4" iPhone 6 too, when the 5.5" model will arive and what Apple did to make the A8 faster than the A7?
Cook is neither in nor out of the closet. It's been generally known that he's gay for some time, but like most people he sees no need to discuss his private life. Good for him — it's none of anyone else's business.

I'm confused. We all knew that. It's not an outing then and not only there is nothing wrong with this, there is also nothing wrong with talking about it.

Tim Cook is a badass. Nothing else matters. He can bang goats and sheep for all I care as long as he continues to kick ass.
And if he continues to kick ass, and wants to bang goats and sheep, then the board better perk him a farm.

I believe the reason for Tim Cook's reticence has little to do with the cultural climate within corporations. Certainly, his sexual preference makes no difference to the thousands of employees at Apple. Rather, he keeps himself in the closet out of fear that disclosure of his being gay would unfavorably affect the Company's image with that portion of the buying public that holds bigoted views. I suspect that this is the primary reason most CEOs who are gay remain in the closet.

He doesn't speak of his personal life. It doesn't matter.
I agree with most of the posts in this thread, and who gives a crap if a CEO is gay?
I also think that CNBC is a crappy channel.
However, I don't agree with a few posts in this thread, like a couple that seem to accept bestiality. No, that's not cool at all, and you belong behind bars if you are a sick and perverted, mentally ill, sadistic, animal abuser. Those kind of people can F.ck off.

You realize that America is still vastly more progressive than the majority of the world- right? How about being murdered for being gay. There's your serious problems...
As far a Tim Cook is concerned, who cares? Even if you HATE gays, which is a problem in itself, that's like not watching a movie with an actor, director, or producer that supports homosexuality. Good luck!
Now if Cook decided he wants to be a woman and starts wearing female clothes and schedules a gender change, then I'll worry. Until then, he should continue to be one of the Top CEOs of the best company in the world. I hear Ballmer is straight, maybe we should get him! /s
Yep, that is true, just read the news. There are a ton of primitive countries and certain barbaric religious countries in the world that will cause big problems for a person if they're gay, or accused of being gay, even if they're not.
I think that it would be hilarious if a few shitty countries in the world were to ban Apple products, because of a gay CEO.
I think that those kind of knuckledraggers should be provoked. F.ck 'em.
I don't understand what this obsession is with whether someone famous is gay or not. And why is it only a question when it pertains to potentially gay people and not to potentially heterosexual people?
Although people I work with know that I was once married and have a child, they don't really know much of what goes on in my private life and the question is never really raised other than "what'd you do this weekend?" It shouldn't be raised with Cook either. Raising the issue of whether he's gay makes about as much sense as guessing whether he cleans between his toes when he bathes.
Any exec's private life (and even a politician's private life) should be just that - their private life. Unless they're doing something illegal in that private life, it's really none of our business. I think one of the reasons why we're stuck with such lousy politicians in both parties is because no one in their right mind wants to be bothered with that kind of scrutiny, especially for the relatively lousy pay (as compared with a senior executive).
As soon as a reporter or commentator raises the question of whether someone is gay, there's an implication that there's something wrong with being gay. It's almost like asking, "have you stopped beating your wife lately?
