Tim Cook was already "outed" by Gawker 2 years ago.

There are many degrees of sexual persuasion and sex drive. Some gays are flamingly homosexual while others are simply non-macho. I suppose gays are more adept at identifying other gays by the slightest of mannerisms but personally I never got any gay vibes from Cook having only seen him in professional appearances. Is there any credible evidence of Cook and a partner? As far as I'm concerned, until there is or he says something, I will just consider him non-sexual because he doesn't present himself as either homosexual or heterosexual, just male.
Just curious about this comment.
Why is gay ok but trans is a reason to worry? Is it because women are not as good as CEOs? Or because he might not work as hard after having his salary cut by 30% or so? Or is it just that trans is too wierd, but gay is mostly sort of acceptable now?
I really doubt Tim Cook gives a shit who has "outed" him as gay- it's been taken as fact for a while now, there's been magazine covers about it, and Cook hasn't bothered to give the issue a second of his time or attention. Good for him. He's treating it like the useless noise that it is.

What's all the fuss about? Tim Cook has been out of the closet for years.
Must be a slow news day.
The problem is that most American males see themselves as macho -- gun-toting Rambo wannabees. Haven't they noticed that a lot of gay men tend to buff up their bodies in daily gym visits, and many of them could probably take on the role of Rambo.
I'm sure Steve Jobs knew of Cook's sexual orientation when he nominated him for the CEO job. That's all that counts as far as Apple is concerned.
This CNBC co-anchor Simon Hobbs is a snob. He talks with that English accent and thinks he's superior. Why does this cable network hire these
type of people? Mandy Drury is another beauty too. She hates Apple and shows it every chance she gets. Apple is a great company and Tim Cook
is doing a wonderful job running it. Get ready for all these new products and the i-phone 6 to hit the market and then we will be talking about Tim Cook again. Every person is allowed to live their own lives with respect and dignity.
Whether or not anyone is, or has openly declared (outed) that, "they are gay", our reaction, response or commentary to such, if any, should never be more than, "So What"!
Why? It is generally believed that Jesus was dedicated to the work of teaching and also never married.
Apple CEO 'outed' as gay?
This might be the *one* time 'This wouldn't have happened if Steve were CEO' applies, but then again, who knows and more importantly, who cares?
Tim, if you're gay, you're doing a great job as CEO. If you're straight, you're doing a great job as CEO.
If he is gay, maybe he wants to keep it private because it is intensely personal. Maybe it is more professional, as he does not want it impacting international business. Maybe he just wants to be known as the CEO of Apple, not the gay CEO of Apple.
He is a public figure so unfortunately he has to endure whatever speculation we all throw out there. Or hopefully he's just ignoring it and continuing to direct his teams in the general direction of 'awesomeness'
Have to give props to most of the AI community for their general positive attitude on this thread.
Those kinds of things really originate from groups that feel persecuted in some way. If no one cared either way a few decades ago (or whenever gay pride parades started), you wouldn't continue to see them today.
