Pressured to “come out the closet” WTF??


Today I was reading over at The Edge via Clutch Magonline, that gay groups in California are now pressuring Queen Latifah to "come out the closet" in order to support Prop 8.


"Queen Latifah is being pressured to “come out the closet” by a number of prominent gay groups. The groups would like for her to come out to help use her voice and support in helping overturning the controversial Proposition 8, which prohibits same sex marriage in California. "


“the organization is threatening to boycott Queen Latifah if she doesn’t come out of the closet and they want her to do it during the People’s Choice Awards.” source

Ok seriously, this is starting to get a bit out of hand now, the way people are being "forced" to support Prop 8. And it's also showcasing how much people "use" and only want support when they need you and when they are done won't even remember your name!!

Now this is fucking ridiculous! You can not force someone to come out! It's totally up to an individual rather or not they choose to broadcast their sexuality! Boycott??? WTF??? That's insane!

Oh this is highly unacceptable. HIGHLY. Queen Latifah needs to tell each and every one of them where they can stick their self-righteousness. How dare they think it's ok to forcefully use her celebrity status to further their own agenda.

Hey there!

I didn't realize that Dana was getting pressure.

Actually, Dana has never been INSIDE the closet...she has just chosen not to discuss her personal life. That is her perogative!

Peace, blesings and DUNAMIS!

This is absurd. Who would think of something like this!? Why use her fame to get what they want! It's her personal life. They're going to bring down her career to make themselves happy?

But then again, the Queen is way to Royal to be brought down. They'll never get the chance.
