I couldn't agree more. I think it's ominous that there are still people who support the hiding of minority sexuality (gay, bi, Alphabet City). Those who hide or live behind fictitious sexual identities may do it for their "comfort," for presumed professional security, and any number of reasons, all of which are based on the internalized gay-shaming of the homophobic. The American public is far, far ahead of Hollywood's denizens and are trapped in the gay-loathing of yesteryear.
I'm very happy to see that both Beanie Feldstein and Jane Lynch are completely out and open and public in a big way. Whether it's their intention or a by-product, their openness contributes to the demolition of gay-shaming in the industry, and in the country at large – as does the openness of any public figure.
(This is singularly important as of yesterday, when the legal, Constitutional right to anything but missionary-position heterosexual activity is now very much in question.)
