Does it take a "special person" to be an out gay?

I don't think every gay-oriented person can do it. I've had several married/str8 fuckbuddies who I thought would make hopeless gay men, wouldn't know how to successfully navigate the world, etc. For one thing, they'd have to lose most of the life they created prior to coming out: spouse, friends, children, status and sometimes job. After that, they'd have to find a gay relationship in a world of users and losers, body nazies and social climbers. I feel they'd get victimized so many times they'd grow jaded and bitter. It's no wonder people cling to the closet. At a certain point, you have to know whether you have the balls to pull it off (most don't). I feel you have to be creative and clever; courageous and brash; stubborn and thick-skinned. You have to be tough.
