I don't understand what motivates these obviously gay public figures to remain closeted. Do they think it will somehow have a negative affect on their already successful careers? If it's a privacy issue then why did they pursue such high profile positions in a celebrity driven industry?

On the other hand, r11, black LGBT kids are MUCH more in need of gay public role models and the black community is MUCH more in need of people who can do effective gay outreach and education than the white east coast country club set that are Anderson Cooper's people.

Every glass closeted celebrity has an excuse and the decisions of every glass closeted celebrity who isn't attacking the community can be understood when you look try to look at their situation from their point of view and with empathy, r23. It doesn't make sense to arbitrarily privilege racial factors as sacrosanct and wholesale dismiss all other ones.%0D %0D "Attacks" is not over dramatic for a lot of the stuff he gets. There have been years of angry posters in forums calling him a closet coward and blaming him for everything bad that happens to gays including the suicides of kids for whom someone like Robin or Shep Smith would actually be much more natural, relateable role models. Anderson's the only one who's been outed all the time, so there's been low awareness other glass closeted gays even exist in news and all the glass closeted gays with more relateable backgrounds (i.e. all of them of all races) have had extremely low visibility.

I cannot stand all of the cowards who portaray themselves as women who had the audacity to post on a blog annoymously! What a bunch of no educated women with not a whole heck of a lot to say. As usual. A bunch of chatter, hiding behind their computers. Oh, but miss "I CAN"T STAND Robin Roberts is the biggest coward of them all. Stay behind your computer. You are just JEALOUS of Robin, who is a really nice person. I have met her at a few basketball games a few times and she is not stuck up at all. Not ever, she may have just been tired of the SHI* you and so many others were shoveling and decided to walk away from all of the smell. You have the AUDACITY to hide behind your computer and make such ugly comments about anyone. I'll bet you are ugly, overweight and on welfare, do not have a job, watch morning shows, and drive a truck? Who cares that this woman is smart, educated, kind, and a highly paid anchor on Good Morning America?
I think in George's case that he and his wife Alexandra are very happy; I do not believe that either one of them are gay, but so what is they or one of them were. What is wrong with you bigoted angry, mean, and hostile women who talk so badly about a woman you know nothing about except . . . that from the gossip you have heard, Robin is gay? So very typical of all of you ignorant, uneducated, women who have nothing more in common except to sprew hatred on a post about a successful, non-republican anchor. Are you kidding me? Really? I am not surprised by any of you. I meet you each and every day going in to work each day. Jealously envy, and you don't know me personally at all thank you Jesus!Why shouldn't I and anyone else struck our stuff as we walk past you on our way to a good job that we have worked very hard to get? I paid my dues, went to college, and deserve to be wherever God has placed me. I am not studying anything you say or have even tried to say. I love Robin because she is real. She is not stuck up, she just is tired of the hard cold stares she continued to receive from people who do not know her from the next person. She is successful, what of it?
She doesn't need a man to make or break or even align herself with. Sometimes, we think enough about ourself to not have to be associated with some man just to be like everyone else. That does not make any successful woman, Beyonce, Jennifer A, Angelina J., Halle B., me, or anyone else a lesbian. Stop waisting our time with lies.

I have spent most mornings.in my life tuning into gma-except for the last few years of the Jane Pauley Today Show years. But if there existed better alternatives than Matt or Gayle, I would change networks. Gma has sunk so low trying to win the ratings war it seems like after the first half-hour they have absolutely no news. It is a constant interviewing of a star with a new movie coming out, pop news with that horrible Lara Spencer, deals of the day, or a couple of songs by somebody I have no interest in hearing. I think Robin is pretty good at what she does, even tho she does seem to get too self-involved with the stories sometimes. I will admit that I am a little pissed at her for not coming out-the strides we have made in the last couple of decades are due in large part to our coming out to our families, colleagues, neighbors, etc. it would be so good if millions of Americans who invite er in to their homes every morning knew that she is one of us.

Roberts has been with the same woman for ten years. That's a looong time for her partner to be hiding. There has to be some psychological issue that arises from these types of arrangements.

""smug" is code for black and successful. Robin has the nerve to be both."
Now hold on a minute - IMO, just about every criticism here ABSOLUTELY applies to that smug bitch Kelly Ripa.

There is likely SOME racism, sexism or other bigotry behind some of the criticism of her, but to be honest, there are legitimate reasons people dislike her, and not Anderson - Anderson came out in the prime of his career, without any incentive to do so. Robin, OTOH, did it during a time when her career is likely not going to go on for much longer, for whatever reason.
I try to be fair and to hedge my own criticism with an acknowledgment that I am making it from a position of entitlement, but just saying.

Does the Robin hate suprise anyone? DL loathes black women. Whether its Serena, Beyonce, Michelle Obama, Halle, Dionne, Oprah and Gabourey Sidibe. Datalounge has nothing good to say about black women including the postive ones like Robin Roberts. Watch when the French Open starts you going to see all the negative Serena williams threads pop up. Even sweet harmless Lupita isn't good enough and you want her to go away. When will the Tamron Hall hate begin?

Why are you here if you see nothing but hate? Do you enjoy wallowing in what you claim is a place where every person hates black women?

[quote] However, I'll take Robin inserting herself into a story over Ann "I can't EVER let someone finish a fucking sentence without interrupting their ass" Curry. Any day, any way.

C'mon, Mary. It's not like it isn't rooted in fact.
The frau hate is rampant here, and minority fraus are even more reviled.

This will probably come across as sour grapes, but here's my annoyance with many celeb cancer survivors and some every day people, usually with means: Many come across as possessing practically supernatural abilities, manifesting their amazing recoveries and remissions. They talk about taking the bull by the horns and all but brag. There are the memoirs, interviews (promoting their survival story books,) even reality shows. Many sound as if they survived/conquered their illness by their very own innate magnificent shear will. (Sheer?) Sure, attitude and changing to a healthier lifestyle are necessary. Let's not forget cutting edge, best of medical intervention, something of which many do not have access. Employers are fully behind them with time off and support. Exploring alternative therapies are advised and available. Many have superior support personal systems. What about those that go above and beyond in normal life, but don't make it? It's like they have failed in some way. I've even wondered how many (celebs) blow up a potential serious situation far beyond the actual for publicity. It's starting to sound as if one "does it right," they'll survive...make that, Conquer It. Cancer appears to be a new cool trend for the famous.

R145, I think it was GMA's decision to exploit Robin's illness for ratings.
|by Anonymous||reply 146||04/30/2014|
Agree, 146, from 145. More of what I tried to describe, addressing this "trend" beyond Robin. I guess I would be all glowing after having my very life back. I'm glad for survivors, but it's too In My Face and feel those that lost and lose the fight are cast aside for their heroics.

Yes she did R144. That must have been a huge rock you've been hiding under.

I've always thought Robin came across as smug. When she talks to people, she tilts her head back and looks down on them. To me that always make someone look smug. She might not actually have a smug attitude, it could just be her body language.

She possesses what I call a "fake persona" along with that other gay guy, David Muir.

I don't care if she's gay or not and I appreciate all she's gone through. I'm just sick of seeing her everywhere! She is smug and so incredibly self-important. Please .. Enough - Too much - get her away!

Why is she on yet *another* vacation? She was just off for the first 2 weeks of July, with sporadic apparent 'long weekends' off (missing thursday and fridays), and now she has been off another week. This woman takes more vacations that our President. She has literally taken off work an average of 1 week per month all year so far.
And ABC pays her millions for this? So that she can take off every 2 weeks on yet another vacation? Phooey!
