What do you make of this long post someone made on Wentworth's IMDB board tonight? I suspect it might be 'Ice Wine' herself posing as a gay man since this person just coincidentally signed up to IMDB today and seems to be saying the same stuff she is saying but from the perspective of a 'gay man' wanting to speak to his 'brothers':
[quote]Are my brothers supportive or out for ruthless vengeance?
Let me start by saying I'm a gay man with a loving partner and (at the risk of showing my age) am in a committed and devoted partnership for 15 years. I therefore am not interested in competing for Wentworth Miller or jealous of him in any way. I only wish him the very best in his personal and public life, and am very proud to call him a brother in arms in this changing world that is a little more accepting everyday.
I've been reading this board (plus the Cavill and Pitt ones) on and off for the last 6 or 7 years, but I have never registered or participated because I never had much to contribute about Mr. Miller/Cavill/Pitt, and also didn't want to air my opinion that I always felt Mr Miller was gay because the ladies on this board seem to really believe Wentworth Miller was straight.
Can you blame them though? For years I've read interviews with both Mr. Miller and the Prison Break cast, swearing up and down, that he was straight.
Which brings me to my question: Why are some of you showing vengeance and vindictiveness to these ladies?
You're acting as if Wentworth coming out is some sort of victory for you to use as a smack down against them. Hate to show my age, but I think you have a lot of growing up to do if you think this is an eye for an eye situation. The ladies didn't buy Mr. Miller being gay not out of vindictiveness but because he kept confusing them with his denials. But you are being vindictive now, and just for the sake of this victory you feel you got. I find this childish and very immature.
The level of maturity is all the more alarming when I see posts asking for the ladies to apologise! Mm, what? Why do you feel personally hurt because they were confused by Mr. Miller's constant denials? Are you related to Mr. Miller to take that so personally that you need an apology? These types of very immature and outlandish comments alarm me. Please conduct yourselves better my brothers.
Also, I've seen a couple of comments about the ladies not showing support for Wentworth Miller. This isn't correct. One glance at the board and I already can see a few threads showing support.
Thanks for Boycotting Russia, Wentworth - HerExcellency
Awesome - HKFans
Aw, Good for Him - Nyxie
Respect My Wenty - Pink_the_doll
People suggesting a 'better' time for him to have come out - b_bluesky
It is sad that I can't see many supportive threads from my brothers. Instead, glancing through, I see threads asking about Mr. Miller's favorite and possible sexual positions, discussing how hot he is, how everyone already knew he was gay, how angry the ladies are (along with 'I told you so' threads), his ethnicity, his ex-boyfriends, his current boyfriends, his ex-girlfriends, Perez Hilton and plenty of discussion of which actor will be next to step out of the closet.
How are these topics supportive or congratulatory to Mr. Miller's announcement?
So maybe if you happen to live in a glass house, you shouldn't be throwing rocks, my brothers. Live, and learn.
