Time to ‘Man Up’ and to Admit I’m a Straight Male

100_0341

Good Day World!

In the spirit of fairness, I’m coming out as a straight male.

Inspired by other recent stories about people coming out I decided it would be appropriate to announce my sexuality. This decision didn’t come lightly.

I talked to family and friends to get their advise, and was encouraged that they were all so supportive. After all, when was the last time you heard about a straight male coming out?

We just never make the news. Unlike other genders/persuasions, we are ignored in the mainstream news, and social media trends. Unlike:

World champion skier Gus Kenworthy, who won a silver medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, who recently has come out as gay.

Or, the revelation that Bruce Jenner came out as a transgender male and changed his name to Caitlyn.

Or, when Robin Roberts (Good Morning America anchor) came out as a lesbian at the very tail end of 2013.

On behalf of straight males everywhere, I would like someone more famous than I (that’s not hard) to step forward and “man up” about his sexual preferences so that straight guys everywhere can feel the love!

Time for me to walk on down the road…
