Good news/bad news
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, penned an article in Bloomberg Businessweek officially revealing his sexual orientation.
He spoke with some wisdom:
Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day. It’s made me more empathetic, which has led to a richer life. It’s been tough and uncomfortable at times, but it has given me the confidence to be myself, to follow my own path, and to rise above adversity and bigotry. It’s also given me the skin of a rhinoceros, which comes in handy when you’re the CEO of Apple.
The bad news - he said "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
Ya win some, ya lose some.
It's very disturbing how situations like that can escalate so quickly. But it's really great to see innocent bystanders stepping up to the plate and helping out without hesitation. In fact the one guy, in the cowboy hat, initially took it upon himself to try and subdue the situation by talking.
This video shows just how vulnerable we can be in any type of environment.
Crazy guy in Dallas airport attacks man he thinks is gay "Because America". Bystanders pile on and subdue him.
Just in case anyone's missed this one:
Support gay marriage or we will marry your girlfriends.
From Brazilian artist Carol Rossetti's powerful series Mulheres / Women:

Pretty shocking, he watches British people. "I don't want to stop". He'll be sorry. Better if he was gay
"What if you had to come out smart the way you come out gay?"
(In light of the disturbing anti-intellectualism in some currents of American politics, I'm also sharing this video in "The Results Are In: America Is Dumb and on the Road to Getting Dumber".)
Marriage equality in the US (as of today), with state sizes adjusted for population... makes the red states that still have marriage bans a lot less imposing!
(Colors as in Wikipedia's map. Click to enlarge somewhat.)
Burke should be taken at his word, e.g. children should not be exposed to "profoundly disordered" relationships. Ergo, children should not be exposed to the Catholic clergy.
