In some settings being atheist is "worse" than being gay.  I don't know about tech industry.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on October 30, 2014 at 7:10pm

So....

If Apple is the Scientology of tech companies, does that make Tim Cook a gay L Ron Hubbard?

 

Apple is far too intrusive into the lives and information of all of it's customers, for me to think too many good things about it.  Cool, Cook is "family".  I wish "family" wasn't so dysfunctional.

 

I suppose, coming out after he has proven himself successful at running one of the most successful companies in the world, was a risky thing.  They might have fired him.

Good news/bad news


Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, penned an article in Bloomberg Businessweek officially revealing his sexual orientation.


http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-10-30/tim-cook-im-proud-t...


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.

 

 


What a strange scene. Don't mess with Texans in an airport, anyway.

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:

When MAITE had her first girlfriend at 16, many thought she was just EXPERIMENTING. It may as well have been the case, but MAITE can't recall EVER hearing that her sister was simply going through a PHASE when she had her first BOYFRIEND. (Carol Rossetti)(click to enlarge)

(See many more at Buzzfeed, or see The Women Project at the artist's website)

Pretty shocking, he watches British people. "I don't want to stop".  He'll be sorry.  Better if he was gay
