First [fill in occupation] gay person!

So some basketball player announced to the world that he's gay and it's considered major news? Seriously? That gets reporters typing away? Unless he was known as a total womanizer before, that is not news and I wish we'd stop treating it as such. Our cultural obsession with people's sexual prefixes has gone on far too long.

Gays, you're not helping either. Everyone knows you exist so stop with the "coming out" already! It's just weird. And so 1990s. You remember the '90s — the era of women's music, recycling and celebrating gayness. Well if you didn't come out then, too late. In the 21st century, you're just plain old gay if you're gay. That's how it should be anyway. But it won't be that way until gay people stop turning their sexuality into a thing and everyone else stops acting like it's a thing.

The next time anyone makes a public announcement about whether they prefer penis or vagina, I wish the world would issue a collective yawn and move on to the next trending topic.
