I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out that George Takei, aka Sulu of Star Trek fame, is *gasp*...gay. Yes he came out of the closet recently to the surprise of no one.
This sort of reminds me of the time Rosie O'Donnell came out. I remember thinking "well yeah? Didn't she already come out?"
I remember being kind of taken aback when Rob Halford came out of the closet. I used to be a big Judas Priest fan and even though the guy wore the leather S&M outfits and ridiculous hats I had no idea. Of course I was like 12 and someone's sexuality never even crossed my mind. Strange that it does now though.
Everyone has some sort of gaydar. Mine is just broken.
