    Interesting article on the topic, particularly in reference to clergy trying to keep their homosexuality under wraps.

    Damaging Effects for Gays of the ‘Closet’

    One of many interesting paragraphs:

    as is this one:

    And just an observation....those in the closet must become chronic liars in order to live the lie.

    It's a sad thing....and apparently almost impossible to keep up the act forever....thus the stories that keep popping up in the news.

    Just imagine the psychological damage of living a lie....and the splash damage to those around one.

    Everything tidy, color coordinated and in its place.

    Exactly. There's a lot that is never addressed on that front.

    I also wonder, with acceptance becoming more widespread, if more will come out? I hope so. I can't imagine living like that .... but some may always feel they have no choice (for whatever reason).

    Will they ever stop whining about the... sniff, sniff... burden of living in the greatest most tolerant Country in the world?

    Where is the whining? Kindly point it out.

    BTW..the article is from the UK....are you saying the UK is more tolerant that the US?

    Who gives a crap about UK articles except whiny Americans who never stop complaining about the burden of living in the greatest Country in the world? Go to the Muslem countries and see how well homosexuals are treated.

    Being in the closest doesn't lead to psychological damage. Psychological damage leads to being a fag.

    Bodecea, maybe you should come out of the closet and admit to everyone that you're dog ugly? It would be mentally healthy to do, right?
