Meredith Baxter Birney is a lesbian, and here's why I care

I'm not a fan of celebrity sexuality spotlights or even of coming out stories. The celebrity focus tends to be so sensationalist and coming out stories can encourage closeted people to come out when it may not be in their best interest to do so. So, why am I not grouchy or yawning about MBB's coming out? It's complicated. First read the piece in The Advocate. Next, watch her interview with Matt on The Today Show: ...more

I ate dinner at my desk, since I was still working, so I wasn't privy to most of the discussion. I just caught a bit of it on my way to the bathroom... I heard Liz (10) ask why anyone would want to participate in National Day of Silence... when she was asked why she wouldn't, "Freedom of speech, duh!" ...more
