Not funny. Sad that there even is the term "come out of the closet" as though their identity ever needed to be hidden in the first place.
my cousin is gay. we all always knew, no biggie, and it was a lot like that when he came out: a lot of "yeah, so? everyone knows."
still seems to be a big relief for the person to get it off their chest, though, and i'm all for anything that makes a person happier with their own being.
The situation is funny.
But should always be dealt with with honesty and respect.
in high school i felt slighted because a certain girl never hit on me. i found out later she thought she was in the closet.
I never liked closets and closed boxes.
