If Apple is the Scientology of tech companies, does that make Tim Cook a gay L Ron Hubbard?
Apple is far too intrusive into the lives and information of all of it's customers, for me to think too many good things about it. Cool, Cook is "family". I wish "family" wasn't so dysfunctional.
I suppose, coming out after he has proven himself successful at running one of the most successful companies in the world, was a risky thing. They might have fired him.
Tim Cook cont.
From San Jose Mercury News
Other prominent reactions:
"From one son of the South and sports fanatic to another, my hat's off to you, @Tim_cook." - Former President Bill Clinton, on Twitter
"Thank you Tim for showing what it means to be a real, courageous and authentic leader." - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
"Our friend Tim Cook spoke out today -- and will help a lot of people by doing so. Leadership takes courage and we all applaud him as a leader and as a friend." - Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg
"Bravo." - Twitter CEO Dick Costolo
"@tim_cook = Courageous. Proud to work for you and be your friend." - Apple executive Philip Schiller
"Respect." - Marc Andreessen, of Andreessen Horowitz, on Twitter
"If leadership is the ability to inspire others to achieve shared objectives, @tim_cook embodied that today." - LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner
Good news/bad news
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, penned an article in Bloomberg Businessweek officially revealing his sexual orientation.
He spoke with some wisdom:
Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day. It’s made me more empathetic, which has led to a richer life. It’s been tough and uncomfortable at times, but it has given me the confidence to be myself, to follow my own path, and to rise above adversity and bigotry. It’s also given me the skin of a rhinoceros, which comes in handy when you’re the CEO of Apple.
The bad news - he said "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
Ya win some, ya lose some.
It's very disturbing how situations like that can escalate so quickly. But it's really great to see innocent bystanders stepping up to the plate and helping out without hesitation. In fact the one guy, in the cowboy hat, initially took it upon himself to try and subdue the situation by talking.
This video shows just how vulnerable we can be in any type of environment.
Crazy guy in Dallas airport attacks man he thinks is gay "Because America". Bystanders pile on and subdue him.
Just in case anyone's missed this one:
Support gay marriage or we will marry your girlfriends.
From Brazilian artist Carol Rossetti's powerful series Mulheres / Women:

(See many more at Buzzfeed, or see The Women Project at the artist's website)
Pretty shocking, he watches British people. "I don't want to stop". He'll be sorry. Better if he was gay
"What if you had to come out smart the way you come out gay?"
(In light of the disturbing anti-intellectualism in some currents of American politics, I'm also sharing this video in "The Results Are In: America Is Dumb and on the Road to Getting Dumber".)
