Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has come out as being Gay while he attends a talk at Tsinghua University in Beijing.. The thing is, Tim has been out for a while he just never made an official announcement about it.
During his meeting he says:
While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.
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.
How can you compare and understand about being black in America because you are gay? …. He really don’t and will never suffer the same as blacks have and still do. I hate when they try to compare themselves to African American’s and the Civil Rights movement… Just sickening! I’m all for coming out, but know your role and quit trying to throw pity parties, by comparing yourselves to things you know nothing about….
