Kerry Rhodes: Gay or Straight? Who Cares?

She Matters: It's really none of our business whether a celebrity is in the closet or not.

I also blame all the women who bought into the hype and irrationally suspect the men who don't fit some alpha male stereotype, or are not fashion queens, for continuously spreading the DL hysteria. It's like the irony escapes them that down-low behavior persists because of all the horrible things that are said about gay men anytime someone mentions the words "down low" (as if all gay men fall into that category).

Whomever he is into, I support Rhodes. I hope he's on the receiving end of the comfort he graciously wished upon others.
