Good for her.
@tycobb: I've noticed this in some of the comments surrounding this article, I am about the most dense when it comes to the etiquette on these topics. Is it not offensive when so many people are saying "We always just assumed you were gay." somehow I don't think that is the desired reaction, but maybe it's operating a higher level of acceptance than I am familiar with... maybe I should just leave the thread.
I think in a lot of cases people just assume people are gay for X reason. I feel like every time someone comes out there was someone who apparently knew. I don't see what people gain out of it, cause there isn't a prize. Whether anyone knew or not isn't the point, coming out is a huge personal thing and I am very happy for her.
