come out as gay whos to say his politics would change Whats more whos to say that one cant be openly gay and vote the way Schock does I know many gay Republicans and the claim that all of them are hypocrites which is Hods implication whether or not he is aware of it is misguided Unless Schock was outed as a Democrat I dont think the word "hypocrite" is warranted (MORE: Supreme Court Halts Gay Marriage in Utah) Some might argue that because Schock “lied” and flatly denied gay rumors he deserves to be outed But this line of reasoning turns on a very limited outdated understanding of sexuality Sexuality is fluid and many of our sexual experiences confirm this Even if Schock and a buddy were caught in the shower together doing something more than conserving water does that necessarily mean both men are gay Maybe theyre bisexual Maybe theyre hypersexual Maybe theyre experimental Maybe theyre straight MSM (men who have sex with men) As David Halperin deftly argues in How to Be Gay the word "gay" connotes much more than homosexual activity "Gay" is a name to be announced not a label to be assigned When we reduce that label to designate nothing more than genital sex we do a disservice to the queer experience which begins in the affirmation that people have the freedom to name themselves as they wish This is why outing someone whether or not as Hod argues its the ethical thing to do is never the queer thing to do I can certainly understand why some LGBTs would want to out celebrities and politicians in the attempt at gaining increased visibility But I wonder if limited visibility is really the problem I dont think even the staunchest anti-gay voter is unaware of our numbers although he might be confused by our conflicted message: dont shame us well do the shaming Perhaps we should worry less about being seen and more about how were being seen Schock is in a precarious situation Whether he announces his gayness or affirms his straightness any comment he makes on his sexuality will no doubt be fodder for gay journalists to further shame him Hod and others are pointing a proverbial gun at Schocks head daring him to come out but daring him not to The irony of course is that these gay critics are the same ones warning us that shaming a person for being gay can cause him to point a very real gun at his own head As David Carr reminds us in an essay on the ethics of outing "now that gay marriage is a fact of life a persons sexual orientation is not only not news its not very interesting" Even if his conclusion is overstated Carrs is a welcome reminder of the progress we often forget weve made A persons gayness isnt a talking point and his alleged gayness ought never be since it takes us back to an era when it was culturally acceptable to shame a gay person as a curious oddity With or without cute innuendo journalists who accuse celebrities of being gay are probably better suited to write in Victorian England than 21st-century America

study says that the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico could have led to potentially lethal heart defects in yellowfin amberjack yellowfin tuna and bluefin tuna three economically important fish species To conduct the study which was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday scientists recreated the contaminated sea environment with samples from the BP oil spill and introduced fish larvae to it They found that the fish exhibited a number of heart defects which could lead either to death or a slower swimming pace "So they are either going to get eaten or they wont be able to eat enough" says co-author John Incardona research toxicologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration “That leads to reduced survival” The study comes three months after scientists announced that Louisiana dolphins face lung disease and low birthrates following the spillage of more than 636 million liters of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico Peter Hodson a fish toxicologist unconnected to the recent study told The Verge that it was a "tour de force" for researchers to manage to keep the larvae alive long enough to study the oils effects However a BP spokesperson said that "the paper provides no evidence to suggest a population-level impact" The bluefin tuna population in the Gulf of Mexico is already struggling from overfishing and water
