    One word ..... desperation

    No one under 45 ever heard of him. No one over 45 remembers him.

    People need to become themselves in their own time, Mr.B! Sometimes seniors feel they want to identify themselves while still here on earth after a lifetime of feeling ashamed. Tough news for some of the djt fans and Christian right types, but Williams has a weight off their shoulders now.

    Oh, PLENTY of people care, JRob! Just look at news footage of maga rallies or take a scan at LGBTQ+ news from the Caribbean, Middle East or Eastern Bloc countries.

    I agree with you, Peace N Harmony. I think this was a brave thing to do.

    Responding to the comment, "Why wait until now?" Well, to be fair, how many people were coming out as gender fluid 50 years ago, let alone 10 years ago? Very little, because we did not have the same understanding and level of acceptance that we have now. Also, I think his story will serve as an inspiration to all people, to say that it's never too late to live as your authentic self. It's too bad that some of the people in this thread seem unable to understand that.

    Every sentence is perfectly stated, Carlo. Best to you and thanks for your understanding.

    In Canada, we might say ďohĒ and the day after would not give it a second thought

    Hopefully Billy Dee grabs some viagra and does whatever it is he might be interested in doing

    But itís true - Iím not sure thereís been an understanding of gender fluid for more than a few years

    I thought "gender fluid" was something completely different than is being discussed here...

    I hope he feels better for revealing this news. Happiness is a precious commodity. I wish him well.

    One can merely scan roughly half the replies here and see the necessity for those in the public eye to be truthful about themselves and in doing so perhaps lead some to less ignorant opinions.

    Hear, hear. First and foremost the fact that gender identity has nothing to do with sexual orientation. Humanity has got a lot of homework to do on this score. Brava/bravo, Billy Dee.

    I could count the number of LGBTQ folks that voted for President Pus*y Grabber on one hand.

    The other words. Very brave.

    Coincidence: 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer' is being broadcast while I read new posts to this thread.
    Irony: The subject of RRtRNR is tolerance of non-conformists and misfits and recognition of individual abilities and accomplishments.
    Fact: Since its original broadcast in 1964 who knows how many millions have seen this program and sang along to its songs.
    Conclusion: What percentage of viewers actually learned anything from watching it?

    Good gosh ! Are you sure you counted correctly ??? That would be only one vote per subgroup!!! One L , One G , One B , One T , and One Q voted for Trump?!!!! Could that be????... LOL!!!!

    Well then the good news is , as Trump's approval rating keeps building amongst the freethinkers found within every voting faction , he surely can as much as double those numbers this next time around !! LOL!!!!

    President Pus*y Grabbers approval rating sits at a 43% average so his approval aint building.

    I posted a reply to you Roberta, but deleted it. If I get into politics in this forum, Ralph will surely have to ban me. Let's talk about Martha instead. Let the snowflakes fall when and where they will.

    This is what people dislike about the media today - so much is made of so little, so exaggerated

    Gender Fluid is what happens to someone who is drinking too much of the hard stuff! Ha Ha!🐌
