    First off, I like Glee. It's a good show and it has had repeatedly good criticism. Jane Lynch, as you all know, is gay and is also now married. And her role of Sue S. has also had its fair share of good criticism and, in all honesty, she's one of the best characters.
    Seriously, Newsweek just needs to apologize, because, sure, some straight roles have been shredded by gay actors/actresses. But, that doesn't mean you need to openly criticize them all the time.

    newsweek should just apologize, and the writer should learn that what he's says (whether purposefully or not) will hurt some people's feelings. he needs to be more considerate of his audience. it's just common courtesy.

    I'm not sure if I'm missing something here, but no A list gay movie stars? Is Sir Ian Mckellan not A-List? I've regularly seen him playing non-stereotypical parts, and I'm pretty sure that alot of people consider him a damn good actor!

    So many self hating hemosexuals...what the hell is that point of that? Unless they're gay posers waiting to jump to the straight boat when they've locked in some unsuspecting hetro. Sneaky bastards.

    Don't those who say "It's freedom of speech, people" realize that freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from criticism? Don't they realize boycotters have freedom of speech as well?

    There's no UNCLOSETED A-list gay actor in Hollywood because of people like Satoodeh who make life miserable for uncloseted gay actors, and accuse them of being unable to do their jobs. There ARE A-list gay actors, but they're in the closet. They know the straight public would turn against them if it knew, and that self-hating gays like Satoodeh would cheer the public on.

    Why is there no gay A-List actors or actresses in Hollywood? Because they all suck. It's the truth, who wants to see Rosie O'Donnell in a film role of any kind?

    And for the argument about Neil Patrick Harris? I don't know if he is a good actor or not because only lonely females and gay people actually watch his joke of a television show.

    There you have it. Leave the makeup and wardrobe jobs for the gay people and let the 93% of America (heterosexuals) watch other heterosexuals in heterosexual roles.
