Apologizing to all the ladies, professional wrestler "Money" Matt Cage announced on his Facebook page that he is gay.
He came out to friends as bisexual in 2013. He said that he is now ready to admit he is exclusively into men, and he wants the world to know.
"I have no real intentions of pursuing females at this stage of my life," he wrote. "I still find beautiful women beautiful. I don't think that'll ever change. But I think that to continue to claim something that's not true is just continuing a streak [of] dishonesty and I don't want that. Sorry, ladies. I'm officially pulling myself off of the market. Don't hate me too bad."
Sure, some women might be pissed, but a whole lot of men are ready to take their place.
"I truly have nothing to hide anymore," he added. "I spent the majority of my life lying, hiding and depressed because I felt like I couldn't truly be who I wanted to be and live freely as I saw fit. I had to act and that's not me. I, nor anyone else, should have to do that."
A few days ago, a small controversy erupted after leaked e-mails from Sony revealed that the company has very strict rules about how Spider-Man can be portrayed onscreen. He must white and he must be straight.
Stan Lee, Spider-Man's creator, is now adding his voice to the debate. He thinks Sony is right.
“I wouldn’t mind, if Peter Parker had originally been black, a Latino, an Indian or anything else, that he stay that way,” he said. “But we originally made him white. I don’t see any reason to change that.”
As for being gay, Lee added: “I think the world has a place for gay superheroes, certainly. But again, I don’t see any reason to change the sexual proclivities of a character once they’ve already been established. I have no problem with creating new, homosexual superheroes.
“It has nothing to do with being anti-gay, or anti-black, or anti-Latino, or anything like that. Latino characters should stay Latino. The Black Panther should certainly not be Swiss. I just see no reason to change that which has already been established when it’s so easy to add new characters. I say create new characters the way you want to. Hell, I’ll do it myself.”
Fine, Spider-Man can be white and straight ... but there doesn't seem to be a rule against him being a nudist with a massive Spidey-schlong.
