Response to Behind the Aegis (Original post)

1. Why being closeted is not a good thing.

I'm old enough to remember when the defense against gays was that they'd be subject to blackmail, because of course, back then, no one was out. This was in the 70s, and I recall quite clearly thinking that if someone was openly gay, they couldn't possibly be blackmailed.

So why is it, nearly 50 years later, people are still in the closet?
