>>> Eloquent cartoon that says it all - thanks. <<< Indeed, this cartoon says a LOT. Every single day, individuals who have chosen dangerous careers or have volunteered for dangerous assignments risk their lives to help strangers, with nary a peep of recognition. Some guy says he's gay, and he's a hero for the ages. In this scenario is a treasure trove of information about contemporary society and its values.

Snippet: I agree with your statement of other courageous individuals not being recognized. The courage that Collins showed was in putting his career, livelihood, personal and family relationships in danger of being destroyed by simply saying that this is what I am. Thank you Steve Sacks!!!

marcymmb, that's kind of the point. He's a celebrity. It brings more recognition to the issue than when a "regular person" does it; but they all have courage to speak against the grain and be free in who they are. I'm also not a professional athlete, but I would imagine that the testosterone-fueled lives they lead would not usually condone this kind of person... maybe now they will.

Snippet: By your reasoning Rosa Parks was not a hero simply because she road a bus. After all everybody does that.

>>> Snippet: By your reasoning Rosa Parks was not a hero simply because she road a bus. After all everybody does that. <<< She rode on the front of the bus. NOT everyone who was black did that. That took guts.

"She rode on the front of the bus. NOT everyone who was black did that. That took guts." ---- And not one man whether black, white, yellow or any other color you can think of, who was actively engaged in the macho world of sports has openly stated that he is gay. This took courage! Sack was not saying that courage can't be found in other people for other reasons as obviously there are many courageous people among us but Sack's cartoon is still correct in this instance.
