Robin Roberts

P.S. I'm Gay

12/30/2013 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

robin-roberts-gettyRobin Roberts just officially came out of the closet ... telling the world she's gay and has a longtime girlfriend.

Robin just recounted her triumphs over the last year on her Facebook page ... talking about her battle with cancer and how she overcame the odds and regained her health.

In the middle of her Facebook essay she said, "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

It's kind of cool the way she did it, she didn't scream it from the mountain tops ... but she revealed her true self in an authentic way.

Good for Robin.

P.S.

I sleep with the opposite sex.

What the BIG Freakin Deal?

And why do you have to 'Announce' to complete strangers, your personal sexual choice?

Anyone else feel some 'Compulsion' to do so?
I sure don't, but if you do.....

Why?

Truth    

It's only a "surprise" to us non-liberals because most of us don't obsess over "what" someone is. That's what liberals do. They can't put two sentences together without one of them being about race/gay.

With a big heart and love for people.....homosexuality is wrong. I'm sure Robin is a nice person. Staying true to my beliefs. Shout out to people who stand by traditional family values!

As a breast cancer survivor, I felt the same when I was forced to come out as straight.
