Comedian Todd Glass Comes Out Of The Closet! Rising Youth Suicide Was The Last Straw!

Congratulations, Todd! Welcome to the gayborhood!!!! There's some wine in the fridge.

During an episode of podcast WTF With Marc Maron, comedian Todd Glass publicly announced he's gay.

Todd said he wanted to come out because he couldn't hide it anymore while so many teens and young adults were committing suicide to get away from the homophobic bullying.

He told Marc:

I cannot listen to stories about kids killing themselves any longer without thinking, 'When are you going to have a little blood on your shirt for not being honest about who you are?

I always say, if you are homophobic, you better be positive you're right. Because is it going to blow [that] all these kids are killing themselves, and that in 20 years, you get to write a book about how wrong you were. They're dead. So why don't you have a soul-searching moment now? Go into your house, shut the door, and make sure you're positive that you're making kids feel like crap for no good goddamn reason.

We're going to live to see where they're embarrassed about what they're saying. It's not going to happen in 50 years. In 10 years, they're going to have to show their grandchildren that, and look like fools. It's going to be mortifying!

Very well said!! Very well done, sir!

Like Sean Penn said in his acceptance speech at the 2009 Oscars, the grandchildren of today's homophobes will be reading about them in history books, embarrassed by their lack of willingness to understand those unlike them.

We're super proud of ya, Todd! Go celebrate!!!

    No one knows who this person is.

    Fucking Perez, always fucking wrong. It's Todd Glass, for fuck's sake, you linked to his goddamned website.

    Re: Gay Republican – You don't know who he is, people who enjoy comedy do.

    Who is to say the higher suicide rate is not just because gays are naturally bigger drama queens? I am all for gay rights, gay marriage, etc. Just sayin! I think the "bullying" angle is likely overblown.



  9. 9

    At least there is some people I like coming out. Not losers like Lance Bass and Ricky Martin.

    Wow, his name is Todd Glass. How about you try checking your facts?!?! This is pretty much the last straw for me. Not only am I sick of your completely bias and disrespectful political posts, but you are also completely unreliable. I have read your blog for a few years too many. However, you are a celebrity blogger-not a real journalist, so I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

    OMG! It's Todd Glass, you idiot! Learn how to check your shit!!!



  12. 12

    Re: eticket – You are an idiot.



  13. 13

    Who the hell is he??!



  14. 14

    I never even thought of Todd as gay or straight. Good for him. And he has a great podcast.

    Getting his name wrong and then correcting it after being called out really shows how little this guy means to you. It was just another opportunity for your anti-bullying agenda, you couldn't even make an effort to learn his name. Just another display of your phoniness and insincerity. Your main focus is yourself, and how you think you can stay relevant by appearing on trash shows like WWE or Bad Girls. Being booed by the crowd at WWE shows what the real public thinks of you. You're scum.

    I always thought that homophobia is the wrong word for what's being described. When I hear the word phobia, I think of extreme fear, like coulrophobia or claustrophobia. But the word homophobia is used to describe hate, and not fear.. Anyway, why is it that only the gay teens that kill themselves get the attention? What about those who simply can't handle the bullying and depression? Why are the gay teens anymore special than the "regular" teens that commit suicide? All the focus seems to be on those who were bullied because they were gay. Seems to me that those other kids are being forgotten!

    "gayborhood"?!?!? Seriously, you are always all for equality etc, but then you go and segregate yourself from heterosexuals by making up lame names for gay people collectively. If someone was to say i'm in the StraightLacedHeteroTheWayGodIntended club you'd be having a right hissy fit.

    Re: Queen92 – my neighbor and my friend's brother have killed themselves and they weren't gay. So i can see where you are coming from. However, in today's age more of the teen suicide rate is from the gay population. I dont see how you could ever say such a thing as them doing it for attention. You think by them coming out and being honest about themselves, knowing what is bound to happen that they would take their lives for it? That is where I have a problem. People who kill themselves are selfish, yes, but not in the sense they want attention. These kids cant be who they are and since things are getting easier at this moment it's their only way out. Unfortunately, any kid committing such a thing is heartbreaking, but when more and more kids that are gay are doing it, you best believe that is a bigger focus. As it should be!

    Re: shoelace1002 – you're offended over absolutely nothing. who cares if he separated himself into his own group. they are! clearly you dont understand today's issues of america…

    Wow Todd what a true piece of shit.
    You couldnt take it any more because of the poor, sad people who are tormented because they are gay yet I have repeatedly witnessed you heckle people in your audience till they cry for things like not looking at you for the entire act. Hope the 19 year old girl you made cry because she didnt laugh at every one of your bits didnt think about killing herself…
