Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, just announced today that he’s gay. In an article written for Bloomberg Businessweek, Tim Cook publicly talks about the importance of being homosexual for his life.
My first thought when I heard about this was “what the hell do I have to do with that?”. But you know what? I read the article and yes, I have to do with that. I’ll quote and you’ll understand why:
“I don’t consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I’ve benefited from the sacrifice of others. So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy.”
Whenever I see an image of a hot guy with a Macbook I save it to my computer (which is … a Macbook!). I do this because I love to create these meaningless categories for this blog. I already made a post with those pics before, and decided that some others could be good to illustrate this one.
Tim Cook’s article really touched me. It’s absolutely well written and the words he wrote are powerful. This post is nothing more than a homage to him, a big “thank you”. Not for me but for everyone else who is fighting against prejudice and that gained some comfort today.
This next lines are the ones that I most relate with. It’s so true:
“Being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day. It’s made me more empathetic, which has led to a richer life. It’s been tough and uncomfortable at times, but it has given me the confidence to be myself, to follow my own path, and to rise above adversity and bigotry.”
I swear I don’t get commissions by Apple, but I hope this post convinces you to buy a Macbook in case you don’t have one. Both for Tim Cook’s example and for the horny guys in the pictures!
I’ll leave you with the last sentence of Tim Cook’s article:
“We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick.”
