    Default Masterchef - Mindy

    I was reading new idea or some mag liek that today and it had a little story/thing about the top 6.

    For Mindy it talked about her being gay and it got me thinking - is this still really news worthy?

    We don't discuss anyone being straight so I really don't get it - sure maybe yrs ago it was more relevant to discuss / create awareness but its its like a non event these days?? I find it kinda offensive - like her s3xuality needs to be discussed because its different to 'normal' or am I off the mark??

    I will add a poll because im curious what everyone else thinks (and I know its not a real news article its just a trash magazine but yeh it got me thinking)

    Offensive, yes
    But yes it still happens

    I've found a lot of celebs announce it more matter of fact hese days, but the media always tries to make a bit of a circus around it

    Yeah I don't think many people our age care or consider it newsworthy, but a lot in my mother's generation still do - it used to be so scandalous I guess...

    I thought news was things that are not everyday normal. Homosexuality is to me normal so certainly not news worthy to me.

    I do however think she may be a good role model for young people confused about their own sexuality.

    She obviously raised it in the interview, otherwise they would never have known to discuss it. Shouldn't be newsworthy though, I agree.

    I'm also surprised though, because I thought she had been flirting with some of the guys! She constantly calls them 'babe' too which gives me the sh!ts.
