Tim Cook out the closet
This morning, Bloomberg Businessweek Technology published an essay by Apple’s Tim Cook speaking out on his sexuality for the first time. Here is an excerpt from the essay:

“For years, I’ve been open with many people about my sexual orientation. Plenty of colleagues at Apple know I’m gay, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me. Of course, I’ve had the good fortune to work at a company that loves creativity and innovation and knows it can only flourish when you embrace people’s differences. Not everyone is so lucky.

“While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.”

Apple is the manufacturer of the iPhone and iPad mobile devices.


  1. I’m Proud To Be Gay, And I Consider Being Gay Among The Greatest Gifts God Has Given Me.

    That Statement Can Only Be The Product Of A Deranged Mind.

    It Is Not Surprising.. Most Of The True Geniuses Have A Couple Of Screws Loose.. It Takes Ingenuity To Sell A Subpar Product And Still Make Millions Lust After It Like Dogs After A Juicy Bone.

    Becky Anderson, Nick Robertson, Tim Cook..

    Openly Gay Celebrities, Hmmm..

    Rscently Learnt Arnold Schwarzenegger Was A Porn Actor….And He Still Became Governor Of California…Only In Obodo Oyinbo!

    I Doubt If Such A Thing Could Happen In Nigeria Where (Hypocrotical) Sanctimony Is Often Mixed With Some Subliminal Doses Of Theocracy.

    Let Someone Vying For An Important Elective Position, Here, Make A Pronouncement Similar To Tim Cook’s!

    All These Just Give Off A Rancid Smell.

    Am Outta Here!

  2. Like someone said on a social network, quite a number of very successful guys are gay. So guys, set that yansh!

  3. So, it means that if you buy or use Apple products (Mac, iPhone, iPad, etc), you are invariably supporting homosexuality.

  4. So, it also means that if you buy or use Google, Microsoft, IBM products or flown in a Boeing, you are invariably supporting homosexuality as these companies, including Apple are among the top 10 gay friendly companies (means they have slots to employ gay staff).
    Oh well, I’ll just go get me a Zinox Computer. At least its Nigerian and I’m sure no gays are involved in the making of that product.
    Damn!!! I almost forgot, the father of modern day computers (Alan Turing) was gay. Going for the abacus.
