Micky & Tavi:
Coming out has MANY benefits, but I think one of the most important ones is removing some of the burden that we carry. Every time we tell someone who we really are, it lightens that load a bit and it is one less person that we have to posture for.
Rachel Maddow has a saying:
“The single best thing about coming out of the closet is that nobody can insult you by telling you what you’ve just told them.”
