    Look, it's admirable that Collins had the courage to come out.  But I do have sympathy for Moos at the same time, something the diary completely overlooks.  After all, when you're with someone for 8 years, and are engaged to be married, you have certain expectations about the future, a future with someone who is really supposed to be a best friend as well as a love.  She had those expectations, and they were rather unceremoniously yanked away.

    It's not the fact that Collins was gay, per se.  It's the fact that the nature of his and Moos' relationship changed so suddenly, and affected Moos so profoundly.  It's the fact that he allowed Moos' expectations of their relationship to build for so long.  Kurtz might be a jerk at times, but he's not completely wrong here.

    If being gay were more accepted, this kind of thing would happen a lot less frequently, and guys like Kurtz would have less to write about.

    The road to Hell is paved with pragmatism.
