    Guy outed by Best Buy

    It seems like Best Buy is just missing it over and over...

    Apparently a guy took his phone to get worked on and someone determined his sexual orientation and outed him. Not nice!

    I mean, that's not cool and all, but him making a big deal out of it is making it exponentially worse.

    Methinks he doth protest too much...

    Quite possibly, he is getting his name on national media though.

    So do you think it is worse if the person is gay or is it worse if he is not?

    Definitely worse to out a gay person. If someone hacked my whatever account and wrote "I'm coming out because I'm so gay" I'd erase it, change my password and go on with my day. I certainly wouldn't be worried about explaining to those who knew me what happened.

    It's worse that someone feels the need to snoop in someone else's phone and then decide to share that information.

    I won't debate that point, but do you believe it is worse if the person outed is gay or worse if they are not?

    Both are equally inconsiderate and ignorant.

    I would prefer to believe that one is inconsiderate and the other is ignorant.

    Believe whatever you like. To reveal either is uncalled for.
