Bonzai-

Not "coming out" is not active deception,


Yes, it is active deception, because it is making an issue out of something that should not be of concern, and it allowing people to assume the default - that you are straight.

In an ideal world people shouldn't have to "come out". We should all just mind our own business.


But this isn't an ideal world, and treating homosexuality as something to hide continues to make it so.
