Not all that big a bang: Jim Parsons comes out


Per my last Tweet. Sarcasm was at 1000% if you couldn't tell.

Reactions ranged from “so what?” to “well, DUH!” to “good for him.”



I thought everyone knew Jim Parsons was gay? Makes no difference to me – he's still an amazing actor and wonderful person. #jimparsonsftw

How did people not know that Jim Parsons was gay?
