Sally Ride has chosen to come out of the closet, posthumously.
I personally could care less, and it was certainly no one’s business but her own who knew, and when. She was a great lady, astronaut, and X-ray astrophysicist. That’s all that matters.
But I hope the kind of people who find this sort of thing unsettling (you all know who you are) are appropriately unsettled by this news.
Yo, Sally! You go, girl.
