It's been kind of a mixed bag for athletes making the difficult decision to come out as gay. It helps to have Hermione on your side.

Keegan Hirst recently broke many boundaries, coming out as Britain's first openly gay rugby player. For a macho guy in a macho sport with macho teammates and macho fans, it wasn't the easiest of decisions. He's received a lot of support for the decision, marking even more how much the world has grown in a short time.

And in a beautiful and classy move, Emma Watson congratulated Hirst in a series of tweets Aug. 18.









Hirst spoke to the Daily Mirror about coming out Aug. 15.

Respected prop Keegan, 27, reveals the secret torment of dealing with his sexuality while carving out a career in one of the world's most macho sports.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Mirror, the dad of two tells of the moment he finally found the words to explain to his wife the reason they could no longer be together.

And he talks emotionally of the support he got, not only from her but also from his rugby team-mates.

The 6ft 4in captain of West ­Yorkshire side Batley Bulldogs said: "At first I couldn't even say 'I'm gay' in my head, let alone out loud.

"Now I feel like I'm letting out a long breath that I've held in for a long time."



Societal attitudes take a long time to evolve, but that evolution couldn't happen without people like Hirst taking initiative and influential people like Watson supporting them.

Well done, everyone.

In case you were wondering, supermodel Chrissy Teigan does in fact NOT live off a diet of cheese dust from Doritos.

She made this very clear on Twitter today, clarifying a statement she made in a recent interview.

"I lick off the nacho cheese seasoning and put the [Doritos] back in the bag. You get all the flavor, not all the carbs," she told Delish.com.

But apparently people thought that was literally all she eats.

And there you have it. Chrissy Teigan doesn't solely subsist on Dorito nacho cheese. Bummer.

If you're upset, here's a GIF to cheer you right up.

Iggy Azalea has a weird Twitter feud with a superhero fan site.

Iggy Azalea on Twitter is like the bizzaro J.K. Rowling on Twitter.

They both should have far better things to do with their time and money, yet both actively engage with apparently whomever reaches out to them on the social network. The difference is that Rowling likes to set fans straight and guide them to better understanding, whereas Azalea just picks fights.

Last night, the Twitter account SuperheroFeed made this rather lame joke, just cause:



For whatever reason, Iggy decided to set things straight.



That would not stand for the honorable heroes of Superhero Feed. They felt the dire need to stand up and defend themselves.



They referred to the reports that Iggy had a lot of help writing her breakout hit Fancy.

Azalea then, again for whatever reason felt the need to drop the mic:



After pushing way back a concert tour and dealing with a flopped summer song with more Twitter feuds, you'd think Azalea would spend her time scheming on how to avoid that great, yawning pit of mediocrity that reaches for her career.

Everyone's gotta pick their own fights.



Twitter deity, and great comedian, Patton Oswalt took one for the American team Aug. 6 and live-tweeted his perspective on the first Repbublican primary debate.

The enormous affair hosted the top 10 candidates highest in the polls. It gave a scant two hours for them to differentiate themselves from each other and attempt to not talk about the rich elephant in the room — Donald Trump.

The hashtag #NewHarryPotterBooks trended last night, and left a lot of people hopeful, bewildered, confused and then very, very angry.

It was all part of an @Midnight hashtag game meant to come up with humorous (fake) Harry Potter books.

But Harry Potter fans didn't take it as a joke. And they let everyone feel their anger.
