The problem with that statement was he didn't really have an orientation. He clearly stated he was a male and used the male bathroom. So he obviously felt "male". I would have actually understood if he felt "female" and dressed that way. But if you feel male and dreesed that way, you are looking for attention.... He got it. Yes I feel bad for him, but if you are going "put yourself out there" then you have to be tough enough to face the consequences. On a different subject. I wish they would show more of the good singers instead of all the bad ones. I really wish the producers (the people who select who sees the judges) would send only the good ones. For every bad one that gets to be in front of the judges, there is a potentially great singer who didnt get the chance.
