Imo, being 'closeted' gay is a product of culture, someday, when our culture pays no more mind to ones sex life than it does to ones eye color, being 'in the closet' will be far rarer.
Otoh, being 'closeted' (or openly) fascist is a sickness and arguably a matter of choice.
Which begs the question, how much better would America be if those who actively believe that being gay is a choice, instead believed that being fascist is a choice. I can imagine Christian anti-fascist intervention programs, the end of the gop, hell maybe even the odd bakery that openly refuses to sell wedding cakes to openly fascist couples. I could live in a country like that!
