Because I want to challenge people on their homophobia. I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I'm gay, and I say, "So what does it matter if I am? So be it. I hope you are not voting for me because you are making the presumption that I'm straight."
In support of his saying that he is straight regarding sexuality, Cory opened that he had an ex-girlfriend who destroyed him regarding masculinity and turned him into manicure and pedicure.
