Rickie mentioned in Gawker article about gay teens on tv

Gawker has a short article about gay teens on tv that mentions Rickie. My two quibbles: Rickie's name is misspelled, and he was gay, not gay-ish. I don't remember it being "sort of a big deal" (except by Patty), but I don't recall a huge media storm about Rickie being gay.
Remember when Ricky was gay-ish on My So-Called Life and it was sort of a big deal? Well those days are over. There are several gay teen characters currently on the air, and no one's saying boo.
