Betty White “I don’t care with whom you sleep, I just care what kind of a decent human being you are.”

In a followup interview done by  Huffington Post’s Chris Harnick after legendary actress Betty White met with President Obama today.  Betty was asked about her status as a gay icon which spans from the 1970’s suring  her stint on the Mary Tyler Moore Show as the man hungry “Happy Homemaker” Sue Anne Nivens to today.

Said White:

Oh! I didn’t know I was a gay icon. I get a lot of mail — but I don’t get many  bad letters — but I got a woman the other day that was so upset with me because  they said, “How do you feel about the gay marriage thing?” and my answer to that  is, “I really don’t care with whom you sleep, I just care what kind of a decent  human being you are.” I figure all the rest of it is your business and not mine.  And not hers, incidentally.

Two words describe Betty White.
