  1. God, these Repubicans seem such hypocrites! It seems they’re all “at it” yet when it comes to pro Gay legislation they vote against it? What a total buch of wasters and hypocrites the lot of them.

    Roberto, the bulk of all these closet cases always turn out to be republicans (conservatives) of the worst kind. They have more than a million gay supporters in the form of an organisation called the Log Cabin who are not interested in equal rights but more in their accumulated wealth, possessions, second homes and tax breaks for themselves and to hell with the rest of us. No wonder their party engenders so much self-loathing. They are all “wannabe” straights and make up the majority of what has now come to be called “ex-gays”. Sad, sad, sad.

  3. Hi ex-pat Robert. We have people like the Log Cabinists here as well stuffed away in high positions – until they too are exposed.So much hypocrisy.

    Roberto, doesn’t surprise me, every society must have them, some are more obvious than others, but the majority are usually closeted, ashamed and vote for antigay legislation. How sicker can it get? I’m sure there are far more in the Tory party than in the Labour party though and plenty to go around in the C of E clergy too I would think. They all deserve to be outed when they vote against us while living a life of lies, deception and hypocrisy.

    Hillary Clinton’s chokehold on the nomination means she’ll be the next president unless she or the Democrats repeat the phenomenal blunders that were a trademark of their 2000 and 2004 campaigns. She’s moved to the right, hoping she can take the left vote for granted. The icing on the cake for Hillary is the unending Republican sex show. Curtis’s escapades with rented boys in sex shops wearing panties are the latest. For closeted and conservative queers life is a nightmare concoction of fear and frustration of their own making. Stephanie Coontz, noted leftist scholar on sex roles says “For people who take an old testament approach homosexuality is so dissonant from their notion of morality that they have to lie 98% of the time.” Robert Jay-Green of the San Francisco anti gaybashing group Rockway Institute agrees, saying “They risk losing their careers, their family, and the cost is so high for them to accept their same-sex attractions that many of them are still remain closeted. And being closeted is like being in prison.” It’s also as old as time. James Buchanan, the ‘bachelor” president was followed in 1860 by Abe Lincoln, whose bedmates were men and who compared his marriage to ‘Purgatory.” Often the closet produces real monsters. J. Edgar “Mary” Hoover used to shoehorn himself out of this lace undies and frock and waddle down to FBI HQ where he ordered the arrest of ‘reds’ and ‘faggots’. Dozens of Democrat and Republican legislators, mayors, White House staffers, shills and lobbyists have been caught sneaking a taste of hustlers, boys, and being ensnared in the huge police entrapment apparatus, which is a billion dollar industry in the US.

  6. How can this happen in this day and age? Why cant people be themselves? Why live in hypcrisy?

    It happens because right wingers and conservatives value their wealth and position above all else and are ready to wreck their sanity and lie to their families. How many of them have given AIDS to their wives? Or sons?On the flip side, because their need for sexual encounters with men is bottled up, it eventually explodes and compels them into risky situation. They can’t be see wandering into gay bars so they get prison time for having sex with minors, who they mistakenly think they can dominate. Or they go after hustlers, who, if their demands for money aren’t met, will eat them alive. Or stupidity and sex hunger incarnate, they toe tap for cops. And we’re left with the dilemma of calling this tragedy or farce.
