This isn't about being a closeted homosexual. This is about being a hypocrite, a pederast, and a sleaze. This scandal would have been every bit as damning if he had been caught having cybersex with a female, but I wonder if it would have generated as much attention? I am fed up with the whole "Oh! He's a homo!" slant that everyone wants to focus on. Fuck that. He's a SEXUAL PREDATOR who deserves no sympathy or support.
And, by the way, they are EVERYWHERE. Hell, our culture grows them by the bushel basket. We sexualize our kids. We worship Youth. The younger, the better. I'm suspicious that this scandal is being touted merely for political benefit. You don't think the Democratic party is chock full of dirty old men as well? C'mon!
This isn't a Republican vs. Democrat issue. This scandal isn't merely a Power Elite vs. Public Servant issue. It goes WAY beyond that. This dirty little secret has been ignored and excused for too long and it permeates society. Grown trolls, regardless of their sexual orientation, preying upon the young and impressionable, using their power for sexual gains: it makes me sick.
This isn't a "gay" issue. This is everyone's issue.
