Too bad Aaron is so pretty. What do we have on him, gay-wise?
All of them. These people in the public eye who have a platform to make a difference and don't use it are a disgrace.
And those who go back in the closet, like Luke Evans, for money are the worst.
R10, it's just the vibe I've always gotten from Ralph Reed. I have no other evidence.
R7, then what are they doing with a "platform" if they don't want one? If you're in the public eye, you have a platform. If you don't want it, you shouldn't be in the public eye, unless you are there because of circumstances beyond your control.
[quote]What if the people in the 'public eye who have a platform to make a difference and don't use it' don't want a platform? Are they still a disgrace?
Yes, they are most certainly a disgrace. Whether we like it or not, people do listen and look up to celebrities, especially the younger ones. And when we have kids who are being bullied and committing suicide because they feel like they're all alone and have no role models to look up to, then it's all the more reason to hate these closeted celebs. They could be out and proud, speaking up and making a difference, but instead only care about fame and fortune. So fuck them.
There are different platforms r15. Not everyone wants a political or activist platform. It's ridiculous to try and simplify a persons belief/life/work just because you want them to speak what you want or represent you.
r17 = closet apologist
R17, this is true, however, it's like anything else. You are given something, whether it's wealth, power, celebrity, and either you use that "gift" to try and make the world a better place or you don't. And it is a gift, because no one is self-made.
Remember, 99.9% of the world have no platform to speak of, so if you're one of the .01% who do, and you choose to be egotistical, greedy and selfish, you'll fit right in with the rest of the "I'll-eat-my-$112,000-truffles-and-wipe-my-ass-with-imported-silk" .01%, while the rest of us eat cat-food and jump out windows.
OP is right
[quote]Too bad Aaron is so pretty
Absolutely. It's like Chuckie fucked Barbie.
I don't mind a closet case who is essentially hurting himself, but one who hurts others because of his self-loathing is reprehensible.
David Tyler Muir -- the Eve Harrington of the 21st century.
Don't forget Grover Norquist.
"OP, you are filled with hatred against other people. YOu are not any better than others you probably claim are bigoted and hateful. You revel in your hatred of others."
There is a difference between disliking another person and being a professional bigot who votes for discriminatory laws
That's how I feel, R23, however, if you're a greedy self-absorbed wealthy famous closeted homosexual, even if that person is not a Republican, screw him. If you can't come out or live your life as yourself, find another way to give back.
Also, you don't have to become a political activist if you're a famous gay, all you have to do is refuse to say you're not gay. For example, I have no problem with Kevin Spacey. He doesn't scream from the rooftops that he's gay, but he doesn't deny it either.
I hate all closet cases.
If all of us came out, we could rule the world.
"He doesn't scream from the rooftops that he's gay, but he doesn't deny it either."
He has denied it many times in the past (although it seems like he is easing up on creating a fake straight guy persona...)
I disagree with you. Kevin Spacey is even worse than Luke Evans. Just creepy.
Well, I'm not exactly in love with the guy, R30, but I thought he lived in a glass closet.
I can't believe Lindsay Graham has not been caught in the act or outed already.
Repulsive shit stain
Also Hugh Jackman.
I hate how this guy keeps playing the wife angle to claim heterosexuality when he is clearly bisexual or mostly gay.
i have suspicions about speaker boehner...
South Carolina's other US senator.
Realistically, OP, most of the names mentioned on this thread have no substantive backing beyond the gay rumors. Lindsay Graham is an exception, obviously; his gayness is one of the most open secrets in D.C. There's really nothing behind the Aaron Schock rumors aside from the fact that he wore a slightly gay outfit to a party one time and happens to be in great shape. We already established that Grover Norquist isn't gay, either, but happens to be one of the (few) Republicans who supports gay rights.
Aaron Schock is even gayer than Lindsay Graham. No one needs rumors to verify that... He exudes homosexuality.
Why do you hate? You should respect their life as much as you demand they respect yours.
My partner is CONVINCED that Oprah is a lesbian - and gets absolutely incensed whenever he sees her on TV or in the news. Anything she says or does he considers to be loathsome and deceitful.
Same with Robin Williams.
You can assume that some people are 'in the glass closet'.. but you can't deny the fact that you don't know 98% of their life experiences or who they really are. If some of them don't come out, then there must be something that you're totally clueless about, of course.
mentioning Kevin Spacey [r27] opens up a whole can of worms
I tend to agree with your bf, r45. However...At least they aren't Nazis though, or passing laws to discriminate gays.
I hate R9 and R44. This notion that to hate bigots is bigotry itself is tired and false and moral relativism at its worst. There is right and wrong and antigay bigotry is clearly wrong.
I think someone should "out" Lindsay Graham. Expose him so his constituents can get his puffed up ass out of office. Honestly, if you looked up "pathetic old queen" in the dictionary, there would be a photo of Graham.
Missy Elliot kind of angers me how she pumps and dumps struggling R&B divas but still lavishes in her heterosexual privilege. ...Tweet, Nicole Ray (Wray?), that girl from Total, etc.
R50, closeted celebrities are not necessarily bigots, so how's hating someone, whose only crime that you know of is not telling you who he sleeps with, considered moral? Sorry, but you're the one who is twisting morality to justify your hateful feelings.
Aaron Swartz was not in the closet, and he was not a politician.
R57 Did you post to the right thread? No way is Ethan Mordden a closet case.
I don't know if I hate anyone, but the mega star closet cases like Cruise and Travolta are disappointing and destructive. They refuse to acknowledge that gay people even exist, and they get into fake marriages and raise children.
R57, he CAN"T be a clone, he is not smoking a cigarette.
Wheezing Into The 80s
R60. That's their fucked up house to deal with. I don't see why we should care or hate them. To each their own.
no. not when gay teens are killing themselves
Celebrities coming out will fix that?
I am all for outing Travolta and Cruise.
I don't hate any of them. Coming out is a personal choice.
[quote]Celebrities coming out will fix that?
It will definitely help. Whether we like it or not, kids look to celebs for role models, and the more celebs that have the guts to come out to show that you can be gay and still have a great life gives these kids something to look up to and let them not feel so alone. But instead these wimps care more about fame and fortune when they could be making a difference. It's pathetic.
[quote]I don't hate any of them. Coming out is a personal choice.
Nope. Once you chose to get in the public eye, being under scrutiny is fair game.
Not all gay kids look up to celebrities you phony twat. I'm so disgusted by all this pretentious "i care for suicidal gay kids" when we all know that all you care is just gossips and celebrities.
and what makes you so certain that celebrities have a great life, which one is straightup gay and which is actually bisexual, or just gay-friendly? Stop threatening people you don't know well.
Seacrest. Revolta. Tammy.
If they admire celebrities they are going to kill themselves eventually. Celebrities are a solid wasteland of cuntitude. Parents are the issue, not fauxlebrities.
R62/R64/R70 & R68 - You both sound really angry. Are you in the closet too? Maybe that's why you're so angry and sympathetic to these closet cases.
Very out and happy fuck you very much, but know everyone is entitled to a choice.
R73 You don't sound very happy. I wish you well :)
Maybe we should be feeling sorry for these closet cases. After all, they're either SLAVES to fame and fortune and/or psycho Hollywood, or they are so self-loathing that they're scared to death to be themselves. I don't care how much money they have, at best, they're constantly monitored house slaves who can barely breathe without fear of bringing heaven and earth down upon them. What good is money when you're a damn slave? It's pathetic, therefore we should only pity the poor souls.
I even feel sorry for that idiot wide-stance politician. Seriously, does it get more pitiful than that?
All the closeted Freepers who cruise this forum.
[quote]All the closeted Freepers who cruise this forum.
Exactly what I was thinking - they make themselves very obvious, don't they?
R74. Wha makes you so right?
If you're a closeted gay actor in Hollywood who beards with some poor sap of a woman and then proceeds to go on talk shows and discuss how "it's cool to be gay and everything but I'M NOT" or purposefully start a sentence with "As a straight man..." to combat those annoying gay rumors, you're spitting in the face of every gay person who has ever had the balls to come out, especially those who came out in much tougher times than these.
Agree. Bearding sends a horrible message. I know Clooney and Seacrest do it for appearance sake, and frankly, out of laziness and convenience, but no one would faint if they came out and said here is my partner Joe.
James Franco does us more harm than good.
[quote]I hate all closet cases.

Unfortunately, you're not living in Heaven.
Unfortunately, if all of us came out, not all of us want to be friends with you.
Some of us might hate you just like we hated Perez Hilton.
