I'm trying to decide if this matters. Whether semi-cheating and lying about it disqualifies him from service.
But every time some Freeper screeches about how this means he HAS to quit and I think about how their "family values" candidates are allowed to divorce their dying wives in the hospital, I give AW a break.

Thomas Mann had two gay sons (Klaus and Golo) and a lesbian daughter, Erika (who married W.H. Auden so he could get his green card.) Only one of his sons was straight: Michael.
The critic Alex Ross said that Mann having six children was "above and beyond the call of duty" for a closeted gay man.
