Supreme Court revisited: Chief Justice John Roberts is gay

Here's an old photo implicating him. Straight men don't pose with food.

You be the judge:

The guy with the mustache definitely looks gay.

by Anonymousreply 304/09/2012

They all look pretty gay to me. Isn't Roberts married?

During the 1980s when he worked in a DC firm, his associates (partners) thought he was gay, lived with a man as well assumed to be his partner. This from one of the associates- friend of my sister's, a very successful attorney in WA state. When his was being vetted for his appointment- my sister found this out. Astounding if true. Of course he may consider himself straight now that he has married a devout Catholic woman (in his early 40s) and they proceded to adopt a family.

You tell me?

On the other hand only a straight man would serve dessert before dinner.

Does Roberts have a record of statements about equal rights for gay people? Does he think the Constitution should be amended to protect such rights, or to prohibit such rights -- or does he think the issue should be decided by each state & the Constitution should not address it?

Being gay yourself should not determine your opinions about those issues, but it might affect them.

Being a closet gay who marries a woman and adopts children might skew your view of us 'regular' out gays who don't....

by Anonymousreply 1704/09/2012

The self denying closeted homosexuals are the most dangerous to the Gay community. I forward Edgar J Hoover, Ted Haggard and Roy Cohn as examples.

by Anonymousreply 1804/09/2012

Or the current champ David H. Koch. If he is gay.

Closet queens have proved very beneficial for the Repugs. J. Edgar, Roy Cohn, Larry Craig and on and on. Good little soldiers. They must recruit them.

by Anonymousreply 2104/09/2012

What R17 said, and this is why he scares me. If he closeted himself to marry a woman in his 40s he must be pretty fucked up about gay people.

by Anonymousreply 2204/09/2012

Well that explains his agreement with the noxious strip search ruling. He's getting his rubber gloves ready.

David Koch? First I've heard of this. Are you sure you are not confusing him with his older brother Freddie?

I don't care if he used to be gay, was never gay, or ever had a gay idea in his head. He is the enemy! A more articulate version of Clarence Thomas. A more polite version of Antonin Scalia. Those nasty conservatives only vote - I mean JUDGE - along party lines.

David Koch supports gay marriage.

William has had various hetero relationships. Fred collects Oscar Wilde. Charles is married.

R29 see R6

by Anonymousreply 3004/09/2012

r29 READ r6. Slowly and carefully. It's not a stupid photograph that we are basing this on.

by Anonymousreply 3104/09/2012

Thanks, I had scrolled by r6's post earlier.

What's troubles me is he could be what the religious right thinks we all should be: maybe he's an "ex-gay" ie for religious reasons he "left the gay lifestyle". He wanted a wife and kids, so he went out and got them. I wish him well, as long as he doesn't throw us under the bus.

For the legal scholars: has he given any indication that's he's as much of a gay hating brownshirt as Scalia?

by Anonymousreply 3204/09/2012

I always believed he was gay. It was the two perfect blonde adopted children that gave it away. I mean, it's difficult to adopt such picture-perfect children, isn't it?

by Anonymousreply 3304/09/2012

He's always wearing bronzer, or some type of fake tan.

R38: No gay man should allow his wife to be seen in public with eyelashes like that.

Nobody knows better how to hurt a community than a member of that community he hates to be part of by default. Of course it's easy to betray others when you are promised something of value in return and when you are in the winning circle where you won't have to fear negative consequences.

by Anonymousreply 4204/09/2012

r39, r37 was a QUESTION seeking to find out what r33 could have meant. Apparently you don't know either.

by Anonymousreply 4304/09/2012

Roberts did pro bono pro LGBT equality work on at least one case IIRC while working at a big DC firm back in the 90s and his (I think) cousin with whom he has a close relationship is an out lesbian. Take that for whatever you think it's worth. Personally, I think Roberts could be a 6th vote in favor of marriage equality if the case hit the Court tomorrow, if for no other reason than he wants to be on the right side of history on this social issue and he (like Kennedy) can see what history is ultimately going to say re gay rights.

Also, at least Roberts is a defender of 1st Amendment freedom of expression. He looks like a flaming liberal compared to Bush's other appointee Alito on that issue.

by Anonymousreply 4404/09/2012

Those eyelashes are a train-wreck!

Thank you r38!

And she's only 23 in that picture! Marrying a closet case ages you!

[quote]I always believed he was gay. It was the two perfect blonde adopted children that gave it away. I mean, it's difficult to adopt such picture-perfect children, isn't it?

And it's somehow easier for a closet case? I don't follow the logic. I also reject the idea that adopted children are any indication of the parents' sexuality.

by Anonymousreply 4704/09/2012

Jesus, you guys are slow.

It is difficult to find perfect blonde children to adopt. Many people are adopting children from other countries, or children with disabilities, because there aren't many white (much less blonde) babies up for adoption.

It shows that Roberts adopted perfect white children for the picture-perfect white-picket-fence family that looks so good in photo ops. I mean, if you were gay and trying to hide in the closet, wouldn't you want your fake family to look like the cover of Family Circle magazine?

by Anonymousreply 4804/09/2012

R44, history teaches us that one can never trust a closet case. Not ever. Not about anything. If he is afraid to live openly, then he can be blackmailed or intimidated and our enemies will make that connection.

OK R48. I have thought about it and I have concluded that you are most likely insane.

An acquaintance of mine says he had sex with the CJ but was told he would be killed if he ever tried to go public with the information.

by Anonymousreply 5804/09/2012

Well, fwiw...

Do any oldtimers here remember a guy who posted Dick something or other? My remember suddenly drew a blank. Very, very right-wing, and I had a few tussles with him. He posted here in 2000 that it was common knowledge Karl Rove was gay.

Roberts? Hmmm. I smell smoke.

Scalia's son is a priest. Not that this means anything. Not that I'm suspicious because the son went to Holy Cross, a hotbed of gay activity. A friend of mine from high school went there and told me that the guys who were destined for the seminary were (a)hot, (b)horny, and (c)right-wing. Just worth mentioning.

by Anonymousreply 6004/09/2012

Thank you r44.

I'm all for pointless bitchery about train-wreck eyelashes, but actual information is even more helpful.

by Anonymousreply 6104/09/2012

Glad to see so many enjoying the John Roberts photo and the specualtion that's he's gay. I always thought he was gay even before I ever saw the photo. And then when I heard that he married later in life and adopted the perfect blond childdren when he was 48, well, in my mind he's a big ol' closet case.

But that photo...oh my, there's no hiding behind the the black robe, chief justice Roberts.

by Anonymousreply 6204/09/2012

But, is he hung? And a top or a bottom?

He's not hung. And he's not a top.

If he were straight his wife would be better looking. John is too good looking for her. And adopting kids in his late 40 suspicious

BTW, Justice Clarence Thomas is a Holy Cross grad, and he's the antithesis of gay-friendly.

Back when he was nominated for CJ, someone posted that it was known at his first law firm that he was gay. Apparently he didn't go into the closet until a later date. You can be sure that none of the people who knew him then are going to talk.

Some people know how to keep that closet door shut.

by Anonymousreply 8706/26/2013

Not everyone is heavily into sex. Some are into power. I've known straight men for whom that was the case as well. They would never cheat on the spouse because the risk of losing what they value is too high.

What happened to the thread about the blogger who is ready to out a closeted member of Congress? Is there an update on when that's supposed to happen? Is Aaron Schock getting worried?

by Anonymousreply 8906/26/2013

one picture is all you base this on? Do you have anything else that might lead credence to this statement. Maybe that is what the obama via the NSA has on him and was able to bribe him into the decision on obamacare. Anything more substantial than one photo? How about him doing the down low? Anything?
