"Why is it that politicians always seem to come out as gay, but never as bi? It's always some crazy story like, "oh yeah, my entire life for the past 40 years has been a complete lie, I'm not even remotely attracted to women.""


Nobody likes a flip-flopper.

Someone tell me what I should think about a bunch of “escorts” on Twitter rumbling about outing “Lady G.”

Doesn't matter if he's gay. What matters is he's a horrible representative.

Well, if true, it just reinforces how shady he is, actively hiding it all these years.

Agreed. It would be much more damning if the GOP was still riding their “family values” plank, but that’s been jettisoned (somewhat) since Trump took over. Although I do think it would be fair to look up his past statements on DADT, DOMA, etc.

Pretty damn good chance all the rumblings are fake anyway.

Reminds me of when all those male masseuses came out and said that John Travolta tried to jerk them off.

Guess I'm trying to say that this doesn't go anywhere.

Don't think I can buy into that. It's not our business

This is quite different tho. Lots of people strongly dislike the subject.

It would put a lot of conservatives who support him in an awkward position. Do they support him? Or do they support their version of family values?

Also, why does it matter if he's kept it a secret all this time? Calling that shady is basically calling out everyone afraid to come out of the closet. You can call him a hypocrite sure, but staying in the closet, I wouldn't consider that shady.

Where would that make him a hypocrite though?(aside from already being one) Its not like he's married or tried to get married. This would completely align with his position on DADT.

I went searching for some shitty things Graham had said about LGBTQ folks Or sex workers and, surprisingly, he was way less shitty about those issues than I thought. There are some pretty terrible quotes about DOMA from the mid-2000s where he compared gay marriage to polygamy multiple times, but the quotes I found don’t hold a candle to the shitty stuff other parts of the GOP have said.

[Edited on June 5, 2020 at 3:38 PM. Reason : ^yes, similarly opposing gay marriage and being gay aren’t necessarily inconsistent positions]

^^^

Weaponizing his gayness against him knowing his voters are homophobic is a dirty, immoral, and homophobic tactic itself. The GOP would 100% do it if the tracks are turned, but it would be massively hypocritical for any democratic group to do this.

It’s like how Jesse helms made fun of galofinakis’ name or when gopers liked to call Obama by his middle name.

On the flip side Graham hiding this aspect of himself hurts gay people in his district and it helps perpetuate homophobia

I get the sentiment here but when has the GOP ever been penalized for being hypocrites? I can't think of a single time.

How is this a question? We all know exactly what would happen.
