I heard an interesting interview with James McGreevey recently where he said a lot of public figures are sort of forced/constrained into straighthood by the political class. I don’t think I buy this – I think many public figures just lack the courage to be honest about their sexuality.
This story is breaking about Senator Craig. I think this is sad on many levels: first, the Puritanistic diversion of police resources for victimless crimes; second, whether Senator Craig is innocent or guilty, straight, bi, or gay – I wish for a world where people can just be honest (with themselves and the public); third, another chapter of “gotcha politics” being played by the media and politicos alike.
Let’s get real, eh? Wouldn’t that be refreshing?
