Gay Community Turns on Kevin Spacey

Yikes. All of Hollywood’s open secrets are just becoming open.

Gay rights campaigners have slammed Kevin Spacey’s decision to come out as gay during an apology to actor Anthony Rapp, claiming it links homosexuality with abuse.

Spacey has been accused of making sexual advances at a 14-year-old Rapp after inviting him to his Manhattan apartment.

Just hours after being accused, Spacey released a statement announcing he was gay and admitted there ‘are stories out there about me’.

But Spacey’s coming out has caused fury in the LGBT community, with high-profile campaigner Peter Tatchell saying it links homosexuality with abuse.

    His attempt to wrap himself in highest level of liberal victimhood seems to be failing.

    Wondering if he should try the full victim “tri-fecta” by changing gender and checking for surprising minority DNA.

    This is the problem with liberal victimhood… it protects awful Hollywood behavior because people are afraid to speak out against evil in a protected liberal victim class.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    What about conservative victimhood?  The current occupant being the self-proclaimed poster boy for that malady.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    You are ticked because Trump is using tactics of left. That’s one of reasons I am warming up to Trump. He can play the game well…and drive leftists crazy by inflicting their tactics on them.

  4. Le Roi du Nord


    No, trump conned you and 48% of the voters last Nov.  He is a conman, adulterer, sexual predator, and a crook.  And you are falling for it hook, line, and sinker.

    And it is really amusing to see your hypocrisy bubble to the top with the, “Trump is using tactics of left. That’s one of reasons I am warming up to Trump” statement.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    I am not a fan of Trump.  I choked out a vote for him.  From a policy angle on Executive orders, he has been pleasantly surprising!   From a legislative angle, the Republicans have been a real failure.   So I am not pleased about that.   Even if Trump is all those things, Bill Clinton set the standard.   We were to ignore all that under his administration…why don’t liberals do the same?

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    So if the other guy did it, it’s OK with you?  Soooo many hypocrites, sooo little time…….

    “rationalization is the second strongest human drive.”

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Leftists are not going to stop their awful tactics anytime soon.

    Using some of their tactics is just decimating the left. I think of it as saving the country, which is a good thing.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    At least conservatives use rationality.

    A liberal religion that is going to scream at the sky over election this week, shows major signs of mental illness.

  10. Pat


    Rationality is scientific, rationalization is mythical.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Pat,


    –the action of reorganizing a process or system so as to make it more logical and consistent.

    I understand logic, process, and reorganization may be “mythical” to you, but come in from the cesspool for a while, it might clear your head.

  12. Pat

    Oh Kevin,

    the action of attempting to explain or justify behavior or an attitude with logical reasons, even if these are not appropriate.
    “most people are prone to self-deceptive rationalization”

    How’s life in the cesspool?

  13. Pat

    And oh Kevin,

    noun: rationality; plural noun: rationalities
    the quality of being based on or in accordance with reason or logic.
    “like any phobia, rationality plays only a small role”
    the quality of being able to think sensibly or logically.
    “Scott wanted to play the character with a bit more dignity and rationality”
    the quality of being endowed with the capacity to reason.
    “we call rationality the distinction of man, when compared with other animals”
    the property of a number, quantity, or expression of being expressible, or containing quantities which are expressible, as a ratio of whole numbers.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    tra·tion·al·i·za·tion:  made-up word used by people trying to rationalize an irrational action or endeavor.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    My definition is the most common one.

    It you can’t be clear about what you mean, is that not a rationalization on your part?

  16. Pat


    “My definition is the most common one.”

    Really??? What’s your evidence of that?

  17. Kevin Scheunemann


    You saying rationalization is second strongest human drive.

    I assume the best that you are indicating rational thought and order being brought to inconsistency…the essence of political debate.

    Are you using it in some sort of negative context? You should be an optimist, like me.

  18. Pat


    You still gave no evidence. Just deflection.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann

    If you would just be clear in the chaos of your statements, we would not have this problem.

    I’m happy to bring order to your chaotic, sloppy usage, of the term.

  20. Major Booris

    Or we could just ask Mark Belling. It’s his quote, after all. His conservative bonafides are pretty impeccable, so if he says Kevin’s wrong, it might actually get through.

  21. Pat


    Again, you still give no evidence. Just more deflection. But I accept it’s something you made up as the truth. Something the Commander in Chief consistently does. You have much in common with him. So I won’t debate this any longer with you.
