    Tab Hunter dead at 86

    He was the golden boy in the 50s. And came to grips with being gay.

    interviewer: what made you decide to come out about who you are.....I paraphrase a bit.


    The left ist homosexuals define themselves by how they have sex. that's rather............narrow.....and sad.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    Way before my time. I'm sure he had way more dignity than a lot of those gays you see at the parades.

    The LA Times used his death as an excuse to beat themselves for early Homophobia:


    How the then-homophobic L.A. Times handled Tab Hunter’s secret gay life in Hollywood




    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    It is just weird for people to define themselves by how they have sex. But Lefty is weird about a lot of things.

    For those to young to understand what was going on in those times: Basically beefcake was the rage. Good looking guys with girls throwing themselves at their feet. That, rather than acting ability was what made stars back then. Sex then, as now sold. Very few people were openly gay although it was more excepted if you were female so some of them did come out. Garbo was an example (she was bi). Tab Hunter was an ok actor but really didn't have the talent (I believe) to become a star just on acting skills so he was sold as a beefcake.
