>Did you ever hear a media figure you were *sure* was gay, and wasn't?
Well, I don't see how you can decide that someone "isn't".
Even if they used to date same sex people, and then married
and had children.
So many people are bi, or at least experiment enough during their
lives that there is only one way to describe them (bi) that I often
wonder at why we feel they have to be one or the other!
Having said that, I always thought Bill was gay, until he married
Hillary. But, since she's a l______, perhaps it doesn't mean as much
as I thought!
That is, because of, because of our,
that is, we are attempting,
the position is to withhold information
and to cover up - this is totally true -
you could say it is totally untrue.

GOD no! I already know that's a load of crap. And as I said in a post
to Nancy, I didn't mean to imply that I don't still think he's gay/bi,
but rather that my certainty level has gone down in the past six months
Maggie "who knew?" Newman
I thought we covered this months ago! I'm not saying I don't believe
he's gay or bi. I still do. However, the asg-ers here - as well as
Keanu's public statements on the matter - have convinced me that he
*might* be straight. I'm not 100% certain now - that was my point.
Oops, you don't remember that he removed himself from this conversation

I'm sorry. Very sorry. (That you attended a hockey game.)
Once I was buying some junk food at a minimart on Belmont in
Chicago, and I bolted out the door to run for the el 'cause I
didn't want to miss the next train, and I came within millimeters
of colliding with a very large man who had an attractive younger
female companion at his side. It wasn't till about 10 seconds
later that I realized I'd almost bowled into Ebert.
This anecdote is irrelevant w/r/t his orientation, but he's
never set off my gaydar and I always just assumed he was straight.
As far as the question is concerned, I kind of used to think
Matthew Broderick was, but I read an amusing interview with
Harvey Fierstein, whom I'm inclined to believe in such matters,
who said that he (Matthew) wasn't. Actually, I don't know if
I thought he was as much as it was wishful thinking.

Is his new bride the same woman he was with at the Oscars? He got points
from me for trying to push her as a "wonderful actress" whenever any of
the reporters asked about her (not many did.) I got the impression that
she starred with him in one of the Lobsterman films and that she had found
her, shall we be nice and say, stairway to heaven. Does anyone know?

It wasn't my fault! Someone gave my father free tickets! It was the only game
he ever attended too.
Further to the hockey theory, I did further research at work today. Two of the
men I questioned could not name a single acquaintance who likes hockey,
although they both knew gay men who have had sex with women (10% from one, 30%
from the other)
A third man insists that more gay men like hockey than sex with women, but
hey, he's a hockey fan.
So at my office anyway, 3 out of 4 homos agree that liking hockey is absolute
proof of heterosxuality in men. As soon as I ask a fifth one, I'll get back to
the group with our opinion of sugarless gum.

In addition to being musical and Canadian, Paul Shaffer is also Jewish.
Which brings me to another one of my twisted theories--that effeminacy is a
sign of heterosexuality in Jewish, Canadian, males.
Being Jewish, Canadian, and gay, I have noticed that most of the straight
Canadian Jewish men I know would rate far lower on traditional masculinity
than the gay Jewish men I know.

ob-gossip I used to work with a straight Jewish man who grew up in Thunder Bay
with Paul Shaffer. He (the guy I worked with) wasn't mechanically inclined
enough to turn on a television.
I had always assumed that Robert Morse was gay. A couple of people
who met him at a theater department function at Ohio State many
years ago assured me that he was. Imagine my surprise when, in
an interview with the Advocate (!) a few years ago (around the
time he was in the Toronto production of Show Boat), he discussed
his recent marriage, a la Mr. Randall, to a much younger woman.
The only reference to gayness in the entire interview had to do
with his appearance in "Tru," and his sorrow over losing many
friends to AIDS. It's OK, though; some of my best friends are
"Scandal is gossip made tedious by morality"
I was watching some iceskating thingamajig a couple of weeks ago and they mentioned
a long term girlfriend. Needless to say I was shocked to pieces. I mean, I didn't
even think it was a question.
Not only is he apparently straight, I seem to remember reading here last year

Seems to me I read in some pseudo-psychiatric gossip book years ago
Randall was quoted as saying he was bisexual.
Lori Petty's another one I pegged wrong, apparently.
So now I'm confused. Is Rupert GRAVES gay, or not?? I've held on to the
idea for so long that I can't accept that he might be straight. Although,
he *did* play a very convincing bisexual in Design for Living on the West End.

Is he? Jeez, what I don't know about the private lives of celebrities
would fill a pretty big book. Good for him, I say; with some facial hair
(a beard to tone down those very big eyes and lips) he's keee-yoooot.
Brent Spiner, though, you can keep; in or out of makeup he looks like a
department-store mannequin, and he's the hammiest actor ever to appear on
STTNG, which is saying a lot.
Years ago, when STTNG was still on the air, Michael Musto printed a
blind item to the effect that one of the cast members was hung like a bull
moose. Any idea who it was? I think every male on that show was cited at
one point or another in the gossip I heard and read, but with those Lycra
costumes it's hard to believe that *any* of them had anything out of the
ordinary, unless they used what RuPaul calls "an award-winning tuck". And
it's not in the Anti-FAQ, either. So who knows?
Quite frankly, I'm surprised when any prominent male figure skater is
straight. Virtually all of them have set off my gaydar.
Oops, one big exception -- Russian male skaters. For some reason, as a
whole they seem quite butch. This, of course, doesn't mean they're
straight, but I'm not surprised when they are.
P.S. Is Scott Hamilton really homophobic? That's unconscionable under
any circumstances, but given the amount of gay men in figure skating I
can't believe he's become a spokesman for his sport if he truly has
expressed homophobic feelings.

He also wrote "Beyond The Valley of the Dolls", though I'm not sure

Me, too. WOW! More than any white man should have. :)
Craig, you are totally wrong. Spiner is as straight as they come. And his
eyes are blue, btw.
