Hillary Clinton Denies She’s a Lesbian
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton has come out of the closet: She’s heterosexual.
During an interview with The Advocate to be published next week, Sean Kennedy, the gay magazine’s news and features editor, asked the presidential candidate, “How do you respond to the occasional rumor that you’re a lesbian?”
“People say a lot of things about me, so I really don’t pay any attention to it,” Sen. Clinton (D-N.Y.) replied. “It’s not true, but it is something that I have no control over. People will say what they want to say.”
For what it’s worth, I guess. I’ve always presumed she was straight but her denial doesn’t provide any meaningful additional evidence. As Larry Craig and others have shown, it’s possible for a high profile public figure to be gay, pretend to be straight, and even to deny being gay despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Countdown to condemnation from gay activist groups for not loudly proclaiming that she’d be proud to be gay 5, 4, 3 . . .
Slightly reworded for clarity.
