I am not one for outing people, though I do believe, and I will keep saying it until it happens, that every single LGBT person needs to come out now.
Think of the change in the world if there were no closet doors and no hiding; gone would be the shame; gone would be the pain; gone would be the intolerance, well, at least the blatant in-your-face intolerance because we would be everywhere.
Still, I don’t think it’s my job to out anyone … unless … and you knew there’d be an 'unless' .... Unless you’re a hypocritical anti-LGBT-Bible-Thumping-Holier-Than-Thou politician who works to deny civil rights to Americans based on their sexual orientation while you troll gay dating sites looking for a hookup.
Randall is a Republican, of course, who opposes expanding anti-discrimination protections to LGBT people, of course, through the law. He lives in Goshen, Indiana, and is a sports broadcaster and businessman, and has decided to run for the Goshen City Council.
Now, Goshen does not have an LGBT civil rights nondiscrimination law and Brent Randall is running on the platform of keeping Goshen anti-LGBT and claims, wrongly, of course, because he’s a Republican, that LGBT people are already protected by law.
Oh … and Randall has an active profile on Adam4Adam, an online dating site that boasts it's the "world's largest gay hookup site." And when asked about his Adam4Adam profile, Randall said:
“I don’t even know if I consider myself bisexual or not. I just experimented a little since I was single again.”
"I don’t know why they feel they need special protections when there are other categories that might need protections. My little experimentation over the last six years hasn’t changed my view on that."
First off, Brent, don’t say ‘they’ say ‘we’ because you’re an online queer boy, no matter what you call it; and, seriously, when one has been experimenting for six years one should have already learned the answer to their question.
Naturally, the Republican Party is standing by their gay anti-gay candidate because, well, anti-gay:
“He is the same person today as he was yesterday and is the right person to serve on City Council representing District 5. We are deeply saddened to see someone’s private personal life be exposed, by no choice of his own, for what can only appear to be political motivations. His entire life is turned upside down. ”
But, as I said … Republican.
