There was a gay subplot in 'Ben Hur' ???

I thought the *whole thing* was gay.

Most celebrated liberals are closet pedophiles. This is a proven fact.

Catholic priests are liberals?

He was an icon of the liberal Left


What about conservative Left?

It's based off of a file William Buckley (of NRO fame) kept on Vidal's sex life.  Yeah, I don't believe it for a second.
 
2013-11-12 01:24:29 PM  
Vidal boasted that he'd had 1,000 sexual partners by the time he was 25.

Ms Straight and her son Burr Steers were very close to Vidal in his last years before he died in 2012 aged 86.
They are contesting the writer's request in his will for his £23million estate to be given to Harvard University (which he never attended).


Are these names some kind of joke?  That I'm too tired to make?

Also, completely reliable sources you've got there, Daily Mail.

Sprouting his beans in some Thai's Pad probably.

I'm not sure what you mean. Maybe you're just pointing out that the Daily Mail is a piece of shiat pro-Nazi rag run by a lowlife lying scumbucket?

They're saying Gore Vidal farked Fred Astaire?

Well, all rightie then.

His half-sister and nephew, who were very close to Vidal, have revealed they strongly suspect he was a globe-trotting paedophile...

Sounds like someone got written out of the will.

If they really suspected this shiat, they should have came forward when he was alive (and it might have done some good).

As it is, they should just let him rest in peace, with his reputation as a well connected writer who wrote boring and unreadable books intact.

If you over 30, male, and never married you are a pedophile: that is what everyone thinks. So if one is going to do the time, might as well go ahead and get the benefits of the crime.
 
2013-11-12 01:30:03 PM  

Fark you, Daily Fail!

From the article: Whether those 'adhesions' included underage boys may be something we will never learn for certain. Then why farking claim it, assholes?

After spending a great deal of time trying to smear Gore Vidal as a pedophile, the article ends with that bit of fun, essentially saying "the entire article is hearsay, which we didn't bother to confirm or deny, and as such is a load of codswallop." This is all you get from the Daily Fail - bullshiat.

It is slander pure and simple, which is why they waited until the farker croaked before shopping this book around.  They are basically trying to make money off of the stereotype that all homosexual men are after little boys.

So about 70 unique lovers a year?  So literally a flavor of the week and doubling up some weeks.

Not that there's anything wrong with it.

But with children?  Is that the best you could do, Vidal ???
 
2013-11-12 01:34:57 PM  
I don't know if he was a kiddie diddler or not. All I'm saying is, that's a pretty weird looking lamp on his desk.

Getting laid as a gay man is as easy as it gets. Especially when he was young, he could go to bath houses and easily have sex 10 times a day.

Damn, Gore Vidal was an even worse name-dropper after his death than during his life.

But here's a question:  where did William F. Buckley, Jr. get the information to fill his blackmail folder? and how?

I can't imagine he'd have access to the police records of Bangkok or even London. Unless he was a big closet queen himself (quite possible), he wouldn't have had access to much in the way of reliable gossip.

If a man frequents young male prostitutes, he's almost bound to be 1) blackmailed or 2) to inadvertently have sex with underage male prostitutes because it's really hard to judge the age of a male prostitute. They age very rapidly. Why wasn't Vidal blackmailed successfully or very unsuccessfully? There should be a paper trail, not to mention some trials.

And why did Buckley, Jr. never use that file? What was he saving it for? The two of them roundly hated each other and evidently had a lot of opportunity and motive to use whatever materiel came to hand.

I am not going to hold my breath until these allegations are proven true or false.

If Buckley did keep a file (perhaps as insurance?) his son allegedly destroyed it well before this book was published or written. Both Buckley and Gore are pretty much off of each other's hook unless there is a common Hell for both of them.

It's too easy for haters to equate homosexuality and pedophilia, but they are two different things. The vast majority of pedophiles are heterosexuals, and the percentage suggests to me that sexual orientation and pedophilia have no more than a random connection. The number of pedophiles who molest little girls is exactly what you would expect if there was no connection at all between the chance of being a pedophile and the chance of being a heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual--a large majority of all pedophiles are heterosexuals, with the remainder bisexual or homosexual. There may even be asexual pedophiles--who would prefer children if they could be bothered to have sex at all.

As the Scottish courts are wont to do, I have to enter a verdict of "not proven". Probably just another celebrity exposé being sold with speculation and hype.

I don't know anyone who thinks that. If you're over 30, never married and have a PVR filled with episodes of Toddlers in Tiaras, then everyone thinks you're a pedophile.
 
2013-11-12 01:58:18 PM  
Somehow I'm not very upset by the idea that Vidal might have had relations with a 16 or 17 year old male prostitute.

That's very different from forcibly raping a five (5) year old, which would offend even me.
