Mark Foley -- Mainstream and Gay or Perverted and a Pedophile?

Would someone please tell Mark Foley that he's not gay, he's a pedophile?  

I'm surprised that the Gay and Lesbian Alliance isn't all over this one. According to a gay person [generally speaking] refers to a man who is sexually attracted to other men. MEN is the operative word. Foley is into boys.

Ironic that a conservative Republican Roman Catholic like Foley couldn't wait to jump on the gay bandwagon when his behavior came out from under a rock. Being a homosexual is so mainstream now that it is no longer considered a psychological disorder. The shrinks even took it out of their Big Book of Really Scary Personality Types You Can Grow Up to Be.

Naturally Foley has his lawyer announce that he is gay to make him seem, uh, normal. Because admitting to being a pedophile doesn't have nearly the same cache as admitting to being gay. Although it does offer a host of opportunities for prison time.

Foley's erroneous claim that he's gay continues to fuel the confusion created by those who would have you think that all gay people are pedophiles. Being sexually attracted to children, no matter which sex, is what makes someone a pedophile. Period. Sorry, Mark, you can't play the gay card once you start acting inappropriately with boys.

Also, am I the only one who knew the congressman had been molested at around the same age as the boys he has solicited on line? People were acting like this was some surprise revelation. Admitting to his molestation was a surprise, perhaps. But pedophiles are made, not born. Nor does it surprise me that the culprit was a member of the clergy [since he's Catholic, that would no doubt be one of the many pedophile PRIESTS among us]. Garbage in, garbage out.

Might as well throw in the alcohol made me do it defense. Alcohol made Mel Gibson anti-semitic. Now it's made the congressman write salacious IM's to high school boys.

What next? Alcohol made me pregnant? Oh wait, that's been done.

Thank you!!!

I'm sorry but it pissed me off to hear him saying "oh well it's because I'm gay." No, no, Mr Foley, that's called SICK. My cousin is a gay MAN and so I'm probably a little too sensitive to that. But it's just so stupid. He's not gay. He's a pedophile. Gay doesn't not mean "sex with boys is cool" it means "I like MEN."

Glad to hear someone else say that.

And no, it's not shocking he was molested. Most people that molest children, or people in general, were molested themselves.

Okay, I vented lol Thank you for the forum, I'll step off my soapbox now :O

I'm gay and have never even had the slightest interest in children.  I drink too.  that didn't trigger it either.  Foley is a criminal.  Thank you for this entry.

Alcohol makes me pretty.

Alcohol is always a great excuse for everything, except being a pedophile.

All that spin, for what?  You have to know that this is probably not the first time for him, this is just the first time he's been CAUGHT.

No amount of spin will be able to change that.
P.S.  Alcohol made me pregnant?  It's all becoming clear to me

Oh you hit this one right on the nail.  It really is a cop-out for him to claim that he is Gay and you are right gays should be irate about this.  Sandi

I agree....homosexuals arent pedofiles...and pedofiles dont want to have sex with adults by its very definition and its a known life fact


rebuketheworld said...

Sorry had to add to that comment I just left...obviously some pedofiles are married...and most adults yes they will  have sex with...its just that its not satisfying for them.

Did you see Bill Maher with Robbin Williams tonight? They were talking about this...but they said Foley was not with boys or kids so it wasn't pedophile? I haven't been listening to this so I don't know. I don't know if there is an age thing? They also commented that the teens were not innocent in the emails themselves???

Hi Mrs L.  How are ya?!

My two cents: One can be gay AND a pedophile.  Or not.  I think that a lot of very closeted gay men can get into these types of behaviors.  And sex between older men and teens is way more common than one might think.  Not that it's right, just that it happens a lot.

My biggest reaction was that it figured that he was Republican-- the Republican party is so fu***ed up.  That's just MHO, of course!

      Miss you Albert.  Here's my two cents in return. Naturally, i am aware that you have a better perspective than I do, but that never stopped me before.  My thinking is based on rock, paper, scissors logic.  None of this has been sanctioned by any governing body, but here goes anyway:

     A man, regardless of marriage/sex with a woman or women, is gay if he has a sexual preference for other men. He only has to be sexually attracted to other men to qualify. If he's also sexually attracted to male children, he's no longer a gay man, he's a pedophile. The same way a heterosexual man who is attracted to little girls is no longer heterosexual, he is a pedophile.  

     Pedophile trumps gay which trumps heterosexual, regardless of how many of each one has sex with.

     That's why, despite all the AOL chat rooms to the contrary, I don't believe in bi-sexuality.

     As time has passed and all the lesbians I have known turn out to have an early history of sexual abuse along with many gay men I've known [I haven't asked all of them]  I truly wonder what the f*ck is going on.

     Most likely there are any number of paths to becoming gay or lesbian -- from DNA influences to environmentally nurtured reasons, to congenital events, to who knows what.  On the other hand, I'll step out on a limb here and say that every pedophile is someone who was sexually abused as a child.

     Which doesn't mean that every person who was sexually abused in childhood is a pedophile. Or will become a pedophile.  Or gay.  Or lesbian.  Okay, I'll give it a rest.

     Mrs. L

They have some good marketing going on him by calling him gay. Yes, I did notice that he is a pedophile. He just likes them old enough to be able to read.
