What the fuck you got against gay people? You say you don't have anything against gay people but than say you "died a little inside" when you found out he was gay, like it's some sort of "disease" or "great loss".

He was gay, the only reasonable response is "so what?" not "no offense or anything but I like totally died a little inside when I found out."

Fuck you. Go eat a dick.

I guess you were not an 80's kid. My generation grew up watching it and some wanted to grow up and be like the character. To find out he was not the guy we all thought he was, yes was a bit of a buzz kill.

That's what you get for putting people on a pedestal and anthropomorphizing your own personal bias onto them, fuckface!

Today I learned Mr. T is gay. And it has no impact on my life whatsoever unless it somehow comes up in bar trivia, just like Zachary Quinto who plays Spock being gay, or George Takei who played the original Sulu being happily married to his husband.

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: Ranting corner
The only thing that makes me sad about growing up and watching 80's TV is knowing how many of the child stars were getting so twisted and abused (financially, emotionally, physically) by the Hollywood machine and yet they looked so fun & happy on TV.

I loved Dana Plato, she was my age. I used to fantasize that she would be my perfect girlfriend. She died of a drug overdose, that made me very sad when it happened.

Gary Coleman...what a sad story too.

Thankfully, Whil Wheaton is still with us...and he seems to be doing okay. If he came out as gay, I wouldn't care one bit.

A I recall he was NEVER the character to have a romantic interest. Think about that for a minute.

Ok mate don't get pissy I'm not advocating the death penalty for gay people and don't forget I was a kid then so I equated macho with straight. I find it offensive when upstarts take the moral high ground and demand we change when really we are thinking and have changed attitude well I know I have anyways, I'm so sorry I don't live up to your moral standards based in the 21st century I am a product of a 20th century mindset and although I have changed I'm sorry its not fast enough for you. I just said it was a shock and tbh as a young person you need to work harder at understanding older people before you pass judgement on them and write them off, before you pass a smartass judgement on your older folks ask them to explain what they mean and where they are coming from the world was very different back then and that my friend is not their fault.

Just putting it out there for general thought. It is interesting though, he was written as a rather one sided character. tough macho with tender side, no womenz.

EDIT: I had to reconcile the idea that Rock Hudson was gay, now THAT was a stretch! Big Grin

Well given the source I looked it up and it is just a rumour.

I've never heard this.

The Mr. T. thing is apparently a rumor; I only heard it in the debating back and forth over the last few pages. Though I'll go with Rev having looked it up and not finding substantiated evidence, sorry about that!
