Yeah, right.

But they would throw me out as soon as I revealed to them that I was a heathen.

Wow-and why were the others laughing at that?

http://mediamatters.org/items/200708290003

"On the August 28 edition of MSBNC Live, hosted by MSNBC general manager Dan Abrams, Tucker Carlson, host of MSNBC's Tucker, asserted, "Having sex in a public men's room is outrageous. It's also really common. I've been bothered in men's rooms." Carlson continued, "I've been bothered in Georgetown Park," in Washington, D.C., "when I was in high school." When Abrams asked how Carlson responded to being "bothered," Carlson asserted, "I went back with someone I knew and grabbed the guy by the -- you know, and grabbed him, and ... hit him against the stall with his head, actually."


UPDATE: Media Matters received the following statement from Tucker Carlson by email from an MSNBC spokeswoman:

Let me be clear about an incident I referred to on MSNBC last night: In the mid-1980s, while I was a high school student, a man physically grabbed me in a men's room in Washington, DC. I yelled, pulled away from him and ran out of the room. Twenty-five minutes later, a friend of mine and I returned to the men's room. The man was still there, presumably waiting to do to someone else what he had done to me. My friend and I seized the man and held him until a security guard arrived.

Several bloggers have characterized this is a sort of gay bashing. That's absurd, and an insult to anybody who has fought back against an unsolicited sexual attack. I wasn't angry with the man because he was gay. I was angry because he assaulted me.

well, as always, these to be taken with a grain of salt (or perhaps just a splash of soda on the rocks with a twist of lemon), but you hear rumors, and, well, they're more fun than anything, but here's a non exhaustive list of the not-yet-out:

Robbie Williams
Clay Aiken (duh)
Richard Gere
John Travolta
Kevin Klein
Kevin Spacey
Tom Selleck
Jonathan Taylor Thomas
Anderson Cooper
Shepard Smith
David Dreier (R-CA)
Anthony Hopkins

Women

Gillian Anderson
Carol Burnett
Sharon Gless

i'd probably do the same thing as Tucker.

the whole laughter thing is a bit high school locker room, but the actual situation doesn't seem all that unrealistic.

the point i want to keep hammering home, over and over again, is that this kind of bathroom/public behavior is a result of homophobia and life in the closet, and many of these men live otherwise "straight" lives. gay people who are out and happy and healthy and are able to go out with potential love interests to dinner, to the movies, to the theater, on vacation, etc., don't engage in this kind of behavior.

Tucker Carlson is a little piece of shit. I don't think the issue is really how he reacted (sure, it was inappropriate but I don't think it was out of the norm given how people might react in public restrooms), but why the hell he even told this story on TV while giggling like a schoolgirl. The man has no class, but then again that's nothing new. I think he has serious issues about his own sexuality and hang ups about his masculinity, to be frank.

Add Jake Gyllenhaal and Wentworth Miller to that list.

THAT CHOOSES TO DO PERVERT THINGS.

IT IS A CHOICE HE IS MAKING!!
Many gay men have had wives and children. That isn't a barometer of sexual identity. It's rather like telling a transgendered man that because he looks, walks, and talks like a woman that he IS a woman. Wrong, dead wrong.

I heard Jake and Reece are back together - i want them to have babies - they'd be Shiloh gorgeous!

but a REAL brokeback mountain Jake? and he'd find someone much better looking then heath ledger!

[/lemonade stand talk]

I just don't get the guys that assult people in toilets. Do they honestly think taking a swipe at another man's junk is gonna turn into everyone getting their freak on in the toilet? lol

Also, im not 100% sure what the story is here? Did he actually touch another man in the toot? Or did he get an eyeful when "picking up a piece of paper" (ewww on that who would touch paper on a toilet floor?)
i canna read between the lines?
