Kevin Spacey Blasted for Using His Sexuality to Cover for Sexual Misconduct Claim

Kevin Spacey Blasted for Using His Sexuality to Cover for Sexual Misconduct Claim

Media used it for cover, too.

On Sunday night, BuzzFeed published an interview with actor Anthony Rapp, who accused Kevin Spacey of making a sexual advance on him when he was only 14-years-old over 30 years ago.

Spacey stated he did not remember the incident, but also used the opportunity to officially come out as a gay man, which has been speculated for many years.

Now many, especially in the LGBT community, have blasted Spacey for using his sexuality as cover for his alleged sexual misconduct. They have a point because I noticed a lot in the media making the story about Spacey’s sexuality instead of Rapp’s claims.

Rapp explained that in 1986, Spacey invited him to a party at his apartment. Rapp saw that he was the only kid there and went to the bedroom to watch TV. After everyone left, Spacey came to the bedroom, “picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance.”

Spacey released this statement:

So not only is he trying to use his sexuality to deflect from the real issue at hand, he’s also exploiting the worst stereotype of gay men: child predators.

It didn’t take long for people to lash out at him:

At The Daily Beast, Ira Madison III penned an article on how Spacey’s statement “grossly conflates pedophilia with homosexuality.” He wrote:

For Spacey to say, “if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior,” implies that when most gay men get drunk, it’s second nature for them to prey on a 14-year-old boy. It calls to mind hateful rhetoric like Anita Bryant’s 1977 Save Our Children campaign, which sought to associate gay men and child predators. Of gay men, Bryant infamously said, “Some of the stories I could tell you of child recruitment and child abuse by homosexuals would turn your stomach.”

Seth Mandel, op-ed editor of the New York Post, asked his gay friends on Twitter for their reaction to Spacey’s statement:

You can take a wild guess what they said:

It also didn’t take very long for the media to latch onto the second half of the statement, burying the accusations against Spacey.

The New York Daily News originally tweeted out that “Kevin Spacey announced Sunday night that he will ‘live as a gay man'” before it decided to use some common sense:

Why do we hate the media?

Gay or straight 14 years old is in the pedophilia category. Especially when there is over a decade separating them. If Rapp were replaced with a girl that age, what’s different?

    Well, for starters she’d be a year older than the girl that Roman Polanski raped, and Hollywood is all-good with that.

    If he had been 13, it wouldn’t be rape rape, and he would get a standing ovation at the Oscars.

    Now if the kid said it was no big deal, then Antifa would riot at his speeches.

So if Dirty Harvey Weinstein comes out as straight, overweight and thinning hair should that absolve him of accusations of molestation?

I’ve always loved Spacey’s performances. Damn! I don’t care that he’s gay.

Okay, could this be one of the guys Corey Feldman talks about??

    Why the down votes? Cause I don’t care if someone is gay? It’s none of my business, is it yours? Anyway, maybe the down voters could give an explanation….or is do you prefer to be drive-by down voters, lol.

    I’ve noticed some people get down-voted for what I see as perfectly reasonable comments, go figure. I like the Prof’s posts, though, and most of the comments are very intelligent and thought-provoking.

    😀

      Most of us don’t care that he’s gay – its that he tried to hit on a 14 year old… let that sink in.

        Thank you, thank you for replying! It occurred to me that maybe my original comment was ambiguous.

        As a survivor (details not necessary) I was appalled to learn about Spacey and pretty disgusted that he tried to use his orientation to deflect from his behavior.

It’s amazing how useful that Rainbow can be if a shield is needed…isn’t it…?

The significance of his transgender orientation, “homosexual”, is in selection of his victims, and also a popular belief that male transgender/homosexuals are on average more promiscuous than the general population. Perhaps that’s why association with the institution of marriage was so critical to transgender activists and establishing political congruence.

Spacey wrote, “As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women.”

No wonder he was so good in House of Cards, with its various intimate threads. He wasn’t acting.

They’re gonna put me in the movies
They’re gonna make a big star out of me
We’ll make a film about a man that’s sad and lonely
And all I gotta do is act naturally

Just as a comment and correction, “pedophilia” usually means abuse of a pre-pubescent child. The victim here was 14, and I’m guessing not in that category, so this was abuse of a minor. The abuse of pubescent teenaged boys by adult male homosexuals is one of the stereotypes which has some foundation in reality. It’s not that every adult male homosexual does this, of course, but there is a percentage large enough to make it a concern for the parents of teenaged boys.

It’s disgusting, whatever one’s orientation, to see Spacey try to use his “gay” orientation as an excuse for sexual assault on a child or teenager.

Boo Hoo. Thirty years ago?? WTF?? And only now you want to make a comment, a claim, a charge. Just get over it. If it was important you would have done something then. Now it’s just nonsense, white noise and irrelevant and bordering on slander.

    Speaking from experience he was probably to embarrassed to say anything about it at the time and attempted to suppress the memory. Luckily my attacker is no longer with us and I don’t have to ever see him.

Just as soon as we all succumb to the notion that sex and gender are the same thing, and that there are no such things as males and females, then the Left will start attacking “maturity” or “adulthood” as the next social, random construct. After all, 18 is an arbitrary line to draw for “adulthood” and “consent.”

We’ve all known very mature 12 and 13 year-olds, haven’t we? And many teenagers are getting more physically mature, earlier, haven’t you heard? Why restrict adults to other adults, when some adults are clearly less mature than some teenagers?

All in the name of progress, equality, diversity, and what feels good, friend. And love…. Gay love, man-man love, woman-woman love, man-child love, teacher-student love. Ah, love. You can’t argue with love.

Love conquers all, right?

Right?

Spacey claims he was drunk at the time. Did he give alcohol to the 14 year old in question?

Looks like Mr. Spacey has adopted the persona of Francis Underwood all too well.

Hollywood’s ability to moralize with a straight face has been nuked.

It was only a matter of time before the left’s moralism caught up with its licentiousness. Now perhaps some will develop an interest in the forgiveness found in Jesus of Nazareth.
