Newark Mayor Cory Booker is not gay after all

Newark Mayor Cory Booker is not gay after all

Hope springs eternal for single women who had their eye on Newark Mayor Cory Booker but weren’t sure about his sexual proclivities.

A recently unearthed article from Booker’s college days reveals that the aspiring senator once hated gays with a passion.

According to NYmag.com, “the school paper at Stanford, where Booker played football, dug up a 1992 op-ed column in which Booker confronts his homophobia.”

Booker was supposedly in his “tolerance stage,” when he wrote:

“I stopped telling my gay jokes. Fags, flamers and dykes became homosexuals and people of differing sexual orientation and, of course, I had my gay friend.” But: “I was disgusted by gays. The thought of two men kissing each other was about as appealing as a frontal lobotomy.”

He added: “Allow me to be more direct, escaping the euphemisms of my past — I hated gays. The disgust and latent hostility I felt toward gays were subcategories of hatred, plain and simple.”

Booker’s self-cleansing column seems to dispute rumors that he is a closeted homosexual. Is it possible for a man to be virulently homophobic and still be gay? One published study suggests that it is within the realm of possibility.

The study, which analyzed four separate experiments conducted in the US and Germany, provides empirical evidence to suggest that in some individuals homophobia is the external manifestation of repressed sexual desires they feel towards their own gender.

[bold emphasis mine]

It was a gay counselor who helped Booker to come to terms with his hatred for gays.

“…it didn’t take me long to realize that the root of my hatred did not lie with gays but with myself. It was my problem. A problem I dealt with by ceasing to tolerate gays and instead seeking to embrace them.”

But if Mr. Booker is not gay, what is he? How could Booker be a straight man with no apparent history of dating women? Maybe he hates women just as passionately as he once hated the gays?

      funny thing is we just had this convo Yesterday WUT presented this same scenario to us . .
      But if Mr. Booker is not gay, what is he? How could Booker be a straight man with no apparent history of dating women?

    • Pickachu Tran

      :coffee: Never thought Booker was a gay man.. I think he’s just very busy and a bit of a Nerd he probably has a hard time approaching women thats all.

    • LadieLeo

      I don’t understand why folk have to be all public about their business. Just because we aren’t seeing that man with some broad doesn’t mean he hates women. If we saw the man with a broad then folk would find it necessary to critique her, him, them. I say do you Mr. Booker, Do You!

      An Indiana woman whose young son was abducted 19 years ago was screaming and “jumping up and down” after learning he was living in Minnesota under a different name, her husband said Thursday shortly after police announced they had found him.
      Richard Wayne Landers Jr. was just 5 years old when he and his paternal grandparents, who were upset over custody arrangements, disappeared from Wolcottville, a town about 30 miles north of Fort Wayne.
      Indiana State Police said the now 24-year-old Landers was found in Long Prairie, Minn., thanks in part to his Social Security number. His grandparents were living under aliases in a nearby town and confirmed his identity, investigators said.
      Police declined to say whether the grandparents would face charges, citing the ongoing investigation.
      Landers’ mother, Lisa Harter, was “jumping up and down for joy” when investigators told her a few days ago that her son had been found, her husband Richard Harter told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
      He said his wife is “the happiest woman on earth.”

      I used to go out to parties
      And stand around
      ’cause I was too nervous
      To really get down
      But my body yearned to be free
      I got up on the floor and thought
      Somebody could choose me
      No more standin’ there beside the walls
      I done got myself together baby
      And now I’m havin’ a ball
      As long as you’re groovin’
      There’s always a chance
      Somebody watches
      Might wanna make romance
      Move your body, ooo baby, you dance all night
      To the groove and feel alright
      Everybody’s groovin’ on like a fool
      But if you see me spread out and let me in
      Baby just party high and low
      Let me step into your erotic zone
      Move it up
      Turn it ’round
      Ooo Shake it down
      OOWWWW
      You can love me when you want to babe
      This is such a groovy party baby
      We’re here face to face
      Everybody’s swingin’
      This is such a groovy place
      All the young ladies are so fine!
      You’re movin your body easy with no doubts
      I know what you thinkin’ baby
      You wanna turn me out
      Think I’m gonna let you do it babe

      Keep on dancin’
      You got to get it
      Got to give it up :whistle:

    • Pickachu Tran

      I know a guy just like him, he doesn’t date…he doesnt want marriage or a relationship. He does have a “bed warmer” chick who fukks him right whenever he calls. And he is fine with that. Women need to stop jumping to conclusions about these single men.

      But the dude who is running around with different women is the one who secretly likes to have white men dig up in his dooky hole. DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER…

      This is crazy already. Should we all wear stickers on our forehead saying what our sexual orientation is? The only issue I have with straight or gay is if you are sexual with someone and you lie about the other people you sleep with or if you are out in public being inappropriate sexually (I no longer take my daughter to San Francisco since it is legal to walk around naked there and people do it too freely)
