The Oscar for Best Attempt at Excusing Sexual Perversion goes to Kevin Spacey. Who turned an accusal of child molestation into a gay man coming out story extravaganza. The statue? A small bronze penis. With a large hand wrapped ‘round it. Mr. Spacey’s tale was a distraction that totally worked on the mainstream media. Not so much the LGBT community.
They were justifiably pissed off.
“He doesn’t get a pass just because he’s gay,” says Josh Rivers, the newly-appointed editor of Gay Times.
Linda Riley, publisher of Diva magazine and co-founder of the British LGBT Awards, says it was “disappointing” that the actor chose this moment to come out, adding: “I felt it was deflecting from the allegations.
“There’s been so many times he could’ve come out in the past and he hasn’t. That’s his choice but he should’ve used this time to own the apology, and so to make it about himself instead was disgusting, basically.”

Kevin Spacey has just invented something that has never existed before: a bad time to come out.

Nope to Kevin Spacey's statement. Nope. There's no amount of drunk or closeted that excuses or explains away assaulting a 14-year-old child.

This goes to the mindset of the Hollywood left. They think they can get away with anything as long as they vote the right way or think the right things. In Spacey’s case, being a member of the privileged LGBTQAAIP (silent F) community. He thought “Sure, I made a pass at a boy, but my underwear is rainbow striped” would work. Not so.
It’s a strong leftist belief, mainly because it works. Leftists manage to get away with everything so long as they tick the D box and vote accordingly. Then play gratuitous lip service to whatever cause the left celebrates any given day.
Look how quickly the press said “Hey, look how brave Spacey is coming out, this will be great for clicks” while ignoring that Spacey’s “coming out” was in response to BEING ACCUSED OF MOLESTING A 14-YEAR-OLD.
Slight of hand tricks work best when the hand isn’t reaching for a boy’s dick. Pro-tip.
Kudos to the LGBT community for not standing for it.
