I posted about KHC being gay. I knew when I post it, it would make people uncomfortable, because talking about sex makes american uncomfortable. BUT instead of folks being allowed to talk about my post, the Moderator in his infinite wisdom and self-righteousness decided to locked it.

Whats the matter MOD can't handle sex?  So much for free speech.  You know what MOD that KHC talk could have went anywhere.  KHC is not old news to me.

Being a victim of %$#@$ happened to me and others years ago, and we still talk about *&^%$$ on Facebook now.

How dare you MOD!

This is my last post.  I'm done with Exisle.

Gonna miss reading, Entranced.


THE END!!!

Where are you getting your information?  Because as far as I know (though I admit I don't know everything) he hasn't made an announcement one way or the other.

The 'is he gay / is he not gay' debate has plagued Kieth's fandom for as long as I can remember.  And IMO it's a really stupid thing to argue about.  If he were to announce, one way or the other, it would be fine.  And not saying at all, is also fine.  But if he hasn't said one way or the other, then any conversation on the subject is nothing more than rumors.  And I don't presume to speak for everyone here, but personally I don't believe rumors (of this sort) belong on this site.

If you want to discuss something that has been officially announced somewhere, it would go over much better if you provide a link to where you read the information.  It is how we usually do things here anyway, so a post without a link is far more likely to be questioned as rumors or gossip.  So I am genuinely curious:  if you read this somewhere, I'd like to read it for myself (partly to judge the trustworthiness of the source myself).  :)

Another reason why the mod may have locked the thread, is because we try to avoid discussing the private lives of public figures.  That's not about being a prude, it's basic courtesy.

Pete Seeger's life was a picture of an idea in flight, and the idea will continue long after.  As long as there are people with goodness and courage in their hearts, the idea will continue forever.

Well and the other thing is "free speech" isn't always free.  Too many people assume that free speech means that you can say stuff and be consequence free, you are NEVER consequence free, say whatever you want but others may not like what you say and they can have their free speech.  Plus this is a private message board and you don't get free speech on private message boards.

That racist, sexist slur against KHC's fans might have had something to do with it.

Thanks Cait :)

At the least, the comment seemed to beg for an enflamed response.  That is why I locked the thread.

Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man.
