      right?! that one pic of him in “that outfit” was pretty telling, but I think the pics of him at Coachella making out with another man with his hand down the guys pants was enough of a “coming out”.

      he can go scratch though, until he apologizes for all his anti-LGBTQI stuff.

  2. Nev says:

    I can’t. and I’m gay.

    Aaron – Boy Bye
    Have all the seats
    Accept all the shade
    Listen to this tiny violin while you shed your hypocritical, sellout, crocodile tears
    Sip on this big steaming cup of STFU, with IDGAF sprinkles

    If the punishment for actively working to oppress LGBTQ people, is that you can’t go home for Easter – THAT IS NOT ENOUGH.

  4. Veronica S. says:

    Get wrecked, loser. I hope nobody in the LGBT+ community is stupid enough to make space for your useless, criminal ass.

    I cannot believe we wasted our one Clinton presidency on Bill of all people.

  5. dumbledork says:

    Was it Bill’s anxiety that made him abuse all those other women too?

    • Mustang Sally says:

      A lot of people do a lot of stupid sh*t for various reasons. Instead of drugging or drinking, perhaps he used sex as a form of escape from everyday pressure. The fact that he preyed on vulnerable/women over which he had power or young women is sickening.

      I can say that when my dad was dying, I had an affair. No excuse other than the distraction of the affair kept me from focusing on my dad’s terminal illness – that is the reason I behaved as I did. I made my amends to all affected – there was no excuse for my sh*tty behavior. There’s a difference between reason and excuse.

    I will never understand how anyone can be so conflicted to dispense hatred amongst their own.

    Wth…18 years of marriage and he’s 88 years old. What really happened with the Shatners?

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Unfortunately, it’s something that’s not rare enough within marginalized communities- LGBT people and women can seem extra prone to it in some ways. A lot of times these types embrace victim-blaming as strength/accountability and are convinced that they’re ‘one of the good ones’ for being obedient and being willing to help punch down. They’ll often tell people in different ways that members of their group(s) who experience abuse, trauma, or sometimes worse from homophobes and misogynists brought their suffering on themselves by not following ‘the rules’ like they did. That if those others hadn’t been so weak, stayed in the closet/ hadn’t put themselves out there, had been less flawed, hadn’t been so uppity about the homophobia or misogyny or in trying to protect anyone else from it, had prayed, etc. everything would be fine.

  7. Appletartin says:

    The only thing that is shocking is how badly the prosecutor bungled his criminal case that he slithered out of it. But that Downton Abby office was fabboooolloooos!

  8. Falula says:

    F that guy. He was my rep and he was horrible. No room to apologize to the lgbtq+ community in that nine slide announcement? Go away.

  9. CantTakeHerAnywhere says:

    Ugh, I had an argument with my ex where I said, “mark my words, Schock will come out as gay in the next five years.” Three years later… Too bad we are no-contact and I have to comment here instead of gloating to his face. Oh well!

    The money is in the breeding shed. Shatner is big into warmbloods & their sperm can be purchased from catalogs. It’s called man in a can. You order it & your vet does the deed. We are Thoroughbred breeders where live cover is required in order for the horse to be certified thoroughbred.

    We are talking huge money. For example, Street Cry (thoroughbred) is a stud that currently goes for $300k a stud. During breeding season, which just started, he is booked twice a day. Some of the eventing warmbloods can go up to 100k a can. I can understand Trying to hang on to that income.

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      Exactly. Not sure where the joke is? I mean if you had a race horse and he dies, you sell the semen off and make bank. This is about preserving bloodlines and making money off of it.

    • Veronica says:

      Yeah, superficially it’s hilarious. In context, it’s an understandable point of financial negotiation because the money in horse breeding is really in the stallions.

    • Abby says:

      I thought he had Arabians? In any case, you’re right. Outside of thoroughbreds, breeding by artificial insemination has become the norm and that horse semen is super valuable.

      • Snappyfish says:

        @abby You are right he has Arabians too but he makes most of his Breeding money on his warmbloods. A few of the Eventers in the last Olympics were of his bloodstock

    LOVE the Andrew Gn collection. Best collection I’ve seen this year.

    Speaking of supermarket tabloids, who is paying off US to so vehemently trash the Sussexes every issue, without any actual “facts?” Thanks.

  12. lucy2 says:

    No joke, I know of someone who is/was using that Clinton excuse to cheat on their spouse too.

    I love the Andrew Gn collection! I would wear a lot of it (if I were 6′ tall and 100 lbs!) Some of the fancier gowns are gorgeous.

  13. Orangegirl says:

    Love Duas video! The hair fits the theme!

  14. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I am so surpriiiiised. *yawn*

    In re: Clinton, people will do a lot of sh*t to cope with anxiety. I’ve done some things I’m not proud of (though cheating on my spouse is not one of them). He’s still a POS but I understand where he’s coming from.

    I love Kids in the Hall! So glad they’ll be back!
