No, Eric Cantor Is Not Gay

Lots of folks have been tossing around the rumor that Eric “Tea Party Jew” Cantor is gay. There is no evidence whatsoever that he is gay and a whole lot of evidence that he is not. Cantor comes from the aristocratic class of the White South. It is not widely known that more than a few of these highfalutin fellows, though heterosexual, can be somewhat effeminate. Cantor’s somewhat effeminate and more properly effete behavior is the impetus for these rumors.
There is one more thing to consider here. Cantor is Jewish. Jewish guys are not exactly known for their machismo. They’re no gayer than any other male ethnic group in the US, but nerdy, wimpy or effete heterosexual Jewish are not uncommon. So this is apparently yet another case of mistaken identity along the lines of, “He’s not gay, he’s Jewish!”
If you are interested in who’s gay or bi and who’s not in US politics, with focus on the US Senate and House, governors and political operatives of both parties, most of them tightly closeted, check out this earlier piece of mine.
A lot of people say, “So what!” when you bring up this subject. But I think it is important.
Why, you ask. Well, the fact that apparently Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Chris Cristie and Karl Rove are queer or bi is definitely something the public ought to know about. So here I am, Paul Revere-like, spreading the word on who’s queer.
What! Did someone just say George Stephanopoulos? Shhh.

  1. That southern genteel effeminate aspect (in addition to looking scared half the time) was as much a part of Jimma Cahtuh’s downfall as the economy and the Iranian hostage crisis were.
