First, just to get it out there, I’m very pro-LGBTQ rights, and anyone should be free to be what they want sexually so long as it doesn’t hurt someone else.
Second, I care about who is gay only as a matter of curiosity; e.g., if people say someone is gay, I might wonder, Oh, is that really true?
So… it would never have crossed my mind that Clooney is gay. I hadn’t thought much about it. But my gay Pilates teacher not only thinks so but was telling the whole class his theory about how he is gay and the studio has him marry beards and whatnot. He was quite insistent that it was so! I also asked my gay friend on FB with whom I talk just about every day what he thought, and he agreed that Clooney was gay, though he couldn’t cite an exact reason.
I also happened upon a theory that Jay Z is gay and Bey is his beard. I was just looking up his status as a rapper (good or bad), and this theory was all over the place.
So do are beards really still a thing in 2016?
