Elected President Emmanuel Macron was rumoured to be gay and this is how he answered to the rumours
A person close to Macron told him: “A man I know said to me: Macron cannot be president because he is homosexual.”
And this is what Macron answered:
“There are two things wrong in that sentence. First of all, it’s misogynistic. Just because my wife is 24 years older than me, people assume that I must be gay or a gigolo. If I was the one who was 24 years older than my partner, no one would have said a thing. So this comment is misogynistic and moreover, it’s homophobic. If I were homosexual, I would have said it, because it’s not a problem, it would not keep me from being president.”
I voted for this guy for many reasons, but I think this just added one more to the list.
I honestly posted this in a rage of anger and frustration and hurt and didn’t plan on keeping it up on my Facebook at all, but 800+ likes, 200 supportive comments, and shit tons of messages later…not only did I not realize I even had this many friends, but friends who love and support me when my family chose not to. I am thankful and I am feeling loved.
