In who really gives a damn what you think news, uninspired “actor” Rupert Everett decides to let the world know that he does not like gay couples raising children. In a recent interview, Everett particularly pointed to gay men having children:
“I can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads. Some people might not agree with that. Fine! That’s just my opinion.”
Then he tries to clarify that he meant no harm but fails miserably:
I’m not speaking on behalf of the gay community. In fact, I don’t feel like I’m part of any ‘community’,” (well it’s probably when you make asinine comments like this, is why people in general don’t like you moron)“The only community I belong to is humanity and we’ve got too many children on the planet, so it’s good not to have more.”
Usually I would try to present both arguments to this debate but I’m not. Not wasting you the fellow reader’s time or my time. It it such a self loathing thing to say filled with arrogance and a severe lack of insight. Also keep in mind this isn’t the first time he’s said something flat out stupid. A couple of decades ago he encouraged gay actors to stay in the closet (remorse for his own flailing career? Most likely)
Is he entitled to his own idiotic opinion? of course, everyone is allotted that privilege. Is his opinion based on research? probably not. Is this recent statement a way to get attention? Probably.
