Anti-Gay State Rep used Craigslist to find male prostitute

I’m beginning to think there are more closeted gay Republicans than there are open Democrat ones, since it seems as though every other day some anti-gay rights crusader gets caught trying to have sex with someone of the same gender. Today’s totally disgraced hypocrite is Indiana State Rep. Phillip Hinkle, who was caught trying to hire a male prostitute on Craigslist.

I say try, since the entire ordeal was just weird, uncomfortable for everyone, and fraught with crazy drama:

The young man told The Star that they met, but that he tried to leave after the man told him he was a state lawmaker. He said the lawmaker at first told him he could not leave, grabbed him in the rear, exposed himself to the young man and then later gave him an iPad, BlackBerry cellphone and $100 cash to keep quiet.

Ok, first lesson is free Phil: if you’ve got a high profile job, don’t cheap out last minute trying to buy someone’s silence. Also, it’s generally a bad idea to give them your fucking cellphone with all your contact information, genius.

Megan Gibson [the sister of the young man] said that on the drive back, she began receiving a series of calls on the BlackBerry, including one from a woman who said she was Hinkle’s wife. “I was like, ‘Your husband is gay,’ ” Megan said.

The wife eventually tried to buy her off for 10 grand (at least someone was thinking straight), but by then the cat was already WAY out of the bag.

So what’s left for this guy? I’d love to believe that perhaps Phil will take this opportunity to embrace his love of cocks and balls and quit living a lie, but by now I think we’re already painfully familiar with how these things turn out: denial followed by admitting to a “moment of weakness” culminating into some kind of “pray the gay away” retreat. Meanwhile, the fact that this hypocrite piece of shit co-sponsored a constitutional amendment to prevent gays from marrying gets conveniently forgotten. Fantastic.

    This sort of thing is quickly becoming cliche. It’s hilarious.

    It’s amazing (-ly stupid) how some people think they can live one life in the public eye under scrutiny on their every move, and even co-sponsor a constitutional amendment, and also try to live their life as they should (i.e. if you’re gay, you’re gay, get over it).

    Seriously, if you’re gay, just fucking be gay. No one cares. Sure, your local church might be annoyed, but fuck ’em! Society has moved on.

    I’m gay. There, I said it. I’m not American though, and when a politician comes out in the UK no one cares. People actually applaud it, as we need MPs of all types to represent the views of the public.

    Still, sure is funny to see how this kind of thing plays out again and again in the US political sphere…

    This is how truly unprepared some people thought to be adults actually are for the real world. I think this is also a side effect of the belief, peddled in many religions, that we exist on a plane of reality that is also some battlefield for two or more fighting factions, and we’re the fodder that’s manipulated one way or the other into serving whichever cause. I mean, what do you say about these people? “Moment of weakness”? More like a moment of realization that you’ve been kidding yourself, and are now incapable of dealing with your natural impulses like a freaking human being while on the way to wreck others’ lives, not because you’re gay, but because you either didn’t speak up for someone else, or helped perpetrate one group’s hatred upon another.

    Any chance this guy also railed about GOProud and the Log Cabin Republicans at some point? Probably.

    When I first heard about the Hinkle incident I thought “Yet another closeted hypocrite bites the dust.” Then I got to thinking maybe he really is concerned about defending marriage. It is reasonable to assume that for every “defense of family” politician or religous leader who is exposed in a gay tryst there are a couple of dozen who are smart enough not to get caught. Doing a little math one finds that roughly 1/3 are actual closeted homosexuals. Given the well known self-control issues politicians and religous leaders have with all things sexual, Hinkle an his cohorts probably realize that if gay marriage were to be made legal, then they could not resist the temptation to leave their wives and marry their lovers.
