I have a question for you all and I would very much like your opinion on this.
As we now know there has been quite a few kings who’ve been gay and most of them have been forced to hide it, while others were open about it. Here are is a short list of just a few of England’s gay kings and queens. Some were openly gay and some were allegedly gay.
- King William Rufus (1087 – 1110)
- Richard The Lionheart (1189-1199) (Alleged)
- Edward II (1307-27)
- James I (1603 – 1625)
- Anne (1702 – 1714)
Do you think that world leaders (at least in the Western world) could be open about being gay? Should they be? Would it impact their relations with their people and abroad?
My personal feelings on this is that they should be openly gay. There should be a first gentleman or lady. There is nothing shameful about it and it’s natural and people need to learn that and leave it alone. Since not every country is on board with homosexuality I can see how it would impact relations with certain countries and that’s really not fair and it would be a whole new battlefield for homosexuals to overcome but I believe they could do it. The human race could do it. People seem to find it easier to persecute than to love. It’s the desire for persecution than I’ll never understand. It’s so groundless. It’s like persecuting someone because they have blue eyes.
