Adam Lambert on Sexuality: Gay Men Scare Americans

by at . Comments

The latest issue of Out magazine names Adam Lambert its Breakout Star of 2009.

In an interview with the publication, Lambert dishes on his life as a celebrity, saying: “Fame doesn’t freak me out. I can handle it. But sometimes out in public there are people that just are so rude."

But the singer saves his most controversial statement for a discourse on sexuality. He says many folks are grossed out by the concept of gay men:

“To some people, me being sexual is really offensive because I’m gay. They’re like, ‘He’s being really gay.’ And I’m like, actually, ‘No, I’m just being sexual.’ Male sexuality is frightening to America [but] female sexuality is all over the place.”

We couldn't agree more. Critics can make all the religious or moral arguments they want to. But if only lesbians wanted to get married, no one would care.

Too many Americans are simply disgusted by the image of guys sleeping together. As a result, they spit on the rights and happiness of their fellow man.

Will Lambert's comments negatively effect his debut album sales? We hope not. But, either way, we admire the singer for speaking his mind.
