I had no idea what section to put this in.


Well, here goes. I really resent the term, but I use it because it’s recognized and accepted. I’m gay.

From some seventy years of personal experience, I can tell you that there’s not much “gay” about being homosexual. For the first twenty years of my life, I had to live in the shadows, in a culture that was — at least outwardly — totally hostile to any hint of that variation of life-style. At no time did I choose to adopt any protective coloration, though; my cultivation of an abundant beard was not at all a deception, but part of my costume as a conjuror.


www.randi.org...


So, for someone who has made a career "outing" people for being deceitful, is the amazing Randi a hypocrite? I don't really care that he's gay, but the fact that he's hunted down people who claim to be something they're not is... interesting? funny? What do you think?

Do not ever go for his challenge, he is just a gov front trying to get people to come out. You will never win no matter who you are.

This geezer is an absolute con man.

I think it's his business.
Comparing "outing" fake and fraudulent paranormal deciet to protecting his personal privacy is ridiculous. Care to post your full name and location, plus your detailed sexual preferences?
Who cares if he's gay?

What do you think?


I think this is a silly thread....

The guy is Gay....What's the big deal?

Oh right I forgot, it isn’t a big deal at all.

And I see no reason to create a thread about the subject, this is James Randi's personal life and it's not really any of our business what he does in it.

You dont care that he's gay, yet you thought it warranted a thread about it?

How can you compare someones provate life, to their exposing of fradulent psychics and other hoaxers? It simply isnt the same

Maybe you are one of the ones that just hate Randi

Did he ever claim to not be gay?

The whole issue is irrelevant. Other than reading at the link he considers himself to be in good company and cites Barney Frank as one of the examples...


As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

I don't recall him ever claiming that he wasn't gay. Don't ask, don't tell. No hypocrisy there. As for him being a government agent... huh?

Ok? So he is a gay pseudoskeptic? Don't get me wrong the man has made some great points, but remember he is a magician. A gay man in theatre is hardly newsworthy.

No maybe about it. I can't stand that arrogant prick.


And for all you people claiming it's no big deal, why get so upset? If this thread is of no interest to anyone, just let it die.

In other words this is simply a troll thread, sole purpose to bash James Randi. Obviously you think his sexuality is another "black mark" against him, otherwise you wouldnt have started this thread

This is a totally pointless thread.
What possible interest is anyone's sexual preferences, orientation or practices?
How very Victorian of you.
