“I outed him as a straight person”

Well here’s something a bit different: in the 182nd district, Democrat Babette Josephs says she’s outed her opponent — as straight. Josephs claims challenger Gregg Kravitz is lying about being bisexual.  From the Inquirer: “”I outed him as a straight person,” Josephs said during a fund-raiser at the Black Sheep Pub & Restaurant, as some in the audience gasped or laughed, “and now he goes around telling people, quote, ‘I swing both ways.’ That’s quite a respectful way to talk about sexuality. This guy’s a gem.”

Kravitz, who insists he is, in fact, bisexual, responds: “That kind of taunting is going to make it more difficult for closeted members of the LGBT community to be comfortable with themselves. …It’s damaging.”
