We’ve told you that Jake Gyllenhaal is NOT gay, and his buddy, Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, agrees with us. He told Out magazine: “Will everyone stop thinking that dude is gay? Seriously guys. How immature is it of the media to perceive this guy — it has to be because of Brokeback, right? I’ve known this dude forever. He’s one of my oldest friends, and it’s very weird that they have this — it’s very immature and infantile the way they treat his whole situation. If him hanging out with his bros means he’s gay, it’s like further perpetuating that weird homophobia that exists in our culture, which is just stupid. So, yeah, he’s my buddy. I fuckin’ love the guy.” So wise up, you negative commenters out there who like to label everyone in Hollywood as gay!

    This isn’t funny nor satire. Ridiculous, like the whole Rock Hudson or Liberace issues.

    In the famous words of William Shakespeare:

    Translation: The more the fag Adam Levine protesteth, the more we believeth that Jake is gay, gay, gay.

    Isn’t this the Maroon 5 dude who once dressed up in drag for a “laugh” and made out onstage with John “Lookitme” Mayer? You’re not helping your macho woman-loving friend there, Adam.

    And as someone said in a previous post about this, people coming to his defense out of the blue like this when the subject isn’t even currently on the gossip radar just isn’t the type of thing that happens to truly straight fully grown men.

    Me thinks there is a bit too much protesting going on.

    The only reason I tend to believe anyone is gay in Hollywood is because of the insiders who spill the beans. I have no idea personally if any of them are gay, but when there are pics of Taylor Lautner at a Bryan Singer All-Gay pool party, you kinda gotta wonder if the rumours are true, right? So, with Jake, there are like 200 of the same-age male actors that have been rejected as the Toothy Tile blind item. Leaving mostly Jake Gyllenhaal. But do we know for certain? Nope. But isn’t that what gossip is all about? The speculation, whispering and guessing?

  13. By Palermo
    On September 23, 2010 at

    It’s like Tom Cruise always going on about his “amazing” family … or Will and Jada and their “hot sex life”. If any of it were remotely true they wouldn’t even have brought it up.

    Who really knows and why does it really matter? It seems to me that Hollywood’s a different place and these actors are pretty eccentric folks. I don’t think most of them are gay as Janet insinuates, but I do believe they’ve experimented in one way or another. To say that Jakey and the rest of his fellow actors swing both ways would make much better sense than saying he’s gay.

  16. By SebastianCanada
    On September 23, 2010 at

    Sally, women who are more straight than gay may experiment by having sex with another woman, but a man who is more straight than gay does not experiment by having sex with another man. If a guy is willing to mess around with another guys junk, he is GAY!

  17. By Rick
    On September 23, 2010 at

    Sebastian, as a man who can enjoy sex with both genders, I have to disagree with you. Given a sexual choice between an equally attractive man and woman, both previously unknown to me, I would choose the female every time. I can say this with certainty because I know myself, and have no hangups about admitting I enjoy sex with men too. I believe sexuality is on a continuum ranging from totally heterosexual to totally homosexual with a typical Bell Curve distribution of people on all points in between. I’m on one of those points in between, closer to the hetero end.

    As for Jake, I don’t have a very well developed ‘gaydar’ like some apparently do so I can’t honestly posture an opinion, but I can say that this tendency for people to suddenly come out of nowhere making a declaration of his exclusive heterosexuality strikes something similiar to a gaydar-ish or homophobic chord in me.

    Rick you’re so called bi and don’t have gaydar? Then how do you meet your boyfriends? And don’t gimme that crap about straight men come on to you MEN WHO HAVE SEX WITH OTHER MEN usually are gay and bang a chick or two to claim bisexuality.

    And how the hell old are you? Men over 40 who claim to be bi are gay.

  20. By Indy
    On September 24, 2010 at

    I’m dumb on this. Who buys more sex toys, gay men and women or straight men and women? In fact, I don’t know exactly all the activities and don’t want to. But I think I do have a touch of gay-dar.

  21. By Sally
    On September 24, 2010 at

    WTF is gaydar??????? Stereotyping much. You can’t always tell a person’s sexual orientation by looks or mannerisms. How small minded can a person get?

    And Sebastian, I work in a hospital and come across many many men, married or in a relationship with a woman, who contract STDs from flings with men. Shit happens. Your sexist comment about women being able to fool around and men being marginalized to choosing one-sex only is very disappointing. It’s sad coming from someone who claims he’s a pretty open-minded person.

    Men like women experiment and when they do it doesn’t mean they’re gay sweetie. It means they’ve got a pretty strong sex drive and love getting off wherever they can. As some have said to me, sorry for the graphic quote, “a hole is a hole.”

  22. By Sally
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Indy, when it comes to sexual practices of most people, ignorance is bliss. And that’s how I feel about sexuality. I don’t give a shit. I’m more interested in the person than what and who that person’s doing.

  23. By SebastianCanada
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Sally and Rick, there is simple logic to the argument that a guy who is really straight will not mess around with another guy: there are penises involved.

    With two guys together, sooner or later somebody wants to stick his penis somewhere. This requires more commitment – from both the pitcher and catcher – than anything two women can do together(pls don’t give me the dildo argument, it is weak).

    A straight guy might have one gay experience, because he got seduced, or was experimenting/curious, or got drunk and date raped, but a second encounter in which he willingly participates makes him gay. Any straight guy will tell you this, and any guy who will argue otherwise is gay and in denial.

  24. By SebastianCanada
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Sally, true: with no other choice, a guy will use whatever hole is available. But that is not relevant to the argument – we are talking about choice here.

  25. By Rick
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Hi Mel Zipskin. I’m a 27 year old college student studying for an advanced degree and said I don’t have a very well developed gaydar sense, which dosen’t mean I’m incapable of immediately recognizing homosexual tendencies in those who manifest more obvious indications. As for meeting boyfriends, I don’t go looking for indiscriminate sex with members of either gender. I meet and get to know people in the ordinary course of life, and as I get to know them better, if there’s a mutual attraction present, I become aware of it and so do they.

    My idea of person having gaydar is someone who can merely observe a person for a period of time without actually interacting with them, and independently reach a correct conclusion even if that person doesn’t manifest obvious indications.

    Personally, I’m kind of turned off by what seems to be the obsession with sexual orientation labeling in our society. It fosters a homophobic atmosphere and creates an unnatural and unhealthy situation where people begin to fear who they or others are instead of just being and enjoying who they and others are.

    I stand by what I said about the sexual orientation continuum and Bell Curve distribution. It’s the case with every other characteristic of human nature, and keeps reproving itself in my own personal experience. I can understand how this might be difficult to grasp for people who choose to live a life based almost exclusively on sexual orientation. But that’s kind of a narrowly limiting experience of life when you stop to think about it. We are all so much more than our sexual desires, and there’s so much more to life than those desires.

  26. By SebastianCanada
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Rick, if people are unwilling to own who they are it is a much bigger problem that others labeling them.

    There have been celebs who have treated ethnicity the same way others have treated their own homosexuality. I remember a silly incident in the 90′s when Sarah Michelle Geller skirted around her Jewish origins. She made some silly statement about Geller being a Swiss name. This rightly incense the Jewish community. Others have lied or bluffed about their hispanic or Afro origins. Tiger Woods is another one, trying to deny being a black American, whey he should have just said “I do have black blood. If you want to see my as black, fine, I am cool with that.”

    If you have no problem with who you are, why prevaricate and stall? And if you do have a problem, you have to deal with that first before you can demand anyone else accept you.

  27. By Rick
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Hi Sebastian. On the one hand I believe in every person’s right to privacy, and don’t believe in demanding that anyone accept me. On the other hand, while I don’t adhere to any prescribed notions in terms of revealing who I am and what I enjoy, I don’t make any attempt to hide either. I just view it as no big deal and live like it’s no big deal. And interestingly enough, most people seem to gravitate to my position, because, it seems, my personal comfort with myself makes them feel comfortable too. As for people who don’t respond that way, I won’t force myself on anyone, just as I don’t want anyone forcing themselves on me. Whether you agree with a person’s motivations or not, self determination is an innate aspect of the human experience, and you’ll get a lot further in practical terms by giving people all the room they need rather than trying to dictate how much room they ‘should’ need.

  28. By Sally
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Sebastian your comment on straight me is sexist and biased. Just because you’re not open to possibilities of experimentation doesn’t mean others aren’t. You’re speaking for the entire male species when you make such far-fetched comments just because you’re so gay and have keen knowledge about straight men. Get a grip. People are different and the world’s not so black and white. There’s always the gray area.

    “A hole is a hole” notion is a choice, my dear. And it’s very relevant to the claims your hellbent on making. A person chooses his/her sex partners and not everybody perscribes by your regimented views on sexuality. The best example is Richard Burton who had slept with both sexes and openly admitted to it. So does that make him purely gay?

  29. By Sally

    Oh and the Sarah Michelle Gellar reference is tacky. Religion and sexuality are different beasts. Learn to differentiate.

    The real story here? That Gyllenlump is terminally B O R I N G. Speculation over his sexuality may be the only reason people are talking about him these days, as opposed to his movies.

    And the combination of him with an equally uninteresting person? Deadly. When Reese was bearding for him they looked like Ike and Mamie Eisenhower together.

    Brokeback Director Ang Lee to Jake: “OK, basically I’m gonna need you to just lie there.”

    Jake: “Done!”

    Jon Haam is straight. Brad Pitt is straight. Jake is…… Not sure what he is but the rest of are. Is he’s “straight” then why is he so uptight that he has to make a big statement through his friends? A real straight guy would just laugh and make a big joke about it. Thou who protest too much…..

    On September 24, 2010 at

    I am totally on Sebastian’s side on this discussion. I don’t know a single hetero man who would even kiss another man, much less have sex with him. You might tell yourself you are bi, but you are a gay man who occasionally could have sex with a woman.

  35. By Barkley

    Janet you reveal your own homophobia when you say “Negative commenters” – what’s negative about being gay? And the reason you don’t want him to be gay is because you can’t get laid with a straight or a gay man!

  36. By Indy
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Ladies and gentlemen: At the risk of sounding boastful, I think my comment (10th one down) sums up the bottom line of this (the original topic) discussion.

  37. By Bettye Bluejay
    On September 24, 2010 at

    If a man is a “top” then he can be in denial about being gay, rather than a “bottom” who can’t be in denial.

    On September 24, 2010 at

    Hi Sally, thanks! Nice discussion. Thanks to you all as well. Have a great weekend.

  39. By SebastianCanada
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Sally, religion, ethnic origins, sexual preference are all the same in the context if this discussion. If you are bluffing and prevaricating about who you are, then you are ashamed of it, and have no right to expect acceptance from other people.

  40. By SebastianCanada
    On September 24, 2010 at

    Sally, you do not seem to understand the “hole is a hole” argument, perhaps, again, because you are a woman.

    A man needs to screw. If he is straight, and there is no woman around, he may come around to having sex with another man (see: prison). If there are no humans around, he may come around to having sex with an animal. The length of time it takes for a man to “come around” depends primarily on his sex-drive.

    This is called the psycology of the penis. You cannot possibly understand this as you do not have a penis, and it makes some of your comments extremely fatuous.

    I think allegedly straight men who bang trannys are closet cases too. Maybe Adam dresses up in a leather mini and heels and this convinces Jake that he’s really straight. lol.

    Ho-hum…I’m tired…Sally and Rick…I agree with you wholeheartedly.

  43. By Hello
    On September 25, 2010 at

    Sorry Sally, as a former dominatrix, I agree with S.C. There were many men that never tried sodomy or oral sex but once the dildo/cock is in and they are enjoying it then they are gay. A real man would stand firm and never commit to the act. Men are more likely to spread the disease to other men than to women. Once they experimented they are more likely to try again with other men to make sure that they like it that and feels good. Then the sex with woman is more forced or less likely. There are lots of men national and international that are cocksuckers. It’s the money that makes women look the other way.

  44. By Lenny
    On September 25, 2010 at

    Wow, crazy topic but I agree with Sebastian on this one. I don’t want anyone putting a penis in my ass or I know I fon’t want to do the same act. But if I was in prison who knows what you’ll do after years locked up. If you’re willing to have sex with a man in everyday life you’re gay, period. Because as a man that’s all you’ll think about.

  45. By Pierce_mn
    On September 25, 2010 at

    When they protest this much, they’re hiding something, but frankly, dear Jake, I don’t give a F*&^. You don’t really interest me as an actor. Now Christian Bale on the other hand…

  46. By SebastianCanada
    On September 25, 2010 at

    Pierce_mn, I agree, as – I am sure – do many more. Jake is dull as dishwater. And the gay rumours are serving him, as they are keeping him in the publics mind. Same with Adam, who is a decent songwriter and singer, but who has no personality or pizzazz.

  47. By Sally
    On September 25, 2010 at

    Such small-minded people. So a woman can be bi, but a man can’t? Silly me, the world isn’t so complicated after all. And all those men who’ve experimented are really really gay. So are Jake and Adam and so is every guy in prison.

    Sebastian, re-read my “a hole is a hole” comment. What you posted is what I said: some men will screw anything and it has nothing to do with their sexual preference.

    (A man needs to screw. If he is straight, and there is no woman around, he may come around to having sex with another man (see: prison). If there are no humans around, he may come around to having sex with an animal. The length of time it takes for a man to “come around” depends primarily on his sex-drive.)

    You totally contradict your argument that any “true straight” man wouldn’t want the penis unless they’re really gay. So you give a pass to guys in prison?

    No I don’t have a penis so I don’t understand. But you’re not a straight man so I guess you wouldn’t understand the other side of the argument.

  48. By Sally

    Closet HOMOS are gross. If you want to be gay or feel you were born that way then MAN UP and be that. Don’t drag some innocent woman into your life and fool her into thinking you are straight. That is so unfair!

    The bias, prejudice, and ignorance of a few is astonishing. For the record, AIDS originated in and spread from Africa.. by African heterosexuals.

    There is now conclusive evidence that HIV originated in Africa. A 10-year study completed in 2005 found a strain of Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) in a number of chimpanzee colonies in south-east Cameroon that was a viral ancestor of the HIV-1 that causes AIDS in humans.

    A complex computer model of the evolution of HIV-1 has suggested that the first transfer of SIV to humans occurred around 19303, with HIV-2 transferring from monkeys found in Guinea-Bissau, at some point in the 1940s.

    Studies of primates in other continents did not find any trace of SIV, leading to the conclusion that HIV originated in Africa.

    Experts studying the spread of the epidemic suggest that about 2,000 people in Africa may have been infected with HIV by the 1960s.

    It was in Kinshasa in the 1970s that the first epidemic of HIV/AIDS is believed to have occurred.

    HIV was brought there by an infected individual who traveled from Cameroon by river down into the Congo. On arrival in Kinshasa, the virus entered a wide urban sexual network and spread quickly.

    The world’s first Hetero-sexually-spread HIV epidemic had begun.

    Enjoy island life strom.

    Sally, there is a difference between a man choosing a particular hole when all options are available to him, and taking the only available orifice when he has forgotten the last time he had sex. If you do not get that small point, I see no point in arguing this with you.

    I knew all along that Jake Gyllenhall was not Gay and it was a part..He played in a movie and for a million dollars I would kiss a girl for the money and yes…It is true he could had turned down that roll but who would in there right mind. Money and a job is a job and as long as you don’t have to do every thing…Then it is a good job and a good pay check and it is all done in good and fun and when some one is Gay…There is something about the way they walk and the way they sit and other things but this guy was acting and for the money and that big fat juicy pay check…Why not!
