No Politicians!

Monday, May 10, 2010

True, George Rekers isn't a politician. However, he definitely made a life and career in the world of politics -- namely by campaigning against gay marriage, gay rights, and basically anything that would make the LGBT community safer and more equal in the United States.

Like many a Christian right-winger, however, Rekers had a lot of emotional baggage. Clearly, a man who publicly condemns gays only to go on a 10-day trip to Spain with a rent boy isn't right in the head. I won't waste any time wondering why Rekers did what he did -- it simply isn't important.

(OK, I lied. Personally, I think Rekers has been gay his entire life, but for some reason, never left the fire-breathing Baptist religion he practiced. As such, he was unable to have a stable partner and was left with rent boys. A sad situation indeed.)

So, what's the moral of this story? Simple: Don't sleep with politicians -- especially if you're an escort. Politicians always get caught, especially if they're high-profile hypocrites. The rent boy in question -- professionally known as "Lucien" though I think his real name has been released -- is now in dire need of a PR team.

A good PR team can protect him from the media, set up a few choice interviews, and make sure his online reputation gets a good spring cleaning. He seems to be safe for now, though I can only imagine how hard the papers here in Miami have been hounding him this past week.

Remember: An escort must take care in selecting their clients. Why? Because escorts thrive on anonymity. It's one of many things that separates us from street walkers, and enables us to live a relatively anonymous existence. Without out, we're ruined. No one wants to be publicly seen with an escort. We work best under the cover of night.

That being said, I'm glad that Rekers was outed. He's a miserable bastard, and he deserves every bit of misery this scandal brings him.
