An article from "The Hill" discusses a new documentary concerning public officials’ rights to privacy end and political outings. It raises the point that although the shock, relevance, sensation, whathaveyou of outings regardings a politicians sexual orientation is becoming less than it used to be, that the issue of hypocrisy is still central. As way of example the articles shares the quote:“If someone is on the Environmental Committee and is throwing Styrofoam at seagulls, they should be outed,” he said.
In the case of politicians who are gay and yet consistently endorse anti-gay law making is the need to reveal this hypocrisy more important than the individuals right to privacy?
