Hola a todos. Not another one. Can someone please remind me as to what the now-dead Gay and Lesbian Rights Movement accomplished over the decades? It seems like damn little was accomplished when you see a gay guy on television who is married to his boyfriend and they bought a house together, but the guy who’s on television says he’s not gay. Sigh. (roll eyes) Loco./Crazy. What happened to “Out and Proud” Brett?
I saw Brett Chuckerman the other day on HSN2 as I was channel surfing. I noticed him because my gaydar went off. In the ad I saw on the network for him, he looked like he and his female programme co-host were trying to be a breeder couple. Another gay guy with a female, I wonder? Heteronormative.
He looked familiar to me, but I couldn’t place him. Researching him I see he had done quite a bit of gay porn which — from reading some of HSN’s forum — the female viewers got riled up about when he was hired by HSN years ago. They said Brett hadn’t been properly “vetted” by HSN to have such a “checkered past.” (roll eyes) Doing sex videos is considered a “checkered past?” Conservative prudish (anti-gay?) females. Then on the show he was hosting later on, I saw a large wedding ring on his left hand “breeder” finger and thought wtf? Another gay guy married to a female here in the Century of Insanity and having gone back in the closet to “Assimilate with the breeders?” (Related: Why gay guys should wear their wedding rings on their right hand). I thought to myself: Oh here we go again with yet another gay guy who desperately wants to be a clone of the straights. Sigh. Another heteronormative gay guy? Seems so. Running from the word gay? Uh huh. People like him make me turn the channel because I see someone who is not fully comfortable with himself as a gay guy and has issues. Sad.
Researching him I found this:
Brett Chuckerman attended Highland Park High School… I was in the theater department with him. Never saw him engage in any explicitly gay activity, but he was overtly effeminate. He seems to be wearing a “mustache” now because he so badly wants mainstream acceptance, but back in the day it seemed pretty obvious that he was certainly homosexual.
I wasn’t at all surprised to find that he was acting in “gay” movies a handful of years later. I WAS however surprised to hear that he claims not to be gay… lol. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Yes, he is. He and his partner Todd W Anthony have been together a while, and they have a son. They live in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Then I found this bit of information where he and his boyfriend bought property in St Petersburg. But please don’t think they’re gay, for heaven’s sake! They wouldn’t stand for that!

Closet cases are fucking annoying to me.
Perhaps Brett would say:
I’m married to my boyfriend and we have a son (translation: I’m married with children and we want to be traditionally heteronormative). I’m not gay. lol. (roll eyes) Please don’t call me that dreaded word “gay.”
I see someone who has some problems with his sexuality. Considering this, it’s odd he started out in gay porn. Sounds like the problems may have cropped up since then. Some people do flip out the moment they become a parent. Parenting changes some people into conservatives prudes overnight. They conveniently forget their own past. I’ve seen that happen. The moment they become a parent, they start whining about the same behaviour they engaged in themselves earlier in their lives when they called themselves “a liberal” or “a progressive” most likely.
Here in the Century of Insanity where “Out and Proud” is now a thing of the past, I guess two gay guys married to each other are now considered a “straight” couple, eh? Isn’t “Gay Assimilation” wonderful? (Related: Gay Assimilation Has Backfired). It’s given some gay guys with their gay shame an excuse to go back in the fucking closet by running from the word gay and living the life of a traditional breeder couple with children. As I’ve asked many times: This is what The Gay and Lesbian Rights Movement fought for for decades, is it? Makes The Movement feel like it was a complete waste of time frankly. (Related: It already feels like we’re back where we started (circa 1970s)).
You know, some gay guys are quite good-looking on the outside but it’s their insides (their personality) that’s quite fucked up and needs work so that it matches their model-polished veneer exterior. I dated a few guys like that over the years, and they were some of the most fucked-up-in-the-head people from a personality standpoint that I’d ever met. A friend of mine met one of these guys when he was with me for a short time. My friend later told me, “He’s good looking.” I said: ‘Well yeah, on the outside. It’s all cosmetic. But we won’t talk about the inside,’ and I knew things would not work out between us because of that. These guys spend all this time on their façade instead of working to make themselves a better, and more well-adjusted person comfortable with themselves and the sexuality they were born with.
To those gay guys who have a boyfriend/partner and a son and say they’re not gay? Someone needs to see a credible psychotherapist ASAP. Of course they won’t do that because they’re quite comfortable with being in the closet and living a lie and in some cases damaging the lives of other people.
As for Brett’s past, he seems to have been comfortable with his gay sexuality in gay porn series. But as he aged and found a boyfriend and got “the house” and “the kid” he seems to now be running from the word gay. Sad really. Chau.—el barrio rosa
