kiss and tell : Gay & Black Glossary
- kiss and tell
Based on centuries of absolute secrecy, in the gay world, it is considered
unforgivable to kiss and tell. Originally, such loose lips could easily get somebody
killed or ostracised. This may be why gay people were horrified at the women who
betrayed president Clinton either by reporting details of sexual liasons or by making
up stories of sexual encounters. Gays too were horrified at the way president Clinton
was forced to discuss under oath details of his consensual sex life. Those are
nobody’s business, much less state’s. In particular, Linda Tripp’s
treachery was utterly unforgivable, betraying both her friend Monica Lewinsky and
President Clinton purely for financial reward. May the face lift she was paid as part
of her reward go weird like Michael Jackson’s.
The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation.
