Sex, Drugs, and Arnold
I just got passed this URL.....
It talks about an interview that Arnold did in the 70's where he talked about sex and doing drugs.
Some choice quotes:
"Yes, grass and hash--no hard drugs. But the point is that I do what I feel like doing. I'm not on a health kick."
In the Q&A with Manso, today's gubernatorial wannabe spoke about his sex life, drug usage, and belief that men "shouldn't feel like fags just because they want to have nice-looking bodies."
First thing I have to say is... does anyone know of the legitimacy of this article (they have a link to what appears to be a scanned article out of this magazine but that doesn't prove anything).
With that out of the way... he really comes off like a jerk in the article, but probably not any more jerky than many other people would have if they were talking about the same things at that time. He uses a lot of "foul" language but I could care less. Words are just words and the only thing that makes them "foul" is some weird social repression that doesn't have a clear beginning. Cock is the same as penis, but most people find the word cock to be offensive... I don't but you can make your own choice.
He also uses "offensive" words like fag. Were they offensive at the time? Maybe, I'm not sure, I was only 1 year old. Are they offensive now? Most likely... I think most straight people are afraid of the word and some homosexual people also hate the word. However, I know plenty of gay people who use it, in the "it has no power if we take it away from them" sort of way.
In the article, he talks about how just because a guy likes to spend a lot of time making his body look good and hanging around with other men doing it doesn't mean he is gay. Maybe he felt comfortable using the word because other guys in the gym were gay and they used it. Maybe he was a jerk and hated gay people... I don't know. The interview was done 26 years ago, who really knows anymore.
I don't think the article has made me think differently about Arnold as a politician. He has sex and did drugs.... sounds like a perfect candidate for the White House.
What do you guys think about it?
