So i was reading the classic tangency, and saw the whole mess about Anne McCaffrey suggesting that all it took make someone gay was one incident of anal penetration. And was a little mystified, but willing to accept her being batshit crazy. And then i found an actual image of her...and realized...dear god, this woman feeds upon the souls of children. <a href="http://s271.photobucket.com/albums/jj134/AndreTheroux/?action=view&current=Anne_McCaffrey_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj134/AndreTheroux/Anne_McCaffrey_1.jpg" border="0" alt="she looks evil!"></a>
I think it's the look in her eyes...it may just be that she was photographed poorly, and has hit that point at age 82 where you either look like a sweet elderly person, or evil incarnate, and happened to roll evil incarnate. But still...an image that will haunt me.

She really said that? I'm very disappointed. :(

I wouldn't let your heart get too broken up yet. If this were true, where is the transcript? Why isn't it listed in Wikipedia? (They don't even discuss it on the talk page.) Where are the specifics that would allow external corroboration of the truth?

Google has a list of several people asking about the existence of this statement and at best they have 2nd hand information. This second hand information is a snippet from the supposed interview from the "late 90's" and was reposted to a forum just this year.

As per par, a tempest in a teapot...

What is it about growing old that suddenly makes one think, "Hey, you know what would make this jacket really work? Giant bright and colorful flowers and other assorted shapes!"

You actually consider Wikipedia definitive? Such a pity.

Anyway, there's no need to chastize McCaffery over the alleged tentpeg statement; there's plenty off reasons to hate her just from her Dragon books. Like Menolly- such the perfect example of an insipid Mary Sue; or the way hey abruptly resolved the Red Star problem in the most ridiculous of ways. I mean, what a waste of printed material!

I'm not trying to agree with her, but given how rape can really screw a person's psyche over, I wouldn't be surprised if a possible reaction to homosexual rape is to start experiencing homoerotic urges.
