+1 Kevin Spacey comes out as a gay (alcoholic?) man.
- 1,000,000 for him blaming shitty pedophilic actions on aforementioned most true life.
Kevin is known for being fiercely protective of his private life. And also for playing a real prick on TV.
Life imitating art? What say ye?
After actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of making sexual advances toward him at AGE 14, Spacey replied in the way so many entitled dudes do...

...with a half-hearted apology paired with a pitiful excuse for being a pedophile.
Hi, um, Kevin, “I am gay” is not another way to say “I prey on little boys.”
Also, I assure you, other gay people do not appreciate this.
This is not totally unlike being mentally ill. As Ravishly’s own Jenni Berrett likes to say, “Mental illness is not your fault, but it is absolutely your responsibility.”

I have done some epically shitty things while manic. But those epically shitty behaviors are mine to own. They may be part of my disease process, but that doesn’t mean I can use that bullshit excuse to dismiss the gravity of those actions.
No, Kevin, you do not get a pass because you were drunk or gay or having a bad day or whatever other pitiful excuse you’d like to offer for being a predator.
Call it what it is: pedophilia. Call yourself what you are: a creep.
