4Gay Sex Is Totally Normal, Says Straight Daniel Radcliffe

As we all know by now, Daniel Radcliffe plays Alan Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, and the movie features a “beautiful and tender” (DRad’s words) gay sex scene between Ginsberg and Dane DeHaan‘s character Lucien Carr. Big deal, right? Who cares? Well, Danny does – he can’t believe that people are all up in arms about it. After all, he can fuck a horse on stage with impunity (we all remember Equus), so why can’t he screw another man in a movie?

From The Sun (via DS):

“There’s nothing graphic about it. I mean, you see a bit of bum.”

“I f**ked a horse on stage when I was 17 but gay sex is more of a big deal It is just the fact that it’s sex, and it’s sex with a man, I guess. It’s amazing how shockable the world still is.”

In a sense, I’m totally with him. We don’t bat an eye at graphic hetero sex in movies, but if it’s between two men or two women, there’s a massive uproar. I mean, look at La Via d’Adele at Cannes this past year, for instance. It won the Palme d’Or and still people walked out of screenings because of the “graphic” 10-minute long sex scene which was anything but and totally vital to the story, so it’s not just about two men. Gay stuff is just still sensational, for whatever reason.

At the same time, methinks Dan is protesting a bit too much. I know it’s on topic because of the subject matter of this film, but for someone who’s not gay, he sure spends 90% of his time talking about gay shit. I don’t care either way, obviously – I mean, look at me – but I do wish he’d either shut up about it or come out already. Then again, maybe he’s just a really good ally. Anything could happen!

    So if a man is an advocate for gay rights and he uses his celebrity as a platform to continue to try and reach the public with his message of equality, he’s possibly gay because he’s “protesting a bit too much”? If someone is an animal rights supporter and continually talks about how animal abuse is horrible, does that mean they’re secretly a panda bear?
