Would it be fair to 'OUT' Matt Drudge?

Edited on Wed Sep-27-06 10:40 AM by romantico
I have some friends who vacation every winter in Miami and they say that everyone in Miami know about Matt Drudge.Apparently he goes to all the gay clubs and bars and doesn't really seem to hide his homosexuality. Despite what I have thought over the years these people say that they hear he really is a pretty nice guy. They also said it would not be very difficult to 'out' him either. All you'd have to is take a picture of him in one of these clubs or bars.

Now, maybe I'm wrong but hasn't Drudge in the past said some anti gay comments? I'm not talking about who he associates with or even the party he belongs to and their stand on homosexuality. I'm talking about things he has said about homosexuals that are not very flattering.

I know this is a touchy subject and in my own opinion feel no matter what, outing someone is just mean. However, would it be appropiate/fair to do so? What would be gained? I'm just asking. By the way, this is all gossip and should be atken as that. However, if he really is a nice, sweet guy like they say why would he cater to those who are against him and his lifestyle?
