To the chagrin of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocates everywhere, the Penn State child abuse scandal has been cited in several arguments made against gay parenting and adoption by various right-wing pundits.
Previous efforts made to dissociate the two topics, however, went out the window earlier this week as Joseph Amendola, the attorney for Penn State’s retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, inadvertently dropped the telephone number of a gay sex hotline when addressing the media.
Amendola announced that anyone who believes that Sandusky — who has been charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse involving eight boys over a 15-year period — is a child molester should call “1-800-REALITY.” As the Deadspin team discovered, however, 1-800-REALITY is actually a gay sex line that advertises itself as “the hottest place for triple-X action.”
The hotline also proclaims: “Get ready for bulging, bursting pleasure with horny gay, bi, and bi-curious studs. Just 99 cents per minute.”
