Obama dated Alex McNear during his time at Occidental College in Los Angeles, and the two reportedly reconnected not long after they broke up in 1981. A year later, in November of 1982, Obama wrote McNear a letter that is now owned by Emory University.
“In regard to homosexuality, I must say that I believe this is an attempt to remove oneself from the present, a refusal perhaps to perpetuate the endless farce of earthly life,” Obama reportedly wrote, according to a copy of the transcript shared with the New York Post. “You see, I make love to men daily, but in the imagination.”
“I hope to make it more so until I can think in terms of people, not women as opposed to men. But, in returning to the body, I see that I have been made a man, and physically in life, I choose to accept that contingency,” he wrote.
But the general public already has loud opinions, with conservatives and blue checks screaming about Obama being “fake & gay,” while another theory suggests, “barack obama being a fake bisexual to attract artsy girls in college is much more believable than him being secretly actually gay.”
