Patrick Swayze Is Not, Was Not, and Never Will Be Gay; He Was Just Frustrated

I'm a Midwestern, older Christian woman (which makes me boring but rational) who has thought Patrick Swayze was God's gift to the rest of us lesser mortals, not a sexual deviate to be pilloried by the rest of us dumb asses. This marvelous creature was pummeled enough by three very strong women who dominated his life and therefore his life choices.

First, he was Catholic. The Mother Church will make sure you never have sex beyond the missionary position, and if you do you will forever feel guilty about it.(My first true love was Catholic.'Nuff said). Even Patrick's wife says he was a prude. To me that says Mama made sure he was a good little Catholic boy.
No wonder in his later married years he explored Buddhism, etc.,--anything to give him permission to open up his life.

His mother was a ball breaker. She choreographed dance and made all the children (4 I think) learn dance. Do you think 4 children in any family WANT to dance? Fortunately for us, Patrick was terrific at it, AS HE WAS IN ALL SPORTS, including captaining the football team, being great at gymnastics, track, and other sports. Dance was one of two sports he had college scholarships for. Which one do you think Mama would have wanted him to pursue?

His wife was unsupportive. Granted, he married her at her age 19, and she was Catholic, too. But she was so busy trying to follow Mama's lead as a choreographer that she didn't even bother to take Patrck's NAME of Swayze until he DIED after 36 years of marriage. I know that was the California "thing" in those days to retain your own name, but she was in the Texas Bible belt. And about that prudishnes in bed-- whose job is it to cure that? Any red-blooded non-Catholic woman knows the answer to that one. His wife wouldn't let him grow spiritually or sexually, so you could see it come out in his dance, while the rest of us girls (and some of the guys too!) chewed our knuckles.

This man was a national treasure. I just hope I get to see him in person in the next round.

Sweetheart-being a dancer or a jock has nothing to do with hetero or homo-that's stereotyping.You seem to be "aware" of how ppl behave -mostly. I to am a Midwesterner with "gaydar".The first time I saw/heard/ observed PS in a movie my radar went off,this radar has decades of experience with a success rate of 100%.He did not father any children to my knowledge, the Herero way. Sadly many gay men ,as you have heard and may even know, feel societal ,professional or religious pressure to marry ,especially in h-wood where a beard means having a job vs never acting legitimately.No one is judging PS and our love of him and his movies are stronger since his RIP. God bless PS and you also.thank you for this opportunity , Oo.

Dirty Dancing was set before the slaying of Jack Kennedy and more U.S. involvement in the Vietnam war, so it makes sense for street-wise dance instructor Johnny Castle to have a brother named Frank who would go on to fight as a marine against the NVA as well as the Viet Cong and re-emerge as a street-deadly vigilante known as the Punisher!
