Beware Of Closet Case Danger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                              As adults, we have to teach children about Stranger Danger.  But both children, and adults, should be aware of Closest Case danger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                               There is no more dangerous person alive than a Closet Case Gay!  As an example here, we have Glenn Drew, the perp of the "Cold Case" episode, " The Brush Man."

                                Roy W. Dunn was the title character.  He gets to know the people on his route very well, some maybe a little too well.  He becomes concerned about the Drew family, sensing, with his salesman instinct, that something is not right, there.  It turns out Glenn physically abuses both his wife, Diane, and son, Kevin, because, in this pre-Stonewall age, he cannot be out and proud.  Or, rather, he chooses to conform to societal norms, living a hypocritical life style, but taking it out on everyone around him.  And when son Kevin spots Daddy in the park with another man...and then tells Roy....well, there goes Roy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                 Fortunately, there are no statues of limitation to murder, so, decades later, Glenn gets his!  Monte Markham plays the older Glenn, and he still conveys that self-righteous, conforming hypocrisy.

                                   But it is William Ragsdale's performance as Glenn, in 1967, that paints the real picture.

                                   "The Brush Man" is not quite one of the great "Cold Case" episodes, but pretty darn close!!!!!!!!!!!!  Since we are talking about Closet Case Danger, the first question is how does one spot one of these types????????????

                                     Darlings, it is all about exaggeration.  Now, as campy as "Boys Beware!" was, the exaggerated posturings of the perps in that film should have clued the victims in to their homosexuality.  But that was the point; the victims are so naïve, they do not see through the exaggeration; a kid today, forget it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                       Closet Cases do the reverse.  Instead of flaming up, they try and present such a portrait of being straight that it is over play.  Look at Glenn Drew.  Pouchy and paunchy when young; no exercise, no athleticism.  Always looking over his shoulder.  Always having a deer-in- the headlights look in the eyes.  Always criticizing those around him, who may have an interest in non-conformist things, like literature, or the arts.

                                          As much as I hated Glenn, I had to hand it to William Ragsdale for his brilliant and accurate portrayal of a man caught in this position.  Of course, if Glenn had had the guts, as many gay men did, he would not have married.  And--I cannot emphasize this enough--if he was able to marry and consummate, then he should have stayed where he was.  He made his bed, he made his conformist choice, now live with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                           This is why I despise Closet Cases.  Like straight adulterers, they think they can have their cake and eat it, too.  But because men who cheat with women is still more a society norm, the gay alternative is still looked, in some circles, even today, as one to be ashamed about.  Yes, darlings, there are still Glenn Drews out there!  Get rid of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                             Girls, if what I have described sounds like anyone you know, or your friends might know, steer clear.  Closet Cases take down everyone in their path.

                                              These bastards should be made to dance en pointe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
