There’s an interesting bit of information in a biography recently written about Barack Obama. When he was a college student he had a gay professor that he apparently become smitten with. In a letter to his then girlfriend, Barry confessed to feeling like he wanted to be gay.

Via Daily Caller:

In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn.

“Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry Obama,” Garrow wrote in the book. “Almost a quarter century later, asked about his understanding of gay issues, Obama enthusiastically said, ‘my favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew…He was a terrific guy” with whom Obama developed a ‘friendship beyond the classroom.’”

The biographer added, “Goldyn years later would remember that Obama ‘was not fearful of being associated with me’ in terms of ‘talking socially’ and ‘learning from me’ after as well as in class.”

“Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,” Garrow wrote. “But there is no doubting that Goldyn gave eighteen-year-old Barry a vastly more positive and uplifting image of gay identity and self-confidence than he had known in Honolulu.”

This would certainly explain why he acted like such a beta male while in office. It’s no surprise as there have been multiple rumors about our former Commander in Chief’s sexual orientation. It’s probably the reason why we never see Barack and Michele together anymore after he left office.
