A questionable document of former President Barack Obama has been doing rounds on social media, where he reportedly confessed about his “androgynous” mind to his ex-girlfriend, Alex McNear. In the letter, he stated how he “imagines” making love to men. The letter dates back to November 1982, when Obama was just 21.
“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. You see, I make love to men daily, but in the imagination. My mind is androgynous to a great extent, and I hope to make it more so until I can think in terms of people, not women as opposed to men.”
Barack Obama also stated that, in reality, he knows he “has been made a man” and chooses to accept “the contingency.” The news of the letter was broken shortly after Obama’s biographer and writer, David Garrow, was interviewed.
The letter, which has been redacted, was obtained by The Post, as Emory University currently owns it. The university does not allow the letter to be photographed. However, The Post claimed that Garrow managed to get a transcribed version of the document.
Alex McNear and Barack Obama dated when the two were in Occidental College. She is the daughter of Suzanne McNear, the editor of Playboy Magazine in the 1960s. The woman now resides in Sag Harbor, Long Island.
