The sexuality of Abraham Lincoln is a topic of dispute. His relations with women were either problematic or distant, while those with a number of men were extremely warm. It has been argued that he may have been bisexual, or fundamentally homosexual. The comment of Lincoln's stepmother, Sarah Bush Lincoln, that Lincoln "never took much interest in the girls" was repeated in various forms by many others, while other comments by his contemporaries suggest a strong but controlled passion for women.
Sexuality of Abraham Lincoln
Was Abraham Lincoln bisexual or gay?
Just because I reprint an article on JonahWorld! Especially in this case. The fact that men commonly slept with one another in bed in the 19 th century and for hundreds of years before, or that Lincoln was married, seems not to matter to this writer. What stuff! Abe and the Boys.
Oh no, there's been an error
Over 16, books have been written about Abraham Lincoln, our greatest president. Many of these books either allude to or specifically report on Lincoln's ambiguous relationships with men. Lincoln lived with and shared a bed with Joshua Speed for four years, and they remained friends years after they no longer lived together.
But I have documented undisputed facts that have been ignored or covered up by most historians for over years. I think a reasonable examination of those facts reveals that not only was Honest Abe a gay man, he was comfortable with his sexuality and it had a big impact on how he conducted his life, and the civil war. Rubin and Charles has married two girls but Billy has married a boy.
