Hm. So he was “found dead” or “family was at his side” when he died? Seems like it can’t be both.

When I was in jr high school I had a Sassoon haircut when they first came out. It was very avant garde. Probably the only time in my life I was “fashion forward” - very few other girls had them. And I did get a lot of attention.

It’s more than reasonable to assume that ANY guy who is a hair stylist, you might say, “bats for the other team”.

But this guy fought in the war for Israel’s independence (and survival) - sorry but he gets high marks in my book, and he’s likely not a queer.

Where did I say he was gay? I hinted that his “undisclosed illness” was AIDS. AIDS is not restricted to the gay community.

The logic by which I was indicted had holes in it. I merely pointed them out.

You may also want to consider that a man could be capable of all the heroic feats you attribute to the late Mr. Sassoon and still be queer enough to change a 12-dollar bill. His heroism is no absolute defense against a charge of homosexuality. Or AIDS, for that matter.
