Of course they do and they use the court system illegally too. They can’t win without cheating. It’s called being dirty little cowards and that is what they are.
Fear and intimidation work, every time.
Part of the con is based on the same principle that hustlers everywhere use: you can’t cheat an honest man.
Many males of the species have encounters with the same sex as part of their maturation process. These things largely fade from consciousness, and when questioned as an adult, most males would deny any such thing happened.
So when accusations are brought up, that a man is of homosexual tendencies, there is immediate denial, followed by a sense of shame and vulnerability, as these past escapades are re-ignited and become exaggerated. At this point, even the straightest of arrows begins to doubt his previously unchallenged masculinity, and falls victim to this emotional blackmail. Once compromised, it is easy to then make further and further demands, to the degree that almost everything the victim once believed is called into question, and this is reflected in the way in which many issues are addressed.
A LOT of our politicians and public figures have gone through such a series of compromise and intimidation, making them much less of a human being than they once were.
