Should Rock Hudson be criticized for marrying in order to conceal the fact that he was gay?

  • Yes, Rock Hudson should be critized for marrying in order to coneal that he was gay.

    Yes, Rock Hudson should be criticized for marrying in order to conceal that he was gay. The first major reason is because the is unfair to his wife. That is a selfish move and while trying to make himself feel better in society, he is draging another person through the dirt. The second major reason is fight for what you beleive in and be yourself. Life is hard at times, but it is much harder when you have to fake living.

  • Yes, there is room for criticism.

    There should be some criticism, but not the kind where he is being scolded for it. But, more from a psychological standpoint and showing how and why it was wrong that he did this, and how it could have effected so many other people. It's good to be a strong example to people.

  • People do what makes them happy.

    No, Rock Hudson should not be criticized for marrying in order to conceal the fact that he was gay, because he thought it was what he had to do. People tend to make decisions that they think will make them happy. If Hudson thought that concealing the fact that he was gay would make him happy, there was nothing wrong with him trying it.

  • Rock Hudson's decision was dictated by the times he lived in

    No, I do not believe that Rock Hudson should have been criticized for marrying to conceal the fact that he was gay. You would have to put it in the context of the time period he was living in. One could not have realistically lived a life as an out, proud gay man back then the way one could today. So if Rock Hudson married, the times dictated that he did so.

  • No, Rock Hudson should not be criticized.

    Rock Hudson should not be criticized. He had no choice but to get married. In the 50's and 60's being gay was totally unacceptable. People who were gay did not have the luxury of "coming out". If you were gay, you hid it and denied it. This often included getting married for the sake of appearances. Letting the public know he was gay would probably have been the end of his career.
