Is Kaitlyn Hunt Actually Gay?


There are a few ways to write about Kaitlyn Hunt and her #FreeKate zombies. One possibility I considered was showing the sheer excitement that those supporters seem to have about the celebrities who retweeted the Hunt family’s lies about their daughter’s alleged sexual assault of a minor.

But this is much more compelling. In the Free Kate Facebook group, zombie central, are docs supposedly expressing the feelings of Kaitlyn’s parents.

This one, “Letter from, Mom reaching out for help”, was posted or edited on May 20, on behalf of Kaityln’s mother, Kelley Smith-Hunt [emphasis mine].

They were both students in the same high school….
This was unusual for Kate, she has always dated boys, but being the kind of mother I am, I didn’t want to make it a big deal. I talked to her about it, and figured it was just a social thing, times have changed and a lot of kids are experimenting, so I didn’t make much of it.

Later, the letter continues:

The girls would hang out together at after school activities, I was there, I saw the other girls [sic] father there several times, he saw them together as well, so I assumed her family was aware of it and didn’t have any issues either.

There’s also a letter in the group docs posted Wednesday on behalf of Steven Hunt, Kaitlyn’s father, entitled “Letter from dad – reaching out for help”:

After the relationship [between Kaitlyn and the minor] started, the basketball coach approached her and said “Kaitlyn, can I talk to you? I heard you have something going on with ___________ on our team, and I can’t have that kind of drama on my team, I don’t allow it and I wouldn’t ever. So, I’m sorry, but playing on our team won’t work out for you.”

via Red Treehouse:

The Hunt family wants us to believe that everyone, including the 14 year old’s family, was absolutely fine with the relationship between the two girls. Kelley Hunt said in a statement that she “assumed” the 14 year old’s parents knew.

Read the whole thing.

Would your reaction to this revelation– that your 14 year old was hanging out after school with an 18 year old classmate and teammate– automatically be to assume that they were in a relationship? Of course not. You have to question why Hunt’s parents would say the things that they are. Luckily, some people are.

Although written on a different topic, this applies here, too:

UPDATE: Hunt’s father wrote the letter in the Facebook group doc. The entire thing has been printed here.

UPDATE: Hunt’s mother’s letter via The Brevard Times.

UPDATE: In the mother’s own words, she doesn’t think that Kaitlyn’s a lesbian:

I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality — with mutual consent. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares? She is still their daughter.

Many thanks for the linkage at The American Spectator & The Other McCain!

  1. “I talked to her about it, and figured it was just a social thing, times have changed and a lot of kids are experimenting, so I didn’t make much of it.”

    OK, so she also experimented with felonies and may soon do some experimenting with incarceration. Why are you making such a big deal of that? Lots of kids are doing it.

  3. If it’s true that Kaitlyn Hunt isn’t gay, then why did she commit this deviancy on a 14yo girl? Could it have been another person, a boyfriend possibly, that put her up to it?

    • The quotes from the mother, both about Kate always having boyfriends before this, and the one about her not considering the girls gay, really speak for themselves. The picture of the parental atmosphere that Kaitlyn has been exposed to has been drawn with care by Stacy McCain at his blog: she’s been told throughout her whole life that she can have anything that she wants, that she is special. I doubt that anyone put her up to this. Remember– rape isn’t about sex, it’s about power.

  7. When my kids were in high school there was a situation where a boy ran away from home “to be with another boy” after his parents told the other boy to go away.

    Does this running away thing happen a lot?

  8. As R.J. Reidhead has speculated in her numerous posts about this, the chances are pretty good that little Katy might have been abused herself. She made a very telling statement…Most kids who are molested don’t grow up to be molesters themselves, but molesters are people who have been m olested.

  9. Which makes the actions of the parents even more outrageous. Kate isn’t even gay – she’s “experimenting” – and they have the audacity to use a civil rights movements that is about fighting for people who are REALLY suffering because they REALLY ARE GAY and not just “oops! We’re just a cute old bi-curious 18 year old LOLZ.” The LGBT community should be outraged at the Hunts’ selfish and shameless grab at taking advantage of real pain and real suffering for their own personal advantage.

    • Some gay people are outraged, and rightly so. I think it’s similar to what’s now happening in the George Zimmerman case. People with political motives are taking something and twisting it in order to benefit themselves. It’s sickening to watch.
