Mark Oaten, Brokeback Mountain, Donald Rumsfeld, Hitler, Napoleon, Martin Luther, Abraham Lincoln...

Imagine if the Kaiser had been open about his sexuality.

Would we have avoided World War One?

Nona: Kaiser Wilhelm II, Prince Eulenberg and Friedrich Krupp

Imagine if Hitler had been open about his sexuality.

Would we have avoided World War Two?

Hitler was bisexual?

And would the UK Liberal Democrats be ahead in the polls if Mark Oaten was more open about his sexuality?

The talented Marina Hyde, in The Guardian, 9 May 2006, wrote about Mark Oaten:


The Lib Dem MP ... revealed that as he drove to a safe house on the morning that the story of his liaison with a male prostitute broke, he phoned his psychiatrist, a man he had been seeing "for several years".

"But, as I now realised," wrote Mark, "we had never really worked out why a 40-year-old married man with two children goes to a male prostitute. It certainly made no sense on that drive from my home."

Yes, it is most baffling. What on earth could be behind his behaviour? A small fluctuation in the Japanese futures markets, perhaps, precipitating some sort of butterfly effect? A shift of tectonic plates, imperceptible to Britons, but causing a seismograph needle to jump somewhere in the South Pacific? Or even - but no, it's too stratospherically outlandish - the possibility that Mark likes sex with men?


According to Private Eye, UK Defence Secretary John Reid, on a recent visit to the US, said he and Donald Rumsfeld were going to see 'Brokeback Mountain' together.
