I stay as far away from politics as possible -- at the time I had never heard of either of them. I would hear a lot later, of course, when George W. became a viciously homophobic President, and Jeb the viciously homophobic governor of Florida.
But still, I assumed from The Simpsons that George Herbert Walker Bush (1926-) had only two children.
Turns out he had six.
Yesterday I went through his entire family tree, looking for someone who was gay-friendly. And for beefcake photos, of course.
Daughter: Jenna Bush Hager (1981-), a journalist. Married to Henry Chase Hager.
Daughter: Barbara Pierce Bush (1981-), a Yale graduate, fundraiser, and activist. Gay-friendly! Appears in a pro-marriage equality PSA released by the Human Rights Campaign. She was dating graffiti artist Miky Fabrega (top photo), who painted in his underwear, but recently she's been linked to Franck Raharinosy
2. Robin Bush: died in childhood.
Son: George P. Bush (1976), Texas land commissioner who apparently is into some very shady stuff. He's strongly opposed to gay rights.
Son: Jeb Bush Jr (1983), left, budding politician. He's had a few run-ins with the police. Strongly opposed to...well, you get the idea. At least he looks nothing like his father.
4. Dorothy Bush Koch (1959-): got her degree in sociology from Boston College, is a fund-raiser and philanthropist. Her first husband, Robert Koch, was a wine distributor...and a Democrat! Maybe she's gay-friendly.
Son: Sam LeBlond (1984-): a beer distributor (left; I don't know who the boyfriend is)
Son: Robert Koch (1993)
Son: Pierce Bush (1986-): an executive officer at Big Brothers. That's him jumping into the lake. Big Brothers accepts gay volunteers.
6. Marvin Bush (1956-): has a degree in English from the University of Virginia. An insurance agent. No word on his attitude toward gay people.
Son: Charles Walker Bush (1989-)
But the only Bush I could find chest shots of. Here he poses with Chippendale dancers.
