Reads Tom in British!But I imagine that were the topic to come up now, in a contemporary interview situation, for example, even someone of his renown would have the sense of self-preservation to disavow his past proclivities, regardless of his true feelings on the matter.
That's the crux of the irritation with Tommy Teen-Toucher, it's not that he thinks it's fine (once you're that far gone, there is no redemption and your soul, if it exists, is forfeit).
It's that he hasn't even the cognition to realise that espousing views of that kidney are not considered compatible with rational society. A basic animal level of self-preservation would dictate that one camouflages or absents oneself in situations where prevailing isn't an option and you lack the brute force to overcome your opposition. Instead, Tom flounces in, casually mentions dog-mongling and his totally hot threesome with a teenager and has the temerity to be affronted when we round on him and give him chapter and verse on why he's fit only to be staked out for vultures in the deep desert.
That level of sheer stupidity paired with overbearing misplaced arrogance is what makes his personality as malodorous as his dirty shithole of an apartment looks to be.
