Alexander Polinksy Alleges Scott Baio Exposed Himself On Set, Sexually
Harassed Him With Homophobic Slurs
By Elizabeth Wagmeister

Alexander Polinsky is claiming years of “sexual themed hazing” by
Scott Baio on the set of their ’80s sitcom “Charles In Charge” with
his accusations including Baio allegedly exposing himself and pulling
down Polinsky’s pants when he was a minor.

Polinsky, who was 11 years old at the time the alleged child abuse
began, says his harassment was homophobic in nature.

Huh? Shouldn't that be homosexual rather than homophobic?

Or was Baio allegedly accusing an 11 year old of being a homosexual?

The whole "--phobia" thing, as used by progs, bears no resemblance to
the actual meaning of words. It's a propaganda move.

They label any dislike or disagreement with regard to anything gay as
'homophobic', as if objecting to gay marriage, for example, means you
fear gay people. Same with Islam. Any criticism of any aspect of the
religion or its practices is automatically 'Islamophobic'.

It's nonsense, of course. Criticism or dislike of a thing does not
equate to fear of that thing. I can dislike broccoli, but that doesn't
mean I'm broccophobic.

I agree with you. But that wasn't the point I was making. How does the
word "homophobic" make any sense in the statement "Polinsky, who was 11
years old at the time the alleged child abuse began, says his
harrassment was homophobic in nature."?

If Baio was exposing himself and pulling down Polinski's pants, what
exactly was homophobic about that? It sounds a whole lot more like
homosexual activity given that homophobic activity would be along the
lines of someone saying "You're a dirty queer for doing such-and-such".

Considering it involves Gloria Allred's daughter lawyer and a vocal trump
supporter, it stinks of an attempted smear job to me.

Dems & the media want Trump to be more like Obama, but then he'd
have to audit liberals & wire tap reporters' phones.

I don't know... I might also be Chicagophobic.

(Even though I'm going to be there for several days at the end of June
for a live performance of the entire score to STAR WARS by the Chicago
Symphony while the film plays above them on a giant screen. I may be a
Chicagoist, but the Chicago Symphony is the finest orchestra in the
world and the opportunity to see them perform the STAR WARS score in its
entirety was not to be missed.)

Dear Mr. Polinsky,

If an adult pulls down a child's pants, that might make him a pervert,
but not a homophobe. If an adult exposes himself, that makes him an
exhibitionist and not a homophobe.

May I ask why, if something terrible happened to you on the set, you
never told the director, the producer, or your own parents? Why is the
lesson in bravery from these alleged events always, Wait 30 years, tell
a reporter or hold a press conference, and wait for people to say how
very very brave you are?
