    Good show. The controversy around Lincoln’s sexuality evolves in the main out of evidence drawn from letters and stories about him sleeping in the same bed with other men while riding around the Illinois back country in his days as a lawyer on the circuit court rotation. In a time where most everyone gets their own bed as a matter of course, it’s difficult to understand that sharing your bed with people, same sex or no, was once a matter of course. I don’t know if Kushner’s got a source in the record for it, but even if he did it while President it would not have been odd. The epistolary evidence comes mainly in the form of highly emotional and effusive language, which seems odd to us because male friendship takes a very different form these days from what it could be in the past. Men expressing how much they miss each other, and deeply require each other’s company, is about as far from conceivable to us as can be. If Lincoln was gay, or bisexual, we don’t have any evidence for it which is actually out of character with how a straight man would behave in his own time, so most people who study the question since it was first brought up a few decades ago tend to assume he was what he appeared to be.
