Homosexual impulses[edit]

In his autobiography, Palimpsest, Gore Vidal wrote about Bobby Kennedy's "homosexual impulses" alluded to by Rudolph Nureyev. Nureyev explained that he and Kennedy slept (separately) with the the same American soldier. Any disagreement about me putting a short reference about this in the article - and any thoughts about where it would best fit? Thanks. Contaldo80 (talk) 11:09, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

You will need a very good and reliable secondary source. Nurayev's info is second hand gossip & Vidal is third hand gossip of the sort famous men get hit with. Rjensen (talk) 11:43, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
I suspect you're right. Thanks. Let's leave it out for now. Contaldo80 (talk) 13:36, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Vidal was a bitter enemy of Bobby Kennedy (he had Vidal escorted out of the White House after one nasty encounter). Rjensen (talk) 14:03, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
It should be left out; it was just gossip without any RS source. Kierzek (talk) 14:26, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

correct the dates, please[edit]

Robert cannot have gone to school in Riversdale if the Kennedys left in 1929 He was only 4! Same for Bronxville. In 1938, he was 13, not 12 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.94.214.29 (talk) 00:54, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

There doesn't have to be; it's not like she was a crucial aspect of his life. Snuggums (talk / edits) 12:41, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
