Is it the Closet?

Question: Is it fair to say that Foley didn't fall into this problem with young pages because he was gay but because he was in the closet?

Think about it--being in the closet means he had to suppress natural sexual attractions, thus leading him to subconciously find an outlet for these attractions, which sadly was underage boys.

I don't really think this is what happened. But, if we are going to blame gays for this, shouldn't we be more realistic and blame anti-gay folks that encourage gays to stay in the closet? After all, Foley was not an out, healthy gay man. How we're now blaming the out gay community for this, which Foley was not a part of, is beyond me.
