Pete Wentz Admits He's Made Out With Guys

Pete Wentz, the Fall Out Boy bassist who wed Ashlee Simpson in May, tells 'Out' magazine in its latest issue that he's made out with "the dudes."

Wentz says he first made out a guy was when he was 16 or 17, probably on a dare at a party: "Like, 'You make out with this dude and we’ll make out.'" But with his later 'experiments', at 18 or 19, it was more like, "I'm going to try this thing."

The 29-year-old says his last same-sex make out was "a long time ago... probably when I was 22."

Trying to explain his experimenting ways Wentz says: "There was a slight sense of sexual rebellion in that. And I probably even made it a bigger deal than it was."

"Our culture bombards us with this idea that you're not that, and if you are that, there's something wrong with you, and then we're going to call you that, and then it's an insult."

"Homophobia is the last acceptable hatred," says Wentz. "Whenever you say that homophobia is stupid, you just get called gay. There is a sense of self-empowerment or recapturing who you are by people calling you 'fag', and being like, 'Yeah, I am a fag.' Even though you're not. What does somebody respond?"

"The actual acceptance of gay marriage is inevitable," Wentz declares. "It’s just like how the next generation of kids are going to all have tattoos."
