It must have been the first conference in the history of Abraham Lincoln scholarship to call the Great Emancipator "a terrifically sexual guy." Addressing the nation's top Lincoln scholars on Sunday, two historians defended a new book that claims Lincoln was gay and called for more research into his sexuality.

We're spending millions on researching space and vaccines and shit, and we can't free up a few bucks to fund studies on whether Lincoln was gay? That's not the America I love.
