Aaron Schock Not Sure Why He Doesn't Support Gay Marriage: 'Uh, Well...I Just Haven't' - VIDEO


The turquoise belt-burning Congressman from Illinois, Aaron Schock, was asked by reporters why he doesn't support marriage equality. Schock was speechless at first, before stuttering out a bunch of gobble-dy-gook.

  1. Oh calm down, guys. He's a conservative congressman from a conservative district, and these are the values he believes (or thinks he does). To me, his little impromptu answers made sense. He hasn't really thought all that much about this issue. The fact that he's stunningly handsome makes our gaydar go off, but I say let that crap rest until he himself says something. Not every hot guy is gay.

  2. Discuss among yourselves:

    Why is it that so many of us have contempt, rather than pity -- or at least some empathy, for closet cases?

    Not a charitable lot, are we?

  3. Jim -- be politically correct if you like, but this girl dropped a whole purse full of hairpins.

  4. He is F~L~A~M~I~N~G!

    He is so deep in the closet he has found the monsters I was scared of as a kid.

    And it looks like he is not coming out, someone needs to put on protective gear get in there with him and kick him out of the closet

  5. Hot? I don't find weird liars especially hot.

    I also don't find any need to be empathetic to people working against my interests. Why are you even on this site?

  6. @Jim First of all, no one here is commenting on whether or not his perceived attractiveness is the sole reason why there is speculation regarding his sexuality. It is THAT plus the facts that he is 31, has had no romantic ties to any females, spends an inordinate amount of time on his physique and making statements about the physiques of other men, seems obsessed with fashion and reacts irrationally to criticism about his past flamboyant ensembles. None of how he conducts himself screams heterosexual. His actions, mannerisms, facial expressions and vocal timber also tend to register in the gay spectrum as well. If he was less appealing aesthetically, he would still be setting off gaydar.

    And of course he has thought about this issue because as a member of Congress, he has to have a notion of his party's plank and since he can directly influence this issue, the press and the community hounds him. Not every hot guy is gay. But most hot, successful 31 year old men in the public eye who are heterosexual are occasionally seen with women, and not passing gay sex shops talking about Paul Ryan's hot body but frumpy sartorial sense.

  8. What did his eyebrows ever do to him that he should be in the process of plucking them out of existance?

  9. You don't put that kind of work into your body and not want it appreciated up close. Who provides that pleasure? There must be a way to video tape him when he's in the gym with Paul Ryan each morning at 5 AM.

  10. Put these two photos together and it sets off my gaydar.

  12. Blanche, please.

  13. Some of you queens need to relax and turn off the pc bull. I wrote "bottom" because it is funnier than saying gay, I referenced his "perceived" sexuality, that is all. It was not a slam against any sexual postion and if that is how one refers to yourself - so be it. I have zero respect for gay men (if he indeed is one) who vote against our rights and hurt us in the process.

  14. Oh Arron it's such a bad time to play closeted Representative. I can't see how you could pull it off.

  15. 1- Yeah blame it on God
    2- Now blame it on your parents
    3- At long last personal denial

  16. @AG: you're right. Above all else we need to make it easier for guys from these barnyard backrounds to come out. Despite the acceptance he'd get in a gay bar, it's may be too scary for him to go (as it was for me) and nobody seems to get that.

    It's not his closeting that I object to, it's his stance on policy. And he's a politician. That makes him fair game for policy objections from us. I'll attack his policy opinions as much as I like, but not his fear of coming out...yet.

    He's unwittingly doing damage to a new generation of gay youth by NOT having the balls to come out., But if he's found with another man (and I suspect he will), then WE need to offer the olive branch. He wont have one to offer, and his apologies will be unaccepted.

  17. Since when is faith a value?

  18. Mike - your initial "bottom" remark was hilarious. That's all it had to be. Any misinterpretation has nothing to do with you, or bottoms.

  19. Dearest Aaron,

    Honey, your dress is ON FIRE!

  21. Thanks UFFDA. bottoms up!

    Posted by: Mike | Feb 1, 2013 3:55:55 AM

  22. I think we need to understand he may have one position, but he can't get re-elected until his constituents have "evolved" on the matter. His hedging is because he knows he shouldn't be caught on YouTube saying anything that may bite him in the ass later in what he hopes is a decades long career.

  23. Maybe he hasn't supported gay marriage because he isn't in favor of it. Not everyone is...

  24. Of course UFFDA would agree with you Mike. Have you read his previous commentary that is laced with femmephobia, fem bashing? He and his other alias Rick, has this hang up over anyone who is remotely identifiably gay and probably hates bottoms too. Guys like them are usually the biggest power bottoms behind closed doors btw.

  25. There's no excuse for being against gay marriage, when you are- you deserve all the criticism in the world and then some!
