'Stone Cold' Steve Austin Is Enthusiastically In Support Of Gay Marriage: AUDIO

Stonecold

Professional wrestling isn't exactly known for being especially gay friendly - which is a bit ironic for a form of entertainment that involves two or more oiled up muscle men in spandex playing a game of "Who's on top" - and wrestlers often regard homosexuals as a punchline at best and with violent hostility at worst. One of the biggest names in pro wrestling, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, not only doesn't share the homophobic tendencies of some of his compatriots but actually supports gay marriage. Said Stone Cold on his podcast from last year (which is just now making the internet rounds):

I don't give a s--t if two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is, I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the goddamn world, that wants to be married, and if it's same-sex, more power to 'em.

He also calls out religious hypocrisy and questions the "evil" of gay marriage.

OK, so two cats can't get married if they want to get married, but then a guy can go murder 14 people, molest five kids, then go to f--king prison, and accept God and He's going to let him into heaven? After the fact that he did all that s--t? See that's all horses--t to me, that don't jive with me.

Listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. And that's the bottom line, cause Stone Cold says so

  2. I think this article would have been better without the stereotypical commentary from Christian Walters about how "gay" men in Spandex supposedly are. We get enough of this crap from straights.

  4. I think this article would have been better with a different picture attached to it. I don't think the message on the shirt really helps.

  5. "....which is a bit ironic for a form of entertainment that involves two or more oiled up muscle men in spandex playing a game of 'Who's on top'..."

    What a bitchy, snarky, and utterly unproffesional way to point out an "irony". Because of course, men who oil up, wear spandex, and try to wrestle each other to the ground are sooooo gay. Talk about trading in stereotypes. Those things have as much to do woth being gay as with being Chinese. Shame on you for stooping so low.

  9. I think it's even bigger that he calls out the religious right and calls some of their core tenets horses--t.

  11. As a high school & college "real" wrestling team member, I can refute the notion that straight wrestlers regularly spout homophobic remarks to prove their own heterosexuality.

    Wrestlers are, perhaps, more secure in their own sexuality than most other groups of sportsmen. There is no denying the completion requires full body contact (even in the most intimate areas). If a wrestler worried about misinterpretation of standard moves in a typical match, they wouldn't participate in the sport to begin with.

    When these "fake" wrestlers make such remarks, I suspect their main motivate is to pander to their ignorant redneck audiences. I'm glad one of them took the opposite approach. Real men don't harbor "homosexual panic" when they know their true self.
