NYT: Rep. Aaron Schock, Who 'Has Said That He is Not Gay' Has a Popular Shirtless Instagram Account


The New York Times profiles Aaron Schock, the Republican congressman who enjoys showing off his abs, and his "popular Instagram persona" in a piece that folks are noticing feels coded.

Writes Jeremy Peters in the NYT:

The photos of him shirtless have garnered the most attention. Never shy about peeling off his clothes, as he did for Men’s Health a few years back, Mr. Schock has posted shots of himself surfing in Hawaii and sliding down a sand dune on a wooden plank and splashing into the water.

“My congressman is like a thousand years old and never does stuff like this,” one admirer wrote.

“Ride it, baby,” a man from New York wrote. Another man commented, “Rawr!” Someone with an anonymous profile wrote, “URGH marry me you fiscally conservative stud you.” (Mr. Schock has said that he is not gay.)

The internet, of course, would say otherwise. And Schock gets touchy about that Instagram account when the gay rumors surface.

And, one person has noted, they have been BLOCKED by Schock from viewing Schock's Instagram account after their username appeared in a screenshot posted by the NYT for this article.

As we noted back in January, rumors that Congressman Schock is gay are not new, and the reason that they continue is purely because of his positions on issues such as marriage equality, and that being an out gay man would also make him a very public hypocrite.

Not only is Schock opposed to same-sex marriage, he supports a federal marriage amendment, opposed repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', opposes the repeal of DOMA and voted against adding sexual orientation to federal hate crimes statutes.

  2. How many straight anti-gay conservatives follow British gay twinks in speedos on instagram?

  4. Without clothes he's gay. In a gingham shirt, white pants and powder blue weave belt he's gayer. What's a stud muffin to do?

  6. I have a friend who works for a suit store in Chicago. Rep Schock buys his suits there and frequently comes in with his boyfriend. I've seen him there with my own eyes. And he's gay. In person, it's pretty obvious.

  7. He falls under the "straight narcissist" category. Either way, giving guys boners makes him feel powerful, even if his closet may be full of new suits.

  8. Oops, someone is losing some hair. Must be from all the internal toxicity.

  9. I would usually say "girl just wants to have fun" let him be!! However, this one... NO! We as a community should, out him, shame him, shun him, expose him and anything else we can do to bring to light the obvious hate this queen has for the gay community.

  11. Good on him for being proud of his physique and for not surrendering to the Gladys Kravitzes of the gay media.

  12. When I read the title "popular shirtless Instagram account" I was expecting Schock to have dozens and dozens of shirtless photos. Of the 60 photos that loaded by default, 2 featured him shirtless. TWO. This is a made up controversy.

  15. Let's just hope his constituents vote him out in November.

  16. Mr. Shock may or may not be gay, but he is most certainly a narcissist. Just because he's attractive, young and takes care of his body doesn't mean he's gay. Good God no wonder the straight world hates us.

  17. He's sick and depraved.

  18. His downfall is going to be deee-licious! Even his nipple pics won't help. Pass the popcorn!

  19. This is gonna hurt but did you notice the guy is going crown bald? He's losing his hair. By the time he is 40 he'll have a shiny crown and his 'dreaminess' will have dissipated into that of an old man. Ha ha!

  20. I'm not gay but my boyfriend is. Bald guys are hot, too. Jason Statham, anyone?

  21. Luuuurd. I'd vote for him in an underwear contest, but that's about it.

  22. His political muscle in the Closeted Republican Gay Caucus (CRGC) is at steak if it gets out he ain't no power bottom.

  23. @Rocky - While this guy is kinda cute.. i've seen many a bald man who is WAY more attractive than this "dreamy" boy. Though.. I find a shaved head rather hot... I guess it could just be a personal preference.

  24. Guys. This dude is from a Peoria/Sprigfield IL congressional district and is in Chicago frequently. He was seen in Sidetracks in Boystown many times with his boyfriend before running for Congress. I have met him at political events multiple times. The dude is 100% Gay, closeted, and a hypocrite. The IL GOP party leaders know he is and just wish he would come out and move on because they think he has a future.

  25. He's so anti-gay, he must be a perfect Kinsey 6 (like his boyfriend).
