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

Surfing_schock

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.

This week, Republican congressman Aaron Schock posted a photo of himself surfing the Hawaiian waves to his Instagram account along with this message:

Waikīkī Beach - Enjoying the Aloha spirit thanks to @tulsigabbard hospitality and Surfing Coach Nish for getting me up. Shout out to @oahusurfshots for the pics. #icouldlivehere

He gets extra points for using a filter that gives the photo a real 1970s Hawaii Five-O look.


Ricky Martin Reveals His #Jetlag Superhero Identities: VIDEO

R_martin

Life as an openly gay pop-singer is more than just hard work and tanning. It also involves jet lag and, if you're Ricky Martin, posting Instagram videos of yourself in superhero masks while watching cartoons.

We already knew that he was a hero to animals; maybe he's a hero to metropolis as well. Or maybe he should drink less coffee. Of course, this isn't the first time the singer has played with Instagram.

Watch his video AFTER THE JUMP...

Madonna Shows Off Hairy Armpit on Instagram: 'Long Hair...Don't Care'

Madonna posted an armpit on Instagram and a message to remind us that she doesn't give an F.

E! also reminds us of this 2011 interview:

"Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn't fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite," she told Harper's Bazaar in December 2011. "I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits."

"The boys in my school would make fun of me," Madonna said of being "tortured" in school. "'Hairy monster.' You know, things like that." It wasn't until her late teenage years, when she began hanging out at gay clubs, that the pop star found her identity. "Straight men did not find me attractive. I think they were scared of me because I was different. I've always asked, 'Why? Why do I have to do that? Why do I have to look this way? Why do I have to dress this way? Why do I have to behave this way?'"

Of course, some of Madonna's Instagram followers are behaving the same way.
