Right Wing World Notices Aaron Schock Gay Rumor

The buzz over the weekend is that that cute little muscley GOP Congressman from Illinois, Aaron Schock, just might be gay. You don't say. Well, he initially came to the attention of gay bloggers because he's a) cute, b) often photographed in skimpy clothing, and c) votes anti-gay like all the time. Then, people started to notice that he's often photographed in ways that straight people just aren't. And that there is significant scuttlebutt out of Illinois that he's in a "glass closet."

Well now, a journalist has posted a pondering to Facebook which heavily implies that Schock is in fact gay. I, like many other politically active gay people, see absolutely nothing wrong with "outing" a closeted person who does tangible damage to the gay community. If he had an unremarkable or positive record on such issues, I'd be a bit more skittish. As it stands, I say shine a light on him.

Right Wing World has a slightly more sticky issue on their hands with this though. First and foremost, they love to rag on gay people. So they're totally on board with Schock's voting record. But if he's really gay, they have to first condemn him for that, while simultaneously finger-wagging at the left for making an issue of it at all. It's a bit of an outrage/faux outrage tightrope. Schock just might have a costume in his closet perfect for that activity!
