Out of all the homophobic actors out there--and I’m sure their numbers are legion--Jensen Ackles irritates me the most. I don’t understand the gay men who worship him. He’s undeniably good looking but he can’t open his mouth without making a homophobic comment. What kills me is that gays everywhere take up for him just because of his looks. “Oh, he didn’t mean it that way;” or “Oh, it was just a joke;” or “Oh, you’re taking his comments too literally;” bullshit like that.
Are you fuckin’ kiddin’ me??? I’m sorry but affecting a lispy high-pitched voice while ineffectually slapping at someone OVER AND OVER AND OVER, TIME AFTER TIME AFTER TIME, IN EVERY POSSIBLE CONTRIVED SITUATION isn’t funny. It isn’t a joke. And, similarly, using the word “gay” or “pansy” as a derogatory adjective in interviews isn’t okay either. Those things are evidence of a belief, people, an attitude toward gays, and I’m sick of guys lusting over him. I’m 46 and own my own architectural firm, and I have 6 architects working for me. Two of them are gay and about 10 years younger than me, and I had listen to them all goddam night go on about this guy. Even on DataLounge his name pops up constantly. It’s like a bunch of freakin’ yeshiva boys jonesin’ to blow motherfuckin’ Hitler.
I don’t know what Ackles makes per episode, but word is that he clears 40k to 50k for an appearance at a “Supernatural” convention. So far this year he’s done twelve. On top of that, once he’s there he charges for meet-and-greets and photo ops, and it’s gays who are putting a lot of that money in his pocket. (Unless you’re [i]too[i/] gay. Then there’s no photo because he won’t pose with you.) Gays are also the ones glued to their tv sets each week, boosting his show’s ratings while they queer every gaze between him and his on-screen brother. [i]Idiots.[i/]
This guy doesn’t even have the testicular fortitude of Sabrina the Teenage Witch! He won’t just come out and say what he thinks about gays, gay marriage or even politics because he knows it would hurt his career. In fact, his wife will re-Tweet stuff showing mild LGBT support just to muddy the waters and throw people, most likely Hollywood producers, off their GOP scent. However, the latest is that Stone Park Trust, the same trust that owns his Brentwood property--the same trust for which he’s the trustee--has allegedly made past donations to NOM, Prop 8 and Romney’s campaign, so anyone who thinks Ackles isn’t a Republican is nuts. His wife’s Twitter page practically spells it out, along with their very devout “I love me some Jesus” status. “Jensen’s favorite book is the Bible;” “His favorite actor is Jim Caviezel;” “His favorite time of year is Easter.” Blah, blah, blah.
Man, I got nothing against anyone’s religion or their personal beliefs about gays and lesbians. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is entitled to their own opinions, but that doesn’t mean that I have to buy their product or watch their show. I’m not going to further any actor’s career so they can fight harder against my rights. And I’m sure not going to give someone like Ackles a starring role in my fantasies. I mean, compare his douchebaggery with the incredibly respectful and classy comments George Clooney made about constantly being called gay. Night and day. Night and day.
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE HOMOPHOBIA, PEOPLE. STOP LUSTING OVER ASSHOLES.
