NEW FAVORITE THING: The Aaron Schock Gay Parody Twitter

You're working some fierce side-eye there, Mr. Schock.

You’re working some fierce side-eye there, Mr. Schock.

If you’re in mourning that the severely homophobic (and, might I add, severely hot) Republican congressman Aaron Schock’s Instagram account was locked down after being “outed” by journalist Itay Hod, then you’re in luck. There’s a rather humorous and oh-so-juicy parody replacement on Twitter: @GayRepSchock.

With a bio that reads, “I’m not gay, I’m FABULOUS,” a shirtless profile pic from Schock’s now infamous Men’s Health photo shoot, and hashtags with the likes of #DontTellBoehner, #TeamSchocker, and #TheseABS, the account is a humorous reminder that Schock’s speculated sexuality is all the more hypocritical given his extreme anti-gay voting record.

Here’s a taste of some of Gay Aaron Shock‘s tweets:

As much as many of us would love to share a shower with Aaron Schock and be his “cuddle buddy,” you have to ask yourself: would I really want to associate with someone who, in “real life,” is so disingenuously homophobic?

Then again, after taking one look at his abs, perhaps it wouldn’t be so bad to be one of those, to use @GayRepSchock’s hashtags, #ThingsThatOffendLiberals.

  • Is this the best thing ever? Or instead, is it a disgusting, bully tactic that preys on the worst stereotypes of the gay community and assigns them, out of base vengeance, to a man who may or may not be struggling with his own sexuality? It’s beneath us as a community, doesn’t help anyone involved, and isn’t even funny.

      I completely agree with Aaron Spencer, who suggests it’s beneath the gay community to act in this immature, self-hating way. Schock may deserve humiliation for his views, but first we must try to understand his problems with us. An out, penitent State Representative beats a bruised, revengeful Representative, any day.
