Don’t Let This Maserati Fool You Into Thinking Mike Ruiz Is Defined By Capitalism

If I could change one thing about our world, I would change how people measure their self worth against material objects. I enjoy capitalism, but I do not let capitalism define me. You are not who you are married to or what car you drive or what kind of apartment you live in. What you are is how you are as a human being.

—Mike Ruiz, the beefcake-y photographer and star of LOGO’s upcoming The A List, on striving to care less about meaningless frivolity [via]

      You know I have met and talked with Mike in Chelsea and he has been pleasant and chatty…I began to think that maybe he was just a talented, nice guy stuck in a body by steroids. But then I saw this pic that he had put on his facebook page – just at the beginning of the depression in 2008 – that I realized what a shocking narcissist he was. Aside from what appear to be ab impants, imagine, while hundreds of thousands of people are losing their jobs, he flaunts the purchase of a Maserati! I said nothing, made no comment, but was shocked and disgusted…. A few weeks later, I received an invitation to join his new fan page – an invitation I quickly declined. Soon thereafter, he defriended me, and no longer says hello when I see him in the nabe.

      True story, this!

      Mike is a sweet, wonderful kind man who has been to hell and back and lived to tell. He has the same insecurities as every other gay man but is anything but a douche.

      Buck up Mike with fame comes hell.
