“Not That Gay.”

“”People ask me if I’m gay … ’cause I work at Vogue. All of a sudden you turn into a gay man because you like clothes … Open up a magazine and see my track record. I don’t think I’m that gay.” – Professional hockey player Sean Avery on his recent Vogue internship. [Jossip]

      Not that gay…as in “i’m gay, i’m just not SO gay that I’m completely stereotypical.”
      I say that all the time! “Please, I’m not THAT gay.”

      Yeah, because dating young hot celebrities definitely proves one’s straightness…

      Where I come from, if a buffed-out, hyper- masculine jock has an internship at Vogue magazine– the women’s fashion magazine — a lot of people are going to at least ask themselves, if not the guy himself, if that jock is gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

      This seems like a good time to use a Venn diagram. What is the intersection/overlap of professional hockey players, Vogue interns, and straight males? If you think about it, this is where all the “speculation” comes from.

      Is that like being “a little bit pregnant”?

      After his hockey career is over and his internship with Vogue secures his future occupation I’d bet that his fashion world experience teaches him closets are for clothes and that he gets the guts to come out. But as they say, to each in his own time.

      Relax, Sean, one might think you find it offensive that you’re asked if you are gay.

      JJ, that’s called the empty set. And thank you for making me think about Venn diagrams, something which I hadn’t thought about for 25 years!

      My 8th grade algebra teacher was so cute…

      You left off the best part. In the interview Sean talks about his maid ironing his underwear.

      Oh how I love hockey…
