In today’s installment of Ugly Heterosexual Men Having Unwarranted Opinions About the Gay Community, the current star of ABC’s hit reality show The Bachelor tells TV Page that a gay version of the show would be a terrible idea because gay people are “perverted.” Are you shocked?
The idea of a “gay Bachelor” has been a talking point for contestants of this franchise for some time now. When asked if he thought a gay or bisexual version of the show would be a “good idea,” Juan Pablo Galavis said “No… I respect [gay people] but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids…”
You know, because one man dating, making out with, and having sex with 20+ women he just met on national television sets a much better example for children.
Galavis—a vision of heterosexuality who wears decorative purple socks and competes in pageants—thinks a gay Bachelor would be “too hard to watch”:
“Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having peoples… Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.”
Plus, if he’s not mistaken, gay people are kinda perverted and stuff:
“There’s this thing about gay people… it seems to me, and I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not… but they’re more ‘pervert’ in a sense. And to me the show would be too strong… too hard to watch.”
Careful, ladies! Don’t all tackle this charmer at once!
