Beckham Eats Up Gay Love

David Beckham knows you want him – and he loves it!

The soccer dynamo sat down with BBC Radio 2 this week and said he’s honored to be a gay icon.

I’m very honored to have the tag of gay icon…Maybe it’s things like (the fact) I like to look after myself, I like to look smart and presentable most of the time.

Trust us, David, it’s less to do with how you dress…

Speaking of dressing, Beckham also shared a special sartorial memory.

I always liked to look good, even when I was a little kid. I was given the option when I was a page boy once of either wearing a suit or wearing knickerbockers and long socks and ballet shoes – and I chose the ballet shoes and knickerbockers. It was a little bit strange at the time and my dad gave me a bit of stick – but I was happy.

And when you’re happy, David Beckham, we’re happy…

    Some gay guys have such low self-esteem that they will chase after anything with a penis no matter how repulsive, homophobic or rabidly anti-gay they are. Night Charm had a post recently filled with photos of homophobes and gay bashers it was titled “Top Ten Worst Guys That We’d Fuck Anyway”. How’s that for an unhealthy dose of self-hatred? Beckham and his wife would do or say anything for publicity and their PR Company LOVES empty-headed fags and editors that cant get enough of their phony ways. Eat it up girls stuff yourself with Beckham maybe that will solve some of your Eleanor Rigby problems.

    Huh? Since when is David Beckham a homophobe?

  • SeaFlood

    BTW, the article ggreen is talking about is here: and a year old. And reading over just the first two entries, I don’t understand how he is relating this to Beckham — who hasn’t been anti-homosexuals or anything like that. His ballet slippers and knickerbocker incident spoke about him — not said that gay folks are “light on their feet” — I don’t get it either, Alexa.

    Beckham is and always has been profoundly homofriendly, as this blog is citing. Why is ggreen hating on the guy?

  • ggreen

    I don’t hate Bekham (I don’t know him personally, do the worshipping editors here?) and I haven’t called him a homophobe. I just don’t suffer fools that worship him.

    I think if David Beckham really loved me, he would call and ask for a date.

    Beckham has never published or behaved in a homophobic way. He looks good and has done well in life.

    I might understand ggreen when s/he says: “… no matter how repulsive, homophobic or rabidly anti-gay they are.” if the tag were attached to an image of a homophobe. Attaching it to Becks is either confused or malicious.

    Beckham is a good guy who looks good in undies. You should take a pill or avoid looking if you don’t like the image.
