Muscle morons

Bodybuilders band together for the most homoerotic antigay protest of all time

When bodybuilders get together, it’s usually to discuss smoothie recipes and compare fabrics for competition posing trunks.

But a recent meeting of muscular minds in Indonesia had far more sinister intent: a modestly attended but rabidly antigay protest complete with signs reading “Do not let Indonesia become Sodom and Gomorrah” and “Gyms are not a place of sin.”

Proving that modern life has become a ham-fisted satire that’s trying too hard, the four bodybuilders illustrated their antigay sentiment by attending the protest in Jakarta shirtless, flexing, and all greased up in baby oil. They stopped just short of fellating one another.

At least one can applaud their body-positive and inclusive message as to what kind of physique qualifies one as a “bodybuilder.”

The Gaily Grind reports the protest was in response to a recent raid in Jarkata that found police arresting 141 men in a popular gym/sauna. The men inside were accused of violating pornography laws and running a gay prostitution ring.

Proving again that Indonesia has their signals mixed up regarding the whole gay/antigay paradigm, police reportedly forced the men to strip down for photographs and then published them alongside the men’s names and places of residence on social media.

In conclusion, everything is weird.

Ttake a look at the bodybuilder protest below, and marvel at the fact that they wear flowers in their hair:

    Bodybuilders? I think at least one of them needs a bra.

      ROFL Oh my god Chris thank you for making my day, your comment is pure comedy gold.

    They do realize that Sodom and Gomorrah had to do with in hospitality. I’d say they’re doing a fine job of doing that themselves.

  • Glynn

    Yep, the tubby one runs like he just shat his pants – nothing there to make this homo feel remotely erotic.

    You should look up the anti marriage protests but shirtless French men in Paris – it’s like the start of a Cadinot video.

      The over-compensation is major with these idiots: the shirtless French guys you mention, but also a lot of the anti-gay Russian guys– that Russian creep who beat up gay teenagers has about eight million cheesecake shots of himself all over the web. They sure do like to pose and think about gay sex all the time– it doesn’t take Dr. Freud to decode what’s really going on in their pointy little heads.

    The usual gay panic from closet queens. Yawn.

    The older guy in the camouflage pants I would figure for a sexually frustrated martial arts instructor. The Chubby one and the other guy with no shirt on I would figure for constructions workers. The one with the shirt on I would figure a frustrated local transit bus operator.

    To sum them all up I would figure the chubby young one a bottom whom the older three all enjoy fisting or “toying” around with, shall we say, at the house of the older guy at least once a month. Yes, thats what I see here regardless of Indonesia’s position on gay men.

    Tell me this is comedy. It’s got to be comedy, right –both the “antigay” part and the “bodybuilding” part?
