Chris Kluwe Discusses Slapping Butts And Gay Marriage With Stephen Colbert

America’s favorite outspoken football player and gay ally Chris Kluwe stopped by The Colbert Report last night where talk inevitably turned to the “lustful cockmonster” heard ’round the world.

Colbert questioned why Kluwe, dressed to the nines in flip-flops and a beanie, would support gay marriage when “football players are a thousand miles from gay.”

“Men in tight pants patting each other on the butt? Nothing gay about that,” Colbert says before slapping a series of imaginary rears. “They’re like get that butt outta my face! Get it outta here! They’re so angry!”

That’s our favorite kind of angry.

      There’s a homophobic assumption in Stephen Colbert’s statement that “football players are a thousand miles away from gay’. Not only are there gay players, there are lots of bisexual players.

      @Brian: Which, if you have ever watched more then 2 minutes of Stephen Colbert’s show, you would know was him “in character”. He was making fun of the assumption through satire, as he does in every episode.

      @LandStander: @Brian: And I think Kluwe’s “You’d be surprised–” was an attempt to point out that there are indeed plenty of gay and bi players, in football and other team sports. He just didn’t get the chance to complete his thought. (And yeah, Colbert was being characteristically facetious and deliciously ironic and all those other smarty-pants things he does so well.)

      Cool interview but Colbert did try to save himself by mentioning all are welcome in his studio audience and that he’d throw glitter at folks during a pride parade.

      @jberry267: what do you mean by “save himself”? Colbert has ALWAYS been an ardent supporter of equality.

      Chris has beautiful feet. I’m not a fetishist, but I’d lick them for days!
