Should "Reality" Play Role In Beauty Pageant?

Gay Porn Star Raises Competition Questions

Argentina’s gay gods announced that a porn star named Jorge Schmeda will represent them in this year’s Mr. Gay competition. Upon hearing the news, Gay Wired‘s Dylan Vox gets down and dirty with our nation’s porn opinions:

In the United States, gay porn is often looked upon as representing the gay community in a negative light, but other countries like Argentina have less hang ups about allowing their community to be represented by someone who has participated in the industry.

Wait, we’re supposed to respect porn stars as we would other people? You’re blowing our mind, Vox!

The journo also takes the opportunity to question the competition’s aesthetic and civil ideology:

There is nothing wrong with porn or rewarding and promoting beauty, but thinly disguising it as a means to conquer gay stereotypes seems like an injustice to the men involved.

Sometimes it’s OK to call a spade a spade, and no one will object to the eye candy that will be present at the competition. But if Mr. Gay is truly trying to break down gay stereotypes, then they may have missed the mark.

Oh, come on! First of all, it’s not as if Mr. Gay becomes the queer diplomat of the world. What does Mr. Gay do, anyway? If Vox wants the competition to break stereotypes then he’s opening the door to an unattractive reality. Sure, there are plenty of hot gay guys out there, but we imagine the less attractive trump them ten fold. We’re all about unattractive people (obviously…), but not in a beauty pageant…
