Rep. Aaron Schock Burned His Gay Belt. What About His Homosexual Shirt?

Rep. Aaron Schock says he “burned the belt” he was wearing in this photo at Tuesday’s White House picnic because he “never thought a pic of me w/ my shirt on would go viral,” a throwback to the shirtless pic that did. But burning the belt isn’t enough to rid yourself of gay cooties, Mr. Congressman. That shirt and those pants need some kerosene, too. And we don’t even know what shoes you were wearing. Gucci slip-on loafers? Off with their soles!

  • The Gay

    Can we discuss the belt as well? This guy couldn’t get any gayer.

  • red phone

    We are discussing the belt. It’s the whole point of this post, actually. : )

  • Brutus

    I really do love that shirt.

  • A

    does he have a beard? if so, who?

  • slobone

    A tisket a tasket, I also like his basket…

  • scott ny'er

    Cute dude. That’s a very bright belt he’s wearing. I like the shirt. Too bad he’s a douche. And against gays.

  • Jesse Helms

    There’s nothing wrong with his belt, but I would have chosen something in a warmer shade. The shirt is fine, like Rep. Shock.

  • Devonasa

    What color shoes could he POSSIBLY be wearing to go along and match with that outfit…

    I like the shirt, but the belt is alitte much.

  • Sacramento

    He fell out of a gay tree, hit every gay branch on the way down, landed on a gay guy (and did him), then stole his outfit. Not that being gay is bad, but could that douche look any gay-er?

  • Jesse Helms

    What is a gay tree? I need about 5 in my backyard to keep the ++OTHER++ Jesse Jason Helms from infiltrating the perimeter!

  • hephaestion

    He looks fabulous here. Too bad he is anti-fabulous, i.e., anti-gay. Stupid closet case.

  • hephaestion

    Queerty, you misspelled his name. It is Schock, not Shock.

  • Jesse Helms

    Queerty struggles with spelling. They have spelled the surname of the poor man who got bashed in Savannah two if not three ways.

  • Samwise

    Damn, he is fine. And yeah, he looks totally gay. If I saw this picture without a clue as to who he was, I’d assume he was out and proud. That older couple has that whole “See, we know a gay person! Aren’t we hip and trendy like the youngins?” look about them.

    Sigh. I wish he wasn’t a homophobe. It’s not fair for such hotties to be homophobes.

  • D'oh, The Magnificent

    If he’s trying to prove he’s not gay, he may want to be a little less DRAMATIC. I mean- burning your belt. Really ?


    Lordy! All she needs is a rainbow pouring out of her mouth with unicorns riding on it to complete the “how to spot a Homosexual” poster…………….

  • Jesse Helms

    Burning such a cute belt is bad for the environment! And yep, the man is fine lookin’. Too bad he’s stuck in the closet.

  • REBELComx

    While he’s burning that outfit, he may want to cauterize his face too. Anyone else seeing a touch of Ted Haggard there? Just around the eyes, nose, and corners of the mouth?

  • Jesse Helms

    @REBELComx: You got it….I kept thinking that there was something too familiar with his face. But from the face down, he’s still supah-fine.
    Well, other than being a self-righteous douché bag.

  • alan brickman

    typical closeted drama queen…..

  • Cam

    I’m getting so tired of these closet case politicians.

  • Scott from CA

    He really is a good looking guy, too bad he’s so full of hate.

  • Cam

    So he isn’t even really TRYING to hide the fact he’s gay anymore? And now he’s saying that he “Burned that belt” so he isn’t just gay, he’s a major Drama queen as well.

  • James UK

    He should’ve eaten the belt. Or else tied it around his neck. Tightly. Very, very tightly.

  • James

    What I really want to know is, what kind of footwear choice did he make to go with that outfit! Did he try to match the belt? Did he go with some sort of white shoes? A sandal, flip-flops? If he went with a sandal, did he get a pedicure, or spend any time himself on his feet?

  • Jeremy

    Heh heh heh, this does not say “young, anti-gay Republican”. It SCREAMS “gay interior designer”. Maybe his “assistant” AKA “boyfriend” needs to rethink about the wardrobe a little bit.

  • jeffree

    Honestly, how many str8 dudes get their clothing and fashion inspiration from the International Male website/ catalog ?!

    Last couple years we’ve learned an important lesson: the more homophobic a public figure is, the more likely it is that he’s a closet case…..

  • Steve

    Whoever chooses this guys clothing is an absolutely SCREAMING queen. Does he choose his own clothing, or does his lover buy his clothing for him? No straight woman would buy such things for her man.

    It’s not so much the choosing from the closet on a daily basis. It’s the choosing from the store, before buying. Seriously. A chartreuse-and-white plaid shirt? Bright white pants? A bright blue belt? Why are those things in a “straight” guys closet, at all?

    The only answer is that this guy is in the closet himself, and subconsciously is desperately trying to come out of that closet.

  • Cam

    Seriously, who dresses like that?!?!?

  • (required)

    I want his “ignorance” inside me. Awkward.

  • adman

    What is it with the self hating crowd and their seemingly irrisistable drive to use every opportunity imaginable to kick that closet door wide open? Is that like a dare? What?

  • James

    He looks fantastic…I don’t let political rhetoric be the only thing I judge a person on he’s obviously not a hard right homophobe to wear that outfit! A true homophobe would never be caught in clothes like this. No this man just needs a hug and some coaching to love himself from deep within…and I’m more than willing to help him discover his true self. Ill also help him discover the joys of gay sex…if you didn’t follow what I was saying lol!

  • Greg

    I am from Peoria Illinois and I can tell ALL OF YOU for a fact Aaron Schock is gayer than Christmas!!! When he was 18 he won the President seat of the school board then slowly schmoozed himself into every local community event so people would know who he is plus his daddy is a doctor and greased the local medias palms so no one would ask him about his personal life like they did the candidates he would run against each time.
    He even had the guts to vote AGAINST an anti-discrimination law in Peoria protecting gays and minorities from job and housing protection discrimination. PLEASE let someone out this worthless excuse of a politician so the public may see the REAL Aaron Schock!

  • Greg

    PS: Being gay myself I knew quite a few influential gay men who knew Aaron personally who at the time thought he would benfit them. They now know they put their trust in the wrong man. He is a social climber who has his eyes on the White House. How terrible it would be if he was voted in just because people liked the way he looks. For all of you WAKE UP NOW!!!!!

  • Republican

    Sorry to bump this, but I really would like to know where one can get that shirt. I absolutely love it.

  • declanto

    @Steve: Dear, the color “chartreuse” is a bluish green pastelly shade. His shirt is more “Mauve”, but perhaps a tad too deep. I’d bet that’s Mommie under his right pectoral, and doesn’t she look proud?

  • declanto

    @Steve: Actually, the belt is closer to “chartreuse”. NOT bright blue.

  • Stenar

    Burn the belt??? What’s he going to do about the majorly gay face he’s giving off?

  • Greg

    I’m from Peoria Illinois where this asshole came from and stepped on many people to get to where he is at now. When he had the opportunity while serving on the Peoria City Council to vote for anti-discrimination laws to protect gays against housing,jobs, etc he voted against it. His daddy is a doctor and they are Apostolic Christians(similar to the Amish) and they keep the press from prying into little Aaron’s closet. He is NOT for the people, Aaron is very much a self serving bastard! TMZ needs to expose him, eventually he has to slip up. He’s on the national scene now !

  • Greg

    @jeffree: I’m from Peoria where he is from. Yes Aaron is a big closet case in Peoria

  • Athena

    Criminy, now onder he burnt that belt – it probably blinded anyone who looked at it! Note to self: if I ever get a blue belt, make sure it isn’t -neon-.

  • Truth Addict

    I can’t believe no one has mentioned those shirt sleeves yet. Those sleeves were “strike three” on my “yes-he-is” checklist. Belt, strike one, white pants, strike two, perfectly cuffed shirtsleeves,we have a winner.

  • Armand

    Love the outfit.

    @Truth Addict: I never noticed his perfectly cuffed sleeves. He must have OCD.

  • Montemalone

    @scott ny’er: Yep, against gays. My guess, his back against some other guys front.

  • Montemalone

    @Greg: Now that’s he started his “group exercise” club in Congress, it shouldn’t be too long before some juicy dish finds its way into the light of day.

  • ShowMeGuy

    I’m sorry. He may not yet know that he is gay, but he will figure it out one day. You CAN be a happy homosexual and a card holding member of the GOP….I don’t know why anyone would want to hold the gop card….but you can.

  • Frank

    It looks like a photo from a PFLAG picnic!

  • Steve

    Will he be burning his hair too?

  • Albert

    Gorgeous, a snappy dresser and anti-gay. Sounds like a gay congressman to me.

  • prohomo

    @Brutus: You mean that tablecloth?!

  • Chris

    NOT GAY! Please, look at that body and you could wash clothes on those abs. No straight man why simply supports gays is actually straight himself! He is a hottie though.

  • Jesus H Christ

    Ohmygod, he is so hot. I’d love to seduce him and get lots of pictures to post. Yes, he is a right wing SOB, but I’ll get the goods on him — and have a good time doing so. Woof.

  • Paul

    I’m just seeing this photo now.
    And wow: He is one matching accessory away from his own show on Bravo!
    He’s gonna have to burn everything from the neck DOWN to erase all that gay!

  • devonhunter

    @ declanto – The belt is cyan, not chartreuse. Chartreuse is between green and yellow, not green and blue:

    I need to see the ensemble in a full length photo. Not to get final confirmation of this self-loathing shit head’s gayness, but because I need to know 1) if his pants are ankle length or capris, and 2) what type of foot wear he paired with this fabulous outfit.
