So That’s What Gay Means!?

Some people can’t understand why gay journos like Kenneth Walsh post pictures of hunky men. Luckily, OutsportsJim Buzinski helps LA Daily News understand:

“When it comes to visuals in sports, gay men and straight men are very similar except for the genders that we look at… Men are more visual. So we are just doing what mainstream sites do but we are catering to our audiences. If you look at Sports Illustrated or ESPN magazine, they all have some kind of photo gallery of hot babes in sports, or cheerleaders of the week. In a sense, that is geared toward what their audience mostly is: heterosexual.”

So on Outsports, the photo galleries feature male athletes since its audience skews toward gay men…

Don’t you love when everything comes together? We’ve got one question, though, do you think Buzinski uses the phrase “hot babe” when discussing men like Jeremy Bloom (pictured) or is it reserved for ladies only?

    I don’t know about those chicks, but Jeremy Bloom is definitely a hot babe.

    Also, is anyone else wondering why we have to explain ourselves to anyone? If we choose to post pictures of attractive men, that’s really our business. When they ban Girls Gone Wild and Playboy, we’ll talk.

    He is just delicious. Now that I have returned from wandering aimlessly and getting sidetracked in Google images, I can get back to work.
