It was just earlier this week that the gay rumors started up again about Republican Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock, rumors which go back at least four or five years, and which last surfaced on Wonkette in 2011. Now we have openly gay CBS correspondent Itay Hod outing Schock on Facebook, so let’s just review the signs that no one should have ignored at this late date, in 2014, when we should know goddamn well what a gay man looks like.
Oh, you’d like to make that ever tiresome PC argument that gay men don’t all look alike and gay men come in all shapes, sizes, and levels of pec definition? Fine. Whatever. But a certain brand of Caucasian, professional gay man looks like this.

To recap, Aaron Schock is the type of (allegedly) closeted GOP prick who voted against the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and was against the repeal of DOMA. Hod says that one of his journalist friends has actually, in real life, walked in on Schock in the shower with the journalist’s gay male roommate. As Hod puts it, to absolve himself of any legal liability, “Now, they could have been good friends just trying to conserve water.”
Needless to say, after AmericaBlog put up “The 7 Gayest Aaron Schock Instagram Posts of 2013,” Schock had the wherewithal to lock down his Instagram account kind of amazing that he hadn’t done this before, actually, given his being in the closet and all. Allegedly.
Here he is free-balling at the Crossfit gym.
Does everyone remember when he was on the cover of Men’s Health showing off his abs?
Whatever. Fine. He has a right to be just as private about his sexuality as Robin Roberts was for DECADES, but really? At this late date? Can a Republican not keep his seat if people know that he’s not just a snappy dressing bachelor with an amazing chest? It’s fucking 2014, people. Your Congressman might like dick. Deal with it.
