Jackass Fights for Gay Rights in 3D and G-Strings, No Really…It’s in Vanity Fair
It’s no secret Jackass is homoerotic. Until last week, however, I was never sure if they were being cool or mocking the gays. Turns out these guys are as cool as they are crazy.
Jackass Fighting for Gay Rights with Nipple Torture and Anal Play, No Really…
While I wouldn’t normally associate the crew of Jackass with Vanity Fair or gay rights, in a recent graphic interview, Knoxville and Steve-O broke it down.
Q: So listen, I’m not sure how to broach this subject. There’s a lot of half-naked men in Jackass, and a lot of anal play and nipple torture and testicle touching. Is it possible that Jackass is at least a smidge gay?
Knoxville: I’m offended you just said a smidge!
Q: It’s more than a smidge?
Knoxville: We’re over here sitting on rainbows and you say a smidge.
Q: You’re a gay pride parade waiting to happen?
Knoxville: We’re a gay pride parade that’s happening! And in 3-D!
Q: It’s not just homoerotic tension?
Knoxville: No, man, it’s all about release with us.
Steve-O: We always thought it was funny to force a heterosexual MTV generation to deal with all of our thongs and homoerotic humor. In many ways, all our gay humor has been a humanitarian attack against homophobia. We’ve been trying to rid the world of homophobia for years, and I think gay people really dig it too.
Q: This was way too easy. I had all of these questions designed to lure you into admitting your subconscious desire to fuck each other. But apparently you’re not suppressing anything.
Knoxville: Suppressing?! Wait till I tell the guys you said suppressing! We’re not suppressing anything! We’re over here sitting on dicks!
The best part is Knoxville showed his commitment to the gay community by having a screening at The Eagle LA. Now that is classy, with a ‘K’.
