Rugby and Marriage Equality

Wales_vs_Australia_2011_RWC_(4)

It seems Australia looked at the NFL anthem protests tearing apart the sport in the US and thought “yeah, nah, true I’ll have some of that”. It’s the only explanation I can think of as to why we have ended up in the situation where our politicians are debating the merits of Macklemore like it’s a 2012 house party.  Macklemore wants to sing his song Same Love at the NRL grand final to support the push for same-sex marriage here.

Damn social activists. In an update to my last blog post, they are now up in arms about Sportsbet allowing betting on the outcome of the marriage equality vote (Star Observer 28/09/2017). Don’t tell an Australian they can’t bet on anything. Right now my family is betting on when my grandma’s going to die. Beer, gambling, now rugby league, what part of Australian society don’t they feel the need to inject their politics into?

In all fairness though, this isn’t the first time that the NRL has become involved in gay issues: The 1989 NRL promo is the gayest fucking thing I’ve ever seen in my life (Link). It’s more homoerotic than Bromans.

Tina Turner sings over shot after lingering shot of lascivious rippling man flesh gratuitously displayed, whether the players be running:

Or running in groups:

Or licking their lips:Screen Shot 2017-09-29 at 12.28.36 pm

Stretching/smouldering:

Having their crotches filmed for no particular reason:

Reclining in the surf:

Or just plain squirting themselves in the face:

A gay man made this ad, that’s something I would bet on. The whole political commentary/outrage machine is just so exhausting. Let’s just go back to 1989. Let everyone do their own thing. NRL fans get to release their suppressed manly feelings by having a day they can scream homophobic slurs with impunity and the gays get to watch the display of young men with the bodies of gods pinning each other down with their bulging biceps and massive thighs. And if something happens to slip out of the tiny shorts, well that’s just gravy.

Stop over-thinking your liberal guilt and just enjoy the glory that is the Burgess brothers:

Especially George:

Google ‘George Burgess nude twitter leak’ and you might just lactate out your eyes. I’m going to end this blog post now before I start posting every sports star dick pic leak and my site turns into *shudder* Queerty. Besides, it’s been a long day and I just want to curl up with a good book.
