Is GOP Congressman Aaron Schock Gay, Bisexual or Straight?
Aaron Schock is the United States Representative for Illinois's 18th congressional district, serving since 2009. He is a member of the Republican Party. Ever since he was elected, there have been rumors of Aaron Schock being a closeted gay politican. The thing is, there are a lot of facts supporting the rumors. First, he's never had a girlfriend or seen with a girlfriend. Second, he follows gay celebrities on Instagram, like Tom Daley. Third, he has been seen in gay clubs by many witnesses! The funny thing is, Aaron Schock is EXTREMELY homophobic. He voted against gay rights and gay marriage laws all the time. This leads many people to think he is a hypocrite.
Recently, CBS journalist Itay Hod (who is gay himself) outed Aaron Schock. In a long Facebook post, Itay Hod ranted that the media has been muzzled from outing anyone for fear of repercussions from gay-rights organizations like GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign. He went on about an "Illinois congressman" with an anti-gay voting history and claimed this congressman was caught in the shower with his male partner by a fellow journalist. A day later, Aaron Schock locked his Instagram and he never made an announcement declining this "outing".
So, do I think he is gay? Well, for sure, after reading about him on the internet from many sources, he is definitely not 100% straight. Anyway, let's hope he stops being so homophobic and start embracing his sexuality and start voting pro-gay.
