CBS Journalist Itay Hod Outs Self Loathing Espadrille Wearing Closet Case GOP Rep. Aaron Schock

In a rather lengthy Facebook post, gay CBS journalist Itay Hod has essentially outed Illinois Republican Congressman Aaron Schock.

Schock (which rhymes with cock) has been dodging his gay “rumors” for years while constantly voting the along the lines of the GOP’s anti-gay ticket.

“People always say, no one has the right to out anyone. that coming out is a private matter. i disagree. as you can imagine, not a very popular opinion. but bear with me. 

Here’s a hypothetical: what if you know a certain GOP congressman, let’s just say from Illinois, is gay… and you know this because one of your friends, a journalist for a reputable network, told you in no uncertain terms that he caught that GOP congressman and his male roommate in the shower… together. Now they could have been good friends just trying to conserve water. but there’s more. what if this congressman has also been caught by TMZ cameras trolling gay bars. now what if you know that this very same guy, the darling of the gop, has also voted against repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, opposed the repeal of DOMA, is against gay marriage; and for the federal marriage amendment, which would add language to the us constitution banning gay marriage and would likely strike down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country?

Are we still not allowed to out him? 

Let me ask another question… doesn’t the media have an OBLIGATION to expose his hypocrisy? If he had done something so hypocritical and he wasn’t gay, wouldn’t we demand journalists do their job? But they can’t… because we won’t let them. you’re not allowed to out ANYONE, we tell them. 

We’ve created a situation where even though news organizations know this guy is gay, they can’t report it because he hasn’t said so on twitter. 

If we keep saying that being gay is genetic; ergo, it’s no different than having blue eyes or blonde hair… than why are not allowed to mention it? why do we need anyone’s consent to talk about their sexuality? are we not allowed to say someone has blue eyes until they post a fb message telling us they are in fact blue?

We’ve been so effective at convincing everyone that outing people is a crime against humanity, that we’ve made it impossible for any network or news organization to talk about this “hypothetical” gay republican congressman and his hypocritical vote against gay rights. they won’t touch it for fear of retribution from GLAAD or HRC. (in fact when my friend’s network interviewed said hypothetical republican, he talked about wanting to find a nice woman to marry… and the network aired it… knowing it was a lie…)”

Good for Itay.

This has been another of the GOP’s dirty little gay cover-ups D.C. since 2009 when Schock took office.  Schock calls his being questioned of his sexuality and his anti-gay GOP voting record “inappropriate and ridiculous” and not “worthy of further response.” Well it is appropriate and not only is it worthy of a response from him but is also the LGBT community’s duty to out him once and for all before she becomes a longtime GOP Closet Case Teflon Queen like Miss Lindsey Graham.

The media both gay and straight and we as individual activists ABSOLUTELY have an obligation and a right to expose such dangerous hypocrisy in elected officials.

Now all we need is one gay man to step forward and come out publicly and admit to sleeping or dating Aaron Schock.

If you are out there and you are reading this PLEASE contact us or someone else in the media.  You’d be doing your community a great service.

  1. I agree with Itay 100%!
    Servants to and of the public, including but not limited to members of Congress but also inclusive governors, mayors, members of city and county councils and boards, schools, in fact all(!) elected individuals to public services, should be ousted when they shoeing any activity of being involved in homosexuality, especially when they are openly opposing homosexuality by for instance voting against equality, all-inclusive marriage licenses, raiding gay bars and locations were gay people meet etc. etc.
    And yes, I am still 100% in agreement with Itay if the outing means that the person is hurt, socially, financially and even when his marriage is ended by it!
    And again yes, I am in 100% agreement with Itay when it would cause the person to commit suicide!
    And still yes, when it involves individuals from not-public organizations like football-trainers, players, and coaches!
    As well as people who are active in for instance banks, building associations, airlines etc. etc.!
    In short, I am for outing all those who publicly are opposing equal rights and secretly are part of the gay community in what way ever!

What do you think?
