No Fat Chix

Michael Medved used to host the low-rent Siskel and Ebert with Jeffrey Lyons, the one that told me precisely what content was unsafe for kids in each movie, causing me to immediately change the channel. Funny story, turns out he's insane:

Tim Hardaway (and most of his former NBA teammates) wouldn’t welcome openly gay players into the locker room any more than they’d welcome profoundly unattractive, morbidly obese women. I specify unattractive females because if a young lady is attractive (or, even better, downright “hot”) most guys, very much including the notorious love machines of the National Basketball Association, would probably welcome her joining their showers. The ill-favored, grossly overweight female is the right counterpart to a gay male because, like the homosexual, she causes discomfort due to the fact that attraction can only operate in one direction. She might well feel drawn to the straight guys with whom she’s grouped, while they feel downright repulsed at the very idea of sex with her.

Cuz, fat chix like totally dig on hott NBA playurz and stuff!!1!

How come, in Medved's mind, all women are automatically attracted to NBA players? How come such supposedly unrequited attraction automatically causes "discomfort"? This is the type of logic that losers who think they're God's gift to women assume everybody uses. They think no women could possibly resist their manly urges. And they LOVE being uncomfortable about thinking that they'll have to shoot down some woman who likes them. They get off on the cruelty. The discomfort comes in when they have to think about their own inadequacy.

Quite the bank shot, insulting gay men and obese women at the same time. Well played.
