Couldn't that statue just as easily be considered hetero, but from a female perspective? Ladies can appreciate hot male statues too.

@1: The guy is holding a sword in his crotch, and the handle looks like an erect penis. That type of symbolism is probably a little hotter when viewed through the "gay eye," as entrants to the contest are instructed to do.

@2: I see the symbolism and my point is that I don't think you have to be gay to appreciate it. As a female I appreciate it and think its hot.

Obviously "hot" means skinny and hairless. No fatties please.

(By the way, I'm referring to the original post, not #3.)

@3: Right, but the point of the contest is to view the statues with "gay" hotness in mind. It's not a contest for statues-that-heterosexual-females-might-think-are-hot, it's a contest for statues with gay undertones. Or overtones, for that matter.

If you'd like to throw your own straight-girls-who-like-statues contest, by all means, but this isn't about straight girls.

I think everyone's qualified to judge gay hotness.

Some just won't be willing to admit it.

I love this contest! I can't wait to see all of the photos! I think I'm actually a gay man inside sometimes...only men are way bigger pervs! hahaha Just kidding. I know women are pervs too. We are all pervs and reading Savage Love has proved this to me! TANGENT! Anyway, can't wait for the photos! :)

@1 and 3, I'm with @6. Can't we gay men be allowed to have anything at all to ourselves? Must we be so inclusive that even someone with a gay oriented blog soliciting input from gay men has to create camp contests that include you? I suppose you will next demand we sleep with you as well. Stop being so narcissistic.

St Louis may be an older "art city" than Seattle but they've got their undies in such a tight wad that you'd never suspect how artist-unfriendly they are. It's hard to explain...you really just have to either know artists who try to make a living there, or visit often enough to see it for yourself (or both).
