Tight Trousers & Slut-Shaming

You may have seen this photo of four young (white) working class lads minding their own business enjoying an evening on the town together, dressed in the way many working class lads dress these days – showing off their ink, their worked-out bodies, and their shaped facial hair. Spornosexuals. Taken by a stranger a couple of summers ago, it was originally posted by Connor Humpage (on the right) to his Instagram, with the self-mocking caption ‘Tight trousers chose us’. The photo was then hate-memed to… Read More »Tight Trousers & Slut-Shaming

Egypt’s Spornosexual Pride Parade (Police Academy Section)

The young men of the Egyptian Police Academy put on a pec-tacular display this week in Cairo, surrounded by — and perched on — the butch toys that come with the job.

Although I might quibble with some of the things the article says – at least as filtered through Google Translate – I can’t disagree with them about that. Shame they didn’t actually credit Dr Simpsonfurter.  (h/t David S)

Spornos Go To War

NATO brings out the big guns. And huge, pumped bazookas. Spornosexuals (and man buns) have been mobilised in the propaganda war. The North Atlantic alliance would like you to meet, like, share and follow Lasse Matberg. Model, influencer, ‘modern Viking’ and hench, hot-oiled Lieutenant in the Royal Norwegian Navy.  To quote the Duke of Wellington, “I don’t know what effect these men will have on the enemy, but by God, they terrify me.”
