It’s so awesome that Clay Aiken has been
out and about recently because each and every report of the his behavior allows me to play my favorite game: How Is That Not Gay? It’s a nonstop brainteaser as long as the self-described straight man is in public and, like, doing stuff.
Today’s game of How Is That Not Gay involves an alleged bust-up on an airplane Saturday morning between Clay and a fellow passenger (who, in fact, wasn’t a fellow at all). An FBI special agent reported that a spat broke out between a male former American Idol contestant (gee, wonder how many of them were on the same flight as Clay) and a woman, after said contestant put his foot on her arm rest. In response, she shoved him and then flight crew stepped in. Clay later that day told a concert audience that he was beat up by a girl, crying behind his laughter, no doubt.
A physical altercation with a girl? How is that not gay? How much do you want to bet that what went really down was something like the olden days of France, when men would slap each other with their gloves and say, y’know, "D’Artagnan! How dare you talk to me like that, you!," and smack ‘em? [AP/Yahoo! / Image credit: Getty]
