Out-gay Edge radio personality Mike Puru has announced that he is a homophobic idiot.
By ANDY BOREHAM
The insecure gay revealed his feelings about being openly gay to Herald reporter Michele Hewitson, and he comes across like a total fuckwit.
He said he won’t show any public affection to his fiancé—including walking in the streets holding hands—and also has a phobia about walking with his dogs, who he fears people will say are ‘gay’, even though it’s actually him who labels them. “Regan [his fiancé] insists on getting these gay dogs,” Puru told the reporter. “At least it’s not a poodle!” *face palm*.
The idiot goes on about how he doesn’t like stereotypes surrounding being gay and doesn’t want to be judged as being gay, even though he happens to be just that. “… maybe I’m a homophobic homo.”
Puru joins other insecure separatist homos who insist that gays appearing hetero is the only way to be. “He’s completely straight,” he says of his partner. “Well, he’s not completely straight! Ha, ha. But, you know, he can go to a bar and people wouldn’t think he was gay or anything.” Wow, what a fuckwit.
The discussion then turns to Puru “pretending” to be straights for years — I’m sorry, but isn’t ‘straight-acting’ pretending to be straight? You’re still doing it, buddy!
It turns out Puru doesn’t mind being gay when it comes to getting cock, though. He revels to the reporter about his apparent hook-up with a member of the Vengaboys. Boom, boom, boom, boom, anyone? (He once hit me up for a hook-up online and said, before he sent his picture, that I need to be very discrete because he works in radio and TV. ‘Are you Mike Puru?’ was my instant response, and this was years before he ‘came out’.)
I completely understand that some people aren’t comfortable with their sexuality, and that some gays don’t at all conform to stereotypes, but Mike, you’re a public figure. You came out as gay (which was an awesome thing to do) and no doubt helped many young people struggling with their own sexualities to face their own uphill battles. But turning around and saying such divisive and homophobic things about being gay is a slap in the face to gay men and women all over New Zealand.
You are a fuckwit, and you’ve just lost any cred you gained from your coming out on the radio.
PS: Try my patented test: I call it Andy’s Straight-Acting Test, and it’s infallible. Try saying ‘straight-acting’ ten times really fast with a cock in your mouth. Yeah.
