“I Love Women”

"I am a butt-head"

Apart from writing that idiotic song “I Love College” Asher Roth is a pretty cool dude. He supports gay rights and attends pride marches with Clay Aiken and Lady GaGa (who?), but he himself would like y’all to know he is not gay:

I hate to disappoint and take away the entertainment of it all but I am straight, not gay. It’s disheartening to know such “news” on someone’s personal life can be portrayed as fact with no viable source. This, to me, is an opportunity to expose our vulnerability to lies and manipulation through unprofessional and irresponsible news outlets, in which people consider TRUTH. Further, someone’s sexual orientation should NEVER be big news, as it delivers a troubling message to children that they can’t be themselves without fear of judgment. Race, creed, and sexual persuasion should not just be tolerated but understood and accepted. It’s extremely disappointing that this topic would be used with the intention of being hurtful. We are near 2010….2010!! Yet race, sex and religion still play a major role in a hate driven society. For the love of the future and humanity….let’s wake up.

I post about this only because Roth has it right, someone’s sexual orientation should not be a big deal. But it seems odd to me that Roth would feel the need to make a statement that he is heterosexual while also stating that sexual preference is no biggie.
