UFC Fighter Quinton Jackson: "Acting is Kind of Gay"

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson a UFC fighter who has recently turned to acting has some not so gay friendly words to say about the acting industry.

"Acting is kind of gay," Jackson said. "It makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you're cold. I don't want a coat over my shoulders! I'm a tough-ass [individual]!"

"Vancouver strikes me as a San Francisco-kind of place," he continued. "And I don't want [individuals] getting ideas about me. I feel in my heart I'm the toughest [individual] on the planet. And I don't want nothing changing my train of thought. If you don't believe that when we step inside the octagon, it shows."
(LA Times)
Some of the toughest wrestlers, boxers, and athletes out there have been gay. It's a shame that "Rampage" buys into the queer stereotypes.

Jackson can be contacted via Twitter.

Some people say that the human species is not evolving, but rather that we are de-evolving.

Mr. Jackson's words certainly lend weight to that theory.

I think in order to make a statement like this he must be somewhat insecure in his own identity. Straight and secure men don't feel the need to gay bash or any kind of bash.

what he says is true, but WHO CARES, actors have to be good in order not to laugh saying those stupid lines and having to look each other in the eyes

It's not true that acting is gay. What is gay like anyway? We are a multitude of personalities and traits. Acting gay is kind of gay, but acting alone has no sexual tilt.

Me think he doth protest too much.

The context behind this is that UFC is softcore pornography for gay, and especially bisexual men. Jackson must realize this on some level and is uncomfortable about it.
