Radio Host: Gay Men Cast Skinny Actresses Because They Look Like Boys


A pair of radio hosts ranted on the air Monday about how gay men in the entertainment business like to cast women with bodies "that remind them of 14-year-old boys."

John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou of the Clear Channel-syndicated The John and Ken Show were talking about the thinness of the actresses who walked the red carpet for the Golden Globes the previous evening.

"Gay guys control the fashion industry and the casting industry and the whole Hollywood look," Kobylt said, according to Media Matters. "And gays like bodies that remind them of a 14-year-old boy. Guys like curves. ... It's biological, because a woman with curves looks like she can bear your children successfully and that's biologically what a man is looking for. So sexually a guy is much more turned on by a woman with curves than these 14-year-old boy stick figures. And that's how I know for sure, I don't need to do any research or any proof that it's gay guys who control the entire casting industry."

Media Matters wrote Tuesday that Kobylt's statements perpetuate the myth -- which has been thoroughly debunked -- that gay men are attracted to boys and therefore are more prone to molest children.
