Tattoo Of Packer’s Aaron Rodgers In Jockstrap Has Homophobes Losing Their Minds

A tattoo artist in Denver, Colorado, enraged a group of homophobic trolls on Friday when she posted a new piece of work depicting a male figure wearing a jockstrap and Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers’ football jersey.

Alisha Rice did not expect the backlash when she posted the photo on her Instagram ― but trolls were quick to emerge from the depths of the internet.

One user wrote, “What in tarnation is this gay ass sh*t? This is what y’all do up in Wisconsin? Don’t even look like his face and that helmet is severely f**ked. This some homo ass sh*t.”

Another added, “The gayest tattoo ever. I’m sure A rod don’t want this shit on anyone.” There are many, many other comments that can be viewed on the artist’s Instagram.

“The idea for the tattoo was a combination of the client wanting a traditional American style male pinup and a packers tattoo,” Rice, who has been tattooing since 1992, told The Huffington Post. She noted that the tattoo wasn’t necessarily supposed to be Rodgers and that his “particular jersey was selected because [he] is a football legend and the client admires him as a player and as a person.”

Two days after posting the initial image of the tattoo, the 43-year-old artist followed up with another post directly challenging the “homophobic football fans and armchair tattoo critiques” she had received: 

Rice told The Huffington Post the tattoo was never meant to be a comment on Rodgers’ sexuality, as some commenters charged, but instead was “just meant to be a fun, tongue in cheek ode to team.” 

She added, “If anyone has an issue with the tattoo I’d challenge them to ask themselves why and reflect on the apparent double standard regarding the sexualization of the male and female forms.”

Alisha Rice is tattoos at Think Tank Tattoo in Denver, Colorado. For more from her, check out her Instagram page here.

Cody Alan: Seeing A ‘Guy Like Me On TV Who Is Country And Gay’ Can Change Minds

Just under a week after coming out of the closet, Country Music Television (CMT) personality Cody Alan is opening up about his decision to share his sexuality with the world, and what he hopes his coming out will accomplish. 

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Alan reflected on the reality of knowing that he is gay his entire life while having to operate within the historically homophobic world of country music. He told the publication that he hopes minds can be changed by his decision to live authentically and visibly.

“From a professional standpoint, you do consider all the variables and you think about how other people would be affected by it,” Alan told Rolling Stone. “I realized that this could have a great, positive impact on many people who may be country music fans and may feel like they don’t fit in. But they see a guy like me on TV who is country and gay, and they recognize that there’s a place for you here, and that country music is a warm, welcoming space.”

Alan came out with the help of GLAAD on Jan. 12, telling the world that he is “happier and healthier” than ever. He later received an outpouring of support from others in the country music world. 

“When you have to reveal [yourself] to people you love [and] you don’t know what the consequences or their reaction will be, there’s a lot of heart in that, and a lot of prayer and love you have to have for yourself and for those you’re sharing with,” Alan continued. “There’s been some dark moments, but I’m happy to say that I do feel like I’ve reached the peak of a mountain here, and it’s all good.”

Thank you for continuing to be so outspoken, Cody!

Weekend Roundup: Connecting Minds Across Cultures

“Forty years of crisscrossing the planet has led me to suspect that the world isn’t growing smaller,” the inveterate traveler and literary journalist Pico Iyer laments. “If anything, the differences, the distances between us, are growing greater than they’ve ever been. In the Age of Information, many of us know less about other perspectives and other cultures than ever before.”

This week, the Berggruen Institute announced the launch of a philosophy and culture center that responds to this rift by connecting minds across borders through an exchange of scholars from East and West that will be hosted at prestigious universities from Cambridge and Harvard to Stanford and Tsinghua in Beijing. In order to promote foundational concepts for the future, the center will co-sponsor an ideas contest with the Aspen Institute as well as establish an annual $ 1 million Nobel-like prize for philosophy.

Behind this unique endeavor is the notion that what is least material most endures. Power wanes, buildings crumble and people die. But ideas, paradigms, worldviews and narratives live on. They shape the world by cultivating the soul, organizing the intellect and animating the will.

In our exponential technology series this week, neuroengineer Miguel Nicolelis tells us that “the brain is not a mechanism” but “an organism” that evolves. He worries that “if we keep relying so much on computers, we will begin to resemble our machines.” In our “Following Francis” series, Sébastien Maillard recounts from Rome how the pope went to a local shop himself to buy — and pay for — new lenses for his old glasses.

The saga of refugees trying to reach safe harbor in Europe continues. Rami, a 17-year-old refugee from Damascus, recounts his “escape to Germany” and the hurdles he faced along the way in Macedonia and Serbia. Mary D’Ambrosio humanizes the refugee influx with profiles of four individuals. Jonathan Portes says immigration can be good for economic growth in Europe if people are meaningfully integrated. From Munich, Sebastian Christ scores the new German policy this week of border controls as “voodoo politics” aimed at shoring up right-wing constituencies. Writing from Berlin, Alex Gorlach — a child of Turkish immigrants to Germany half a century ago — hopes the mistakes of integrating that Muslim population will not be repeated. Writing from Paris, Rokhaya Diallo calls on French leaders to live up to their rhetoric of universal human rights. Daniel Wordsworth, president and CEO of the American Refugee Committee, reminds us there are still 7.6 million refugees within Syria. In an interview, Oxford’s Alexander Betts spells out what we can learn from previous refugee crises in history.

World Reporter Nick Robins-Early reminds us of the brutal violence in Syria that is causing so many to flee their homeland, debunks the 5 major myths of Europe’s refugee and migrant crisis and describes a unique startup by three Columbia University graduates that connects Arabic learners with Syrian refugees.

In a series of photo essays, we look at the images Christopher Furlong has taken of what is left behind as refugees move on with their journey; World Reporter Charlotte Alfred presents unsettling images of the Hungarian border emptied of refugees and, in another report, we show satellite views of the impact of Hungary’s border crackdown. Christoph Asche of HuffPost Germany reports on the mounting crisis on the Serbia-Croatia border where refugees have now moved. Margarita Mavromichalis shows the “human face of refugees” on the streets of Athens.

Willa Frej stakes out the positions of the U.S. presidential candidates on the refugee crisis. Writing from Moscow, Georgy Bovt asks whether Vladimir Putin is seeking to exchange Syria for the Donbass region of Ukraine as his new international focus.

In an interview, former Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou worries that the large inflow of refugees combined with austerity policies will bolster the political fortunes of xenophobic parties like the Golden Dawn in this weekend’s election. European parliamentarian Gianni Pittella expresses the same worries. In another interview, To Potami leader Stavros Theodorakis says he hopes to be “the third pole” that can balance Greek politics. Writing from Istanbul, Behlul Ozkan sees a similar peril in Turkey as President Erdogan plays the Kurdish card to win nationalist votes in the upcoming election.

Writing from Tehran, Reyhaneh Tabatabaie describes the hopeful mood of the middle class in anticipation of the removal of economic sanctions. Seyed Hossein Mousavian, a former top Iranian official, calls on Republicans in the U.S. Congress to finally abandon militarism for diplomacy. Faysal Itani sees worrying signs of Iranian influence in Syria.

Sonia Maria Dias examines the vulnerable lives of women waste pickers in the developing world. Environmental scientist Johan Rockstrom describes how “Arctic tipping points” as a result of climate change will have ripple effects around the world. Bianca Jagger tells President Obama that he can’t both preserve the Arctic while allowing Shell to drill for oil there. Lydia O’Connor reports on a key summit of Chinese and U.S. mayors, governors and provincial leaders who met in Los Angeles to “tackle climate change from the bottom up.”

WorldPost China Correspondent Matt Sheehan reports on what 300,000 Chinese students studying in the U.S. are reading — the digital “College Daily” that combines hard news and lifestyle advice.

In this week’s “Forgotten Fact” we examine why the recent coup in Burkina Faso is a disaster for Africa.

Fusion this week look at the 10 cities in the U.S. where it’s especially difficult to scrape by on minimum wage. Finally, in our Singularity series, we look at the open source upside of “biohackers” and DIY amateur sciences.

Watch The Cast Of ‘Jane The Virgin’ Lose Their Minds Over Co-Star’s Pregnancy Announcement

Following up on their mega-viral proposal video, actor Justin Baldoni and his wife Emily shared a new video last week to announce another major milestone.

The “Jane The Virgin” star gathered various groups of loved ones to show them what he calls a “year in review” video. “I just wanted to give you guys all a gift thanking you guys for such an amazing year,” he tells the cast and crew of the hit CW show.

Filming their reactions, Baldoni presents each group of friends and family an ultrasound scene from “Jane the Virgin,” which suddenly cuts to a real-life video of the actor and his wife in the doctor’s office with their own sonogram.

Cue squeals of surprise, jumping up and down, group hugs, laughter, and a lot of waterworks. Though the end of the video shows the couple opening a gender-reveal envelope, it seems the couple has decided to keep that news to themselves for the time being.

Congratulations Justin and Emily!
