Report: Clay Aiken From “American Idol” May Run For Congress

Hollywood has a long and sometimes ignominious history of cross-pollinating in the political sphere. ┬áI mean, Arnold Schwarzenegger served for eight years as governor of California. Who the hell thought that would actually happen? So I guess it shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise that Clay Aiken, runner-up from the second season of “American Idol” who later became a gay icon for suburban moms everywhere, is allegedly considering a run for Congress in his home state of North Carolina. According to the Washington Blade, Clay will run as a Democrat and is seeking to challenge ┬áRepublican Representative Renee Elmers in the state’s second district. Clay has not only been a vocal supporter of marriage equality in his conservative home state but also appeared in “Spamalot” on Broadway. Which, frankly, should be a requirement of anyone considering a seat in Congress. [Huffington Post] [Image via WENN]

Which Celebs Should Asexuals Look Up To?

It’s like a word association game. Say the word “asexual” and the first thing people say is Clay Aiken. Poor Clay got stuck as the poster boy for asexuality when he told New York magazine that he had no libido.

“I just don’t have an interest in … any of that at all. I have got too much on my plate. I’d rather focus on one thing and do that when I can devote time to it, and right now, I just don’t have any desire. I think maybe I don’t [have sexual urges]! I mean, not really. I’ve just kind of shut it off, maybe. Is that bad?”

Now we know Clay is actually a gay man and the only thing he had “shut off” were his homosexual desires.

But with such confusing messages about asexuality, is it any wonder that “Awkward,” a 19-year-old woman who wrote to Professor Foxy, Feministing’s sex advice expert, was really confused by her complete lack of a libido? “Awkward” thinks she is asexual, but wondered how do you actually know?
