Jersey Shore boys featured on Village Voice’s Queer Issue

Somehow, Christophe always knows the latest story. Apparently the self-obsessed Jersey Shore boys posed shirtless and oiled for the Village Voice. And this New York weekly did not tell them that they would be the illustration for “The Guido Ideal” of their annual Queer Issue. This early photo comes from Autostraddle, who critique the Village Voice for using these emblems of retarded heterosexuality as queer icons.

BTW, I heard that MTV wants to export Jersey Shore to over 30 countries. Have you seen this subculture, brand offensive in your (non-US) nation?!

  1. I’ve heard of Jersey boys but know nothing about it.

    Btw I really want to know about the “Grannies bust up car swindle” story on the cover!

  2. It has been shown in Japan MTV. The Japanese title is “Macaroni Bastards.” “Jersey Shore” has no cultural reference to Japanese audiences.

    I thought that many gays in the US are secretly (or openly and shamelessly) admiring those “bastards.” Am I wrong?
