I really like frozen yogurt, but in a straight way. Pretty sure Zeus drinks more cosmopolitans than the ladies of Sex in the City, and Jason likes compact, weird looking dogs, but both of them are symbols of uncompromising masculinity. In fact, if there’s one feminine bone in the MiddleEasy monster’s body, it belongs to CatVonC – but just because it wears a high heel, it still packs a potty mouth that’d fit right in at a manly cigar party. Looks can be deceiving, and so can high-pitched voices like that of the UFC middleweight champion. Turns out, if you ever questioned his masculinity, you weren’t the first. In an interview with Tatame, Anderson Silva had the following to say about his upbringing and all the people who thought he was gay.
“A lot of people thought I was gay,”
“We would wear a dress, put on her shoes,” the UFC champion tells Tatame with admirable frankness.” And because I am very vain about my appearance, and have a high voice, a lot of people were sure I was gay.”
Fifteen years of marriage and five children later, Anderson Silva doesn’t pay much attention to people questioning his sexuality. That is, of course, unless you’re Chael Sonnen and you aren’t a fan of his pink sweater. It’s cool, you don’t have to think it’s manly. You don’t have to throw spinning backfists or eat your vegetables either. He’s not telling you how to live. He just wants to keep annihilating the middleweight division, all the way to the bank.
