When speaking with The Advocate recently, Pete Wentz kind of, sort of won me over. I honestly had never heard of him until pictures of his dong showed up on the Internet and then just assumed he was your run-of-the-mill annoying emo kid pretending to be sensitive, while boinking as many girls as humanly possible to make up for his “tortured” high-school years. And maybe he is, but at least he’s not homophobic.
You’ve also said that people who aren’t a fan of yours will sometimes call you an antigay slur. Why is that?
I don’t know. I think it’s a real cheap, easy word. In high school it bothered me a lot when it got yelled at me and stuff, but it’s completely unoffensive to me now–it doesn’t hurt. But when I think about my friends who are gay and that it does bother them, that’s when it bums me out.
He also goes on to say that “Fall Out Boy” has a song on import versions of their “Infinity on High” album entitled, “Gay Isn’t a Synonym for the Word ‘Shitty”” and that might have been the tipping point for me.
Any friend of the gays is a friend of mine.

More excerpts from his interview with The Advocate:
You made a lot of gay fans happy when you admitted that you’d kissed boys because “anything above the waist is fair game.”
[Laughs] I actually mean it. That’s just kind of how I am. I’m a little bit of a make-out king. I don’t discriminate too much.
Do make-out opportunities present themselves often?
Not really, because the traits that I find attractive in people are so bizarre. Like, you have to be really pretty, but you also have to have a brain. Those two often don’t go hand in hand.
What’s the closest you’ve ever come to taking the boy-on-boy action to the next level?
I haven’t really ever gotten that close, ’cause honestly, I’m not a real big fan of penises. Like my own, whenever I look at it, I just don’t find anything attractive about it. I can’t believe girls are into it. It blows my mind a little bit. So that’s the biggest problem. I’d love to share clothes with a dude and have all those benefits, but I just can’t get past that thing. It’s just weird-lookin’.
Penises aside, any dude crushes?
I don’t have an issue finding guys attractive. I was with my friend last night watching The Prestige and she’s like, “Christian Bale is so hot.” And I’m like, “Yeah, that’s a good-looking dude.” There’s nobody specific, but if you just named off dudes I could tell you if I thought they were hot or not.
