Stone Cold Steve Austin, in addition to having the most bad ass intro music ever, is perhaps the most stereotypically masculine and heterosexual person on this glorious planet. Cold beer, bar fights and women are what this dude literally lives for. Like, he actually made a career out of his obsession with all three.
The only thing that could make “The Toughest SOB” more stereotypical would be a homophobic tendency.. Yet, that’s where Stone Cold breaks the mold. In a recent podcast he gave probably the most verbally profane statement of support for gay marriage that has ever been given.
“Okay, so two cats can’t get married if they want to get married, but then a guy can go murder fourteen people, molest five kids, then go to fucking prison, and accept God and He’s going to let him into heaven? After the fact that he did all that shit? See that’s all horseshit to me, that don’t jive with me.”
And that’s the bottom line. Cuz Stone Cold said so.
PS. Gotta love the use of “cats” and “jive”. It’s like this podcast was recorded 40 years ago.
