Overnight Engine Starter: ‘The Frisky’ Columnist Says Tim Tebow Can’t Be ‘Hot’ Because He’s Pro-Life

tebow_041911BuzzMedia.com bills itself as “pop culture amplified.” It recently acquired a former Turner Broadcasting site called “The Frisky.”

BuzzMedia’s press release announcing the acquisition said that “The Frisky has struck a major chord with female audiences for its authentic voice and fierce sense of humor.”

Last Tuesday, The Frisky “Guys” section contributor and Julie Gerstein, whose occupation per her profile is Style Editor, criticized another web site’s 25 Hot Guys under 25 list. You see, Ms. Gerstein fiercely believes that Crushable.com’s Number 13, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, should not have been on the list because — and only because – he is pro-life:

But I draw the line at hardcore pro-lifers. I refuse to date a guy who doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose because I essentially view that as someone who believes women are too stupid to make decisions for themselves. So when Crushable’s very linkbait-y list of 25 crushworthy guys under 25 included Mr. Tim Tebow, I had to laugh. Sure, Mr. Tebow has a handsome enough mug, if you’re into broad shouldered football players. But Tebow has one major problem in my book: he’s openly and loudly very anti-choice, to the tune of taking out an ad during the Super Bowl in order to share his pro-life views with the world.

… Luckily, their other 24 picks are decidedly less lame.

Well, Justin Bieber, who is Number 2 on Crushable’s list, is also strongly pro-life, telling a Rolling Stone interviewer in February that “I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s like killing a baby?” (Yes, the question mark is in the original.) Elaborating further, Bieber says the following in a corrected Rolling Stone transcript in response to a question about cases of rape and incest: “I don’t know how that would be a reason.”

Just don’t tell Julie Gerstein, okay?
