Obviously, we love us some Channing Tatum — check out our slideshow of his top 15 shirtless scenes — but even our adoration can't match that of "gold star" lesbian Erika Star, who has recently found herself defending her sexual preferences to her peers in light of her "pop culture life choices, namely Magic Mike."
"I’m going to go right out there and say it: Channing Tatum is a rhythmic god," she writes for The Frisky. "And, sure, maybe my seeing a movie about male strippers multiple times seems a little suspect, seeing as the audience was predominately straight women acting as though they were at the bachelorette party of their lives. I will tell you that I found my jaw on the ground through the majority of the movie. So what?"
Not that Star necessarily wants to sleep with the "Sexiest Man Alive," which is probably the main difference between her and our infatuation. She explains: "My Channing love is nothing more than a joke and a cultural idolization of someone who happens to be the fixture of many a straight girl’s fantasy. Just like I don’t actually think Justin Bieber is a closeted lesbian, so are my quips about Channing and our future together. Lesbianism doesn’t mean I can’t embrace a love of our male counterparts... I can embrace both my femininity, being gay and my love of Channing Tatum’s fine body of work all at the same time."
You go, girl. And there's certainly enough of him to go around for all of us.
