HOMOPHOBE ALERT! Model Ben Massing is suing Genre magazine and photographer Rick Day for "cruel and vulgar" images of Massing that appeared in Genre magazine's March/April issue. Despite the fact that Massing took the gig with Day - posing suggestively and tugging at his barely there underwear - he says the images have garnered him unwanted gay attention and solicitations for homosexual sex. Massing states he posed free for Day and only wanted the pictures for his portfolio - never expecting the images to wind up in a gay magazine where he'd appear 'lustful and sexually promiscuous."
"He's not [gay]," said lawyer Liah Catanese. "He had a promising career. I hope he's able to undo any damage that this has done."
'Had" a career? I suppose appearing in sexually-charged Abercrombie & Fitch ads or in Playboy's spread on dapper college men did nothing to hurt his career? And you call these photos "vulgar?" What a joke!
