It feels weird to pick Terry Crews for the Pajiba 10, a list that is typically about all of our most debased and prurient desires. Because while he looks like he’s carved out of marble, the best reason to swoon over Terry Crews is his brave and unflinching discussion of his own sexual assault and his persistence in telling his truth in the face of mockery, dismissals, and the possibility of losing work. Not to mention his work with holding a light up to toxic masculinity. But there is still the fact that he looks like this:
With all due respect to The Rock, I’m pretty sure Terry Crews does the best pec pop in the business. And he’s willing to play with that ridiculously masculine image, which is an admirable mindset when you know he is definitely working very hard to look like that. But what’s the point of being that strong if you can’t do exactly what makes you happiest, like lip-synching Vanessa Carlton while ribbon dancing?
But Terry Crew’s true strength has been displayed this year, as he added his voice to the #MeToo movement and bravely shared the story of his own sexual assault and has kept sharing it, even going in front of Congress to speak about it. Which makes me feel a little icky for bringing him up in the context of the Pajiba 10. But there are many kinds of attraction, and many ways to express it, and I’m sure that all of us here would be willing to offer Mr.Crews whatever very consensual forms of affection we could. Since he’s been married for about 28 years, that’s likely a warm handshake or possibly a polite hug. That’d be enough for me.
