What is Sweden: Men with Balls

May 9, 2011

Sika from the animated comedy blog Lunki and Sika in a tan and a Sika t-shirtSure, we get our share of tourists. Every year people from all over the world visit Sweden in search of our many attractions. They might want to stay at that hotel made entirely out of ice in Jukkasjärvi or try to get a peek of the Swedish King at one of his castles.

But I think this year might be breaking all previous tourism records. According to British magazine Attitude, Sweden has the world’s only gay soccer player.

Anton Hysén, son of legendary Liverpool player and friend of this blog Glenn Hysén, is on the cover of the latest issue.

And we couldn’t be prouder.

I am of course a bit worried about writing about gays, because I don’t want to offend anyone or come off as prejudice. Like when I picked Kurt from Glee as one of the top ten most annoying TV characters in 2011, it was received as gay bashing and nothing else. In my defence, I was as surprised as anyone seeing him on that list. Who knew gays could be annoying? The rest of the list was all straight so at least they aren’t as annoying as them, but anyway.. I’ll stop before I’ve dug a hole here.

The only gay soccer player in the world? This summer will be crazy. Gay tourists will be pouring in to Sweden to see that. A young boy roaming the green field, playing with his balls.

Because we all know what gays like? Yes, travel.
