David Beckham Is The Real Sexiest Man Alive

More than 1,000 readers of Heat magazine – which I’ve never heard of but assume is an anti-air conditioning publication – have decided that People magazine is full of doodies, for lack of a more mature term. Three months ago, People declared that actor Bradley Cooper was the Sexiest Man Alive, which infuriated a legion of fans devoted to actor Ryan Gosling and his attractiveness. Thankfully, someone is pointing out that it’s all a load of mung.

For starters, I’m tired of bloggers being excluded from these lists. We’re sexy people, too, dammit. But more importantly, it’s time that athletes started getting some attention over these namby-pamby actors, and the readers of Heat agree. They’ve declared that David Beckham is the sexiest man in the world, and everyone else is just his trash.

Yeah, suck it, Hollywood. Beckham is a MLS champion and a worldwide star. Sure, his voice might have the ability to grate cheese, but he’s certainly cooler and more successful than Gosling, despite whatever that goober who’s covering FilmDrunk today might think.

But more than anything, I wish we could just put an end to the sexism in journalism and do away with this blatant preferential treatment to males. Why can’t it be the Sexiest Person in the World? Obviously that would make it Kate Upton and she’d win every year until gravity takes over.

In case you needed any more proof, and because we always love to flash a little something for the ladies, here’s Beckham’s new commercial for his H&M underwear line.
