So many of you hate tattoos, but what if you hated tattoos and Hitler? Because here is a new gay porn star with some Hitler tattoos.
According to a poster named “Cowboy Bob” on this JustUsBoys forum (via MenOfPorn), the tattoos on a new Active Duty model named Axl (can I buy a vowel, Pat?) are those typically found on white supremacists. Cowboy Bob cites the Anti-Defamation League as his source, and he’s painstakingly gone through tattoo by tattoo to prove his point (and I thought I had no life).
According to Cowboy Bob and the ADL, Axl’s tattoos symbolize neo-Nazism, white pride, and prison time served after murdering a minority, while one even translates to the Nazi greeting, “Heil Hitler.” And if all that weren’t bad enough, these tattoos are really ugly.
14 = representing 14 words written by David Lane, “We must secure the existance of our people and a future for white children.
88 = The 8th letter of the alphabet being H. So 88 would be HH, for Heil Hitler.
Elbow Web = The traditional symbol used by all racists to indicate time served in jail.
Celtic Cross = Represents international white pride.
Ultimately, Cowboy Bob says he “can’t support” Active Duty’s “choice in models with this person,” which is understandable! Still, this little Nazi son of a bitch sure is cute, in a nerdy, third reich kind of way.
On the other hand, Active Duty founder Dink Flamingo has responded in the JUB thread, and says (basically) that young kids like Axl are just plain stupid, and they often get stupid tattoos without knowing what they mean:
I spent five days straight in the company of this young man and not once did I ever sense or see an angry or mean bone in his body. He was sweet, gentle and very caring. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I worked with a guy that had such a sweet and caring demeanor. He was childlike in his fascination with what he was doing and so very happy and intent on doing a good job. We spent a lot of time out in public during our time together and not once did I hear him make any mean-spirited or racist comments and I live in a very culturally diverse part of the country. He smiled and beamed with pure sweetness the entire time.
One thing I did learn about Axl, like so many of these young men, is that he had a very hard childhood. When we are young and impressionable we sometimes make decisions based on our environment that we otherwise wouldn’t have made. I’m not saying that this is the end all explanation for why he got the tattoos that he got, but I would bet money on the fact that he knew very little in retrospect about their true meaning.
The next time I speak to Axl, which should be soon, I’ll be sure to ask him what his tattoos mean to him. It is my thought that his answer will come with much naivety or regret or both.
I agree with Dink. Leave Axl alone! Unless…he really is a Nazi? This is his solo (he also has an all-white four way that just came out), and he doesn’t seem like a Nazi, does he??
Should Dink Flamingo pair Axl with a Jew for his next scene, as a “test”?
Which other gay porn stars do you think are white supremacists?
How should GLAAD respond to Axl’s tattoos?
Which is more offensive: Nazi porn or bareback porn?
Will you cancel your ActiveDuty.com membership immediately if it turns out that Axl is a Nazi, or will you just wait until your membership expires?
Should Dink Flamingo pay for Axl’s laser tattoo removal?
Have you “had it” with gay porn stars and their tattoos?
Was Hitler gay?
Is Axl gay?
