Gay gym rats: a staple of the queer community, known for sweating up a storm both in and out of the locker room. But according to incel influencer Nico de Balinthazy, aka Sneako, gay people and gyms don’t mix.
Sneako is known for his misogynistic and homophobic rhetoric. He’s popular on the Red Pill subreddit, a community for incels — meaning “involuntary celibate,” or people who think the world owes them sex and blame women for not getting any — where misogyny runs rampant.
There’s no wrong way to do fitness except by not showing up.
So it wasn’t surprising when Sneako took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to spew some homophobic vitriol.
Sneako posted a video of himself using a punching bag at the gym, captioned, “Would you rather see your kids at a 🌈 parade or in the gym?”
In Sneako’s world, going to the gym and attending Pride parades are apparently mutually exclusive. But, duh, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Plenty of gay people, especially gay men, are borderline obsessed with working out, and folks were quick to clown Sneako for his gross miscalculation.
You should probably go to pride so you can see what real muscles look like.— Kalen Allen (@TheKalenAllen) September 19, 2023

Imagine going to the pride parade, the circuit party, the after and still going to the gym in the morning😶🌫️— Subbottomboi (@subbottomboi2) September 19, 2023
And that’s not to mention that for someone who claims to represent gym goers, Sneako isn’t all that muscular, nor is his form on that punching bag particularly impressive. (There’s nothing wrong with Sneako’s body type, of course, but if you’re shilling homophobia in the name of “getting swole,” at least put your money where your mouth is.)
They say punching power comes from the legs, which explains why that bag ain’t moving— tim (@elchefe) September 19, 2023

It’s the second time Sneako’s gone viral this week for all the wrong reasons. While attending a Miami Marlins baseball game, a group of young fans came up to Sneako and forced him to face the way he’s corrupting his youngest viewers.
“F**k the women!” one child shouted, clearly seeking approval from Sneako.
“Wait, we love women!” Sneako responds.
“But not, like, transgenders,” the child says. His friends chime in, saying, “F**k gays,” and, “All gays should die.”
“What have I done?” Sneako says while laughing.
He later reposted the video to his own X account, somehow blaming the LGBTQ+ community for this display of homophobia.
“They are children and obviously joking. This is how I was at 12,” Sneako wrote. “But If it sounds egregious to you, blame the 🌈 flags in their classrooms. Blame the media for emasculating men. It’s YOUR fault for forcing an obvious agenda. Not these kids. BOYS WILL BE BOYS.”
Hopefully, getting read to filth all over the internet will help Sneako see the error of his ways — but it doesn’t seem likely.
