Patrick Schwarzenegger: Born This Way

This hunky teenager engaging in homoerotic horseplay in the surf is Patrick Schwarzenegger, 19-year old son of Governor Arnold.  But he has several claims to fame other than being hunky and the son of the Terminator.

When he was 15, he started his own clothing line, Project360.  The clothes feature messages like "Love," "Peace," and "Freedom," and some of the proceeds go to charity.

Patrick also has a modeling career -- usually involving shirtless shots -- and he's appeared in a few movies.

The questions on everyone's mind:

1. Is he gay?

He hasn't made any public statements about his sexual identity, but he does spend a lot of time with muscular male buddies, such as Taylor Lautner of the Twilight Saga, who has been the subject of gay rumors.  On the other hand, he's been photographed kissing girls, too.

2. Is he gay-positive, or like his "gay marriage should be between a man and a woman" dad?

In May the gossip site TMZ reported that Patrick was booted from a nightclub and then threatened to beat up the dj, using the expression "gay boy."

But he has recorded an anti-bullying PSA for Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, encouraging kids to "be who they are."  I'm thinking that overrules the "gay boy" comment.
