  1. Those jeans are SO 90's.

  2. He used to be much more attractive. This prissy queen look doesn't suit him at all.

  3. He's quite a handsome drag queen.

  4. wow, what thoughtful comments guys... shallow, bitchy and irrelevant...

  5. Because this photo called for a discussion of Eastern philosophy and the intricacies of quantum mechanics?

  6. David D

    These photos do call for a discussion of chaos theory.

    The middle one in particular with him flipping up his collar = the movment causes small air currents - cause dust to flow about - a dust particle flies up the photograpoher's nose - photog sneezes - sneeze snot juice splatters on neck of lighting guy - lighting guy flinches - flinching lighting guy knocks over another person - falling person hits head on a table - collapsing table knocks over a fan - knocked over fan causes bigger air currents -----------

    anyway eventually you have a hurricane sweeping across florida



    quantum mechanics

    Take the same collar flipping in the middle pic and the quanta of meyers and the clothes and the light and the air all transmitting quantum information to the quanta that made up the primordial ooze from which we sprang and mid pic actually created all life on earth (euro scientists have already shown quanta affecting other quanta PRE!!!!!! the experiment despite intervening space and time)

  7. Those sneakers are hideous even Punky Brewster would refuse them.

  8. What a bunch of retarded-wanna-bees . No wonder the gay movement has come to a full halt with all these faggy-assed girly-girls around. You are the type that drags us down.

  9. David D - LOL. I have to admit, the first thing that came to mind when I saw the photos was to wonder how the global financial crisis is affecting newly formed democracies, but then I saw those eyebrows and I decided to be bitchy and irrelevant.

  10. Fugly shoes.

  11. HA HA HA!

  12. JJ: I save my musings on the effect of the financial crisis on developing countries for photos of Jessica Simpson. Something about her just screams "microlending".

    Ashlee on the other hand just reminds me that money in all its aspects is just a social construct that--now more than ever--inaccurately reflects the true value of that which it "purchases" to the advantage of the Western world and to the disadvantage of the rest.

  13. Taylor, I agree. Sure, make comments, it's all good. However, over and over again the commentary gets bitchier and bitchier, and very tired. The tipping point was all the nasty comments about Kanye West's diction in an interview in which he stands up for the gay community. No wonder the LGBT community has had so many losses, maybe it's karma, or maybe the general attitude by some has been the last straw for so many. At some point you have to grow up guys.

  14. These ads are SO much better than those dumbass D&G ads that seem to be the prequel to some fashionista gang bang.

  15. You're reading a blog post about a celebrity in a new ad campaign for clothing, and you're bitching about the commenters dragging down the gay movement?

    Posted by: adg3825 | Feb 12, 2009 12:24:31 PM

  16. ADG, it's not just this post, if you reread my comment, I referred to other posts in which this occurs. It's a very common occurrence, that usually results in personal attacks on each other. Just an observation.

    Posted by: cj | Feb 12, 2009 12:33:58 PM

  17. I was dragging down the gay movement before some of these people were born.

  18. As much as I'd like to enter into this grand discussion witha comment full of merit and indignation -- I feel the photos of Mr. Rhys-Meyers can be summed up with one word:

  19. Pretty And Shiny!

  20. Whatever, he looks great. The Tudors is probably some of his best work because he's managed to somehow channel his overdone, twitchy, boyishness into something relatively consistent. I like it.

    Why do people think the "gay movement" is constantly in this state of fragile collapse that is always hinging on whether gay people say things that are bitchy or about the surface? It's like a predictable mechanism. One gay person makes a bitchy comment and then anothers get all resentful that everyone isn't a high profile philosopher. It's so dated and bitter.

  21. Ugh, guys, chill. The comments made by me and a few others aren't just for this post. I've been reading Towleroad (and many other blogs) for a few years now. It was a general observation. More over, it's not just blogs but in general LGBT culture, being queeny, sarcastic and bitchy is tired. Andy posts a picture of a celebrity, and all of a sudden people just tear them apart. Then the comments almost always go into each other. Almost every post this happens, from Kayne West to the pastry chef in the West Village showing racist Obama cookies, to even this article. For an LGBT community blog, I've read very little comments that actual are nice to others and each other. As a marginalized and dehumanized group, we're very quick in treating other the same.

    Now, flame away, I'm sure I set myself up.

  22. Eww, he is scary with those crazy eyes...

    Posted by: Critifur | Feb 12, 2009 4:46:37 PM

  23. Damn you CJ! You body checked the abusive comments aimed your way!

    Damn You!

  24. He's beautiful

    Posted by: JH | Feb 12, 2009 10:54:46 PM

  25. CJ,

    i get your drifteroo. apparently, some commenters on this blog mistake bitchiness and vapid vitriol for 'class', and casting aspersions like a skunk spews stench as being 'cutting edge' or 'uber-hip'.

    they should be advised that building up is much more difficult (and noble) than tearing down, and that hating everything makes them neither clever nor intelligent.
