    RE: Brushing your teeth via the toilet.

    I’m on the side of the boyfriend/ “old perv” arrangement. Let the old guy, who probably is otherwise alone, be happy. Jeez.

    Utter trash. If he was being victimised, is there no equivalent of the EEOC or gay rights groups in Australia to help him reach a settlement with this company, in order to help ALL gays in the future? Instead of pulling a US Republican (using gayness or fear of homophobia as a cover for bad acts)?

    I hope he gets the maximum sentence. Unfortunately, because people are more scared of muggings on the street than muggings of the corporate variety, that max sentence will end up being of the Club Fed variety. Still, he needs to be punished and NOT allowed to use homophobia as an excuse.

    Damn, a commenter at the gawker piece on Harold Ford beat me to the “high yellow” comment.

    @Rodney-I think the boyfriend was alright with the toothbrush perv’s agreement. The issue now, though, is that he wants to move in with his boyfriend. In that scenario, the toothbrush perv has got to go.

    I see towleroad is very late at catching up on NYC things.The Guys behind that tacky “eden ballroom” idea with the Roxy building.Bailed on the idea.Meaning its not gonna happen.And Im glad.Either you reopen the Roxy as a real club under the same name,or dont reopen it AT ALL.It looks like its surely not gonna happen now.

    Re: toothbrush perv–I’m convinced, no matter how improbable this may be, that the college town is Princeton and the professor is Edmund White. That, to me, just makes sense.
