  2. The link for "Bob Kraft's girlfriend can't act" takes you the Bear-Mitzvah story.

  3. C'mon Belonsky -- do you even proofread your work? It's Men's JOURNAL, not Men's Health. All you had to do was look at the picture.

  4. Can't wait the Olympics to begin and all those hot guys on top form to win. If Olympics aren't homoerotic...

  5. a) Can any man--even the "straightest"--seriously look at a cover photo like that of Ryan Lochte and not think all kinds of nasty thoughts? Seriously, is it humanly possible?

    b) Please, all of you that are under the age of 50, read the article about how gay men were blackmailed in the 60's.....and next time you feel like congratulating yourselves on how "courageous" you are for being "out" in 2012 and feel inclined to sit in judgment of someone who is 30-40 years older than you, consider that your elders know what REAL oppression and fear are--something that you have never had to experience because of the courage my generation and the one just before it demonstrated by being the first in history to stand up for themselves and fight back.....which is the only reason it is possible for you to be so free today......You are welcome.

  6. ralph reed w Jack abramoff perpetrated fraud & what can only be termed a shake down operation that would make the mafia proud

    He is still under investigation! by federal and state grand juries and by the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs.

    bring it reed....perp walking...one wonders what evidence Jack Abramoff gave to the FBI in return for his having to serve 3 years

  7. Rick, yes, they can ignore Ryan. That's why they are straight! Just as I can look at a playmate with enormous tits and find her about as much a turn on as an upholstered side chair. If I had to jack off on the side chair, I suppose I could (c.f., Ted Haggard and his biological offspring, Suri Cruise)

    Agree about your second point though.

  8. Chloe Sevigny is playing a transgender hit WOMAN. Real sensitive.

  9. Why would a pastor accuse someone of a sham marriage unless he thought it was true?? Bizarre.

    Oh, and Ralph Reed is in need of money again.

  10. Why is Britney Spears commenting on the talents of others ? She is the LEAST talented famous person ever. Her voice is weak, she can no longer dance and most of the time she doesn't even attempt to sing live. She's a total loser !

  16. Ralph Reed needs to 1) come out of his closet and 2) encourage Kirk Cameron to come out of HIS closet so they can get married, shut up and go away.

    Posted by: jomicur | Jul 12, 2012 9:33:57 AM

  17. May Ralph Reed fall smack-dab on his corrupt, hypocritical face. Now I KNOW our enemies are in trouble if they're resurrecting that execrable man-child to aid their efforts to unseat Pres. Obama.

    Sorry, Ralph. You're gonna fail. Again.

    Oh, and not a wise career move, either. You're still under investigation and the media will stick some very truthful knives into your cowardly back.

    Don't flinch. You deserve them.
