  1. I agree with Art. And the hypocrisy of the gay community is not lost on me.

    Speaking of hypocrisy...I guess tolerance only goes one way, eh? (And it ain't Art's way.)

  2. This has been an interesting conversation on open relationships. When Dan Savages's open relationship comes up, there is not infrequently a fair amount of negative feedback.

    FWIW: I don'r rhink rhere's been enough public info about Cooper and Maisani to make any determination.

    @Jon: Perhaps because the right hand was the traditional gay marriage hand.

  3. I can't help it, I find NPH and his partner (I don't think they are married yet?) terribly adorable. They seem like such normal, fun guys, who don't take themselves too seriously. I wish them all the best!

  4. Good for those in open relationships! Pursue your own happiness and what works for you.

  5. Gay men can be in any type of relationship they want. You older, biter, conservative (and probably religious) types need to join your ex gay conversion program already. We don't want you part of our community, much less schooling us on it. Eff off.

  6. Same sex couples don't need to model a heteronormative pattern for their relationships. Most hetero monogamous marriages end in nasty, ugly divorce anyways. Same sex couples are entitled to work out their relationships as they desire. Keep your judgment to yourself and figure out what's boring you in your existence to comment on someone else's life.

  7. @ Jack
    Yes, when dealing with you bigoted conservative trolls with your cliche "tolerance only goes one way" yes, while yes indeed it does. We'll never be tolerant of the intolerant like yourself. Please do get comfortable with that fact.

  8. If an open relationship works for some people, who the hell is anyone else outside that relationship to comment on it? Some gay men just lie to comment on other gay men's morality because it makes them feel more superior and hetero approved. Focus on your own livelihood Art/Rick.

  9. Focus on your own miserable life and lack of love instead of worrying about the dynamic of how and why someone is in an open relationship or any kind of relationship that works for them. If you were getting laid frequently, you wouldn't care so much. Go do something.

  10. @ Rey
    Open conversations about why other people are perfectly happy and content in their open relationships as grown adults? In 2013? No. Learn to respect that what works for you doesn't work for others. No open conversation necessary.

  11. My partner/common-law husband/best friend/not legally married in any state yet & I will be celebrating our 34th anniversary in about a week. Some people have asked us to divulge the secret to the longevity of our relationship. That answer has changed about as often as the rules of our home. We have been monogamous and we have also been non-monogamous. We have allowed our union to change in order to accommodate the changes in ourselves. If you enter into a relationship with such hard and fast rules that don't permit flexibility, you are likely doomed to be still booking gay cruises when you're 60 hoping to find Prince Charming in heels. The only firm rules we've ever had is to always keep honest communication lines open between us, and to never tell each other any important lies (little ones like the answer to 'do these pants make my butt look good?' don't count).

  12. I'm overdosing on egomaniac Neil and his "Plastic Pat" husband. That talk show gay has proven herself to be a breast hungry cliche with those Katy Perry pictures. Unfortunately Anderson waited too long to come out, so I only see an overexposed coward. Violet sends her one liner love!

  14. This is what happens when you photograph a comedian compared to a "serious journalist"

  15. Soooooo tired of NPH and his no-talent husband.

  16. Love Niel Patrick Harris and his husband. They are so enjoyable, real, and seem genuine. Huge fans of theirs.

  17. I'm loving seeing Niel Patrick Harris consistently working and being so talented. Loved seeing him at the Grammys, and think he's such a natural on camera. Thankful we have people like him in our community.

  18. Anderson, and NPH are so freakin adorable.

    Really appreciate how open and honest they are about themselves.

  19. I love both these couples, but then again, I find virtually all gay male couples really cute and charming in a sense.

  20. I liked Truman Capote and that guy in jail for murder who was later executed from "In Cold Blood".
