FarrowRoadVICE: Does it matter that Ronan Farrow is gay? "Gay readers deserve to be titillated, too. As a gay man, I find Farrow's sexuality highly relevant—he's literally the gay Mia Farrow! It’s only by accepting a homophobic logic that we can perform the mental acrobatics required to decide sexuality should be off the table. It’s just as interesting as any other detail, and no more embarrassing."

  1. Ronan Farrow gets his good looks from his father...."Strangers in the night..."

    Actually, Mama June does look like Kim Kardashian. (you know I could never spell "Kardashian" but I've seen so many times that...

  2. ""The behind-the-scenes effort is being led largely by GOP mega-donor Paul Singer, a hedge fund executive whose son is gay,..."

    His son might be gay and Mr. Singer might be "on our side" on this issue; but, the guy is also known as The Vulture by people internationally. Put 'Paul Singer vulture Congo" into a search engine and see what comes up. Or Elliott Asset Management.

  3. Ronan's PR guy is working overtime and the Honey Boo Boo clan is just revolting. Are they all pregnant?

  7. "surprised to discover how bookish, frugal, and un-diva-like she was,"

    Yeah, that's why she's so factual, unhysterical, and dresses like a farmer. I guess, compared to that Ursula The Sea Witch husband/wife, Marcus, she probably is.

  8. Ronan Farrow is wearing so much makeup that he's approaching drag queen territory.

    Andrew Sullivan is made for DC. It's a horrible place, so he fits right in.

  9. Who the hell cares if the Farrow spawn is gay?

  10. Yes, we do seem to be reading an awful lot about Ronan's brilliance lately. Is he up for an Ambassadorship or contemplating a run for the Senate? And refresh my memory, exactly who is Andrew Sullivan?

  11. @OLYMPIASEPIRIOT: Thanks for the info. Very important stuff about Mr. Singer, who may have a gay son but do not let his supposed "move to the middle" deceive anyone. The man is a predatory capitalist and as file as they come.

    And, let us never ever forget that the faux-contrite Ken Mehlman hung us ALL out to dry in the 2000, 2002, and 2006 elections by employing a hateful and divisive campaign to make LGBTQ people as vile and threatening as possible to the execrable GOP base of evangelical scumbags in order to win elections for Karl Rove and George W. Bush.

    If those two are what passes for GOP moderates, then the Republican Party is beyond hopeless and needs to be kicked to the trashcan of American history once and for all.

    With friends like those two self-aggrandizing reprobates, who needs enemies?
