  1. Never liked his trachea? I need a drink.

  2. I just finished having an uncontrollable fit of laughter. When I looked at that picture of Bruce Jenner, I literally jolted in my seat, gasped, and then said out loud "holy f*ck", without even realizing it. I can't.

  3. Bruce Jenner shaving off his Adam's Apple... I believe that is called the Coulter Procedure.

  4. Susan Saradon should have played Bette Davis in a biopic twenty years ago. She resembles her so, and both were/are great screen actresses.

    @ CRISPY,

    amazing. We're always on the same page. I too was thinking of Ann Coulter with that horse throat of hers.

    If Jenner is making a transition then more power to Jenner. Why not salvage your life before it ends. Let's have a drink.

  5. What a shame if Jenner turns out to be a tranny. If he is a tranny, then it is telling that he is more willing to say to the press that he had part of a healthy organ cut away on a whim than to admit that he is a tranny. In other words, you come off as less crazy to pay to have your throat sliced open for no reason than if you are a budding transgender.

    Clearly, the trans community has a big PR problem. Maybe they should rethink their psychotic rage and endless hatred toward society and particularly towards LGB people.

  6. Miss Jenner clearly looks like a woman already.

  7. It's disappointing to see celebrities embracing (or claiming to embrace) sexist feminism, when there is a fledgling gender egalitarian movement that seeks to eliminate sexism across the board, for men, women, and others. Hopefully Cyrus and Gaga will wake up to it. And in Cyrus' case, yes, a nipple is just a nipple. In the summer of 2014, women shouldn't have to cover up. I haven't crashed my car yet due to hot shirtless guys (and there were many in my town this year) and I expect no less self-control of straight men.

  8. wow...wouldn't it be something if Nicodemo's team could win a city-wide championshop.

    It'd be a great screenplay.

  9. What a shame that people like Matthew are proud of their transphobia. Grow up and stop being such a close-minded little prick

  10. We need more people like Coach Anthony Nicodemo. What a great story.

    Posted by: Brian in Texas | Dec 13, 2013 6:02:25 PM


  11. Jenner clearly lost it ages ago. Plastic surgery, fine. But he gets mocked every day for it. Enough.

  12. Cheers: Coach Anthony Nicodem

    Jeers: Transphobia

    Sad thing about the Jenner thing is, I've know a lot of folks who were MTF (not transvestites but actual transsexuals) and so many of them were REALLY MANLY MEN before their transition. It would be very, very interesting to see someone who started out looking like Bruce did before to be a lady as an older person.

  13. Do your thang, Brucie.

    No.

    Next question.

  15. Also, for reasons unclear I clicked on the listing for the LA house. Whoever chose that furniture clearly also really likes urine.

  20. I'm confused. Tell me again why the good LGBT people of Towleroad are bullying Bruce Jenner for supposedly planning a gender transformation? Is the T in the acronym just there for show?
