If you recall, In 2014 I posted about Justin Theroux, from the TV show Leftovers, with regard to a scene in the show where he was jogging in very loose sweatpants...with what appeared to be no athletic support whatsoever. His junk was bouncing around, in every direction. The sweatpants were loose.
That scene took off on the Internet and gave Justin Theroux tons of free publicity. Most of what I read...including my own post...was positive publicity.
Fast forward to 2016. Here's Theroux's take on what happened back then.
Now, in a new interview with Elle, he’s finally opening up at length about the incident that helped transform him into more than just Mr. Jennifer Aniston.
“It’s like having someone yank your shorts down in public,” he says. “It doesn’t feel great. Anyone who has an unflattering picture taken of them would probably say, ‘Join the club’.”
Even though most people spoke positively about Theroux’s package, he says he still cringed.
“It has the appearance of a compliment,” he says, “but it’s more mortifying than anything else.”
I can't speak for Theroux, however, I am a runner. I have been running every single morning, in all four seasons, rain or shine, since I was in college. And when I go out to run in the morning I make sure I'm wearing support, and sweatpants or shorts that are discreet enough to keep my junk from bouncing in every direction possible. That's all. Men who run know the importance of this. Men who wear sweatpants know this. It's what you do.

Married Conservative Politician Sexting Teen Boy
According to this next article, some married conservative politician was allegedly caught sexting a teen boy. The boy did happen to be of the age of legal consent. But the author of the article fails to mention whether the politician is married to a man or a woman.
Evidently, the author thinks we'll all assume he's married to a woman, because that's how we've been trained to think. In some cases I don't think it needs to be distinguished, but in others I think it's relative to the story.
According to his Twitter profile, Republican Mike Yenni is “the President of Jefferson Parish and happily married with one daughter.” But according to the several unnamed sources, he’s a closet case who has been sending some rather racy texts to a teen boy he met at a Catholic high school function while on the campaign trail last year.
Here's the rest. The comments really attack the article itself with this one...for a variety of reasons...as well they should.
Alabama Justice Defies Gay Marriage Laws
This next article is why I'm starting to prefer my LGBT news from more professional mainstream sources. I didn't see this headlining in any gay presses, and I think it's highly significant. I'm not saying we have to stop all clickbait. I like clickbait sometimes, too. But at least give a balance.
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was removed from the bench Friday for defying the U.S. Supreme Court on gay marriage, more than a decade after he was ousted for disobeying a federal order to take down a 2 ½-ton monument to the Ten Commandments.
You can read it in full here. This judge has a history of defiance.
