I've seen one viciously homophobic Republican elected official after another get caught red handed or something with boys and men and one thing all the perps have in common is that they all claim they're "not gay. All of these men have been vociferous in denying their own sexual natures and each has voted against the interests of other gay men and women in a way that endangers regular American citizens trying to get on raising families and living their lives. Homosexuality has not made any of them more empathetic; quite the contrary.

State Rep. The paper reported that Curtis is accused of engaging in the sex act with Cody M. He also told police that he thought he might have been given some type of drug because his memory of the evening was hazy.
He knows precisely what he wants us to feel. That, for me, is a sign of true love — and the tremendous pulling power of the Curtis romcom. His best films — Four Weddings, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones Curtis co-wrote the screenplays — are as comforting as a fairy tale, and take no chances with our emotions: he knows precisely what he wants us to feel and how to make us feel it.
Richard Curtis did the right thing — and far quick than we imagined. The disgraced Republican politico resigned today and released the following statement:. Today I submitted my letter of resignation to Gov.
