Justin Theroux Explains His Flopping Package On “The Leftovers”

Screen-Shot-2014-08-25-at-1.55.53-PM-670x418Congratulations to Conan for digging in his heels and asking Justin Theroux the question that’s been on our minds since the premiere of HBO’s The Leftovers.

“There’s a scene where you’re jogging, and [women on my staff] say your package is quite apparent…and I guess it’s a thing that women are talking about…Was there enhancement going on there? Did you put a clock down there?”

Well Conan got it half right. Women may be talking about it, but so are we.

“I’m trying to figure out what the classy way to answer this question,” Justin begins. He stays fairly uncomfortable as he explains that in the second jogging scene — you know, this one — he found two pairs of underwear in his costume. Apparently producers were trying to keep things from moving around too much. Their plan was unsuccessful.

We have more questions for Jennifer Anniston at this point.

Here’s the clip:

I’m a senior GOP spokesman, and I’m gay. Let me get married.

James RichardsonThroughout my career I’ve publicly advocated for the freedom to marry, urging the party for which I work to allow gay men and women to wed even as I never openly disclosed my personal stake. I’ve preached the small-government virtues of equal marriage, echoing a conservative case that had been made many times before by thinkers more eloquent and far brighter than myself. Never once did I write that I am gay...

Back To School Nightmare: The Professor Who Thinks Being Gay Is Like Smoking Or Obesity

4966259“Why is it acceptable for insurance companies to discriminate against smokers and the obese but not homosexuals?” ponders Conservative columnist and professor Walter Williams in a recent article appropriately titled Things I don’t understand.

“[Being gay is] a lifestyle shortening of life expectancy greater than obesity and tobacco use,” Williams writes as his foot, unbeknownst to him, lodges itself deeper and deeper into his mouth. “Yet one never hears of insurance companies advertising lower premiums for heterosexual men.”

Williams cites a decades-old study as the backbone to his wildly stupid remarks. In the early ’90s, The International Journal of Epidemiology published findings that HIV reduced life expectancy of gay men by 8 to 20 years.

Antigay buffoons love to cite it despite the fact that the researches have acknowledged in recent years that modern medicine has improved drastically. They’ve also spoken publicly about their disappointment that it’s used as ammo for ill-informed haters.

Williams points out the researchers’ backpedaling, but wouldn’t you know it — he finds a way to lie about that too, claiming:

“The publication had to soft-pedal its study results because of complaints that pointing out life expectancy differences between heterosexuals and homosexuals had become fuel for homophobia.”

An assertion he bases on, well, nothing.

“The bottom line is that homosexuals have far greater political power and sympathy than smokers and the obese” he concludes.

Raw Story was first to comment on Williams’ steaming pile of word vomit, aptly pointing out:

“A more recent study by the Mailman School of Public Health found that LGBT people who lived in communities with high levels of anti-gay prejudice live an average of 12 years less than those who live in less prejudiced communities.

Another recent study found that conservative attitudes increased the risk of suicide for LGBT teens by 20 percent.

While smoking and even obesity can be eliminated through individual actions, Williams fails to note the mountains of scientific evidence against conversion therapy for LGBT people.”
