Scroll down the story and you'll see a small picture of him with Greenwald, r1.
Eh. I'm sure the child built some character before Daddy came in to save him.
And Glenn Greenwald is 46--literally old enough to be his father.
"Boytoy" fits perfectly.
dude, 46 / 28 is NOT creepy boytoy territory. i mean, i wouldn't personally date someone that age because the only thing we'd have in common would be sex, but for some, that's enough.
I agree. 28 is FAR too old to be a boytoy.
Good. I can't stand Greenwald with his Rand and Ron Paul libertarian-loving right wing ass. To hell with him, Assange and Snowden.
everybody knows that 25 is considered midlife in the gay world

Except they've been together since 2004. If 37/19 is NOT creepy boytoy territory, there's not much territory that is.
Bigger picture of the Brazilian partner at link. I think Greenwald looks ok in OP's link, but he looks truly unattractive in this pic -
I do Glenn, he's not so bad. The boyfriend is taller and better looking than I'd imagined.
Best wishes to this courageous couple.
Greenwald is very likely a sociopath. He has dead eyes, like Simon Halls.
[quote]dude, 46 / 28 is NOT creepy boytoy territory.
No, but 19/38 is, which was their ages when they met. Greenwald was literally twice his age. Add the fact that the boy toy didn't speak English and Greenwald didn't speak Portuguese, they're from vastly different sicial classes with vastly different education levels, they met "on the beach" and they moved in together within a week (still not speaking/understanding each others languages) and the whole thing is clearly a prostitution arrangement. Now that his boy toy is getting older Greenwald gets more bang for his buck by using him as a document smuggler. Yes, that's true love: putting your "partner" in danger for the benefit of your "work".
Greenwald is sleazy.
Plus I doubt if he could get away with 'dating' a teenage Hispanic in America,r15. Reminds me of those white tourists who travel to Thailand for fresh 'chicken'
His boyfriend is ugly for a Brazilian.
Well Greenwald is ugly for an American. At least their looks are on the same level.
Agreed, R17. They're actually well-matched in terms of looks - when the Brazilian is older, he will look as rough as Greenwald.
Did anyone see the exclusive interview with Glenn Greenwald and David Miranda on AC360? David Miranda seemed like the son of Frankenstein when Anderson Cooper asked him a question, who could barely form an intelligible answer "Aye wuz happy to be back in country with my husbahnn". Conversely, Glenn Greenwald was like a blubbering sputtering idiot who wouldn't stop shouting in reply to AC's questions, "Civil liberties! Free press! Intimidation! Retaliation! Etc, Etc." My favorite part was, following the exclusive interview, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin basically said David Miranda was Glenn Greenwald's information mule, akin to a drug mule. Way to have a marriage of equals.
These guys are the most mismatched couple since Nick Gruber and Calvin Klein.
Jeffrey Toobin is an idiot, R20. The fact that you agree with him is sad.
[quote]...when the Brazilian is older, he will look as rough as Greenwald.
Worse. Most Brazilian men enter some pupal stage around 35 and come out on the other side terrifyingly troll-like.
Why do you consider Toobin an idiot, R21? I don't watch CNN and my only exposure to him is through his book The Nine about the Supreme Court justices.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
