With his provocative columns and scathing political commentary, the journalist has never shied away from controversy. We step into his complicated world.%0D %0D

not. hot.

by Anonymousreply 104/19/2011

What's so surprising about a fugly 38 year old lawyer who wines and dines a 19 year old street kid? The only surprising thing about that story is that Greenwald admitted he's a fucking creep.

Glenn isn't hot, but his partner is.

Glenn is hot as hell (the brain is my favorite organ) and his bf isn't bad. Great article. Now, why didn't Out put that on the cover instead of their dumb, racist Power Gay crap?

by Anonymousreply 604/19/2011

I think they're adorable. He admits that there's a huge age difference, they both work at it, and they seem to genuinely love each other. Greenwald is a passionately committed lefty who is smart as hell. Unless you've got a needlepoint portrait of Karl Rove hanging over your bed, what's not to like?

Sorry I'm skeptical that an accomplished lawyer has anything in common with a piece of Brazilian street trash other than he has money and the kid doesn't. Sometimes I forget that DL expects us to follow the same playbook, otherwise we're accused of being freepers / Anti-Semitic (wtf???!), or worse. Carry on.

"He prevents me from getting old, cranky, set in my ways, stagnant, and unspontaneous, and I keep him focused on career, future, responsibilities, and avoiding at least some of the bad mistakes of youth. It translates into this: I end up playing video games with a bunch of 23-year-olds until 3 a.m., and he ends up reading the Nietzsche I give him. Being young and from Rio, he%E2%80%99s still way ahead of me in the hedonism department. But I%E2%80%99ve been learning to give up control and be more spontaneous%E2%80%94something you can only do if you have absolute trust in the other person."

Translation: His life inexperience allows me to dictate certain terms in the relationship. For one, I condescend to him and he accepts it. I attempt to bond by acting younger than my age; predictably, he and all his friends mock me behind my back. He's kind of a whore, but I have to accept it, since he's much better-looking than me.

Well, at least Glenn is a liberal. He sounds insufferable, but at least he's doing some good somewhere.

What is it with famous gay men and twinks? Is it that no one their own age can put up with them? Or thay just can't ear getting older? I enjoyed being 23 but I certainly don't want to be that age again and hanging out with a bunch of them would be my idea of hell. He sounds more like a father figure than a lover.

I heard Glenn on Signorile's show and love the guy. I wanted to read about his rescuing puppies and did a Google search. Instead of his regular Salon blog I came across what appears to be a 'secret' blog of his. Has he talked about it before? It's called "GGDrafts". It appears to be subscription only but if you link to a story inside it's free for some reason. I'll put the link to the dog story below. Has Glenn talked about his secret blog before?

How is it sweet? According to the article GG met his bf in 2004, 7 years before the article.

In the article the bf is 19! That means that GG met the bf at 12!!! TWELVE!

Good lord, R42: the article clearly says they met when Greenwald was 38 and the BF was 19.

No, he met Miranda in 2004

[quote]By 2004 he had tired of litigating, and was also at the end of an 11-year relationship with Achatz. He rented an apartment in Rio de Janeiro, expecting to remain there for two months. Emotionally drained, he says, "The last thing I was looking for was another relationship. Especially in Rio." But on his first day on the beach, he met Miranda.

Judgmental people here today.

by Anonymousreply 4506/23/2013

He doesn't seem like a liberal AT ALL!? That article seemed to be skirting (sorry) the fact that he's a BIG TIME CONSERVATIVE!

Especially with more and more details emerging about the so called "scandal" at the NSA. It already seems like another anti Obama smear. Also, since he's the one that allowed a pictorial with his hot young boyfriend, I will "go there". I agree with the poster above who "translated" G.G.'s condescending comments about the boyfriend. All the gay men I've ever known who try to make being with a much younger guy work,have many things in common. Not least of all being control! They like being able to lord over the younger one. His house,his rules,his money,his sexual gratification,his friends,his timetable etc. etc.

One other common denominator is the inevitable resentment the young one will feel,and eventually begin to exhibit. That's why the G.G.'s are always trading-in the young one for another less mouthy,less disgruntled "new" young one! These guys leave a trail of fucked-over ex-lovers,and will never have a fulfilling mature relationship,nor do they deserve one.

It's funny looking at the boytoy's page. Only two pictures of him with his keeper Greenwald, and the pics don't look particularly romantic.

LOTS of pictures of boytoy drinking and partying with his (same age) friends. Lots of shirtless pics for his followers on FB. But only those two cold pics of him and the 'love of his life'.

It's amazing because it looks exactly like what it ugly middle age rich guy who bought himself a permanent escort. Yuck.

Recently leaked NSA documents definitively prove that R66 keeps bodies of dead rentboys in his basement.

by Anonymousreply 6806/23/2013

I can disagree with Greenwald without slut-shaming him and his boyfriend.

The relationship seems stable and balanced. The age difference is notable but not a dealbreaker by any means. They seem like a perfectly nice couple with a good life in Rio.

by Anonymousreply 6906/23/2013

R66's assessment seems spot-on. The BF's page reveals very little connection to Glenn at all. What could they have in common? One is an old, rich Anglophone Jew, the other a young, poor Lusophone mixed-race man.

by Anonymousreply 7006/23/2013

Greenwald has a few things right but is a complete hack.

To defend Assange, he wrote a pathetic attack on the Swedish legal system as not being up to American due process standards. Such a fucking joke.

I think he's mentally ill. It's one thing to acknowledge that government is out of control. To say anything goes and Manning, Assange and others are not only heroes but should be immunized legally to the point of defaming people and entire countries makes you a loon.

by Anonymousreply 7106/23/2013

Greenwald looks like Mark Zuckerberg in the photo (yuck). The young bf is gorgeous.

by Anonymousreply 7306/24/2013

Just looking at pictures his boyfriend could pass as straight. Do you think that is why he was attracted to him? We all know there are many gay men who are into "straight-acting" men. It dispels the myth some gay men have that masculinity is entire innate and only heterosexual males have it. The characteristics gay men find attractive are learned, it's learned in the formative years. An informal schooling of masculinity that guys who largely only associate with other guys go through. Gay men like Ross Mathews grow up with largely female friends and they adopt some characteristics along the way.

Glenn Greenwald is a smart guy and I agree with a lot of what he says, but not everything. He's a dog lover and has rescued dogs from the streets and found them homes. He also fights for the underdog. That tells me he is going to be very careful with the boyfriend and try not to take advantage. As someone noted, he has a fair amount of money now, so if he and this guy didn't share some values, he could find someone else. Who knows how long it will last, but these days there are no guarantees in any relationship.

They're all looking to leave Brazil--but wherever they go, they isolate into gaggles of Brazilian ex-pats who just want to party and sleep. Every one of them shallow, stupid, and lazy as fuck.

And boy-howdy do they love their mamas!
