What say you?

I applaud this couple for being so open about their struggle with mental illness.

Wow, a chainmail tattoo. That's really something. Sounds like a great guy, although the elementary school in Chiang Mai is a bit creepy.

Dreadful tattoos, that goes without saying. The blue contact lenses just look fake.

by Anonymousreply 302/14/2013

The tattoos--what needs to be said beyond the fact that they make the men whose skin they ruin look like trash.

The contacts are notably trashy, though. You don't see too many men who are so stupid to try to pull that off.

His botox and eye color make him look like a reptile. The boyfriend looks like someone who reguarly appears on Machofucker.

Gee, I only have a necktie in that pattern.

I don't know what's worse, the Dante tattoo or the inhuman contact lenses. But they both spell out the same thing: trying too hard.

R3, and the rest of his face looks natural?

Creepy not to mention yuck!

R13, wow. That's pathetic. A desperate attempt to appear as macho as possible.

I agree r14. Hideous, and toxic -- loaded with heavy metals.

He's clearly had all this plastic surgery; he's all roided out within an inch of his life; he's had tattoos to completely disfigure his arm and his crotch; he's completely shaved... he's the most unnatural looking guy I can imagine.

If he had not had all the plastic surgery (but had the ONE plastic surgery he has oddly not bothered to have, which is to have his ears pinned back!), and allowed his body hair to grow (he could even just trim it!), and didn't have the tattoos, and were worked out but not roided up, he would be attractive. But in his quest to be perfect, he looks like a monster.

BPJ sent me naked photos of himself once, asking me please not to share them.

Living in WeHo, I've seen Ben around for years. 5 years ago, saw him at CVS (on La Cienega/San. Mo.) ,and thought he looked hot.Since then I've watched his progression (or regression) into what you see here. The plastic surgery, ears pinned, lips plumped,tats. Saw him last month at Capitol Drugs, and could only think WTF ? How did this handsome, uber-built, sexy man turn into , well, look at the pic, then google what he USED to look like.

by Anonymousreply 2102/14/2013

This is one step away from gender identity issues. When you are so very unhappy with the body and look which you are given by birth that you twist and cut yourself like you are a bonsai tree then you really have some (mental) issues.

I mean in this case it's not even about holding on to that young-ish look.

by Anonymousreply 2202/14/2013

I think I read years ago he had plastic surgery when he was younger. I don't see any evidence of any recent procedures. He was one of the first gay celebrities I read about and looked up online. Ironically, he was the voice over for an animal show I watched. Once I heard his voice in an interview I connected the two. Looking at his twitter photos he looks to be about the same size, muscle mass-wise, as he was 7 years ago. The Mike Ruiz picture at R13 is morphed. Mike morphs many of the guys he photographs for that series. I think it's a Tom of Finland influence. He has gotten a lot of tattoos in the past 7 years.

He also suffers from Gay Middle-Name Syndrome. He should form a support group with Dustin Lance Black and Neil Patrick Harris.

Utterly vile.

by Anonymousreply 2602/15/2013

My ex actually dated BPJ a couple years back and would name drop him all over Facebook. "My boyfriend Ben Patrick Johnson and I..." etc. So naturally I looked the guy up (I'd never heard of him but assumed he was 'somebody' if he was being name dropped like that. His body of work looked quite impressive. He seemed quite down to earth and accomplished based on the things I read. Good job, a gay rights advocate, author...impressive, right? Aaaaaand, then I saw his pictures. A complete and utter contradiction of everything I'd envisioned from reading about the guy. Looks-obsessed, obvious body dismorphia, likely incredibly shallow, etc, etc, etc. Yuck, just yuck! And his voice creeps me out.

by Anonymousreply 2702/15/2013

In today's reality TV obsessed world it's highly important to flaunt your mental issues. You never know when a producer sees your latest meltdown clip or car crashed face pic and thinks that this is total Reality TV material.

I am surprised Ben Patrick Johnson wasn't on The Amazing Race yet with some soulmate or random hook-up he met the night before.

Fuck you queens are awful. Just awful. If wany of these posts were even remotely funny then it might be acceptable but not - they're not.

Shouldn't we be very thankful that this guy is out there being honest about who he is and what he stands for and furthering gay rights? Our rights???

You cowards wouldn't know anything about that though would you! You obese, vacuous, ancient, basement dwelling queens would rather just knock somebody down who is actually doing something for the gays. You make me sick.

As for whatever surgery he has had done - who cares? If it floats his boat then whatever.

Now - if you wanted to talk about someone who truly looks disgusting because of the amount of plastic surgery they have had done then let's look no further that the hideously ugly Cher who does NOTHING for the gays.

by Anonymousreply 3002/15/2013

Incidentally - I have never heard of this guy before reading this thread. I am just disgusted about you cunts knocking one of our own.

This is why there isn't a gay community.

r30 and r31 are the only intelligent words i have read on this thread.

The other comments are just so bitchy and pointless. Are you all that shallow. The man has done so much much for the gay community. What have you done, except for put other gay men down for their insecurities - we all have them.

You just sound pathetic.

I have a few of Ben's books. And he has a great voice over career. I remember seeing a nude of him on the internet a long while back and he is hung like the proverbial horse. I'm sure he's happy and can give a rat's ass what anyone else thinks. I thought I had read years ago that his preference was black guys ...but I guess that's why it's just called a preference.

I always thought he was a hot monkey man.

I'm genuinely glad if he's happy; but I seriously doubt someone that obsessed with altering his physical appearance and with being in the public eye as much as possible "can give a rat's ass what anyone else thinks."

Looks like one of the creatures in Avatar, except with over-plucked brows and beady eyes.

Tiny, beady eyes.

I know him (through work) and he only goes for black guys. Plucked to an inch of his life.

by Anonymousreply 5202/15/2013

I knew him from around WeHo roughly 1995-98.

Dated only black guys back then and didn't look so freakish. but that was eighteen years ago.

by Anonymousreply 5302/15/2013

The fact that he has opted to change his appearance so drastically invites comments. It is a separate issue from his work and activism.

I agree with R21. Years ago he was a very hot looking man. Obviously, he believes the things he's done has improved his looks but I think R47 makes a good point.

by Anonymousreply 5402/15/2013

R42 here .... well, in my defense the pic was a side view (in B & W) and it looked bigger to me. Whoops. Still like him and most guys that look a bit simian (like JP Pitoc)

Does he have a body dysmorphic disorder? Poor guy, all I want to do is give him a hug and tell him that he's pretty the way he is.

by Anonymousreply 5802/16/2013

It's heartbreaking to see him when he was young and, presumably, with a normal body.

There's no indication he's anything other than a kind, decent person, but he's ruined his physique.

The "Woot!" boyfriend with the haddock-skin tattoo left Ben and ran off with a safe-sex-optional rent boy. Ben is happier with TJ.
